Re: Is this acceptable on a £1250 watch?

FYI, here a video of my Elite as well as a Sinn that costs double the price. I think that's the way they are designed to operate. Sinn has as much if not even more play...

Yeah that’s true. I don’t think there is anything wrong with it, but if you are not happy, that’s what the 60 day returns policy is for.

Re: Is this acceptable on a £1250 watch?

Don’t see an issue with that - as long as it can be lined up perfectly arrow to 12 and doesn’t move by itself. In your video the bezel doesn’t seem loose - which is good. There is always a trade off in the “play” and how much force is needed to turn the bezel. The more force is needed the less play ...

Is it maybe so we get to see both the earth side and the “dark side” of the moon at all times?

Beautiful. The selling spree makes a lot of sense now. A really special piece.

Re: CW 8 watch collectors case

I concur with srs1286. The Wolf boxes are great. I got this 10 watch case with little drawer - paid 165 GBP at the time. WOLF Watch Storage case: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00WMGSDM2?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share Also got one of their travel cases, that on the other hand is useless. Nothing but a super...

Re: Another Elite 1000 (mk3) arrived!

Quick question for the other Elite owners here: What does your manual winding sound and feel like? I have a few watches with the SW200 movement and the Elite feels a little rough to wind - I have a video here. The first 10-15 turns feel a little rough and uneven, then it becomes a little more steady...

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!
