Hi All, We have just received the CW C700 in for review and at first glance, and wearing it now for a day its a lovely timepiece very attractive and the few people that have seen it on have commented on it already. Its very shiny and with the sunny weather at the moment catches the eye with its pol...

Re: Care and Feeding of your fine watch?

I saw some really cool stuff for storing watches here I didn't know existed. Thanks. I had to stuff my watch in my pocket one time to keep it safe while throwing around a football at work. I had no safe place to store it.

Re: New Style C3 Malvern bracelet

Nice Pics. I can see your reflection in the links. Very cool! My bracelet is similar in taper and that is the only thing I wish CW would give as an option, a non tapered bracelet. I'd even pay more for it.

I've just started using Tapatalk on my Verizon Stratosphere. Can't give long posts with it. Takes too long. By the way... what is a "GuyPhone"?

Re: Trying not to lose my mind...

About the same here. 8 to 11 days and I've seen 3 shipments without a problem. You're too overly concerned and losing your mind. Think of something else for a week and the time will zip by.

Re: Warning!

While the first few posts can be a bit hard going if you join right in you'll find, as I did, that this is a far friendlier and open forum than some I could mention. 30 comes up in no time and before you know it it's more like 300 ;-) Sent from my GuyPhone using Tapatalk And soon after you'll hit 3k.

Re: Bezel is askew

Hi, Ive just received my new GMT and C8. Theyre my first CW watches and I am very impressed. However, the bezel on the GMT is sitting slightly off the exact 24 position it should rest at. Similarly it therefore wont rest at the 6,12 or 18 position either. I am talking about 2 mil here but its very ...

Re: Omega stole the C60 2012 Red design

I always work on the basis that I am not willing to comprise on quality regardless of cost, if there was a shop I could visit all I wouldn't have bothered with half of them, one was a new that was not QC'd properly or thrown about in the post, and the other I put down to inaccarute sales post or th...

Yes, I don't like it either. Too much color splash, gimpy!

Re: Omega stole the C60 2012 Red design

That doesn't even look like a traditional Omega anymore :( Looks over-designed to me, another case of not knowing when to put the pen down. Dodgy bezel, stubby hands and a too blingy bracelet for my liking. I'm not a big fan of the C60 (someone has to not want one....), but I much prefer the look o...

Re: Omega stole the C60 2012 Red design

Interesting... I think the dial color is closer to what some of us had originally hoped for in the JAG. Also interesting that the Omega version appears to also use a red-tipped second hand, but I can't really tell from this picture. All things considered, I'll take my CWL for being the rarer piece ...

Re: Omega stole the C60 2012 Red design

It's more of a rust red and I like it.
