Re: I want to like it, but….

For me it is the C60 Elite Titanium. I want to love this watch and it should fit right in my wheelhouse. Dive watch, matte dial and bezel, fully graduated bezel, date... But I can't get past the small details. The underline from 0-16 minutes looks wrong. It should stop at 15 minutes. I can't put my...

Re: C60 Graphite Edition £640 on bracelet!!!!

Ditto in the regret that it was not a 39/40mm version.
Disappointed not to have had an email and therefore missed out anyway.
Oh well, no matter :-)

Re: Watch repair breakdown

I’ve had to send a couple of my CW watches for service/repair over the years and, in the past, the information I have received has been rather “binary”. It has been delivered, it will be serviced, it will be repaired, it is on its way back to you etc. I really like this extension on what work has be...

Re: Non CW of the Day

Finally time to swap straps for some more festive colours…

Can’t decide on a specific combination right now so I guess I’ll just mix and match.
Keep well and have a lovely festive time everyone.

Going grey today, matching watch and clothing to the weather… 621AA18E-7F15-4013-B1AC-B05FA6B13292.jpeg Grand Seiko SBGV245 with one of my custom, hand-sewn leather straps. Actually, something about this watch head/dial makes it work with pretty much any colour strap I chuck on it :-) Keep well, C

Re: There's Camel Vintage Oak and then there's Camel Vintage Oak

Quick question - does the newer strap have a small ribbon to keep one of the retainers from drifting too far along the strap? If so, then this style has been made by a totally different manufacturer (as far as I am aware). As a result, the leathers they source are likely to be very different from th...

Re: Drinking then spending

I buy far, far too much tut after a glass or two. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve woken up, slightly worse for wear, and see eBay alerts on my phone congratulating me on my latest purchase. So far, nothing too excessive or expensive, but I think I’m keeping Mr Postman busy with my returns… Ke...

Re: Oops!

Wear it. Ding it. Enjoy it :-) Every watch I have had from new has its own fair share of scars now. I recognise each and every one of them and that all tell a part of the watch’s story. I have sent many watches in for service/ repair and I have always insisted that no work is done to polish out any ...

New Military Series - Cranwell, Sandhurst and Dartmouth

Just spotted that a Series 2 of the military trio are up for pre-order. Sandhurst with a new handset, a bronze case as well as a steel version, Cranwell with a smaller case size and different dial and an all blue Dartmouth. Dartmouth is still 41mm case, but down to 46mm lug to lug. I think handset c...

Re: Customer service and appreciation better or worst?

Big, big thumbs up from me. I’ve not had the need to deal with them for a couple of months, but every single contact that I have had has been well mannered, efficient and positive. The only fly in the ointment has been DPD who have disgraced themselves and proven to be utterly incompetent each and e...

This watch was bought after the passing of a very dear friend a few years back; seems only right and correct to wear it to mark today.
Keep well,
