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...

Re: C60 Sapphire - New Release

. . . that they had been made with a degree of precision engineering way beyond the requirements at the price point of the watch. Guy Sent from my Xperia 5 using Tapatalk And that's a very good reason for not having a translucent dial on a watch that is less than GBP1K!, the screws could (and shoul...

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?! It's 1st May, not April! I think it does enough for anyone with an interest in watches who hasn't heard of CW to ...

Re: CW's first TV Advert

It will probably achieve the aim which is brand awareness, and the cheesy voice over (script and voice) will make it memorable!
I have no doubt that Mike's mate from BBH has a full campaign planned out, I hope it is successful for them.

Wonder if they are open to offers on that 30% off Blower ?
I think there is every chance, if it is same one that was in the New Year sale. It would be in the post before you put the phone down . . .

Re: Great move from CW

It’s difficult to see beyond the fact that thousands of people are dying horrible deaths, NHS staff are being run ragged and we are barely out of the starting blocks of this terrible situation. I’m firmly in the camp that sees this move by CWL as crass and so utterly irrelevant that it is cringe-ma...

I like the retro feel but just too cluttered for me. Maybe they are missing the input of CW in the design process?

Re: C65 Dartmouth - the good, the bad, but.....

Hopefully not the ugly! :silent: The watch is under warranty. The spinning rotor syndrome is obvious and doesn’t seem to be intermittent. I am hopeful that given how obvious the fault is, CW will themselves be rather embarrassed and ensure that as a warranty repair it is dealt with promptly. Neil A...
