Re: Where’s CW on your ladder?

I began climbing the watch ladder some 5 years ago, first through orient/Seiko, then low end Swiss Tissot, etc before going onto Longines level, then I found CW. For me, this was enough and I have stayed at CW level (usually making up the majority of my small, functional collection). An interesting...

Re: Precision, Rate and Accuracy in watches: a layman's view

So, a watch running fast or slow by 5s a day will be out by 40 vibrations out of a daily total of over 691K. That is frankly remarkable; and it repeats that feat day after day, after day. On a movement beating at 28,800 bph, yes. The Omega 1861. for example, beats at 21,600 (6 beats/sec as opposed ...

Re: The world of mechanical chronographs

I'm not sure where your budget is at, Chris, but this beautiful thing by Longines is less than half the new Speedy in price: https://www.longines.com/media/catalog/product/cache/6b283afb9915a1a90063699b59e73712/l/o/longines-the-longines-master-collection-l2-629-4-92-0-2000x2000.png Image from Longin...

To be fair, I don't think you could accuse the C65 Chronograph of lacking colour.

However, Chris has already said he doesn't like it.

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

I do like this...pity it's 43mm. I wish they did it in a 40mm size.

Re: Precision, Rate and Accuracy in watches: a layman's view

...much as I pay little attention to the concepts of accuracy or precision you portray, as I generally only wear a given watch for a couple of days at most. I used to wear my watches pretty much as you do, Guy, but over the last year or two I have worn my "main" watches for longer periods, often a ...

Re: CW with cathedral hands...

Never say never, but I just don't see CW going down this track. I don't think it would fit in with the design language to which they aspire currently. I know that they have done "faux-vintage" with a few designs (usually the Old Radium/Caramac lume). But I think this would be a step too far. A few y...

Re: Q1 watch wear report; brought to you by “On My Wrist”

Thanks for the update. I understand the theory but I think that such a methodical approach might take some of the joy out of it for me. I have watches that I just enjoy wearing for a day here and there, or once in a blue moon.

Precision, Rate and Accuracy in watches: a layman's view

I’m no horological expert, so please excuse me if I get some of this wrong, and please step in and correct if I make mistakes! We occasionally get threads on the forum where people talk about the “accuracy” of their watches, especially with watches performing or not within manufacturer’s stated (or ...
