Re: Should I buy a watch winder ?

I bought a dual winder once I had acquired 4 automatic watches and I find it a very useful bit of kit, especially as my small collection has since expanded, and I like to wear my watches in rotation, often keeping 2 on the go. I also often use my winder to cold start an auto, by popping it in (set t...

Re: Trident C60 Mk2 vs Mk3

Have a 43mm Mk2 Black dial and love the look of the Mk3, has a much fresher look. Those that have made the switch, is there a big visual difference? Ignoring the MK3 improvements that are non-visual, the MK3 has some significant visual differences. In my opinion they represent improvements, but tha...

Re: Clearance Returns

Nice try Guy :lol: Not a mark on the packaging, if it can’t survive a courier then it’s probably not fit for a wrist. Just down to poor QC. Personally, regardless of the cause of hour hand misalignment, I would return for a refund. I would not for one moment though, believe that this watch would ha...

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

I absolutely agree with your further input Horatio. To add my further two pence worth here, my very first mechanical watch was a Turnograph Date Just Rolex, purchased about 12 years ago. After 4 years I had it routinely serviced as recommended at that time by my retailer, and paid the then price of ...

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

Hi Dave I think you’ve made some absolutely brilliant points in your posting above. What you suggested makes so much sense in my opinion. When the day comes that one of my mechanical CW watches needs attention, I will likely ask for a price just to replace the movement and reseal, etc. Thank you for...

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

Hi Nick I take the same approach as Jon suggested and have mechanical watches serviced only when I notice any issues however slight. In the case of CW, if in year 4 the watch is running fine,I personally will be happy to leave it untouched, losing the last year of warranty and keeping the £200. But ...

Re: Any updates for new C60 colorways?

Weight wise, with two links removed from each bracelet, the 42mm size weighs 178g, the 40mm size 164g, so about 8% lighter. On the CW soft black leather strap, the 40mm weighs just 93g.

Re: Any updates for new C60 colorways?

In respect of the bezel actions, I initially bought the all black 40mm immediately upon its launch. So I can compare my three MK3 watches bezel action wise: My black 40mm bezel has most side to side (lateral play), and it has a more “clicky” sound to it when turning. My newer blue 40mm bezel has sli...

Re: Any updates for new C60 colorways?

As a further update, just in case you are undecided: I have attached 3 images to compare sizes on 7.25 inch wrist, my wrist size plus or minus a bit depending upon conditions: 1) is my Mk2 38mm Trident white dial black bezel. 2) is my Mk3 40mm Trident, blue dial and bezel. 3) is my Mk3 42mm Trident,...

Re: The current CW crew.

I rather enjoyed receiving their email Christmas Wishes.
I thought it was rather clever, unusual, and nice to have a communication that put names and faces of their team in one frame.

Merry Christmas to you all :thumbup: :thumbup:

Re: Clearance Returns

@timor54 - is it conceivable that the watch got a jolt whilst in transit to you? There have been various comments on here in the past about GMT watches with hands out of sync. Seems a weak spot with the movement. Guy Sent from my Xperia 5 using Tapatalk Nice try Guy :lol: Not a mark on the packagin...

Re: Any updates for new C60 colorways?

Ohh my..... I gotta make a decision QUICK. I have a 7.1-7.2 inch diameter wrist..... Does the 42mm looks silly or ridiculously large on a wrist that size? The Trident mk3 does not wear large for it's 42mm size, I am sure you will find it fits you well. As others have said, I also think you will be ...

Re: Any updates for new C60 colorways?

Hello all, I've settled on a C60 Trident as my next watch purchase... Except the one I really want, a 40mm with a red bezel still doesn't exist. I know they added the blue dial, blue bezel option on 40mm about 7 months after the C60 v3 launch. Similarly, I was so hoping for a red bezel in the 40mm ...
