Re: FLE #8 Design Vote #2

A shame it hasn't gone ahead as there were a lot of great designs submitted. Can see why people have held off with the wave of new designs been released by CW towers. If the cack handed logo would have been moved to a proper place it may have gotten closer or over the line. Sent from my TA-1012 usin...

Re: Strap Colour Question.

If you are looking for a dark grey I would have a look at a Barton canvas. Not tried the Canvas but if they are anything like the quality of the elite silicon, you shouldn't be disappointed. I know you said you weren't a fan of NATO's but the Haveston Redstone would set the red off nicely https://up...

If you like the Lejour chronometer have it with a white dial. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191031/502d1de053e0dadb44aaf5eaf36ccfe3.jpg Or slightly too small at 40mm and a few numbers. mondia grande montre https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191031/d91d2ec5b517b24f98b848050e0ce7b6.jpg Sent from ...

Re: C65 Trident Vintage MK2 or Tudor Black Bay 36mm

Thought I should probably update / end this thread. As planned, I tried on the BB36. Lovely build quality but it just didn't do anything for me - nor did the 41. I did, however, see this rather nice B&R 123 Vintage which I ended up buying. IMG_20191007_122204.jpg But...on reflection, I decided it w...

C2 & C20 Lido Straps

CW towers have a few of the Black Oak leather straps Available.
They are not listed on the website but can be ordered through Customer Service if you give them a ring.

Re: C65 Trident Vintage MK2 or Tudor Black Bay 36mm

Those are two very different watches; different aesthetics, different prices, different manufacturers.... PS - recent phone conversations with CW Towers have confirmed that all the new “Light Catcher” C65 cases are made in the same factory as Tudor cases... I Agree they are two very different watch...

Re: C65 Trident Vintage MK2 or Tudor Black Bay 36mm

@Alex r: that is a beauty of a watch and very likely my next purchase (despite already owning the BB red). One thing I couldn't make out in any reviews tho, maybe you can help: does it have antireflective coating? Some suggest it has, some say it doesn't. The crystal seems to reflect light a lot bu...

Re: C65 Trident Vintage MK2 or Tudor Black Bay 36mm

Not seen or handled any of the new CW's so can't comment on quality value etc. The Blackbay 36 would be probably beat the SMP to be my one watch. The finishing I think is above the SMP. The bracelet could do with a half link but that is a minor issue. The hands you either love or hate but the polish...

There's not much you can do about being told that you have been banned for life, apart from creating a new User name.

That might work.
