Re: I’ve come to a cross road with CW

It's probably more a give way sign than a full on crossroad. Just let the current models pass you by until the touch paper is lit again. CW are prolific if nothing else. As the saying goes, "never say never."

Re: Problem with my C63 - is this covered by 60/60?

Surely there must be a 'metaphysical CS' dept located on the 13th floor of CW Towers? Staffed by MIB type characters that look for anomalies in happiness radiation emitted by new watch customers and new model launches? Perhaps headed up by an individual with a crystal ball and deck of tarot, with bo...

Re: What I know today I didn't yesterday

That I'd be putting a bronze field watch up on the 'what watch are you dreaming of' thread only for CW to choose to release their very own version within hours, the Sandhurst v2.

Re: Incoming, just pulled the trigger, new boots for this bad boy…

I really dislike the phrase “beater”. I think it devalues the watch as if it’s not worth being cared for. I completely agree with you. Even the cheapest of watches will be a reliable timing partner with some nice design features. 'Beater' has an air of insouciance about it that I find unappealing. ...

Re: King Charles’ watch of choice

I also like Charles' approach of "buy once, buy well". It's certainly a sustainable approach as quality items outlast those that are more cobbled together. I've always sought to buy the best quality of anything I was looking for, cash flow permitting of course. Des I’ve taken this approac...

Re: Problem with my C63 - is this covered by 60/60?

I think you should discuss you writing a guest piece for the next episode of Loupe, when Mike France comes back to you, naturally. It should be centred around the point you broker in your OP: Call me crazy, but among watch enthusiasts isn’t it simply taken as a given that when one finally receives a...

Agreed, they really all look superb to me. The Stanhope has so much visual interest going on with different textures, patterns and dial features. The case is elegant and so different; my only concern being would you spend your life puffing on it and polishing it.

Great photo, Guy. The film 'Tron' came to mind immediately with that lume shot.

Re: Strap roll up

I just remembered I had this canvas storage roll that I wasn’t using for anything. It seemed the perfect solution for some straps.
