Re: C9 Worldtimer vs C1 Worldtimer vs C1 Worldglow

Just a quick video I shot showing the watch moving under light.

The heated titanium centre disc is a work of art.

Re: C9 Worldtimer vs C1 Worldtimer vs C1 Worldglow

Agree, I prefer my Omega too. But that's in a different price bracket, so not a fair comparison. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51259472047_a1000960ca_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51274391121_fc4b9d9e6d_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51273641557_2620f874f6_c.jpg

Re: Some news from our CEO Mike France about Bel Canto

I think the appeal of the Bel Canto is more in how it looks than the fact it chimes. If CW release a chiming watch with everything hidden behind a dial it would be a completely different watch and be much less desirable. I agree completely, and I am personally buying the Bel Canto more because of i...

Re: Some news from our CEO Mike France about Bel Canto

There is no reason they can't use the sonnerie movement they already have that is all behind the dial, for an unlimited variant at half the price. Much cheaper to produce, no hand finishing, and minimal capacity constraints to make those.

I think that CW should definitely do this in fact.

For me personally, it's my 765LT Owners Edition watch.

.....but only until I get my Bel Canto, as I can't see any CW beating that for some time.

Re: First C1 Bel Canto resold

Very annoying to see, as there are so many who would have loved to buy and wear this watch, rather than a flipper scalping watch enthusiasts.

Re: Why?

I've mostly only seen extremely positive comments. Although as tastes differ, there are understandably those who dislike the watch. I've not seen outright hate or negativity personally. In any case, I think the watch is incredible and a gamechanger for CW. It's on a completely different level from w...

Re: Bel(le) epoch

Agree with the OP, and IMO only two things have really held CW back. First is the "Christopher Ward" branding on the dials historically. Now fixed. Second is the fire sales, and regular discounting. They really need to fix their prices and hold them. No more discount vouchers and only sell...

Re: C1 Bel Canto (Green)

Actually I wonder whether CW is going to make all that much on Bel Canto. It's a lot of R&D for what is now 600 watches, there might be another colour way, who knows as yet, but just the same. I'm expecting around 1,500 units. As it's easy enough to make 3 more colours at least. And they can th...

Re: C1 Bel Canto (Green)

I’d like to raise my old point about legibility, white hands on white dial etc. Please don’t roll your eyes :D You're 100% correct, and I agree. It's the only flaw I can find, yet I also understand why it is this way. The aesthetics of this watch are more important than legibility IMO. I also have ...

Re: C1 Bel Canto (Green)

They were very open about more colours following, so I don't understand the dismay from a few. Perhaps because prices won't now shoot up?
