Re: The New C70 Chronometers

I had a D-Type Chrono for a while. When the catalogue came through with it on the front I saw it and I just had to have it. I loved the design. But when it arrived I just didn't take to it. I don't know why, but it all looked a little busy when on the wrist. have to agree with this precisely - saw ...

Re: Welcoming new members

Hi Glynn, I don't do the welcome bit, not because I am antisocial but due to the fact I am a relative newcomer myself and I think the welcomes carry more weight from our more seasoned members! What I have found over the last eight months is that the vast majority on here are tolerant and accommodati...

Re: At what price point does a watch become 'luxury'?

Having reached an age where I almost certainly have less in front than behind I enjoy embracing 'luxuries' as necessities and will continue to do so ( including expensive watches ) until I run out of money or drop off my perch, whichever comes first :lol: :lol: An excellent sentiment that I fully a...

Re: At what price point does a watch become 'luxury'?

Impossible to answer: If life has 'gone to plan' (i.e. if you have become steadily wealthier as the years go by) you experience the ratchet effect which influences your perception of what you 'need'. In my twenties when cash was short: - I aspired to a bigger, newer Ford or Vauxhall (but not new!), ...

Re: Two New Sale Arrivals....Now With Some Pictures

You're right, but as my watch collection grows it gets harder to justify yet more purchases unless I really want them, even if they are half price. Fair point - up until last year I was a 'one (cheap!) watch at a time' person. Then I got my Speedmaster II and things took off from there and I have b...

Re: Two New Sale Arrivals....Now With Some Pictures

I like the C70 a lot but I'm never entirely sure it would suit me. I can relate to this: I have used the various CW sales opportunities to break out from my usual tastes for big / heavy divers and Chronographs to try some more delicate / unconventional designs ( C20 Lido first and now the C70 VW an...

Re: EBAY!!

Why not, I am pretty sure you wont need your life story to sell it. or may be you will keep it. But is it better to sell on the CW forum, at least you are selling to people who want it for what it is, also if your buying hopefully your buying from some one who has looked after the watch. To me & it...
