Re: Straps & Milanese

Sorry I can’t help here, Adam. I tried chainmail once, and found it both uncomfortable and depilatory. I will stick to the Lorica Segmentata of the traditional bracelet.

Re: Found my grail but what do you make of this?

Quick FYI if folks are interested. It was THIS video that sealed the deal, by the oddly named Youtube channel "YoureTerrific". Really well done I thought. Man oh Man I am smitten. As indeed you should be. Fantastic watch, fantastic company. I just wish that ruddy bloke on the video would ...

Re: Are CW going generally smaller?

I have heard comments about the C65 dial looking too big and throwing things out of proportion because of the thin bezel. My eyes don't see it that way but I can see how the perception could be there especially if you are used to looking at standard bezel widths. I’m with you on that one. I really ...

Re: I was never going to buy this watch!

Superb, Bjørn. I have never considered any kind of Panerai for myself, but they always look lovely.

A very appropriate way to mark your birthday. :D

^^^This!

They are very different watches. The GS is lovely, and they will fulfil similar functions, but if the Cartier is what you really want you will kick yourself if you can go for it and don’t.

This isn't part of the routine CW QC testing but perhaps it should be.
They did mention a catalogue of tests. Mind you, a bounce on that tiled floor might be a catastrophe.

Re: are the c 60 trident gmt out of stock?

In the past, the removal of a watch from general sale in June has hinted at the possibility that it could appear in the July Sale. No concrete information about this has filtered down to me, but it may well be that they are concentrating the GMT efforts on the C63 Sealander with the new movement. Sl...

Re: Trusted Seller

Makes me wish I’d have advertised the watches I’ve sold rather than doing deals ‘off forum’ - I’ve even sold to moderators in off forum deals and still don’t have a badge :lol: I’ve done the same myself from time to time. I seem to remember selling a certain yellow dive watch relatively recently. :D

Badassness!
I take it that what we are discussing here is not DDS (Disobedient Donkey Syndrome)?

Though why one should be attracted to a watch with an inferior posterior is quite beyond me.
