Re: C63 Sealander Collection

I'll throw in a vote for the Tide straps in 22mm. I think they are missing out on an opportunity there! A black with red stripe would look great with my C65 AM GT LE! I just noticed that you can get the C60 Bronze COSC LE on a black with white stripe Tide strap. That watch is 42 mm with 22 mm lugs....

Re: Bulova Lunar Pilot Limited Edition Grade 5 Titanium 50th anniversary of Apollo 15 / Lunar Landing

Since the original video is now private and the watch isn't even on Bulova's website I would say that it might be a case of an accidental trigger pull. I would think it would be released closer to August. We might see it again the closer we get to the 2nd.

Re: MKIII Bracelet Half-Links Are In!

Unfortunately, I think this is true across the board. I had the issue too and solved it by doing the same thing as you. Mine seems very secure too. I only added one half link per bracelet so I had plenty of hardware available. I would like to know what they say though. I hope that it is just a case ...

Re: Pressure Testing

This is the best video I have found that shows all of the different equipment used to pressure test a watch. It is very in-depth but worth the time IMO.

Re: Free limited edition AM GT 1VEV CW watch up for grabs

Don't throw in the towel yet. It hasn't been that long since the surgery. It may feel like you have slid backward for a while but with rest and some rehab work you should see gains over time. The key is to do what the docs/rehab specialists say (to the letter) and keep a keen eye on the future.

Re: The Golf Topic

I just started listening to a really interesting podcast from Ben Clymer from HODINKEE and Adam Scott. In the podcast Scott is preparing for the 2021 Masters. It is a very interesting look at how a tour professional approaches the game and approaches getting ready for a major tournament. The podcast...

Re: Can I wear my watch while Golfing ?

You know how the pros are always looking in the book they carry? That is a yardage book where they have mapped out each hole to the yard and any hazards. They have also mapped every green. They only guess on yardage when they are very far off of the mark. Other than that they know almost exactly how...

Re: US Customs Help

People here in the US aren't used to importing stuff or importing stuff that is subject to duty. I am not sure why it is but most merchants have a presence here and ship from here. It is a little different from the UK because not everything is subject to duty. The government picks and chooses what t...

Re: How Much Adjustment in a CW Bracelet?

Just sent an email inquiring about half links for the bracelet for my C65 AM GT LE. I seem to remember someone saying something about an adaptor to retrofit newer bracelets to older watches so as to take advantage of the half links? I’m I correct about that? I think they were making end links for M...

Re: GMT watches and Customs

It is strange that CS never responded. They are always very prompt in my experience. If it were me, I would have tried to call CW CS as well as the email.

Re: Your best timekeeper?

I use an app called WatchTracker when I am doing timing runs. It allows you to add a data point whenever and does all of the math in the background for you. You can always see the rate for a given run and it also calculates a spread across all runs. I find it a better representation than a timegrap...

Re: GMT watches and Customs

It seems to me that there are enough issues with US customs/DHL that CW should add a section to their FAQ telling US customers exactly what the process should be and what to do if it goes wrong. Was this the sort of thing you were thinking of? EC1345E7-14FA-487E-B029-07F795F89CF9.jpeg Here’s a link...
