sorry guys, chromebook not copying and pasting for some reason but interested if anyone considering the new Christopher ward C1 Glow, i love it and trying to find a reason to justify spending another 1.6k on a watch........cheaper option by nearly 1k is the sapphire black though........choices, choices.

Ahh this I did not know. I have a CW C8. My father is looking after it for the nonce as the numbers are large enough for him to read.

C
The nonce ?

It's been a while since I watched The Sweeny , I know what it meant in the 70s

I’m not really a watch person but I’ve a few nice ones. For working on my cats and DIY etc. I normally just keep on my daily Omega speedmaster. It been brilliant and whatever that glass and dial are made from I’ve no idea but they’re not scratched.

Question: all my watches are auto-wind jobs, so when I wear one I reset the time and give them a good shake to wake them up. Does it do them any harm sitting in a box without running?

Don't think so. Certainly none of mine ever had any issues, although I keep them in a winder now. But that was so I could take them out of the box and just wear them. Not so much the case now!
