Re: Should CW go 'all in' on The Twelve?

.... I like it, I want one .... 40mm is a BIT too large for what is, mainly, a dress watch.... The Twelve is a fantastic watch. I bought one on the January sale and it is first choice now. It goes with just about everything. It is definitely a bit more dressy than a diver but I would not call it a ...

Re: C65 Dune

That looks nice! Very "field-watchy." I thought I would fancy that with the sand dial but I played around with it on the CW website and probably would have it with a black dial also. It looks great on the "Bader" bracelet too. Without having seen it in person I probably would not...

Re: Why newer CW gmts are nolonger cosc rated, really wish c65 aquatines can be cosc level

My non-COSC CWs all run excellently. You have to pay extra for COSC rated movements. My guess is that CW did not want to charge the customers more.

Re: When the minute hand is at the top of the hour...

On the blown up picture it is obvious.
On the wrist I would not notice it.
I would not open the watch for this myself as to not disturb the water resistance for something like this.
But I understand that once you have seen it you can't unsee it.
Still I would just live with it.

I appreciate whoever keeps eliminating the temptation for me.
Wardhoard has one if you suffer with FOMO ....

(I don't want to tempt you but it is a fab watch, my favourite CW and, perhaps oddly but still, my favourite watch period.)

Re: Am I overdoing it? Will I get banned by CW?

So I found out about CW ... Ordered 3 watches in colours and sizes, realised they all don't fit me perfectly, I need a 38mm and they only had 36mm and 40mm. Returned all. Visited CW showroom. Bought a 38mm Trident Pro 300m which was beautiful. Only fault, didn't have a GMT hand ...... Purchased C65...
