Re: Britt Pearce/Watch Gringa Opens Up

Brittany entertains me. I watch YouTube to learn or be entertained. IMO she's refreshing and wonderfully unpretentious.

Re: Dent in Trident pro bezel fix?

Sorry to hear (and clearly see) what has happened. Agree with ajax87's comments above.

I'll add that I also seem to hit the sides of doorways and door knobs....just odd as there is plenty of room to go through!

I was aware of the £100 discount and Welcome vouchers which I planned to use to lessen the amount needed to purchase. Having found out that these discounts are no longer available (and having tried both Loupe and We...

Re: I want to like it, but….

Often I respect the technology and the design work, however visually it does not captive me enough to motivate a purchase.

Re: Forum independance?

We have this debate after every preview,. We do and I really don’t see what is so hard. CW grant previews and early accesses to a forum of valuable enthusiasts.

Re: Updated 2023 CW C60 Trident Pro 600 models
