Re: Noush - May 2021

Does look good Guy although it only houses 8 watches :) Definitely worth considering just the same. Hadn't even thought to look there. Can you tell me though : do you think the cushions squish up enough to close up a bracelet or deployment set to a 6.25" wrist? This is a real issue with what I have ...

Re: Noush - May 2021

I am going to get a decent box to replace the "Ebay special" currently in use.... For a little while I want to let it be and just enjoy the good place I feel it is in. I'm not a flipper by nature, each watch has been part of the journey and is still very much enjoyed. I have a good thing going where...

Re: “Collections within Collections”

For me I collected watches of all sorts (and variety is the cornerstone of life in general for me) until I got to understand what I enjoyed the most about the watches I'd chosen. And per my SOTC, I have a sub-collection of three I guess bigger investments that reflect what I now understand as my kin...

Re: Watches and politics

^^ ^^
I guess I should define my concept of "extravagance", Des.
For me it's the "just because you can" thing. If a PP perpetual calendar is something special to you, go right ahead, and you'll get no negative vibe from me. If you're just showing off then there is a frown coming your way.... :)

Re: Watches and politics

"What does your watch say about you?" is where I would have to come down since I have no interest in politics anyway. Half or so of my collection is geared towards working in an environment where I wear Hi-Viz clothing and steel-capped boots so a reasonably rugged and practical watch with decent WR ...

Re: C63 Sealander Elite

The Elite is on my wish list. I’m a bit far from ready, yet, to order. Same here. Spent a chunk just recently on a couple of Heavy Hitters. Thought I was done for a bit and now this from CW... The good news about the "not ready for a bit" is there is time for CW to release a couple of new colour wa...

Re: C63 GMT Black dial vs White dial.

It's an absolute Goldilocks this one. That slim steel bezel makes it look larger on-wrist than the 40mm Tissot, to my eyes anyway.
You are not helping me with my conundrum: white or black or maybe Elite. 3 cracking good models from CW.
Enjoy!!

Re: What’s better than a chronomat? A SUPER chronomat

You'd have to be the right sort of person to pull this one off. That wouldn't be me.
Gotta love the madness of it though, especially with the dual time dial. Overkill? Cool? Pick one per your taste.
Not for me but thumbs up to whoever said yeah let's build it.

Re: C63 GMT Black dial vs White dial.

I can't remember a watch release where black vs white was such a vexed question. And I'm of the same mind. The similarity of the black with the GS SBGN003 is one I picked up on straight away. That is a beautiful piece and I was very close to pulling the trigger on one myself. I took a left turn when...
