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

At this kind of price, I would also be paranoid about wearing it. The C7 is ‘best’ occasions only and works in those settings. A big lairy orange diver wouldn’t work as well! Great to see CW pushing the boundaries again, but I’ll pass on this one. I wouldn't worry about wearing it for any activity ...

Re: C60 Trident Pro 600 Issues

When I last had my Rolex serviced in Singapore, I went in and asked them how much it would cost, they told me and I asked them what if they found problems. They simply said that the standard price dealt with ANY problem within the watch, as many parts as were required and whatever was needed to bri...

Re: Engraved braclets

Not my cup of tea, BUT I do appreciate the craftsmanship and skill that went into that. :clap:
I'd imagine if CW offered that service quite a few people would take them up on it. :thumbup:

Re: Has SH21 evolved since launch?

On my C1 GMPR the seconds jump back 5 seconds no matter how much it’s wound. Perfectly normal. Helps with accuracy when setting I was told. Evolved over time? Dunno. Mine packed up after two months. Then two months later had to go back again for regulation as it was outside COSC. Working ok at the m...

Re: C60 Trident Pro 600 Issues

I sent my C60 Trident Vintage in for a warranty repair at the beginning of the year for a stiff/grinding winding mechanism when manually winding the crown. This issue developed after about a year of ownership. The repair stated on the return invoice was "Clean reverse wheels." Included with the no ...

Re: C60 Trident Pro 600 Issues

As part of the service, CW will check that the timekeeping is within tolerance, -20/+20 sec per day for the C60. If you would like them to regulate it to the best for your movement they will do so, but may charge. That's interesting I assumed regulating the watch would be included as part of the se...

That doesn’t look right to me. One euro is still worth more than one US dollar.
If that euro price is correct @ 1.1150 usd to the euro the USD price should be $4872.

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

Wow. £££££££££ :shock:

Even if I liked the watch which I don’t, not at all attractive, and the QC/CS were up to it I certainly wouldn’t buy a CW for that price. Just wow. :shock:

Re: Decent Service From CW

Please that all is well with it now even though you were without it for 2 months. As said, you still had to call them a few times to get a response albeit a polite and professional one. Had you not called at all you would’ve waited 2 months in silence before seeing your watch. I’d be more impressed ...

Re: C65 - which bracelet?

Bracelet arrived today, I couldn’t be happier with it. I love the look of the blue face with the vintage oak leather but I’m equally impressed with the bracelet. Quick release would’ve been nice, but the bracelet matches the watch so well, I’m glad I bit the bullet. I love the sleek profile of the ...

Re: CWL of the day

No, we have gravy of course! Love gravy on my Sunday roast. Liquor is basically a parsley sauce. :thumbup: My experience of southern gravy is that is usually watery, if you can’t stand a spoon up in a mug of gravy without it falling to the side, it isn’t really gravy. We call that porridge, or ceme...

:lol: It was a step up admittedly. But don’t knock the national dish of cockney-land. :lol: I’m from the North, some of our local delicacies also hold a very limited appeal so I shouldn’t knock anything. If I’m ever down south I’ll have to give this liquor a try, especially as what you call gravy p...

Re: Summer Sale 2019

Just picked up a 43mm C60 Trident Pro 600 Vintage on bracelet 50% off for £330, let’s hope it’s as good as my recent Blue/Blue Trident. If it is, I’ve been damn lucky to hit on the Clearance page at the right time. Vintage arrived and both watch/box in mint condition. So that’s 2 Trident Pros on br...
