Re: Introducing Seiko Presage Prestige Line Enamel Dial, now with Spring Drive

I saw this and had the same reaction. Seiko are blurring the lines between their Prospex/Presage/GS lines. You used to have a fairly good idea what the price ranges were likely to be for any given model in one of those ranges; but no longer. They’re pushing all their prices up whilst putting their p...

Re: Can the forum format be changed?

This could be contentious... I’d agree that the forum can sometimes feel like a dark and cold place. There are periods, and occasionally topics, that provoke a lot of dialog, but in general it can feel like not a lot is happening. Personally, whilst I have Facebook account I choose not to use it as ...

Re: Do you like bronze watches?

^^ my understanding, and please correct me if I’m wrong, is that Tudor use an aluminium bronze alloy (CuAl*) as opposed to phosphor bronze alloy (CuSn*) which is the more common alloy used by most watch manufacturers including CW. Aluminium bronze tarnishes less and does not develop the green verdig...

Re: FLE #8 - Poll #5

Looks like it may depend on the 11 that voted for #4 if we have another vote between 3 & 5. The 11 who voted for #4 will have also voted for #3 and/or #5 in this poll if they were willing to buy them, or not voted for #3 and #5 if they were not willing to buy them. No switching of votes is required...

The bronze C65 looks rather attractive.

Re: C60 Apex Limited Edition

Height of approx 16.5mm with a lug-to-lug of 54mm. A beast (monster) of a watch.

Maybe price is a factor of the watch mass?

Re: The 40 mm C60 four months on?

‘If’ CW roll out further colours, complications and materials in 40mm then I can see the range becoming over large. Would you really need the whole gamut of models in 38/40/42mm? And for CW that means increased capital costs associated with stock control and further support workload. Now that is an...

Re: How many CW watches do you own

Bought 3, currently own 0. I came to CW initially to fill a GMT gap in my collection; below my Omega, above Seiko and sort of alongside Hamilton. Subsequently, I’ve embarked upon an affair with Tudor and to a lesser extent Oris. As a consequence I’ve been selling off other watches this year and that...

Re: The 40 mm C60 four months on?

No personal experience, but it would appear to be near a sweet spot for size. The dimensions suggest that its width/height balance is possibly less top heavy than the 38mm? and the dial layout has more symmetry, again in comparison to the 38mm, with a 3 baton rather than an indented date window. ‘If...

Re: Non CW of the Day

Thank you all. My first impression is that photographs cannot do this watch justice. Its quality, in particular the dial and hands, is sublime. In that parallel universe where common sense rules I could see this together with my North Flag making a pretty damn fine two watch collection. Ah yes the ...
