Re: C65 Super Compressor - Deep Blue

That is really nice. The brushing and polishing on the case looks really good. I bet those indices reflect light like baubles on a Christmas tree. It's all very coherent too, with the orange carried over in to the crown and compression ring on the back. The blue is of course superb.

Re: The things they write on watch dials

I wonder at what point "Quartz" disappeared and why? Just re-reading your original post. I think 'quartz' probably disappeared from watch faces when quartz watches almost completely replaced mechanicals. I think, in truth, if you were in the market for a mechanical in the 70s you would have to go t...

Congrats, looked at that earlier, Andrew. Think it turned out really well...you have been well and truly assimilated by the cult. :lol: :lol:

Re: My new C60 Blue LE

Now doesn't that look good. It arrived on the CW site after some other new watch launches, this created quite a bit of excitement on the forum. Welcome to the forum, too. There's some good banter to be had on here. :wave:

See what I mean...so unnecessary. Pelagos, 500mtr would have sufficed.

Take a look at a Tudor Pelagos... A fine diver spoiled by the Old Testament in the bottom half of the dial.

Re: Worried I’m getting old!

Gold, when done well - as is generally the case with most luxury watch brands - can be a thing of beauty. It should gently murmur class, not Jimmy Saville or Blankety Blank chequebook and pen. As for your watch shortlist, I'd be going with the blue Santos with the applied silver numerals. The bracel...

Re: C60 Titanium V1

According to your sales post on the above watch it comes with 60cm of water resistance, just thought I'd mention it. It's certainly very black ops looking. :D

Re: Watch storage and/or display

Today a watch box that I found and purchased on Amazon arrived. When I saw it advertised I thought it looked fantastic, its reviews were frankly stellar. The quality looked amazing, and I thought it looked very classy. Most incredible of all, I got it for £31.99...yes, you did read that right. Look...

Re: The cult of Seiko

They also produce everything under one roof, right down to the basics such as lubricating oils, batteries etc. I think of, and appreciate this every time I glance at any of my Seiko watches. That's a great pointer, and makes them uniquely placed in watch manufacturing terms. Even the mighty Rolex a...

Re: The cult of Seiko

Well, first off, thanks for all the replies so far. Like many people on here I watch a lot of YouTube videos on various watches and manufacturers. I'm including a link from the Urban Gentry channel which is actually on the Seiko 5, and how it is pretty much the greatest entry point in to mechanical ...

Re: The cult of Seiko

I would imagine that there is sufficient interest in the brand that is could almost have its own discussion thread on the forum, assuming it doesn't exist already? I have a hunch that what you might possibly be suggesting is that it should have its own section or sub forum. Just to clarify, that wa...
