Re: Spring bar tweezers

^^^^ Same here.

I only use the Bergeon 6767 with fine tip for bracelets. It works perfectly well.

I use the wider standard tip on straps; it spreads the load on the strap better.

Re: A hybrid strap question.

One factor to consider with the current CW rubber straps, is that the hybrid gets an amount of stiffness from the top layer of Cordura, which is a pretty hard wearing fabric. I recall seeing or hearing comments (but can't remember where) that the tropic is softer and more flexible, compared to the h...

Re: C11 MSL, C5 Mk2 and W11

A little nostalgia, intresting to look back 7 years. A much sunnier location than Aberdoom now also. The collection has changed a lot, finally starting to settle on a few now and eradicate Rolex.

Re: The Curmudgeons Corner

I don't understand why we can't discuss items in this thread. Some of them need a discussion. Come on guys. :thumbup: Its very straight forward.

Re: Unexpected incoming

Too much (or too little)? 😅🤣😆 There's one member however who might. OK ill stop banging on about it until it arrives 😁 So, one member might recognise it, so I’m guessing it’s a chronograph that’s fairly rare on the forum. Guy? Breguet, perhaps? Type XX Aéronavale? Don't think so Steve, nice idea th...

Re: Bit confused on the C60 Trident Bronze Ombré COSC Limited Edition

Thanks guys! Probably won't get it this week, looks like stuck in customs with "Shipment on hold". Not sure if missing paperwork, will try to call DHL. It is unlikely to be 'missing paperwork' as CW provide details of the shipment / package digitally en masse on a daily basis, to DHL. The local off...

I'm in no way criticising the pictures but just to add the blacksand SC looks even more amazing in the flesh :-) Especially in bright sunlight. https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.6435-9/183806120_4600474926634914_2047917429804371197_n.jpg?_nc_cat=102&ccb=1-3&_nc_sid=825194&_nc_ohc=VWy06py4lT...

Re: C63 Sealander Collection

Great, thanks Guy. I have Issue 286 on the table to read soon. My first was the C60 Trident MkII SH21 LE. I'm not sure it was in a magazine but the ads certainly got me to go to the website and browse... Welcome to the rabbit hole, Alice... :D :D :D :thumbup: :thumbup: Starting well towards the top...

Re: Thoughts on microbrands

I'll come back to the core question of the thread later, as I have several 'Microbrand' watches in my collection, but I thought this article posted by WatchGecko today is topical and offers an interesting insight into Microbrands;-
