Re: NPD T4 project

WR rating-It is sufficient for a dive watch. Anything more is near pointless. Less would also not be desirable. Things you don't need IMO: Helium release valve-Please don't do this unless you are specifically targeting a contract to supply equipment for saturation divers. It is just a failure point...

Re: NHS DIY

Quite impressed that NHS sends out FIT testing kits. They are a standard test here for us "over 50's", and are covered by healthcare, but, like all tests, require a trip to the doctor to have the test ordered. Mine is currently sitting on the bathroom counter, taunting me every time I numb...

Re: Do you wear a different watch every day?

I don't wear a different watch every day. If I'm having lazy days at home I may not switch watches for a few days. Sometimes I'll wear the same watch 2 days in a row for work. I rarely wear two in the same day unless I switch out what I'm wearing to go mountain biking (usually wear my G-Shock for th...

Re: A Watermelon Watch

Awesome! That movement is beautiful, and your pics show off the dial texture nicely. Good pickup :thumbup: :thumbup: The ST19 is a great movement for the price, both for style and function. It's likely the only column-wheel chronograph movement you'll find in a watch under $1k (My HKED 1963 Chinese...

Re: NPD T4 project

I don't have a Mk3 or any lightcatcher case watch, but I do own a Mk2. I think the PCL's work very well with the polished ceramic bezel. My preference would be PCL's with polished bezel, and brushed center links with matte bezels. With the current bracelet adjustment works fine for the collectors, I...

Re: A Watermelon Watch

LOVE the colour of the Desert Sky dial. Really like the playfulness of the dial text. Hate the strap, but that's an easy fix. What isn't an easy fix is the horrible asymmetrical sub dials. Sorry Lindsey, but asymmetrical sub dials are a travesty and should never be allowed (personal opinion only of...

Re: 60/60 Declined!?

Colour us surprised watches get mixed up at CW HQ. Once upon a time they trialled new systems, including a status card that stayed with the watch. I wonder what happened to those initiatives... If only there was a way to track watches when in the possession of CW. I know this is completely crazy, b...

Re: The race for Emma's wrist space

I'm not a follower of professional tennis, but I think all of Canada (and England as well I'm sure) followed the US Open this year. What an amazing story, with an 18 y/o Brit and a 19 y/o Canadian, both virtually unknown, making it to the women's final.

Re: Craniosynostosis

Thank you for sharing your story. Over the years I've had a couple of patients with Craniosynostosis diagnoses, but as a paramedic I don't have the luxury of following these patients afterwards, so this is the first time I've seen the results of the corrective surgery. All the best with Hamish' cont...

CW REALLY needs to find a new carrier for shipments to the United States. I don't think DHL is qualified to manage these shipments.

Re: NPD T4 project

Movement Summary Improving the overall accuracy would be a plus, without moving into a COSC movement. This would suggest a Sellita SW300 or ETA 2892 type movement which are also slightly thinner. I don't see this as the only option for improving accuracy. Two other options come to mind: 1) Using an...

Re: NPD T4 project

One comment has suggested a narrower inside edge of the bezel to allow larger dials and crystals without enlarging overall case size. The thinking being a more streamlined appearance and enhanced visibility in smaller sizes. I understand why some would want a narrower bezel, but from CW's perspecti...

Re: The temptation was too much!

Wrist size is 7.25 inches. As to which wears the larger, in my opinion there’s not a hair’s breadth in it. All measurements approximate. CW: diameter 39; with crown 42.5; dial 33; L2L 45: height 12 MS: diameter 38 (but hard to measure because the case is quite cushioned); with crown 41; dial 34; L2...

Re: This must be my hublot moment

It's ridiculous (in the best way possible) and fun, and I wouldn't wear it, but I definitely like it, and if I saw it on someone's wrist I'd know they don't take themselves too seriously.

Re: Same old, Same old from CW?

I think one thing this thread has shown, is that CW has some ardent fans that would like to either build an entire collection of varied CW styles, or at least have a collection that includes CW's from a wide range of styles. I think that this is a strong statement about the following that CW has bui...
