You do keep teasing us, don't you?
Looks good, in fact perfect, on the bracelet.
My current favourite.

Re: CWL of the day

C65 MK1 LE for my night shift tonight. Instagram @minimpi610 https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200802/08cd67d3326d11ef0bef76bc5b80979f.jpg Yeah, baby! Beautiful. As an aside, I was watching 'A Place In The Sun' the other day and my bad mood on realising it wasn't one with Laura Hamiliton, (who wea...

Re: Why no 3 hander sports watches

This was ever so close. In 40mm I would still own it. C65LE.jpg I was given mine for my birthday, which was a truly wonderful gift. Unfortunately, my friend didn't buy it on a bracelet, 'just' on a brown leather strap. And, you guessed it, because it was end of line CW stopped making the bracelet f...

Re: Why no 3 hander sports watches

This was ever so close. In 40mm I would still own it. C65LE.jpg Yeah, I own one of those. It's so NEARLY perfect, I can't help thinking CW snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Totally agree it should be 40mm and I think the seconds hand should have a lume dot. An important point which hasn't b...

Re: Opinions Please - C65 Trident - Bracelet or Strap

You can’t just lob that out there and leave it hanging. I find I need the durability of a dragon scale strap when venturing into Mordor. I did once lob it out and leave it hanging at a Buckingham Palace garden party. Nobody minded, in fact everyone seemed very impressed. As I recall Kate and Pippa ...

I like blue dial watches.

But will “blue is the new black” for sports/dive watches on a bracelet be a passing fad?

Re: C65 Dartmouth QC Question

I think you did the right thing to complain - it would drive me bonkers, it's the only thing I would ever see. And no, I don't think it's pedantic to worry/complain about it. My main concern is that a quality watch manufacturer is letting sloppy mistakes like this to occur and then thinking nobody w...

Re: Why no 3 hander sports watches

I have often thought of writing to CW with my designs for the perfect watch, (basically a 'Skyfall' Aqua Terra without the exorbitant price tag), and then, bless them, johncolescarr and nordwolf did it for me See above. Probably the blue for me, also looks great on brown leather. 38mm or 40mm? I'm ...

Re: Opinions Please - C65 Trident - Bracelet or Strap

I have a C65 Trident Classic LE, (the blue one, beautiful), and I have found that it works on a variety of straps depending on the occasion: Buckingham Palace garden party - brown leather. Returning the one, true ring to Mordor - grey nato etc. Be flexible and don't be bound by convention. (Unless y...

Re: CWL of the day

Morning all https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200727/7aff70c89a6887e65c86992bc1bc245f.jpg That is a lovely watch. I'm tempted by the blue. Does it wear big? No, it wears very well for the size, the C65 case has a nice slim profile too. My wrist is just over 6.5" if you want a reference point. So i...
