Clach77 - June 2019

Post by Clach77 » Sun Jun 16, 2019 12:12 pm

A couple of years ago, I posted this STOC here.

Today it’s my latest one. Two watches are missing as they are currently ‘away’. There is a space in one box with a watch earmarked to come in to fill it.

This is, I hope and expect, my collection at its biggest. I’ve been giving some though to clearing some out. There’s no need or reason, but with some watches getting less wrist time than others, it may be time to move some on. We’ll see. :D

Nice set. Much respect for curating this splendid collection. I'm curious about how you select "today's watch" - it can be tricky.
I've had a go with most CW models in the true spirit of online buying - get it, try it, keep it or flip it! White C60 Mk2, Black C60 Mk2 GMT and the big blue beast!

Fantastic collection of CW's :clap:

I noticed you have no C11's, have they never appealed or did you own but move on?

Well, I seldom wear one watch for all day. Tends to be one at work and change when I get home. Still Tricky!

I’ve had one, a PVD MSL with white hands. I did like it, but at the time I moved it on to fund another purchase. I recently bought a steel cased one on eBay, but it wasn’t in the condition advertised so I returned it. I may one day get a steel cased, white hand MSL. I’m not so keen on the dive versions - to me the dial looks rather small compared to the case.

One space, for one addition (once the ones which are away are back). And that one addition will be rather special. 🙊

Very nice, like the C7 Rapide Chrono Auto and the 'red jag' the best but hard to choose from such a nice collection.

Brilliant collection of CW watches !! Still love the C40 Speedhawk….stylish and never really received its share of praise IMO.

Appreciate you sharing!

Thanks Guys.

I agree about the C40. And thinking about it, you don’t hear much about the C700 either.

Indeed, Alex. I always love looking at your watches - a single-brand collector par excellence, keeping the flag flying now that Ferg has become a Rolex man! :wink:

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.
