Re: Another Elite 1000 (mk3) arrived!

So does anyone know if this rough winding is normal for our movements? This is what my C60 600 mk2 chronometer sounds like- which is the same movement as the Elite I believe. It's exactly the same as every other SW200 / 2824 watch I have (apart from my Tudor Ranger- that's admittedly a bit smoother...

Re: Another Elite 1000 (mk3) arrived!

I wonder if there is extra gaskets and other waterproofing bits in the crown shaft that are the cause if this? This is the only watch I have with that depth rating so I have nothing to compare it to. I would love to hear from more owners! You have a good point there, that maybe a posibility :thumbup:

Re: CW C1 Moonglow

Always wanted to add a moonphase to my collection. This one fits the bill, but might wait due to current issues with customer service.

I've been following CW for quite some time and hate seeing these horror stories.

Re: Another Elite 1000 (mk3) arrived!

Quick question for the other Elite owners here: What does your manual winding sound and feel like? I have a few watches with the SW200 movement and the Elite feels a little rough to wind - I have a video here. The first 10-15 turns feel a little rough and uneven, then it becomes a little more stead...

Re: Another Elite 1000 (mk3) arrived!

Congrats great pics!

As for the strap I swapped mine out already, but it appears to be sturdy enough for most conditions.

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 Bezel Rocking movement?

I have the Elite 1000 not the same model, but my bezel doesn't do that. Additionally, I haven't heard anyone with the same issue with the MK3's.

Might be a QC issue on yours.

Re: Review of Trident Elite 1000 LE by Fratello

Thanks for the article!

For me although he does mention the hybrid strap being comfortable, for the first 10mins or so it is, but over time it's not.

The TI bracelet will be interesting :thumbup:

Re: C60 Trident Elite 1000 (mk3) - thoughts after a week

Would love to see more pics and commentary on this watch! Where's everybody hiding? I assume a few of these made it into the wild by now? I'm actually waiting on one. Bummer about the strap. Thanks RD When did you order yours? I ordered one about 10 days after release, by which time the initial sto...

Re: C60 Trident Elite 1000 (mk3) - thoughts after a week

One more update. Strap still not great. Better had initially but not great. They just don’t bend the way they should and dig into the sides of the arm. Very well made and sturdy, look great, but just not comfortable. I ordered a standard blue rubber strap from CW to put on this watch but shipping i...

Re: Exchanging Trident MK3

I've had the opposite experience here in the UK. I filled out the repair form online yesterday out of office hours at around 19:00 and I had an email this morning at around 10:30 advising that a prepaid returns envelope is being shipped to me. Ironically, I don't need to ship it as they're just a f...
