Re: Cosc Performance

My C60 is about +2-3 spd, VSA (ETA 2824-2) is about +8-9 spd, and Orient Mako is about +14 spd. I am in the phase of wearing one watch for a week till all of my watches are worn, so could time these.

Re: Another new watch C11 Extreme

CW are certainly bumping their prices up and up. You're not kidding! I was weighing up a new CW vs. Steinhart recently. There's now a significant price difference between the two. Yet Steinhart has got to be one of CW's obvious competitors. True. I bought my C60 earlier for about $450 in the NN sal...

Re: C5 Malvern Slimline Review

A great review and amazing photographs. The C5 Slimline is one of the three CW's I absolutely love (along with the C60 and the C3 MK II).

Re: C60 Colours

Some more pics of the blue C60 to help you with the color (I have it on a leather strap, IMO a mesh bracelet looks cooler).

Re: CW Support

Jon, I completely agree with you. I also had a less-than-stellar experience with my first CW order. I was very frustrated when it happened, but got over it in a couple of weeks. I still like CW and their service, but since then I have been paying more attention to others.

Re: Switzerland is in trouble, is it?

I am one of the younger members here, and quite excited about new technologies. I am also planning on getting my first iphone in the iphone 6 so I will be intently listening to the keynote next Tuesday. I also do not have any digital watches in my small collection, as I never liked the look of the G...

I got the same payment receipt email too.

Re: Grab and Go Omega

I might not get around to swapping to my 'nice' watches straight away and then I've entered the 20:00 to 03:00 period where I can't adjust my automatics so my Bluebird is getting some good wrist time ;) I believe that is only for setting the date, not the time. Change the time to 9 AM, then change ...
