Re: Incoming!

My only real gripe is the rubber strap. It's fine, but something about the texture is slightly off-putting. I'm not sure if this is really justified, but I wouldn't be surprised if the strap starts showing its age relatively quickly, particularly the keepers. Some rubber straps (like the one on my ...

Re: Logo only on some existing CW models.

A member of the CWE Group, posted a couple of days ago that he'd heard from CW his new C65 Super Compressor, which was in the process of being shipped to him, has got the TwinFlag (Swish) logo.

Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

Imo swish is good one. There are ton of prestige brands that are recogniseable wo any written text. Sure, it’s mainly automotive but still. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk There can be few with more brand awareness than Apple. If CW achieve that sort of recognition!?!? Des This watch hasn’t got ...

Re: Logo only on some existing CW models.

This is an interesting topic. I joined this forum last year and read where people preferred the old logo rather than the new text. So much so they would mention they have not purchased a new CW because of the branding. I always thought how wrong they were. I really like the text. I like it at the ni...

Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

A lot of the discussion around ‘Christopher Ward’ text on the dial or no revolves around what we individually like, and pitting that against what someone else likes, and presuming a solution for Christopher Ward the company. We then feel entitled to add ‘I don’t know why they didn’t do it my way’.....

I still think at 16.5mm, it will look too small for a man’s wrist.

Happy to be proved wrong tho!

It’s interesting that all pics are from the front.
Prob cos MF doesnt want you thinking its a CW and not an MF :lol:
Exactly!

Okay, I seem be flip flopping more than a politician. Check out this review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TyLzkFcHdmU This is growing on me. I would still prefer the name at the 12 as it still looks bare, it just needs something. The color on this is awesome. This is the beet review so far. I re...

Re: Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

I think going with the twin flags “swish” is a forward move for the brand. Trademarks and logos are not innovative but they are signposts to established brands on the road to broader recognition. Nike’s Swoosh, Ford’s blue oval, or Bass Ale’s red triangle are indicators of the firm, the do not repl...

Re: Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

The bracelet is very interesting. Screws I could take or leave. A taper to 16 mm is nice. Cuts 10 g from the weight. They mentioned that it also has a longer micro adjust and they are going to continue with incorporating the 'half' links. All good improvements. They also said the new ones will back...

Yeah, I am the same.

Re: Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

What a great look. I love the bezel, markers, hands, layout. The cream dial green bezel is a really nice color way. I do prefer just the logo at 12 over the just word mark at 12. However I still think the words Christopher Ward should be written under the logo. Seems too bare without it. It can be ...
