I'm afraid Chris' chuckle that a loose screw in the back of a CW watch doesn't inspire me to buy anything for the foreseeable future.
Current collection incl Alpina, Breitling, Casio, Citizen, Eterna, Omega, Oris, Rado, Rolex, Seiko, Tag, Timex & Tudor.

Was a great event, slightly marred by unnecessary ‘dirt throwing’ about technical issues encountered by someone who was not present!

Whilst I won’t be buying anything in the current range I’m still supportive of the effort CWL put into their range and hope the 40mm GMT might be the next one, let’s hope they’ll be using a ceramic bezel!

Have a great day, everyone – the sun is shining! I wish I could join you, but I’m on a coach to France at 0700 tomorrow.
Poor excuse! :)

Plenty of time to pack. GTG finished at 3:00pm. On train home now. Hic. :lol:

Packing done, Neil. But when you are taking 40 kids abroad for a week you would simply not believe the number of last minute emails and phone calls from their parents! I always leave this particular day very free.

Variations on the theme in 40mm, including GMT, are due for release in the not too distant future.

40mm in Black / Black has been the best seller of the C60 Trident Mk3 releases.

^^^^ Just jesting! :)

I sort of worked out why it would be difficult.

Have a good trip. :thumbup:

I’ve always felt the 38mm-43mm range was at both extremes of what I can wear comfortably, and that 40mm would be perfect. It seems the C60 Mk3 buyers agree. If that gives CW a reason to expand the C60 range at that size, that would be a good thing IMV.

I suspect that news will be treated with some interest.

I’ve watched almost 30 minutes of the video on YouTube but eventually given up as I’ve struggled to hear the audio clearly. Hopefully a summary of the mani Q&A items will appear.

Agreed, had the same problem at all of them, have to be honest it kinda puts you off bothering to try.

I ended up putting in my earbuds and could just about make it out. Other than Peter - he was muffled throughout. Decent audio really isn't that hard to do.

A member of CW staff told me today a blue 40mm would be released in October.

While I have found the audio to be progressively better each time, today I also wore ear buds and found it much better. I don't know if today was the acoustics or not, but there seemed to be a lot of reverberation. However, with the exception of Peter, it was still an improvement overall.
