Re: Do you wear a different watch every day?

Do you wear a different watch every day? No. I can often wear the same one for days. Do you have a set rotation that you follow? No. I’m not that organised. Do you choose according to the style of the day eg business / home / sport? Only when wearing a beater eg. G-Shock Do you choose according to w...

Re: Holiday watches

I must say it was a very difficult decision… I can empathise. I started this thread before going to the Algarve in 2014. Makes interesting reading now. Back then, at the stage I was at with watch collecting, which watches to take on holiday seemed to be the most important question. To be honest, I’...

Re: Holiday watches

I hope the OP doesn’t mind my expanding the scope of this thread. My decision is made. One of the qualities of a GADA/GODO watch is that it covers all bases on a trip. Taking other watches kind of defeats the objective. Besides, I love travelling light and I’ve learned from experience that I can do ...

Re: Watch running slow…question

^^^ if it’s running at more than -20 S/D then in theory it’s too slow because it is outside specs. Monitor it for a while and see what happens, but I would think that as it’s coming up for five years old you might consider cutting your losses and getting someone local to service it. It will save all...

Re: A week of Wards (not the hospital kind)

A splendid series of photos. As Kip says, it’s good to see some of the older models. A great series of pics. My favourite is the first one with the matching feet. :D I think they used to charge extra for the feet. ^^^^ Very much looks like it is the green bezel GMT, Andrew. Sent from my Xperia 5 usi...

Re: Holiday watches

Great pics of your watches!

I see no offset on the GMT, so unless you’re being lazy my mind says either Portugal or the Canary Islands. Whatever, that beach looks fantastic. Enjoy the rest of the holiday.

Re: “Nereus” - a review of the C63 Sealander GMT

^^^ you are right, Chris. It is very adaptable, and I think CW have cracked the GODO/GADA concept with these watches.

^^^ When I got my Sealander GMT I spent ages trying to turn the bezel. Then I realised it was fixed. :wink:

Re: Newbie CW Owner

Hello and welcome. I have looked at the CW Archive to see if I can find the model number you quoted. My suspicion is that it is not the five day movement because that usually has something like 5DA in the code. So it’s probably a COSC version of the ETA 2824-2 or the Sellita SW200-1. I’m pretty usel...
