Thanks for posting this Patrick.

Interesting that CW have selected the C60, over and above the C65, for the Royal Marines watch.

I'm not surprised. USMC here :). We as Marines get the harder rated watch. This is because we are much tougher than the other branches and need that ruggedness.....

Couldn't agree more, they wouldn't even let us use the full assault course back in my day... aircrew are quite delicate you know :lol:

Nice watches but the CW ship has sailed for me.

Still too much marketing garbage for me: 'Glass act', 'Black pool illuminations' etc, I'm sure the new Loupe will be full of the same so won't bother looking at it. :roll:
I hate to admit it Chris but I’m with you mate. I really wanted to put a CW back in the box but I’m really struggling to feel a connection to the company anymore. Things move on I suppose but CW are a million miles away from the company I’ve bought 8 watches from in the past. I really wish now I’d have held onto one of my older logo models as a reminder to when they were my ‘go to’ for a new watch. I’ll be keeping an eye on sales corner for an older model that rings my bell but, as far as new watches are concerned, I can’t see me spending with them but never say never - something may change my mind in future but I doubt it.

I think it's going for something like this look... https://www.tudorwatch.com/en/watches/b ... 9230r-0012

I agree that white might look good too, but do quite like this vintage style lume, however I'd need to see it in person first... maybe an early(ish) Xmas present :lol:
I’ve got nothing against vintage lume. I love it on my C65 Trident Vintage, but for some inexplicable reason I just DON’T like it on the C65 Trident Auto.

Now that Black Bay, that’s just a thing of beauty to me and looks significantly better than the red bezel C65 Trident auto. I think what makes the big difference for me is the gold accents on the BB versus the silver accents on the C65.

New releases. Nothing horrible there, but nothing either that gets me reaching for the wallet.

There are a few people on the forum whom I tend to regard as barometers when it comes to new release time. Not the ones who are super enthusiastic about everything, nor the ones who always seem to find some little fault that they could improve on. Somewhere in the middle, which I suppose is what makes them good barometers. I have noticed over time that when these individuals are enthusiastic about a new watch, it tends to do well. I won’t embarrass them by naming them, but you may have a little fun scratching your head. :silent:

Anyway, according to my barometers the Super Compressor and Lympstone could be destined for a bright future. Response to the bronze C60 and the red/black TD has been slightly more muted, so difficult to tell at this stage. As far as I can see with these two it’s a case of cosmetic adjustments, but basically “as you were”.

The only recent watch they've produced I like was the AM GT, but money at the time wasn't available.

The new ones, just don't like the super compressor, and I like the dial of the Lympstone, but otherwise no.

so not for me...

I certainly reckon that the Super Compressor will do very well. :thumbup:

Subject to seeing real life pics I will likely buy one on a bracelet as a nearly new. :)

Whilst for me a so called Super Compressor is more about the style of watch than the original technical concept, it is to CW’s credit that they have constructed it as a true Super Compressor. :clap:

The Lympstone is a strange one. Not sure what to make of it.

The texture/colour of the dial is pure genius. As someone rather familiar with the Exe estuary, I cant get out of my mind visions of being stuck in the rather dark, oozing mud that is exposed at low tide. :)

Same here, plus an envelope with a letter and the £100 off voucher included.

Now heading to eBay to sell voucher as I don’t need it at the moment. :lol:

Plus, I’m very interested in the upcoming Beatles documentary by Peter Jackson, released 4 September (see page 40)

I’ve not commented on the new releases yet (so it’s not me that AVO is commenting on :D ), but I don’t think I’ll be working out how to fund any of them. Thankfully. :lol:

The Super Compressor is just not for me. It has some great features, but I’m not a fan of the case shape. The Lympstone is much more to my taste. I’d rather there had been a date. When I read ‘carbon’ I was excited that the case was black carbon or ceramic. But it’s just the dial so this is another no. And the bronze C60 is smaller than I like. Which makes me regret selling my C60 MkII bronze. I may pick one of them up one day. So two out of three that I essentially like with reservations and one which I don’t really like.
Trying not to buy any more watches...

I agree about the case shape, but I love everything else about it - especially the dial. However, I'm not in the market for a new watch for myself, however, I was planning on buying a C60 Sapphire for my son's first real watch, so the voucher is timely. (And I received both the Loupe and the voucher).

Can tissues of Loupe be read online anymore? My print copy has yet to arrive here in the states, and I can't seem to find a digital version on the CW website like one could find before.
