Logo at 9 o'clock poll

I've read through all of the 400 comments on the Urban Gentry YouTube review of the C65 Trident GMT. It's subjective of course, but I've categorised the comments along the same lines as the 4 options in this poll. To try to be fair, anyone who said they really loved the watch I put as a lover of 9 ...

Re: Logo at 9 o'clock poll

Most of the worlds biggest brands never change their name or logo as its makes them instantly recognisable Rolls Royce, mcdonalds , apple , etc etc . Apple have changed their logo at least 5 times. OK, it's still an apple, but different colours. Rolls Royce have changed their RR logo, even if the c...

Re: Logo at 9 o'clock poll

They should have stuck with the original logo/name from their first cw watches. I don’t get why they keep changing the logo/name/position For one you end up with an “old model” watch Most of the worlds biggest brands never change their name or logo as its makes them instantly recognisable Rolls Royc...

Re: Heimdallr C60 Trident Homage/Clone/Whatever

Regardless of what your view of the watch is, Heimdallr have made a very close copy of the C60. Is it made from leftover Trident bits or not? The answer to that is not terribly clear cut. The orange blob Heimdallr arrived yesterday, so I’ve had a few chances to look at it and compare it to one of m...

Re: C60 Homage

Just a quick update re timing. The Heimdallr is running at a fairly consistent +7 seconds per day over the last 4.3 days. A comment also about the crown - it’s (obviously) closely styled after the MkII crown, but the finish is not as clean, with the outer edge having a sharp finish to the touch - n...

Re: C60 Homage

Cheap does not necessarily = value for money. It'll take time to establish accuracy, durability, reliability, customer service etc. Only then can VFM be called with confidence Ok then the c60 homage is a load of rubbish and is only worth $20 everyone happy now [emoji6] Read the post again, carefull...

Re: C60 Homage

Mine has arrived and I’ll give a very quick summary here - I’ll do a longer and more detailed run through in a couple of days, as I’m busy at the moment. I’ll compare measurements with a set of digital calipers etc, and I plan to see if a trident bracelet will fit the case. I was prepared to be dis...

Re: C60 Homage

In a way, it's kudos to CW that they are being copied. One step closer to being the Rolex of the internet. Cw are a million miles away from being rolex - sorry pal Your sarcasm detector isn't particularly strong is it? No because these people on this forum are single minded and think cw is some for...

Re: C60 Homage

Mr greyman is , he’s calling them “cheap chinese knock offs” That sounds like he’s knocking them to me You keep telling us how cheap they are compared to the Trident They are Chinese you will agree? The definition of knock off is a copy or imitation of a more expensive product Which part of that do...

Re: C60 Homage

Nobody is knocking China as a manufacturer. We are all too aware that CW has parts made there and we are also aware of the VFM the C60 represents. This homage/knock-off is only VFM because CW have put the legwork into the R&D etc which these guys are now exploiting. It's all pretty simple to unders...
