Re: Automatic - Why?

Returning to the original post; I think the vast majority of people on here do prefer mechanical watches. Personally, I have no issue with quartz or their finite tick, which seems to really bother some. As I've said before, a watch is about more than the power source to me. A mechanical watch is ace...

Re: Automatic - Why?

For me there is a unique quality to an automatic watch. Unlike a quartz, which can largely get by without your involvement, perhaps changing a battery every three or four years, an auto derives it's power and momentum through its wearer, either by winding the crown or wearing. That is incredibly tac...

Re: Managing Single-Handed - the MeisterSinger Metris reviewed in depth

Enjoyed reading that this morning, thanks for posting. First off, I loved your very evocative depiction of what a pre-Covid holiday used to look like. I found myself lusting back to similar experiences in my past; where time takes on a different dimension when strolling down bougainvillea-draped cob...

That's a beauty. Love the hands with their small strips of lume. The raised numerals are lovely too. :clap:

Re: What WAS I thinking of?

That's an elegant watch; simple but classic. Why oh why didn't CW stick with that badge at the 12 position, I think it's a nice bit of design. The 'London' seems a bit ancillary. But, I think that's definitely a watch work keeping, particularly as you have played catch and release once before...

Wow...again, great photos, thanks for sharing. For my money this is the best diver that CW offers, very unique. I love the way the Ombre- finish dial descends in to darkness towards its outer edge.

Re: C60 Trident Ombre COSC LE

Here's mine. I love it, get comments all the time on its appearance. 20200321_095403.jpg Wow...what an outstanding photo, and a gorgeous watch, too. I'm getting quite a compulsion to buy one of these, just think I'll hang it out for a really good offer to appear <15% would be nice. Do you know if y...

Re: A tale of two dive watches - a member’s personal review

First off, enjoyed reading the comparison, thanks for putting it together. Two lovely watches, too. For me, has to be the Sub. I just think it is the template for the ultimate dive/tool watch. The deep castellated bezel and crown guard are key features for me. It really is impossible to find anythin...

Re: Bahnstormer_vRS - CWs (plus) and Other Brands - August 2019

Woah... Never seen anything like that! If there is a collective noun for watches, when they reach your number, it should be a 'proliferation'. No...'murmuration' is better, a better visual image, me thinks. It doesn't look like you do anything approaching small(ish); and heaven's forbid, dress. In t...

Re: C60 Trident Ombre COSC LE

Morning all... I was hopeful that my OP might bring in some replies of this watch over the weekend, but it appears not. There doesn't appear to be any photos in the CW gallery, which was updated little over a week ago. I think it's a lovely looking watch with much to admire. It would have been nice...

Re: C60 Trident Ombre COSC LE

I have this one, not my most frequent wearer but I like it. Apologies for the wonky pic Thanks for the photo, Chris, that's a brilliant shot, really. The CW logo and placement has always been something of an issue for me, but I find it seems to blend in to the dial with this watch. I love the way t...

Re: CW's first TV Advert

'Ingeniously English, reassuringly Swiss' might've been a better strapline...

Interesting that they went with this sapphire number for their first TV advert, The watch could be a little niche for a lot of tastes. Still, it certainly has a visual presence, the watch that is.

Re: C60 Trident Ombre COSC LE

I ordered a nearly new one and really liked it, great matt grey finish on the ceramic bezel, but in the end returned it only because I managed to pick up an Oris Divers 65 shortly after at a really good price and couldn't afford to keep both. Had a few other photos but annoyingly deleted them a few...
