Lockdown strap mashup.

How bored am I???

I think the Bronze GMT works quite well on the hybrid strap. Not sure about the Elite on a vintage oak but I'll give it few days.

Thoughts?

Sorry - no interesting eBay stories.

Are you going to relist? If so, a link would be appreciated.

Re: Is it just me mourning the demise of 43mm?

I'd love a MK2, sans guilloche, same colourway as the Blue Trident Elite LE. And with the MK3 hands!

Re: Is it just me mourning the demise of 43mm?

Hi Guy, I'm interested to know why you think that. Is there a difference in the visible dial diameters MK2 v MK3? Or rather, is the bezel on a MK3 deeper than a MK2. 44mm I could live with, 45mm is dinner plate territory :-) Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk Nothing scientific about it Ian. Just ...

Re: Is it just me mourning the demise of 43mm?

I also preferred the proportions (appearance) of the MK2 but recognise the uplift in quality on the MK3. A MK3 at 43mm... I wish, but it's not going to happen :-( Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk To my mind to get a C60 Trident Mk3 to wear with the same wrist presence as the 43mm C60 Trident MkI...

Re: Is it just me mourning the demise of 43mm?

I agree that the Mark3 42mm version does appear quite a lot smaller than the previous Mark2 43mm version. However with my wrist size being about 18.5cm in circumference, I much prefer the 42mm size as it feels more comfy and I think it looks better sized for me. I realise that this is very much dow...

Re: Is it just me mourning the demise of 43mm?

I agree that the 42mm do size quite differently. I was surpised how my Mk 3 looks compared to the Mk 2 - definitely smaller. That said, i actually prefer the Mk 3 sizing and proportions Yep, me too! I've got a Junghans Meister at 41.9 which looks bigger than my MK3 CW... and I guess this is down to...

Is it just me mourning the demise of 43mm?

I've got 3 CWs, two 43mm and one 42mm.

I know it's only a tiny difference, but in my head, the 42mm seems so much smaller.

Is it just me?

Re: Christopher Ward Price for a Battery Replacement.

Dropped my girlfriend's W8 IPK in for a battery change at CW in February whilst I was in the UK at the time. Declan kindly changed it for me while I was there. However the next day the watch stopped. I got it dropped back to them and after an inspection found the movement had died. New movement bei...

Re: Christopher Ward Price for a Battery Replacement.

I wouldn't bother sending your watch back for CW for a battery change. It's really easy to do this yourself if you have the right tools. I took my watch round the corner and found a watch guy in our local market - he changed the battery for £5 and it took him 2 minutes! Yep - my guy charges £7 - bu...
