Re: C60 vs C65

I'm new here, be gentle with me :) I've arrived at Christopher Ward looking for a "rotating bezel" watch and it seems CW has some good ones. Mine is a small barely-a-collection of a fairly modest kind and they each have a reason for being, quite apart from just liking them and putting a smile on my...

Re: C60 Trident Bronze Pro 600 / patina

It is amazing how much the bronze can change! Well done for your efforts. It would be interesting to see how well it could clean back up to the original state. A great contrast to the usual relationship many have with their watches fearing getting a ding and a scratch to ruin a perfect timepiece. If...

or is it 4yrs warranty?
It's 5 years.......
5 years 'conditional' warranty (on the movement only)...
4 years 'un-conditional' warranty (on the movement only)... :lol:
Either way, not bad.

Re: Watch "My Watch (London Watch Collector) Collection" on YouTube

Well I watched it, but not sure why! :shock: Like watching paint dry! :lol: At the outset he banged on about an interest in horology, but displayed a collection acquired in the past few years of the “usual suspects”. Nothing of real horological interest. A collection for the Instagram generation. :...

Re: Jan sale

I'm sure many will end up on eBay, largely because the sale preview is not a level playing field. Many people who should get email notification/heads up, do not and I include myself in that. I don't know the reason, but I was under the impression that as a previous customer, an email would be sent ...

Re: Jan sale

Some items do appear, disappear and then pop up with other sellers quite randomly on ebay. I sold my old C60 300 on there last year as I didn't wear it anymore and it was bought almost immediately and then re-listed by 2 different sellers within a month. I'm sure we'll see plenty post sale...if ther...

Re: Jan sale

There was a C60 Titanium 600 V1 on there briefly with 60% off at £385!! Had it in the basket but then it was gone. Hope that the bigger discount items go to those who will keep them rather than selling them on for a profit...A little while ago shortly after a sale I did ask an ebay seller if they h...

Re: Jan sale

60% off the Titanium? That's well worth it. I might have been tempted myself had I not just got the Abyss. Was it bracelet or strap? It was on a black strap, which eases the disappointment! Still crazy value though. There were a couple of quartz models that had 50% off but the rest were the standar...

Re: Service cost and what is involved in a CW service

Although £150 might seem like a bit of a bargain for the amount of work involved in a full strip, clean, inspect and rebuild, servicing of these movements generally only makes financial sense if you do it yourself. NB: Punters price for a SW200-1 is around £150, much less for a manufacturer or watc...

Re: C60 Apex review (my 1,000 post)

Quality and balanced review. It does look excellent on bracelet. I guess you have already tried to find a solution to the squeaking bracelet but I had a similar experience with my MK3 Trident. Plenty of liquid soap worked into the bracelet and then rinsed well, fixed it immediately and I haven't hea...

Re: Music Streaming Services

Having tried Deezer, Spotify and Apple Music, I'd rank them in that order. As others have said once you go for a premium streaming service it almost wholly replaces the need to go to the time an effort in buying and ripping your own music so would highly recommend to anyone. Whilst I preferred Deeze...

Re: I bought a Rolex above rrp

Simple and beautiful!
If you find a watch that you love, can afford and will keep for the future, rrp means nothing.
