Re: New watch from Baltic

I like the blue version. While I wouldn't buy it, I think the tan version is quite interesting.

Re: C60 Trident Pro: Blue Or Black?

IMHO, If you're going to wear a bold sports watch, wear it with the bolder color. I voted for blue.

Re: CW watches getting smaller and smaller

My watches over 43mm have been unworn for a couple years. My Tissot Seastar and PRS516 at 43 and 42mm, respectively are the largest watches I have worn recently. I haven't worn either since mid-summer. My Marloe Haskell (40mm) and C65 Trident GMT (41mm) have been worn the most over the last couple m...

Re: Farer does Big Eye

I'm often drawn to dials with an asphalt texture dial. Accordingly, I think the dial of the Chalcot is wonderfully executed.

That's too bad, Cribbage is an ideal game to play over an ale or two.

Re: Any Cribbage players out there ?

Your hand had no combinations of 15 without help, so I also would have put the 4 and the 6 in the crib. Even though your opponent a 28, your hand ended up being very respectable. I'm rusty, but I see 15 two, 15 four, 15 six, and a triple run of 3 (for fifteen) makes twenty-one.

Re: Seven Years of “Loupe”: your thoughts, please?

I receive a hard copy, but I seldom read it. I'd like to see more emphasis on watch related content and fewer human interest stories. I already follow a number of topics, so CW probably won't hit upon my other interests.

I would prefer to receive a glossy catalog once or twice a year.

With no patina, I prefer the look of the Aquitaine. However, once the patina develops, the brown of the 300 might go better than the blue of the Aquitaine.

Re: GMT potential unpopular opinion

While I still find the Tribus to be a stunning watch, I find my C65 Trident GMT to be easier to read.

Re: Snow Leopard Delivery

Rooster, I understand yout frustration and that is a big chunk of change to be unable to use. You obviously know quite a bit about the CW brand, so stick around the forum and share your thoughts.

Re: C60 Trident 300 Quartz?

Good luck Michael. That is a really nice looking watch. Please post a picture if your offer is accepted. I have the 300 Chrono Quartz and always liked the 3 hand version as well.
