Re: C 65 Dartmouth is poorly

Oh you should run film through it but first be sure you've not got leaky curtains :lol: :lol: The four being a back loader, access to the film curtains is easy and fixing pinhole leaks is an easy enough and well-documented fix. Have to admit I wasn't aware of a generic film advance issue though.......

Re: CWL of the day

First class service from CW in all respect; probably the smoothest purchase I have ever completed. D...

Re: C 65 Dartmouth is poorly

Disappointing, but the reunion will be something to look forward to. I was admiring your photo of the watch, do you use the Zorki? I do like those Russian cameras. I have a few - they can produce excellent results although I prefer the handling of my Kiev 4. I haven’t actually run a film through it...

Re: What’s your favourite C60 generation

All marks get wrist time here and I tend to collect the chronometer and GMT versions but assuming I want black dial and shiny case my go-to would be the MkI.

Re: The Bargain Hunters Thread

Recently I've picked up a couple of cheap, homage-style watches from Aliexpress, mostly to see if a particular watch style suits me wrist before chasing down a "real one". It's not as if I spend every night of the week socialising so I'm hoodwinking no-one with these. Some of them are prov...

Hmm, brown looks particularly nice.

Glad they decided against packing "Seiko Presage Sharp Edged " across the dial.

Re: Non CW of the Day

This Pagani Design arrived this week. It's a fun way to get "that look" on your wrist and it's a big change to my usual fare.

Re: C63 Elite - innovation or gimmick?

Thanks for bearing with me.
