Re: Non CW of the Day

Draken Kalahari.

Re: Video interview with Chris Ward himself

^^^^^ Since I joined the forum in November 2013, a few numbers have often been mentioned in various threads, for number of watches sold and year on year growth. If I recall correctly the numbers always seem to have been 20,000 watches and 20% year on year growth. Neil That is also my impression for...

Re: CW c65 Automatic vs. Oris Sixty-Five (Movember)

For me the C65 wins hands down:

better looking (IMHO) especially in blue. I also prefer the slimmer hands and bezel
half the price
150m water resistance without a screwdown crown
Both use the SW200 movement

Done deal for me, though I will probably go for a C65 GMT. Of course YMMV!

Re: Shocking repair time

Evening gents. C1 GMPR UPDATE!! As you know, (and weary of this saga no doubt), I returned my watch after receiving it scratched after 9 weeks at CW being repaired as it wasn’t self winding. Well I sent it back on Monday and was confirmed received by Robert in CS on Tuesday. He’d promised to turn i...

Re: Anyone into G-Shocks?

I have a GWN1000 for sailing (replaced the previous 15 year old version that I jiggered trying to change the battery) everything you need for off grid, wouldn't be without it.

Re: Serial number help

Apologies, Kip has it.

To confirm I checked my own C60 certificate and I have transposed incorrectly dial and bezel letters, but I knew that there was no white bezel so the OP's certificate did not make sense.

Curiouser and curiouser!

Re: Serial number help

SK = silver case/black bezel
W = white dial
K = black leather strap

Though designated 42mm, the case size is actually 43mm overall.

Re: Questions - Chat with Chris - Manchester GTG - 27th April 2019

Any possibility of a COSC day-date SH21? Tip top would be with Power Reserve!

Thanks Guy.

Re: Story Of A New Watch - It’s Not An Explorer, But It’s Certainly Been On A Journey

I have a question please, primarily for the senior members and high volume posters of this forum. As a relative newbie, I just want to understand why only 6 members saw fit to comment on the incredible generosity of a fellow forum member, namely Brian? If I was a senior member of a forum and that p...

Re: Shocking repair time

A depressing thread indeed (sorry Paul).

CW do seem to need a procedural overhaul in repairs - "there's never enough time to do it right, but there's always time to do it again".

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

I have not bothered to track down the proscribed images, but this sounds disappointing though I shall wait until the launch and a bit of acclimatisation before passing judgment.

If CW have shot themselves in the foot (IMHO) at least the C65 GMT is still tempting.

Re: What is the rarest Trident colour combination???

Ahh, but does rare equate with nobody wanted them so very few produced? LEs excepted, natch.

Disclosure: I too have a red bezel/white face Trident ("Polish") in 43mm which I am very pleased with.
