Re: Why Keep This Forum Going?

I think it is hugely in CW’s favour that there has never been any official intervention or contribution to the forum. To do so would be the first step on a very slippery slope. I am sure there have been occasions when temptation to interact, retort or just explain has been strong. What they do get i...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Thanks.
It is very strange looking at the same watch in each mock up, knowing there are colour differences but not being able to see them.

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Just a largely irrelevant comment as this FLE is not for me: as someone who is very colour blind all of the Dartmouths on this page look identical.(!).

Ah! On the previous page now.

Re: Why Keep This Forum Going?

I suspect jtc is right. I joined over ten years ago, a time when internet forums were more popular perhaps. I joined, knowing next to nothing about watches, simply being fed up with cheap quartz pieces that looked tatty and worn after six months. Slowly, I have learned a little and have bought quite...

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

It’s ok banging on about charging infrastructure on journeys, but I want to know what they are going to do for people who have no driveways and park on the road? Is there gonna be a charging point every 5 yards on each pavement? Sorry, full plug in electric will never work. Not in my lifetime anywa...

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

Not sure it is a proper FLE. Seems we are offered little or no input. After the previous two FLEs I can understand why. Will a substantial deposit up front be a requirement?
Anyway, not for me.

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

I believe cars have a bleak future, however they are fuelled. I don’t think us as individuals will have a choice.

Re: What happened to CW?

worth remembering the staff who must turn up every day and face a potential barrage of angry customers. Why should that be, as it’s the staff who are the problem!! A rather harsh and perhaps ignorant comment. Remember: all you need is love. (and a much improved service and repair set up staffed by ...

Re: Bad experience with Christopher ward watch and it's customer services

Some thoughts: I do remember CW first offering a watch service. I think it was £99 for an automatic. They serviced my C5 Aviator. The job got done but seemed a little uncoordinated. Different people in the organisation had no idea if anyone else had raised a job number/ seen the watch/ any knowledge...

Congratulations on your new Seamaster. Did you buy a Ref 212 (no waves) or a Ref 210 (new one with waves)? They're both lovely but I'm curious to know which one you thought worked best on a tan leather strap.
Neither.

Re: Omega Moonwatch help please.

Not the watch. A little flesh on the photo bones. Ironically I enjoy taking photos. I have a half decent camera. I upload onto my laptop using Olympus software. I use my ipad for internet use including this forum. As previously admitted, I do not have a smart or dumb phone. I anticipated someone pos...

Re: Omega Moonwatch help please.

Time for an update. One that may well surprise. I was persuaded by the argument for bracelet over strap for around two weeks. I got to an AD to try a watch on. The heselite version on a bracelet. Liked the watch, left pretty cold by the bracelet. I have (as always for the past ten years) read very m...
