Re: UPDATE CW lume quality and the C65 Trident GMT

Specsavers have a 2 for 1 offer on at the moment. Designer frames too! :clap: :lol: In opening up these threads I have attempted to gain the opinions of CW owners and watch enthusiasts over a what I consider to be a relevant point. I have also raised these views directly with Christopher Ward and J...

Re: UPDATE CW lume quality and the C65 Trident GMT

It’s great to see they have taken my remarks and suggestions seriously (with Chris contacting Jorg whilst is on holiday too!) and may act upon some of them. I’ve also made some other suggestions too with regards to making this model a dedicated GMT watch which would include a bi directional bezel. I...

UPDATE CW lume quality and the C65 Trident GMT

For those whom have been following this thread I started and my issues over the lume on the C75 GMT here as promised is a section from one of the emails I’ve received from Chris and Jorg Bader; The most important factor for lume brightness is volume. Without big volume the best material or the best ...

Re: CW lume quality and C65 Trident GMT

I tested my lume last night. Charged the watch at 12.20am under a good, strong desk light and went straight to bed. Unplugged my alarm clock for total darkness except for a little light pollution coming through the curtains. I’m a light sleeper and checked the time several times during the night. T...

Re: CW lume quality and C65 Trident GMT

In an ideal world, what sort of reply were you hoping for from CW? Guy Sent from my Xperia XZ Premium using Tapatalk An acknowledgment that a watch at this price point and advertised as a diver watch has a least some usability in the dark. This watch has virtually none! CW introduces there dive wat...

Re: CW lume quality and C65 Trident GMT

Disappointed to say the least to get this reply from customer services. Clearly no knowledge. I will be contacting CW directly tomorrow. “The lume does need to be charged up to work to the full potential, 30 seconds is not enough for a full charge it may need a few hours at this time of year with t...

Re: CW lume quality and C65 Trident GMT

I wonder what they think on mobile phone forums!? Anyway Iooks as though we think in general the lume should be better than this, at least have a reasonable amount of usability. As in my original review it’s otherwise a fantastic watch in build, style, looks and accuracy. I’m waiting to see what CW...

Re: CW lume quality and C65 Trident GMT

The irony of the mobile phone as a counter argument on a watch forum and thread about what's reasonble to expect of a $1000 dive watch is hilarious really. +1. A phone isn’t a watch. At the risk of generalising, none of us needs a watch, but most of us on this forum have them (usually more than 1!)...

Re: CW lume quality and C65 Trident GMT

That’s not really the point though. You don’t normally buy luxury goods through ‘need’ or necessity. The C60 Trident is CW’s best seller, but how many of us actually ‘need’ 600m water resistance? Probably none of us. It’s advertised as a diver, good lume is part of the qualification of a usable div...

Not sure why you’d need a lume at night if you have ........ a mobile phone? That’s not really the point though. You don’t normally buy luxury goods through ‘need’ or necessity.

Re: CW lume quality and C65 Trident GMT

Genuine question..... A bright & vibrant lume looks lovely coming in from outside, in a photo etc etc... But does anyone actually use/need lume nowadays. I don't think I have ever used it! For me that sums it up. I keep my phone beside my bed at night whether at home or away in a hotel and just use...

Re: CW lume quality and C65 Trident GMT

I think it's made worse by the short day time hours and low light levels in winter. Regardless of how you use it, and I do use a watch to check time I note that of my 2 own and 3 step children aged between 16-23 only 1 has a watch since this Christmas because they do have phones stuck to the palms o...
