Re: I nearly bought a green Sealander auto but...

Congrats!! It’s funny, the Seiko looks like a much bigger watch to me. It appears that there’s a difference in the L2L measurement between the two?

Mrs Claus asked Santa what the weather would be like for the day? Peering out of the window Santa replied, ‘mmm, looks like reindeer!’

Post modern irony

I watched this video from the talking hands a few days back and thought it might be worth sharing for those that might not have lucked upon it. It features an Apple watch, no an H Moser, no an Apple watch...no, most definitely it's an H Moser . And what a stunning watch imo. Serious watch making cre...

Good work, Andrew. You certainly are a live wire on the forum. Keep tapping away, and wishing you well, sir. From one of the few people on this forum that owns less CW’s than your good self. 😂😂😂

That's a great capture, Steve. I really like the thinner bezel on these compared to the Explorer II's. :D

Re: Are CW Too Affordable?

Nope!! I'd disregard the 3 x material cost spin, too. If anything CW might be highlighting the fact that the mid to luxury Swiss watch market is considerably overpriced. Let's be honest, disregard the brand name on the dial, when a watch says it is designed and manufactured in Switzerland you are pa...

YouTube reviews seem to be everywhere. I guess you only see them if you're looking Some inexcusable peeves from me: Fact check - Get the basics right.

Re: Non CW of the Day

New in today… I really didn't like this when it first appeared at Basel 2018 – I thought the faux patina was a step too far. However, tastes change and when you know that each dial is hand 'sprayed' so each watch's patina is unique, it kind of makes sense. It comes with a nice single pass NATO as w...
