Re: Lug-Stitching on Leather Straps - Yay or Nay?

One of my watches, the C1 Morgan 3 Wheeler Chronometer, has that type of stitching with a dark brown leather strap. I think in this particular case, that type of stitching makes for a perfect choice because how it lends a vintage feel to a watch representing as vintage a line of automobiles as to be...

Re: C63 Colchester

^^^^ Surely there is little difference between the C63 Colchester being associated with The Parachute Regiment and the C60 Lympstone being associated with The Royal Marines. They are both 'Walter Mitty' pieces (your description, but not one I will subscribe to) associated with a particular unit/reg...

Re: Same Watch Different Color

I see no problem with owning the same watch model in different colors. If you really like a certain style of watch, why not? Most likely only a watch enthusiast truly understands this, but I find myself picking out a watch of a particular color to go with the color scheme of clothes that I am wearin...

Re: C63 Sealander Collection

Really nice to see the green dialed Sealander on the green canvas strap in a forum picture. It gives me a much better idea of what mine should look like when it arrives. The more that I look at that picture, the better that I like the match between the watch & strap. CW did send me a dispatch no...

Re: C60 Concept

My personal invitation arrived by post today. That has to be at least a couple weeks later than Christopher Ward intended for it to land. I know that the postal service in the U.S. has been saying to expect longer delivery times, this does bring a new definition to snail mail! Delayed delivery times...

Re: Aviation watches

Dive watches seem to be the most popular of the watch ranges & is reflected in how many companies are making variations. But, it is hard to believe that aviation watches occupy a niche with little market potential. After all, the Big Crown line seems to be the mainstay of the Oris brand. Breitli...

Re: C63 Sealander Collection

^^^ Further to that, your email will contain a tracking number for the delivery company. You should also receive a text naming your driver and giving a one hour slot for delivery. That’s certainly what happens in the UK, at any rate. I’ve had packages sent to me by CW but have never had a text nami...

Re: C60 Concept

I have to admit that I was wondering about the criteria for receiving a special preview invitation. In having purchased a half dozen CW watches over the past three years with a Sealander green dialed GMT currently on pre-order, I considered myself a good customer of the brand. This morning, I receiv...

Re: C63 Sealander Collection

Thanks Steve for your input on the Sealander GMT model. It helps to hear from someone that has bought & been wearing a Sealander. And, it has been good to see some real life pictures of the watches besides the company photos. I really am impressed with the looks of the green version on the camel...

Re: C63 Sealander Collection

I plan on buying the C63 Sealander in green while my $125 voucher is still good. But, I am having a really difficult time deciding whether to go with the Automatic or GMT version. I like the looks of both which is making my choice difficult. I lack a GMT in my CW collection but wonder whether the ex...

Re: C63 Sealander Collection

When the C63 Sealander collection debuted last spring, I was hopeful the range would eventually include blue & green dialed models. Never did I dream that watches in both colors would be released within a couple weeks of each other! I might be mistaken but I don't remember CW doing a watch featu...
