Re: C63 Sealander Collection

Does anyone with a Super Compressor also have a C63 Auto/GMT? Would love to see a comparison shot :thumbup:

Re: Non CW of the Day

The Clean Ocean is such a beautiful watch. Sometimes I wish I would have chosen the CO instead of my green Aquis (guess I'm green with envy? :dielaughing: ), but then again I have a plethora of blue watches and the Aquis is the only green one in my collection. Good to see you're still enjoying it R...

Re: C63 GMT Black dial vs White dial.

I have the white automatic and rarely do the hands look even close to black. Better make it fully orange and 100% match the lettering that already exists on the dial than make it half #000000 back and make it sort-of-but-not-really match the minute/hour hands, IMO Yeh, I don't disagree with your po...

Re: C63 GMT Black dial vs White dial.

I hear you...the GMT hand on the white dial should've been fully orange. This is the question: why isn't it? Would have matched the blank and white dials equally well. My guess is that because the hands are gunmetal on the white dial, it would be a reasonably close match to those. In reality, some ...

Re: Batons or Blobs....?

You can't beat the reflections from a multi-faceted baton in my book.

Blobs can be nicely done on the rare occasion though. Think the chamfered type on GS divers, BP Bathyscaphe etc

C65 Super Compressor Black Sand for my last day off of my week.
That does look very, very good on the CW Camel Ferg. Need to find myself a waterproof alternative of the same look.

Re: Noush - May 2021

A nicely varied collection Chris.

That Big Eye and the Stowa are beauts. My eye was immediately drawn to the dial on the Phoibos. That looks really good!

Re: Might the C63 GMT kill off the C65 GMT?

Also, I think the RRP markup is still x3, so only approx $66 of 'real' costs to CW.

Re: Might the C63 GMT kill off the C65 GMT?

Quantity of raw material used perhaps. Quite a few watch companies charge less for their smaller diameter versions of the same model. And even though the C65 bezel isn't overly complicated, there are still more steps to assembling it compared to the C63 which is going to add time/cost. Other than th...
