Thank you Ferg. If your comfortable, please share your thoughts on why CW has earned so much of your business? Other than your family's brilliant Rolex, what other brands have you tried and ultimately why did they move along? I still think you have it right!
As most of you know, my proper interest in horology started back in 2011 with my first CW.
Since then I have accumulated a few....
The brand and style of watch just suit me I guess.
Value for money at the time was certainly a major factor but also the quality that you got for your money.
This has changed slightly over the years with CW but these two main attributes hold true for CW even today.
Another major factor is that I really like when someone asks about your watch and have never heard of CW, they are way more exclusive than most 'good' brands out there and I love that. You 99% won't see another one.
I have dabbled in other brands, Seiko, Bulova to name two, maybe there was more but at the end of the day I always went back to CW, they just suit me.
Saying that, I could in future, all money dependent of course, be in the market for an Omega.
This brand has always grabbed me in a similar way to CW, more the style of watches this time and definitely the quality aspect.
But it would more than likely mean selling the majority of my collection which I'm slow to do.
Which bring me to another reason I like CW, in that you can have say 4 styles of quality watches to choose from in your collection to say just one 'good' brand, Omega etc.
I like the huge choice I have in my 'vast' collection to be able to look at it like a sweet shop window and go "Yes I think I'll go with this one today".
That about sums CW up for why I am a fan of them I guess.
