Re: Exclusive CW Forum Prototype Sale

WOW. I kind of really like this. Too bad I don’t have $2800+ to spare :shock: It doesn’t show up for me anywhere on the prototype sale page or anywhere within CW. Only if I click your link. How did you find it? I found it by searching for 'prototype' in the search box. This C1 showed up and was a p...

Re: US Customs Help

Yeah, remember that there is a flat rate on the movement and a percentage on the bracelet and case. So, if you have an SH21, you can put most of the value on the movement and get away paying about the same as someone with a sw200 since the only big difference in value is the movement.

A black with red stripe would look great with my C65 AM GT LE!
I totally agree. This would look great on my C7 Apex.

Re: Fountain Pens

Cult Pens is the only weekly email I read from start to end. I did take a perverse pleasure in being the only teacher to write with a fountain pen. However, the mechanical pencil is the rabbit hole I have still to emerge from. Which is a clumsy way of mentioning a particularly entertaining book fro...

Re: Exclusive CW Forum Prototype Sale

Rather than comment on the perceived “value” of prototypes compared to released model variants… I’ll just post an example… My prototype C65 Trident Diver in bronze… exactly the same spec, movement, finish, detail and quality as any of the released C65 Trident Divers… but it’s in a bronze case! Is i...

Re: CW 22mm Cordovan

I really like Fluco cordovan straps. They provide the straps for Nomos and they are super affordable in the states: https://holbensfinewatchbands.com/collections/leather/brand_fluco+material_shell-cordovan I've got a Rios Cordovan as well as my CW ones. It cost less, the leather is lovely, but it f...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

Yeah, I'll shoot them an email (might be sold by the time they see it though). I wish it had been 1000m. That would have made the He valve seem a bit more useful. Still, a lovely watch.

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

I suspect this Apex was originally a sale piece that was cancelled: https://www.christopherward.com/int/dive/C60-Apex-Limited-Edition/C60-42APR3-S0BB0-HO.html# They might want to revise the copy that says it is good down to 1000m..... Where's the 1000m? I'm not seeing it. 1,000ft yes, as that is, n...

Re: C60 Elite 1000 LE - Prototype

i really think this is fantastic. The original photo on the website made the color appear like the C65 Trident, but in your video and on your wrist it appears more like the normal Elite.

Re: What would you want the Dress Apex or Aviation Apex to look like?

Dress model. What the description says. Small enough and slim enough to be worn comfortably and discreetly under a cuff (so not a 43 mm can of tuna, please). If you’re going to expose the workings, no garish colours please. Keep it understated. That’s all I ask. Aviation model. Couldn’t give a fig....

What would you want the Dress Apex or Aviation Apex to look like?

I figured I would see what people think the next Apex should look like. From Loupe, we know they are doing four different Apex models to celebrate the SH21. It will be motorsports (C7 Apex), Dive (C60 Apex), Dress, and Aviation. We also know that Armin Strom worked on both models. I was expecting on...

Re: Is CWL de-emphasizing the Super Compressor?

I would guess it is probably the other way around. You start de-emphasizing things that are selling well. Why waste advertising space on things that sell themselves. I would guess the Sapphire was hurt by all the new releases and they want to get the focus back on it.
