Re: Thinking about the Trident C61...

I have a C60 gaining just about 2-3 seconds a day, so excellent timekeeping. I would definitely rate the C60 to be comparable to something like a Tag Aquaracer for much lesser price.

Re: New iWatch Thoughts

I like how it looks but they did not discuss too many details (water resistance for example?). Will have to wait till next year to go to an Apple store and see one, and reserve my judgement until then. I am picking up the black iphone 6 for sure. Its  Watch, not iWatch, right ?

Re: COSC

I have come to liking my watches running faster, since it helps me reach a bit early. The faster they go the happier I am. And all of my autos run fast, from +2spd for C60 to +15spd for Orient and I like them all. However, as Fnew says if I were buying on a special occasion or spending big money, I ...

Re: Non CW of the Day

i have to vote "no" on both of those. not quite right. I know Greg, I intend to use them for my other watches (bond for incoming Steinhart, might try it on blue C60 but don't think it will go well), still need to decide what goes on what. But the Mako was the only one on NATO, so real easy to slip ...

Re: New seiko mm300 with gold accents

i must be the only person in the world who just hates power reserves on watch faces. if someone wanted to put one on the back or something, just in case i really needed to see it, ok. but they always look so disjointed and out of context to me. hell, they even chopped off the tiniest sliver of the ...

Re: My latest addition

Always love this watch (the old version), I personally like the blue more. If I had not got a blue C60 I would have this for sure. The caseback is probably among the best.

Re: Another new watch C11 Extreme

They should have brought this back with an updated version instead Agreed. Mine is one of my absolute favourites - a keeper for sure. I guess they didn't sell????? I wouldn't have bought that one just because the hour and minute hands are pretty ugly, and don't go with the second hand, but thats ju...

Re: Introducing my GMT Master

Congratulations downer, a true classic! I have never even seen a Rolex in real life, but if I can afford one in the future, it would be a GMT Master II for sure. However, I prefer the BLNR version.

Watching wrote:Please could the Moderator move the last fees posts into a new thread? (This discussion has turned from the C11 to CW pricing as a whole.)
That would be appreciated.

Re: Another new watch C11 Extreme

You could use the same argument and say that for a diver an Orient Mako or a Seiko SKX007 is cheaper than both so why buy a Steinhart/CWl/Omega/Rolex when you can get perfectly good automatics for under £100. Because all the watches above use the same movement ETA 2824-2 for divers, Valjoux 7750 fo...
