Edit: I’ll go along with the suggestion above for an extra box. ;)
Thanks, and yes indeed! The Draken is holding a spot for the CWE CHRONOMETER LE due before Christmas, but it will survive until at least March where it might form the start of someone else’s collection.

Thanks I’ve been working on it for quite some time! I had lots of rules to stop me collecting them, but now the only rule is one in, one out above 16... :shock:

Weyhey! Yes I’ve been trying to stay CW with the straps as much as possible, but I’ve also become more of a bracelet guy recently, though it’s the bicolour hybrids that I really like playing around with. :thumbup:

Thanks! Somewhat of a labour of love... all started with the C9 Worldtimer.

PS> Not a bad collection of CWs either; especially the Speedhawk. A classic.

Haha... yep! Still hanging on. Really like it - and the Speedhawk - can’t imagine where I got such great pieces! :wink:

I think I might need a green Sealander GMT now, which is odd, as I didn’t really like that model before the latest release... :problem:

Didn’t spot this when I was on holiday. We have a few impressive CW collections here, and yours is up there with the best! :thumbup:

One month on and due a bit of a rejig with the older models but when I get them out to think about selling they drag me back in!

Sorry for the very late reply BTW, for some reason I get notifications for just about everything except people commenting on my own posts. Someone else just 'thanked' me and I got the email only to find this bonus comment here. :lol:

I don’t think you get notifications for comments made on threads you start, unless the person commenting actually quotes you or you bookmark the thread.

I find that the easiest way to keep up-to-date is to go to Unread Posts when I log on.

I'm so lazy to be honest I only login when I get a notification! Otherwise it's only every few weeks... must try harder. :)

Wonderful collection here, Reubicon. Hard to pick a favorite but maybe the C40 Speedhawk? Haven't seen one of those in a long time!

Yes thanks Peteo, the Speedhawk is lovely but I've been contemplating selling it recently - then I picked it up again and realised just how brilliant it is - plus the condition is fabulous! I think what stops me wearing it is the awkward butterfly clasp on the leather strap - maybe if I found an original bracelet for it I might reconsider. So good and the only round logo CW I have... :problem:
