Watch servicing

Just seeing what people are doing with regards to servicing their watches. Is it back to CW no matter what the age or once warranty is out do you have a preferred person/company that you use.

Re: Lockdown new year exercise

Managing to get out for runs but weather and lack of daylight doesn't help my enthusiasm! Just glad I'm still at work full time as would be going stir crazy, especially since a lot of jobs around the house were done in 1st lockdown.

Re: Watch Origins - Where did you start?

I have a couple of guess watches that I've had for about 15 years, but had the money to treat myself to something better this year. It happened to coincide with CW advertising the C60 sapphire. I eventually bought the Trident Ombre which really does feel several steps up. Currently at work but can't...

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

What a great read! I am lucky enough to find myself in a position to buy a better quality watch to what I have had and maybe have several decent watches. The one thing reading this post made me think about is my change in taste. Years ago a big and bulky Tag would of been my go to watch but now🤔. Wh...

Re: CW 2020 Forum Watch of the Year

Voted for C60 sapphire, although a great watch, not my favourite but it's the one that got me into CW watches. I can certainly say without the advertising I wouldn't of bought my 1st CW watch the C60 trident Ombre and could it be that it was a case of just getting people that didn't know about CW to...

Re: The Seven year itch

Nice to see a variety in styles, I am constantly explaining to my wife why I like the look of a watch and all I get back is 'I thought you just liked that sort'

Re: Aviation watches category gone

OMG, wish I had found CW earlier. I love my C60 Trident Ombre but the C70 brg definitely got me looking, the C8 as well. I am very much of liking something different, understated but the green of the C70 would of had me parting with my money. Like what has been said though, what a variation of desig...

Steinhart, good or bad experiences

Well Christmas has gone better than I thought and I have a bit of cash to spend on a new acquisition. Been looking into Steinhart and seem to me to have the same philosophy as CW, good quality parts and workmanship but cut out middle man for better price. Has anyone got any of their watches and are ...

Re: Aviation watches category gone

Got admit that although I am fairly new to CW I am finding myself drawn to the older models, the C8 power reserve chronometer tickling my fancy at the moment. The C60 Abyss sh21 is on my wish list but for the stealth look and being a skeleton.
