  1. For my 50th birthday the wife said she would buy me a watch of my choice. I orginally considered a Rolex Explorer, but instead opted for a Tudor BB36. When I recieved my present, the wife had bought a Tudor BB41 instead. It was a brilliant mistake on her part. The Tudor BB41 is a very versatile. I wear it daily. It is a very sturdy watch equally at home with a suit, casual wear and also swimming in the Wild Altantic Way (ie. County Kerry). My wrist is 6 3/4 inches. I am a big fan of both the Tudor BB 36 and 41. You can't go wrong.
  2. I kind of disagree. The fabric strap which came with my BB41 is excellent. Far superior to any Nato strap I have ever come across. https://www.tudorwatch.com/magazine/article/the-fabric-strap
  3. No, logo still at 9. See the link below for more photos. http://horology.world/forums/topic/36-new-christopher-ward-c60-trident-mk3-designs-for-2019/?fbclid=IwAR3CZsKcO3SSyOvLV52kjoTXwueYFNeSI1SYqa65sHxK-mQVtcWUXaMGKRA
  4. I agree with al_kaholik. that's one good looking watch. The size looks good on you .
  5. Tudor Black Bay 58 This may be of interest https://www.watchgecko.com/the-tudor-black-bay-review/
  6. CW watches are good quality and good value for money. If you 'sign up' on their website you will get sent discount codes which will help to reduce the cost of the watch. CW have an excellenct 60/60 guarentee, so if you are not happy with the watch, just send it back for a full refund, no questions asked.
  7. I have a Tudor Black Bay 41, excellent watch, excellent time keeper. Strong, sturdy and stylist. Both Rolex and Tudor are owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation.
  8. I was in Milan, just got off the early morning train. I was tired and not in the best of moods. Whilst having coffee, I was listening to Italian radio. Then suddenly, in English, the DJ said 'Shine on You Crazy Diamond', it put a smile on my face, I listened to the song and my day rapidly improved. Even to this day, whenever I hear that song, I always smile.
  9. Christopher Ward are having a sale, here is the link before it goes public on Monday. https://www.christopherward.co.uk/events/jansale2019/half-price
  10. The Tudor Black Bay 41. The photos do not do the watch justice. The watch is a great example of understated elegance. Happy Christmas.
  11. Christopher Ward is a good buy. Keep an eye out for the discount codes. Have you considered Steinhart?
  12. CW make good watches. I have owned a few different models over the years including the C5 and the C3 Malvern mkii. Both of these watches were relaibale, with nice styling and sat well on the wrist. However, like you have said yourself, wait for either a sale or use one of the discount codes. Either sign up to CW email alerts for the discount codes or check the CW forum.
  13. One of my favourites is Tim Cahil who wrote, amongst other titles, 'Pecked to Death by Ducks' and 'Jaguars Ripped my Flesh'. Another favourite travel book was 'On the Road Reluctantly' by Dyan Sheldon.
  14. Not to my tastes, but at least time and care have been taken with the watch. Quite like the engraving/etching on the side of the case. Congratulations
  15. I couldn't agree more. Great post, great job and informative too. More please.
