Re: Clearance Returns

Blast! Looks as if I missed out on another haul....

Do CW usually follow the Black Friday trend? Perhaps if I keep my powder dry for another few days?

Re: Clearance Returns

They seem to keep re-stocking every so often. I’m keeping fingers crossed for a pre-Christmas mass drop as I’ve blown most of my watch budget recently! Still looking for a Morgan C1 3Wheeler to come up. My most recent purchase from a previous search should be delivered early next week. Toes crossed ...

Re: Clearance Returns

Thanks. A brief phone call to CW Towers this morning and I was told that shipping was taking about 3-5 working days after an order was placed. So, landing date about this time next week...? Happy Days! Oh, and a follow-up question about my pre-order Sandhurst suggests that might be with me for the w...

Re: Clearance Returns

Oh dear....
One of them has just leapt into my basket. And it checked out all by itself!

Another custom leather strap for the C65 GMT - beautifully soft and subtle “swamp” green/brown vintage leather:

Re: Looks like we're getting a white dial trident gmt

Love the C65 GMT.
Love the Explorer II with its white dial.
Just blown my watch fund on a pre-order for a Sandhurst Series 1
Expletive deleted.....

PS - I hope the GMT white dial has black edging on the hands. It will be a sod to tell the time without that extra definition!

Re: COSC Regulation of a Movement?

Thanks for the detailed and informative responses, everyone. Ok, so my reasons for doing this? Just “because” and “can I” really. I greatly respect the time, skill and effort getting a movement regulated to COSC and I would love the feeling in the back of my mind that the item I have on my wrist has...

COSC Regulation of a Movement?

This is a hypothetical question, but might become reality. I’d like to add a COSC certified (dive) watch to my collection. Accuracy is always important to me and I quite like the idea of the little certificate too. The issue is size of watch; ideally I’d like it to be the smaller case size that CW d...

Re: CWL of the day

A dull and gloomy day here, so I’m hoping the little pop of orange on my C65 GMT will brighten things up a tiny bit 94E6679A-BA99-4D8B-B175-96372171ED38.jpeg Also a good chance to break in its new strap - custom veg tanned leather in distressed vintage khaki. 94E6679A-BA99-4D8B-B175-96372171ED38.jpe...

Re: C65 Trident Vintage MK2 or Tudor Black Bay 36mm

Those are two very different watches; different aesthetics, different prices, different manufacturers.... Saying that though, I was in a similar position last month and stuck with my C65 Trident Vintage MK2 over a purchase of a BB. I bought the C65 when it was first released. I got it on a leather s...

Re: Good customer service with CW

Always good to see someone praise the positives rather than harp on about the negatives!
I’m glad your watch buying process went well, enjoy.

Re: Boxing the C3

Definitely looks better on the leather and will be mighty fine to wear in 3 months.

Re: Anyone fancy a Coke?

Very nice!

It’s a more subtle, subdued shade of red than I have seen in other brands so it does the job but does not shout it in your face.

Congratulations on the effort!
