Re: Another Elite 1000 (mk3) arrived!

There is more coming I am sure. I was told by CW support that there is a titanium bracelet on the way that fits the Elite and the mk3 in general. Surely they wouldn’t release that just for a 300 units limited edition that’s all sold out. From their email a month ago this should happen in the next co...

Non CW of the Day

Keeping with the theme: This came home with me after a holiday in early June. No intention of buying anything either, but the dealer was cleverly placed right in front of the lifts on the way down from the room inside the hotel. Don’t regret it! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190706/46d854e5695...

Re: When was the last time you used your timer on your wrist trinket

Yep - bezel timing for me. But I like the reverse count-down style bezel most. I fly a lot for work and usually wear a Sinn when traveling with this count-down bezel. When taking flights I set it to the time that the gate closes and the bezel will give me the number of minutes I have to get to the g...

Re: Mühle Glashüttte

I think that’s my watch you saw. :-) They do some nice pieces and I would say they fall under the german “form follows function” type of watches like Sinn, Damasko, etc... usually ETA / Sellita movements. Prices above Christopher Ward but well below Swiss counterparts, so good value generally, if no...

As dressy as it gets for me - all while keeping with the Titanium theme.

Looks great on that strap!!! Thank you. Got lucky on Etsy. Even fits the original buckle. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190629/45e2884873a248a3aa12e4f255783f39.jpg Which Etsy seller is that from?

Re: Buying a CW watch in the future?

Ha, that makes a lot of sense.

The most annoying is that this kind of behavior Just detracts from those users that had genuine problems they wanted support and help with :-(

Re: Buying a CW watch in the future?

Honestly - I wouldn’t let the reports on the forum influence that decision much. Hoe many individual issues were reported? 6 or 7? They are anonymously reported cases... none have been verified and we have not heard CW’s in any of those either. I bought 3 watches off them in the last 4 months. I als...

Re: Another Elite 1000 (mk3) arrived!

So does anyone know if this rough winding is normal for our movements? I wonder if there is extra gaskets and other waterproofing bits in the crown shaft that are the cause if this? This is the only watch I have with that depth rating so I have nothing to compare it to. I would love to hear from mo...

^^^ Agreed :thumbup: 0B1415BA-D7AD-4E4E-B694-E6E02EE9D56E.jpeg :-) That is really nice. I am still hoping they will make a Titanium 104 at some stage. A nickel allergy stops me from wearing any Steel... Here the Ti 103 LE with Chrono in full swing: https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190627/ec58d601...

Re: Does CW sell returned watches?

Judging by the number of faults highlighted lately, quite possibly. There must be many watches returned so no doubt many will be then resold like any other mediocre mass sales venture. Be interesting to know their returns' rate. Judging by posts of late, my guess is it's likely to be very high. I d...
