Re: A Warning About Your Nuts!

We've had a locking wheel nut break on a wheel, that needed to be drilled off the hub, most likely caused by an air gun. Also had on the same car an instance that at slow speeds you could detect a slight metal on metal noise which was only apparent when the windows were down - that'll be the wheel n...

Re: Would you buy a plug in electric car?

Something else that will need to change is human behaviour when crossing roads, car parks, junctions etc You'd be surprised how many people look with their ears when it comes to vehicle awareness. The amount of oblivious pedestrians that walked in front of our moving Nissan Leaf, especially at parki...

Re: Service cost and what is involved in a CW service

I think like most things CW - it's inconsistent and what you receive back depends on which technician has done the work and whether they remember or choose to enclose the paperwork. Happy to be proven wrong, but have read many tales of fixes without any additional info.

Re: Paint has come off He valve, Elite 1000

Presumably the C60 Apex also uses the same valve...
Poor testing if the finish is so fragile on a tool watch, especially as it can be no more 4 months old.

Re: The Bargain Hunters Thread

Bulova 262kHz for £79.99 @ TK Maxx which seems a very fair price - selling for more on ebay. https://www.tkmaxx.com/men/accessories/watches+jewellery/brown-leather-analogue-watch/p/76487024 I think the model is a 96B230 and has now been discontinued, but a bargain if you want a nice reliable quartz ...

Re: Questions - Chat with Co Founders - London GTG / CW Event - 31st August 2019

As CW are now pushing the envelope with design and price - will they commit to holding a sufficient level of parts for the foreseeable future, eg. spare cases, bezels etc that use unique parts on the higher value watches, such as those costing £2500+. So if something breaks or a watch is damaged som...

Re: Questions - Chat with Co Founders - London GTG / CW Event - 31st August 2019

I'm sure they have or had more than 1 White SH21 Trident that was in clearance. Wera offered me one at 50% off in April '17.

Re: Non CW of the Day

First time on the forum, first time on the wrist last night. Got a deal from a UK AD early July but not really had time to wear it. Same movement as my Tudor Bronze I believe and -1 sec so far. It's the 46mm which I believe may be phasing out as they also do 42 & 44. Comes on the mesh bracelet, whic...

Re: Incoming imminent

Is that the root beer GMT? If so I've handled one alongside the then new Pepsi. AD must love you!
