Re: FLE #8 design submissions

I hate...Ok, strongly dislike the current renditions of both the C60 MkIii and the Dartmouth. The C60 translucent dial is just awful. There is nothing attractive about a wholly exposed date disk on a timepiece and the flags on flags motif stretched across the dial are better suited to an opaque show...

“CW Research Event”

Did this event happen? Received an email awhile back that was discussed here but being from the states, I didn’t respond. It was supposed to be held in late September at 2nd Floor, 3 Finsbury Avenue, London. Curious if it occurred and if so, did any forum members attended?

Re: Bentley Flying Spur

The cost of buying the Bentley may be only the cost of a dozen or so decent CW’s, however; the cost of OWNING the car may be more like buying a dozen or so Tudor’s. Signed, former Porsche 911 owner.😉🤣

Re: Crackle When Screwing Down Crown

When I screw the crown down, I hear a little "crackling" when I turn the crown and it closes. Do you also “feel” the “crackle”? If so, I suspect it is actually just a slight mis-match of the thread pitch of the crown and case or perhaps some burring in the threads from sub-optimum finishing. I have...

Re: FLE #8 - major changes

I personally don’t have a problem with an aluminum bezel although, I would assume that the aluminum option would impact the ability to apply lume to the numerals as currently on the ceramic gmt’s? This may have a larger impact on my decision.

Re: Barton Elite Silicon

The Barton’s are a good quality silicon strap at a nice price. I do wish that the contrasting color on the bottom of their straps would wrap up to the edging as it almost imperceptible when viewing the stap on the wrist straight on.
