Re: What’s the best thing about the watch you’re wearing right now?

It's a really old Pulsar, the case and bracelet quality is really poor, the chrome plating is coming off. The best thing though is that I can wear it while doing DIY and not having to worry about damaging it. It sucks up all the abuse I throw at it, and just keeps going.

No Fears?

I've just discovered Fears watches by accident. I was looking on Google for images of engraved watches. I remembered seeing a Rolex Sub and wanted to investigate having my Tag Aquaracer bracelet engraved. Then I stumbled over a Fears watch and was surprised to find that they are made in Bristol UK w...

Re: CWL of the day

I've seen stock photos of the C65 Pepsi and found it to be a great looking watch, but on your wrist it looks even better. Enjoy your evening out.

How Does Watch Design Compare To Toothpaste?

I can almost hear forum members when they read the subject title, "what the.....?". Stay with me for just a moment while I explain. Have you ever noticed how adverts for toothpaste go, "our toothpaste cleans your teeth", "our toothpaste cleans your teeth & your gums", "our toothpaste makes your teet...

The value of Provenance

Today at work I was showing a colleague my new CW C60 and he recalled a story about an old Rolex. The story is that a customer of his had found an old Rolex while diving in the Bahamas. With a few shakes, the watch started ticking but was covered in years worth of crud. Interested to know what the w...

Re: Watches that never made it past a prototype

I have to say that the appeal of a genuinely unique watch is very strong. Maybe one day.....

What drives me to collect watches?

To answer my own question, I don't collect watches! I love watches and currently have 10 from a completely worthless Sekonda (in monetry terms, but it was my late father's and is more valuable than anything else I own) to a Tag Calibre 5 Aquaracer. There are collectors of almost anything you can ima...

Re: What would I like CW to Design next?

So many great ideas, and lots of different suggestions. Probably enough to keep the CW design team busy for some time! It must be quite a difficult job deciding on what the next models will be like, whether to go with the current haute horology or design something from inspiration or an emotion. I o...

What would I like CW to Design next?

I like lots of different things for different reasons, but one thing I really love is something that's designed to be bomb proof, so I'd like CW to design a watch that could handle anything you could throw at it. It would have to be manual wind, automatic or solar powered (not battery). An undecorat...

Re: C65 Super Compressor

I totally understand the comment regarding obsessing with WR. I have several "dive" watches, but they've never been deeper than the drawer I keep them in when I'm not wearing them 😁. I didn't buy them to go diving, it's simply that I Iiked them. I admit I know very little about the super compressor ...

Re: A custom movement for the C60 Sapphire?

Since getting my hands on a C60 Sapphire I've noticed how sharp the edges of the engraving is. By sharp I don't mean it would cut, but precise or acurrate. When I run my finger over the double flag on the bracelet, the edges catch the grooves of my fingerprints! I'm guessing that the engraving is la...

Re: A custom movement for the C60 Sapphire?

I now have my C60 Sapphire, and what a cracking watch it is! The view of the movement is indeed subtle and would not be improved by a more decorative one. Looking at the back of the case is like looking into a deep pool of water, it's just fabulous. My wife really loves it as well and is considering...

A custom movement for the C60 Sapphire?

I've just about made my mind up to buy a C60 Sapphire, and if I do, it will be my 3rd CW watch. This has come about due to Covid, "how?" you might ask. Well I've worked for Airbus for 33yrs and now due to major cutbacks in the workforce I'm taking early retirement and treating myself to a retirement...
