Awards ceremony is tonight, Oct. 2, for the Watch of the Year.

Happy days!

Let's just hope it is reasonably priced!

Hope CW does well tonight - it should be on TV! Surely of more interest than the Oscars? :D

Regrettably, I must inform you that the C9 Jump Hour and CWL did not win the award.

The Watch of the year in the category went to Meistersinger.

See here.

Congratulations to Meistersinger on the Watch of the year Award.

That's too bad :( But it's nice that it was on the very short list.

They mentioned build quality of the Bremont... Is it really that much better?

Reference the couple of Bremont topics and you can judge by the opinions there.

That's a shame but still a really significant achievement being short listed. Well done CWL.

Oh well. Brilliant to be short listed but I guess the best watch won, even though it only has one hand. Hang on...

That's a pity but a big achievement to be short-listed. The winner is nice but hasn't it been around for a while. What was new about it for 2012? Maybe the mono-pusher for next year :D
