Re: Lug-Stitching on Leather Straps - Yay or Nay?

In most cased Nay, but there could be situations where it would be a yay. It would depend on the watch and my mood.

Re: Racing or Rally Straps for Motorsport Themed Watches?

I've always liked racing type straps, and have not appreciated rally straps. I thought rally straps looked a bit odd with the big holes. However, my placeholder Strapsco rally strap has grown on me. Now I can't picture my green C7 Rapide with a racing strap. After the holidays, I may treat myself to...

Re: Racing or Rally Straps for Motorsport Themed Watches?

Hi Leon, have played extensively with both and prefer either perforated or vintage style rally I.e. numbers of punched holes (proper holes but smaller than those on your rally pics). I'm actually looking for a 24mm perforated at the moment that tapers to 18 or 20 (max) for my Tudor Grantour, wishin...

Racing or Rally Straps for Motorsport Themed Watches?

Do you prefer racing (perforated) or rally (large holes) straps on motorsport themed watches?

Great outcome. Too bad it wasn't taken care of in the first place. I guess this exercise teaches us to keep all of our CW paperwork and to be wary when purchasing a used CW.

Re: New mesh strap for my Seiko Ani-Digi

It look's like you've got a complete package now. Nicely done :) What is the name of the strap company? I'd like to get a mesh bracelet in the 21mm width? Strapcode has one, but with shipping it get's pretty close to the cost of the OEM bracelet. I simply did a search on Amazon for black mesh watch...

Re: Quartz

I'm going to miss the quartz offerings due to their rugged grab and go nature.

Understandably the CW team probably believes it can't move further up the luxury scale by offering watches with common quartz movements. I don't blame them though, they have a business to run.

Re: UPDATE: Should I sell my stuck C60 600 Pro COSC SH21 Red Bezel 1 of 32 - 60/60 Guarantee denied at 5th Year

When a SH21 goes in for service or warranty work does the movement have to be tested again to retain its COSC certification? If so, I can see why the sevice is so expensive.

Re: C60 #Tide dial cracking.

I also put my hand behind me when I walk by the kitchen island. I do the same when walking through the metal framed doorways in my building! I also wear new watches under my sleeve for the first week after receiving them. After a couple weeks my irrational paranoia begins to fade away :shock:

Welcome indigo! Accidents happen and sometimes a lemon can slip through. I usually put on / take off my watches over a padded carpet or my bed because I have dropped my watches too many times. I also put my hand behind me when I walk by the kitchen island. A few of my non-CW watches have fallen vict...
