Re: watch strap question

I think the conclusion then is that it's better not to buy the CW "soft-touch" leather strap... seems like the it's much less durable than regular leather straps in terms of the top layer separating... Hmm, not so sure. Mine has been fine and this is the first time I have heard the issue raised, ma...

Re: Question about SH21 movement?

Ian,

I found it weird too when I first had my C8PR I couldn't see the second barrel move at all when I wound it . But likewise mine runs well within COSC and for the full five days, so I gave up worrying about it!

Re: Non CW of the Day

https://i.ibb.co/F7KDLDK/EE338384-B2-A5-433-F-A1-EE-D2414527-DE82.jpg I obviously like this. I’ve been investigating the strap options for mine. From an AD the Tudor strap is £136 but the separately supplied Tudor deployment is another £181 [-( I’d like someone to explain that to me? So maybe a str...

I can confirm that the leather Hirsch James is no problem with sea water, sand, pool water, river water, anything I've chucked at it. Its a fantastic strap.
Thanks Chris, that's good to know that you underwrite from practical exposure, I'll have to pick one up before too long.

Re: watch strap question

I would agree, however I have used the Hirsch performance leather straps in water without issue and here is the screen shot from the CW page which certainly implies they are waterproof. I think the glue coming away on my strap is directly related to pool use, but the creasing of the leather may not...

Re: watch strap question

Here are some photos of my blue soft touch strap. I bought this as it was advertised as being waterproof and wanted something to wear on my bronze trident in the pool on holiday. I assumed the deterioration was due to the chlorine as this is the state of the strap after just one week permanently on...

Re: watch strap question

Interesting. Guy, It does look as if the two examples of the yellow soft touch have more of a tendency to wrinkle than my older red version, which dates from mid last year. I wonder has the supplier recently changed the construction somewhat? Do you have any older versions (different colour scheme o...

Re: Today's Showroom Visit

Many thanks for that rundown Mikkei. Whilst the logo is not such an issue for me (though it is an issue) I have the same dilemmas. Much as I like the C65 Auto ( I did not know a blue GMT was coming - cool) I will wait to see the Trident 3 before deciding anything and I do think my first CW bracelet ...

Re: watch strap question

I have one of the soft touch leather and it's been for a total of some weeks, on and off. The strap displays some flex wrinkles around the buckle but no separation.

Re: C65 Trident Diver- push in crown

Being a simple soul who is always befuddled by science, I wish the manufacturers would stop using ATM / metres / feet and putting a whole range of different interpretations on the same data. I would like a simple scale where 1 = "Don't even breathe on it"; 2 = "OK to wash the dishes" and so on up t...

Re: C65 Trident Diver- push in crown

If I have read your analysis correctly you are comparing waving one's arms in the air and/or underwater. My sense is that you would create more dynamic pressure in the air as opposed to underwater given the resistance/density factor. correct. One could not move one's arm at anything like the speed/...

Re: Forum Survey Results

I have said it before, but I fail to recognise the forum as depicted by "75% strongly dislike the moaning, bitching, back biting, bickering, passive aggressive behavior, self-indulgent opinions..." Nor do I see any clique. From my experience the forum has been as welcoming as could reasonably be exp...
