Meanwhile, back on Planet Thread...

That blue is a lovely colour. I would actually like to see it in a blue PVD case with a semi transparent twin flag dial and some nice yellow highlights on the bezel. Oh, wait a minute...

Planet Thread continues...
I love the color, like the word mark placement but I'm not sure I can live with the hour hand. I think I need to see more of the C60 Mk 3s before making my mind up. At least I have a showroom visit planned in the near future.

I've been hoping they sort out the name on the watch, but they can't seem to get it right. if they left the logo and got rid of the name it would be so much better.
I love the current brand name device on CW watches - much prefer it to the previous version :lol:

its definitely better than the CHR.WARD one, but it could be made better.
I’m guessing you're a graphic designer rather than just an ‘everyday’ watch enthusiast?

A matter of opinion, which of course we are all entitled to express. Personally I thought CHR. was the best version but I can live with the others. If not I wouldn’t buy.

To use an analogy, I like Greece and Turkey. However, if there were certain things I didn’t like in Greece, I wouldn’t be telling the Greeks to start making Iskender kebap, use Lira and speak Turkish. I’d go to Turkey. :D

I honestly didn't have an issue with CHR.WARD until the new one came out. Comparing back to back both the old logos look, well, old. The new one is fresh and contemporary. I still imagine one day if the logo goes back to the center that the Twin Flags will be placed right above it like every other company has it. Who knows?

and who cares any more?
Christopher Ward as a company are not going to change their minds for various reasons unless it helps their sales figures (the Military watches?).
As suggested I've ventured into Turkey and won't be going back to Greece.
