Re: 15% off all C65 Tridents

Yep. Glows gently on both my C65 Diver Auto and GMT all night. They seem to give each model a decent depth of lume so you get really bright for the first hour or so and then gradually dims. However I can still easily read both these dials in a dark room after eight hours or so.

Re: January Sale 2019

I’m now finding myself checking this section of the CW site several times a day just in case something catches my eye.
Still looking for a C1 Morgan 3-Wheeler

Re: C60 Trident Pro 600 movement reliability

My C60 Trident Pro (Vintage) has performed perfectly since the day I bought it. This particular one is not the first one I have owned and all previous models have also performed impeccably. If I recall, my first one had the ETA2824-2 movement - I bought it pre-owned and my local watch maker opened t...

Today it is in a deep, chocolate brown CW vintage leather strap. Matches the shirt/jumper well, thank goodness for quick release spring bars..

Re: Something wrong with my C65 Trident Automatic

I’ve had my own C65 Diver Auto on my wrist for eight days out of the last twelve since I bought it. I’ve also been doing my own time checks (as I do with all my new watches!) although for daily losses/gains I tend to use my work PC clock. This is what I’ve got so far: Day 1: Gain of 1sec Day 2: loss...

Re: Customer Service for Repair - Positive Experience

Hats off to both you and CW!
As you say, many of the population area all too fast to complain and few take the time to acknowledge good service when they get it.
All my dealings with CW have been positive, glad to hear you got the same treatment.

PS, nice watch too

Re: Trident C65 GMT broken

I’ve sent a couple of CW watches back for either a fix of a problem, or a general service, and both have been returned to me in perfect condition and always before the stated 4-5 week timescale. Whenever I have called to check on progress their representatives have been informative and exceptionally...

Re: New C60 Trident Acan COSC LE (250 Pieces)

Looks beautiful, some great pictures there!
The black / deep blue colour scheem is fantastic, especially with the pop of orange on the second hand and hour markers.
If these (or the new Trident with this colour scheme?) ever come out in 38/40mm sizes I’d be there in a heartbeat...

Same C65 Diver Auto as it has been for the last few days; different strap. Today I have a handmade dark brown, vintage look leather strap on the watch. Lovely and flexible, needs no breaking in at all!

Re: Customer service

That sort of delay does found odd, particularly from my experience.
Try phoning them. I have always found them the be exceptionally helpful whenever I speak to them.

Re: Manchester GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 27th April 2019

Coming from Suffolk it will be up north via A1 or M1 then M62 west, M60 and into manchester via the M602 at J12 of the M60. Iain Just realised if you look on a map, this route seems a bit daft as it appears to take you round manchester and looks a long route. Don’t be tempted to come off earlier th...
