Re: Why Keep This Forum Going?

... So why are we still here and why does CW support us. Because we are good for them in the long run and they do read this forum. They like constructive criticism and they like to see what they are doing right. They really do appreciate the feedback. What they do not appreciate is being attacked b...

Re: My C65 Trident GMT isn't waterproof!

Although I somehow find it impossible for CW to have given the above reasons for not replacing the watch and somehow this whole story seems to miss some important narrative between the OP and CW I can definitely relate to the water resistance issue with the C65 and can imagine it happening without a...

Re: FLE #8 - Poll #5

You are all assuming that the 40 would bring in more people and while that might be true, it is also to be expected that switching to a 40 would make several of the people who were backing a 42 version including myself not interested anymore. Furthermore I don't get the point in making any generic s...

Btw does anyone know why the pictures get turned 90° counterclockwise when uploading? Does it have to do with the size?

Re: QC Issues C9 Chronometer - Excellent Resolution by Mike France

Really good news that this got resolved for you Dave and I am hopeful that the QC and CS changes are on the right path and also hope that other customers, that didn't share your initiative to personally email Mike France and had the fortunate chance, for exactly this case to be raised in a high prof...

Re: QC Issues C9 Chronometer

Funny how in the discussion with the owners on the YouTube stream from the get-together the owners when confronted with the quality control question and especially your case Dave, say they didn't know about it and constantly use phrases like "first time we hear about these issues" "very few" and pra...

Re: QC Issues C5 Chronometer

That's a shame it arrived like that. Something like that does take the shine off getting a new watch. But we all know it only takes a rough journey in the delivery process to unearth all sorts of issues. That model is hard to get now especially with a full warranty. If you like it I would return it...

Re: Introducing the C65 Military Range - Dartmouth / Sandhurst / Cranwell

I missed this the first time I looked at the photos, but the little coloured ring on the crown is a really nice touch. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190829/5b303179bf0943f1be8b2ab8d520f1d4.jpg Also thought that it is a really nice touch. My next thought was "hope it doesn't fall off like the H...

Re: Introducing the C65 Military Range - Dartmouth / Sandhurst / Cranwell

It's interesting that they are all listed in their names as "Series 1", implying that there will be further versions of these in the future! They don't seem to be limited editions, but it sounds like they won't be available for a very long time before further series are released. The C10 Aviator ha...

Re: Introducing the C65 Military Range - Dartmouth / Sandhurst / Cranwell

Sure hope they upped the lume game on these ones with the line being called "military range". If it's comparable to the C65 line then it would be really underwhelming for me personally. The missing screw down crown if they have the same as the current C65 would also be an issue but I must say the de...

Re: FLE #8 - Poll #5

This isn't a criticism and I've not read all of the threads connected to this Forum LE, but in my eyes factors that are influencing the current commitment level are: forum numbers/traffic not what it used to be, price of a Trident and then the preference of a GMT at more cost and then the additiona...

Re: FLE #8 - Poll #5

Also agree that the high res pictures make quite a difference and thank you for the effort Scott. Had voted for either #3 or #5 but now with the high res images I am strongly leaning towards #5. The time frame of Jan/Feb would be very suitable for me as well. Awesome opportunity to be part of this!

Re: Final Update (warning long read) - Advice Needed - Small Imperfection on the C65 Trident Auto

Thx for the feedback DavecUK but like the post describes in the end after the other issues with the humidity ingress and the ridiculous shipping I have received a replacement so all good in the end.
