The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Can we title our submissions? Or add some kind of description to give context to the image?

I don’t see why not, Andrew. As long as you include the correct model code and preferably don’t make the description too long! :lol:

I’m struggling to realize my vision for The photo for my C65 Trident Vintage, as it requires a tux and an Aston Martin DB4, neither of which I have...

I’ll work on it.

Thanks very much JK. It’s an early 70s neck fitted to an AVRI 70s body with limited edition CS 69 pickups, all Fender. I thought it somewhat matched the spirit of my C65 Trident Diver.

REMINDER:

From the instructions...

To validate your entry you must add the model or variant code of your watch. These can be found in The Christopher Ward Archive.


Early codes are quite simple (e.g. C5 Malvern SWK)

Later ones are more complex (e.g. C65-41H3H1-S0BB0-B0) but can be found by looking up your watch on the Archive.

Please edit your entries if you need to. Thank you.

Thanks Dave, I keep having second thoughts as to what to enter - as you know I post a fair few on CWE :D

Some amazing photos so far, I'm just happy to be in such good company!

This was a fun challenge. Macro is hard, storytelling isn't much easier either.
