Re: Omega X-33 Skywalker

Well thank you. I would expect it to be extremely accurate indeed.

It’s the 44mm version. They make a 48 as well which is too big for me too!

Non CW of the Day

Not surprisingly the newbie again today 948C08AF-03D6-4BAD-A92B-49EA28D7659B.jpeg stefs- I love that watch. Makes me envious. I owned it for all of 1 day, bought it while on holidays in May this year as I was promised it was all Titanium, but the screws and the crown are steel. Got a rash after wea...

Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

I still think the red on the seconds had should extend past the pip towards the center exactly as far as the red extends on the GMT hand. So that when the two hands cross, the “end of red lines” line up...

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

I like having the original movement in a watch. That’s purely subjective of course, but then isn’t a subjective view of what you like about a watch what our hobby is all about? I wouldn’t do it for all my watches but for the ones I like I would much rather keep it as original as I can, rather than l...

C60 Apex Limited Edition Preview | Launches 28th August

Not at all - I suppose I’m part of the way there in that I will now happily use, mark and ding watches that cost 6,7 or 8 hundred pounds. Only two or so years ago, buying a watch that was a couple of hundred quid watch was a single major purchase that needed to be ‘babied’. Not quite there with wat...

Re: Omega X-33 Skywalker

Thank you, I saw the 24 months indication on the website, but I was wondering if any owners can confirm is that’s accurate. But you’re right of course, it really is a silly question and will depend on use...

Re: C60 Apex Limited Edition Preview | Launches 28th August

Looked at the picture in more detail. It really is a beautiful watch. I don’t think the pictures on the preview website do it justice, they are a little blurry and badly cut - my guess is that’s on purpose and full pictures will be available on the 28th. Quite disappointed it doesn’t have a titanium...

Re: C60 Apex Limited Edition Preview | Launches 28th August

Is it a titanium case? I guess it is, probably the same as the recent Elite, but doesn’t seem to confirm that anywhere...

Also surprised by the 300m WR in combination with a He valve... that’s usually reserved for higher WR model?

It really is a nice watch...

Re: C60 Apex Limited Edition Preview | Launches 28th August

The site is back up now.

That’s probably supposed to be:
GBP3495
EUR3990
USD4370

Unclear exactly form the site...

Beautiful watch but that’s a hefty price!

Re: Would you buy one of these as the next Forum Limited Edition?

Small suggestion: the red part on the seconds hand needs to go further past the pip as far down as the red part on the GMT hand does. So that the red/black border on both hands line up exactly when they overlap.

Re: Omega X-33 Skywalker

That’s great thank you! I’ll make sure I check the manual. How often do you need to replace the battery?

Re: Quartz watch suggestions (not Christopher Ward)

I have to concur with a previous suggestion, the Longines VHP is superb. The non-GMT models come in around your budget, around 650 Euro - 800 Euro on chrono24 with paperwork and warranty. GMT is over budget. Second option - This might not be your style, but every so often a nice Breitling Aerospace ...
