Re: Ocean Crawler Lume Rush Watch - Review

Re: Next CW sale?

So I check my emails and the USA and UK websites and see no notification of the sale (preview) that was supposed to start today. Lo and behold I see a thread that has grown to multiple pages complaining about invalid links, misinformation, wrong photos etc and a slow website. . I'm pretty sure the ...

Re: Next CW sale?

Re: Polishing question

I use the grey and burgundy pads from Cousins, and they work well. Couple of tips- - If you wet the pad and metal material and keep it wet, you'll produce a finer satin finish more in line with the original. - It's all about the direction of the brush- even minor arcs from rubbing by pivoting from t...

Re: Degaussing/demagnetising my Trident hasn't worked!

I think the technique might be a little wrong here. The cheap demagnetisers are only large coils on a former which are energised when the swich is closed. The unterminated laminated formers face upwards to the face of the machine meaning the magnetic field is strongest from the upper face of the box...

Re: Non CW of the Day

Not mine, my eldest's choice for his 18th birthday last week. We discussed mechanical vs quartz and further solar vs battery and arrived at this. Lovely detailing on the face. He has a good eye, but costly!

Re: Massdrop for the UK?

Ditto. I've naively ordered low-value items and been stung for duty & fees where the fixed fee is a considerable constituent of the overall cost. Some things can be worthwhile- especially those that are hard to source, but always expecting importing duties. I've not yet come across a UK equivalent.
