Re: Christopher Ward C65 Super Compressor Review

I just posted all of my strap options here: https://www.christopherwardforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=54844&p=834233#p834233 I really like the bracelet too. I think a nice tan NATO looks great with the blue. This one from Worn & Wound has orange stitching witch plays nicely off of the second hand. 20...

Re: Accuracy checking systems

I like to track the accuracy of a new watch over a month or so just to see what is doing. I use Watch Tracker (iOS). What I like about it is that you don't have to be exact with what time you check. I just check the time when I think of it. I takes care of all of the math for you. Other than that, I...

Take a look at a Tudor Pelagos... A fine diver spoiled by the Old Testament in the bottom half of the dial.

Re: CWL of the day

Had a milestone birthday over the weekend. My wife surprised me with a new watch that hasn't left my wrist since. I could not be happier with the Super Compressor. It is a really fun watch. I love the 60s/70s ascetic. 20201124_184137393_iOS (2).jpg 20201124_184755013_iOS (2).jpg 20201124_184555761_i...

Re: C60 Sapphire Strap Choice

A Navy Blue ADPT from Worn and Wound would look pretty smart on the Sapphire I think.

Can somebody tell me if the new CW Tropics taper from 22mm down to 20mm?
Yep, the tropic is 20mm at the buckle. Just put the caliper on it.

Re: Forum Dialogue: My watch experience and learnings so far....

I went in the opposite direction. My most expensive watch was the first one I bought (almost 30 years ago). :lol: Curious if I may; Did you plan the expensive watch purchase that way or simply bought a brilliant watch and it's still with you today? What drives new purchases in 2020 for you? Definit...
