True, I didn’t put it over the wetsuit, but directly on the wrist. I would not have fit over the wetsuit.

Re: Another Elite 1000 (mk3) arrived!

Nice pictures! While not the most comfortable, the strap seems bulletproof. I am happy to take that trade-off. It’s been on 2 salt water scuba dives (down to 18 meters) in the Atlantic with me and has done plenty of pool time, has been covered in sunscreen as well been to the gym a couple of times. ...

Re: C60 Trident Elite 1000 (mk3) - thoughts after a week

It was running -2 to -4 spd until yesterday regularly, when it hit +30s spd... Did a quick demagnetizing and 12 hours later:

That's a first ever for me, I have hit 0.9 with a Breitling before... Never hit 0.0 :-)
Long may it last!

Agreed on all counts :-)
Can’t wait for the bracelet! My guess is that it will be quick release but I didn’t have that confirmed...

Re: Bad experience with Christopher ward watch and it's customer services

I feel there is an issue with their email system. I submitted a form to do a return under 60/60 and called 3 days later to ask why I had not heard back. They said they did email me within a day of me submitting the form. Apologised and said email requesting details would go out again in a minute. Di...

My bezel is perfectly lined up but there is a little play, never bothered me, but then all my watches have that.

Re: Another CS nightmare (still in progress)

Only if it’s a random / representative sample :-) which the forum is absolutely not. When things go wrong people come to the forum to look for help. It’s a self-selecting sample that is highly biased. Doesn’t take away from the terrible customer experience through, clearly that still needs to be res...

Re: Another CS nightmare (still in progress)

Well this made me laugh. How is a forum admin supposed to solve CS issues?!? That’s nuts. It’s bad enough people are getting the showroom manager involved. Blaming “fanboys” and the admin team is just silly. They are a bunch of enthusiasts trying to discuss their hobby with likeminded people in thei...

Re: Review of Trident Elite 1000 LE by Fratello

I do not like the blue hybrid on Elite. Too much blue. On the other hand I find that the orange and blue together work great! That said I am a little biased as I have been wearing it for the last few weeks :-) But what in waiting for is the titanium bracelet that should launch in about a month or so...

Re: Impatient buyer here, so do I get a track and trace email?

Strange. Standard e-commerce practice on to do what’s called a pre-authorization when an order gets placed to make sure the credit card has enough funds. But then only charge / collect the funds when the item gets shipped, or at the earliest when the logistics process has started to ship - like putt...

Re: Impatient buyer here, so do I get a track and trace email?

They probably authorized the card but haven’t charged it yet. Authorizations will show up as “pending charges” in most banking apps on a credit card. They charge when they ship.
