Re: Questions - Chat with Co Founders - London GTG / CW Event - 31st August 2019

Customer service enhancement:

The big boys offer a "restore to new condition service" including many of their old models which supports their long term brand desirability strategy. Will CW offer such a service going forwards?

Re: C60 Apex Limited Edition Preview | Launches 28th August

But seriously, there is no point in buying any watch that you are too worried about wearing due to damage. I think this is where CW have a big gap in their services since they do not offer a ' return to as new condition' service that others in this price bracket do offer. Paul As part of CW wanting...

The case back will state "FORUM LIMITED EDITION 2020".

That's good, 2020 sounds so rounded!

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

Design:

#2 or second choice #5

Wording:

2. or 5. both work fine. If Trident is not on the dial it must obviously be on the case back along with FLE designation

Re: C60 Apex Limited Edition Preview | Launches 28th August

BREAKING NEWS Third published price list just released! https://i.ibb.co/n8mb3Gf/apex-price-3.png Math and exchange rate skills are still a challenge for CW.. not sure why they can't get it right. The pound is dropping fast against the USD. £ 3,495 = £ 2,912 ex VAT = USD 3,527 . Not even close to t...

Re: C60 Apex Limited Edition Preview | Launches 28th August

I too cannot understand the vitriol. CW have to move upmarket if they want to grow and be taken seriously and SH21 can be the foundation for high end pieces. Maybe they have overcooked the pricing on this one (it's not really to my taste either but some design elements are bold and/or pleasing) we'l...

Seriously impressive. I think this is a fabulous resource and hopefully it will boost worldwide CW credibility.

Many, many thanks to all involved.

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

And just "TRIDENT" ... https://i.ibb.co/LCzY2tw/fle-gmt-white-3.jpg Nice. And looking at these, the applied device and word mark harmonise as well as they could do. Also, getting happier with the sweep hand being only partially red, possibly even happier if it matches the GMT hand as suggested abov...

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

OK I might convince myself that the black second hand with red tip & circle would be one I would buy only if the all red was out. +1. Someone made the suggestion (I think it was Guy) that the second hand be white with red tip to match the GMT hand. Might be good to compare a visual? Whether all bla...

Disagree entirely. The black sweep hand is ho hum, while red lifts it out of the ordinary into something special. Too little is not enough.

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

Do we need a poll to determine which model from page 32 will be the final with/without an exhibition case back as well as glass type for case back? I ask as it would seem that any subsequent suggestions have gained little or no traction. I would say so, just so's we close it off. PS I also would ba...

I'll add my two cents, although we may be drifting off topic. Would the release of a "field watch" require a change from straight baton markers to Arabic numerals?
I would say so. Such a watch should be absolutely unambiguous IMHO.

Re: On the Trail of the Grail

My unrequited: patek-philippe-5054.jpg I almost bought one in a moment of insanity :oops: when I worked in the US and I think that makes it worse - so near and yet so far. Glimmer of hope is that they cost the same today in debased $ as when they were manufactured by Patek in the 1990s. Now only ava...

Re: Consolidating

At one point I reduced my collection down to three on the basis that would be all I needed to actually wear, but obviously it was not to be as it crept up again. Somehow I seem to find further options that fit in......

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

By "applied device" do you mean the twin flags? As far as I can see the flags on the C7 range look as if they are applied although I don't know if they'd be the right size for the proposed FLE GMT. Surely if they've been produced for another CW watch there'd be no need for new tooling? Am I wrong? ...
