Re: January 2022 Sale

But you're right, I still like the Mk3 regardless of what happens so I'll wait a bit to see if there's any January sale in 2022 and maybe I'll be quick enough to snag one at a discount. If not, I'll probably have to think about it some more because the 39mm C63 GMT in black is also really nice and ...

Re: UPDATE: Should I sell my stuck C60 600 Pro COSC SH21 Red Bezel 1 of 32 - 60/60 Guarantee denied at 5th Year

I'm trying to figure out how to phrase myself when replying back to the head of Christopher Ward's customer service department, since my emails to Mike France went nowhere in comparison. Apart from the obvious poor form of trying to avoid their responsibility under what is a 5 year guarantee, you M...

When I first saw the email I thought it was a wind up.

Re: C60 Concept

Given that the sale of all 210 units will generate under a €1,000,000. Once you take the development costs, materials, labour (general watchmaking and specialist), advertising etc, I see this as being more a labour of love than a cash cow for CW. It's perhaps a chance to show how far they've come a...

Re: C63 Sealander Collection

Looking at the new blue again, how close do you think the blue is to the blue, on the original blue bronze watch? Is it the same or darker? Try this: https://www.christopherward.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-cwnet-Site/en_GB/Compare-Show?pid0=C60-40ADA3-B00B0-VT&pid1=C63-39AGM3-S00B0-VC&pid...

Re: Blue Dial Sealander Automatic in Stock

No new colors for the C63 elite yet :( This blue fits in with the collection, but isn't anything too exciting. I agree, I would like to see a brighter elite. I like the blue GMT but it hasn't swayed me as I thought it would, a lack of a bracelet option is deal breaker anyway, no doubt will appear a...

Re: February '21 - Strap Sale

Missed out on this and now the link doesn't work :( Do you know if they are going to re-issue the page? Just a load of guesswork going on. My guess is that they’ll fix the issue and rerun the sale. They will still have a bunch on NN straps to sell on. :thumbup: ...guess it's just a case of reloadin...

The Dartmouth would be on my radar if it had a screw down crown, nice watch though.

Re: New C60 variants

Nah... there's insufficient contrast between the black and blue. Now it they'd done something similar but with a steel bezel like the C60 Sapphire then it would be of genuine interest, at least to me. I agree, hopefully that version is in the pipeline as we already have the C60 316l Limited edition...

Re: CW's first TV Advert

A few points: They used a motion control rig to move the watch, a very complex and expensive bit of kit. I have known people to spend days (and nights) perfecting moves and lighting. Anyone can buy FCP, not everyone can use it as the professional tool it is, not that I know what post production kit...

Re: CW's first TV Advert

I've read the CWorld Blog and as per usual Mike France paints a very noble and rosy picture of their actions - the advert (in this digital age) could have easily been made by a teenager using a decent camera with a dedicated macro lens, a small rotating platform / turntable, Final Cut Pro and an Ap...

. . . that they had been made with a degree of precision engineering way beyond the requirements at the price point of the watch.

Re: C60 Sapphire - New Release

I must say that I do like the C60 Sapphire with one reservation. There are 4 screws holding down the dial. If those screws were not meticulously aligned it would send my OCD into overdrive. scooter Thats a good point, Scooter. I've just looked at the pics on the website and they are not lined up at...

Re: CW's first TV Advert

It's a good job I already know the brand else, watching that, I'd be turned away from them straight away thinking 'who are these clowns'. The visual isn't that bad but that voice over?!
