Re: More quartz watches to come?

I haven't been able to discern any difference in design or component quality between the quartz C63 Valour & the other CW mechanical watches in my collection. The sapphire crystal, the 'Lightcatcher' case & applied numbers & logo are all of the same quality as the automatic models. The o...

Re: More quartz watches to come?

Aside from the cap imposed by the MOD, my intuition tells me that a quartz model makes the most sense for a chronograph. As a general rule, mechanical chronographs cost more. Christopher Ward has done a few in recent years but they have tended to cost more than their other product lines. I am only g...

Re: Jade Dragon

Would it be possible for you to post a picture of what the Jade Dragon LE looks like? I know that it quickly sold out but it still would be interesting to see such a winning design!

Re: Jade Dragon

Thanks guys for sharing the link & renders! Personally, I do like to have indices or numbers, but understand why the minimalist design appeals to some. The interesting exhibition case back design caught my eye though! Delmar That's what the VULCAN XII is for though :thumbup: https://thedriversu...

C63 Valour on black Vintage Oak Italian Leather Strap
Ferg, I decided to try out your suggestion of putting my new C63 Valour on a vintage black leather strap. What do you think?

A Closer Look at the C63 Valour!

Ferg, I couldn’t help but notice how the numerals of your C9 chronograph “Big Blue” have the same reflective quality as my C63 Valour! Yours is a gorgeous watch, my friend!

Re: C63 Valour Arrives Early!!!

IMG_2128.jpeg I will add one more observation on my new acquisition. As my wife just told me, the pictures don’t do the watch justice. Maybe an extreme close up would illustrate how the numerals & logo are raised which provides interesting dimensional depth. Add the reverse Panda sub dials &...

It’s the Black Pueblo Rally leather strap. Mine is with the deployant. I had another strap from CW from which I took the clasp.

Re: C63 Valour Arrives Early!!!

Been wearing mine for the last two days. I think it very nice to look at. The dial is nicely proportioned with well thought out layout and text-size choices. I think the numeric applied indices are a strong point. I put mine on a third party leather strap since the stock strap is too long and I did...

Congratulations, Delmar. :thumbup: It looks as though the Maui Jims are ready to lead it astray on the next trip. 8) Probably should have included the disclaimer, “Maui Jim’s not included with this purchase.” Although I will say that this watch & the Maui Jim’s will look sharp worn at the same ...
