Re: Do you like bronze watches?

Apologies for the previous older pics. Recently lost a bit of lume from the hour hand, which prompted me to have it serviced. IMHO don't think it detracts that much from it overall. I did consider having my watchmaker remove the remaining lume from both hands and going with a syringe style but that ...

Re: Has anybody added a cyclops to a CW?

If it works for you and makes the piece more usable, go for it. People "mod up" watches all the time for a lot less meaningful reasons. :thumbup:

Re: Do you like bronze watches?

That works for me, different alloy, nearly the same effect. Pretty sure in this case the strap completes the package. I have seen other examples, online of course, but with the plating chipped and the underlying brass pitted. Not sure how this came to be in this condition as I have only owned it a f...

Re: Do you like bronze watches?

I suppose if I was savey enough to know what solution to apply, it could be discerned what alloy is present by the resulting reaction. Or I could, God forbid, GOOGLE it. :lol: At any rate, thanks for the feedback. Possibly the only one I've seen, with what I believe to be, the original strap. A leat...

FOIS, I think my favorite speedy of them all. But then, that handset is a favorite of mine wherever it is used.

Referencing the article or the acronyms?
Imo the article summed it up well describing a certain masculinity, whereas most moonphase are relegated to dress watches. I just don't know where I would ever wear the thing. :ka:

Nit picking here, but the trapezoidal shape of the window bothers me more than the color of the wheel. Makes it appear cramped.

Re: Rubber strap recommendations for my first CW!

If you are in the US, tho he does ship internationally, I can highly recommend these from

The most comfortable strap you will ever own, and very reasonably priced. I prefer the original series over the minimalist as it seems less fussy to buckel.

Re: CW spin on the Patek tagline

When I first saw it I just hoped it wasn't deliberate. Recommending regular service is a great thing, as long as you are adequately staffed. And for all their accomplishments in mass production, hats off to ETA and Sellita. A bit of a stretch, IMHO, if trying to compare either to a Patek movement.

Re: Do you like bronze watches?

My only bronze watch to date. Although I believe it may have been nickel plated at one time.
