  1. Not often I will use the quote function and leave intact all the pics. But these three watches are all so visually interesting and aesthetically pleasing that on their own, they make a collection to be proud of. For me, your Dynamic is as near to perfection as it gets. But all three are fantastic.
  2. There's a certain irony that the error is in 'professional'!
  3. More info and pics here and info about the new movement they are creating. Seems like they are planning for a September opening. https://www.watchpro.com/bremont-pencils-in-september-as-target-date-to-open-its-new-uk-headquarters/?utm_source=Email+Campaign&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=42384-322063-WatchPro+DNA+-+2020-01-23
  4. In Henley, Seems to be coming along well and on schedule to open later this year. Clearly a huge investment. I read from a recent report that they now employ 150 staff. Pic courtesy of the Bremont Fans facebook page, but clearly an official pic from Bremont.
  5. This news article is quite timely in view of this thread. Enjoy the comments. https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/1836214
  6. My favourite is the pocket watch, primarily because of the hands! But the other two are fantastic as well. One being circa 60 years old and the other 50. The condition of both is amazing - is this the new norm for watches of that age?
  7. Some absolute crackers there. Some have had the same owner from new so I guess a member here?
  8. It's great! I haven't watched the vid - I am watching Chelsea - but they also have a newer range of, ahem, 'less' costly pieces, I have had one or two on the wrist and haven't wanted to remove them. UN is a brand I really enjoy.
  9. I really enjoyed this post, I was really expecting Alan who has a 'bumper' and other classic enthusiasts here to contribute further. Maybe they just haven't picked it up yet. There's a fair amount on here about Harwood now.
  10. That's a really great looking Mille Miglia, I like it a lot and it's good to see another on here (I have the 2015 LE). But this is a new model to me and I'm wondering when it dates from?
  11. Exactly, of the three logos, the 2nd is my favourite and adorns my CW. But when I first had an interest in the brand, that was the logo in use and it was clear that original forum members preferred the first logo! I think they're in a bit of a catch 22 with the logo. To a degree, logo 2 and 3 are the proverbial marmite examples. The question for CW's self admitted move for a younger purchasing audience, of which the move to a more 'on trend' logo was a part of, is that it is of a time and place and what happens if the younger buyers move on to the next big thing? Mike France has said in interview that at some stage he would like to hand over to new hands to run the company, to take more of a back seat role, to people they have groomed, but they only have a small workforce and it's hard to see who in-house there is to step up and this was before the 2 new directors came on board as a result of the funding they secured. And I have no idea how that effects things. Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if they (Mike France and Peter Ellis) at some stage (not yet), sell the business on as they did with the Early Learning Centre.
  12. Was it for a sale on a black PVD bracelet - hardly likely I would have thought?
  13. Ah, you went then? What did they say? The info I have mentioned is from the CW forum. Also reporting on what was said at a GTG. I don't know which one. To me, good luck to them if they have. They were clearly trying to attract younger buyers and if that has worked, then good. But it's self evident that in the process they have lost many repeat customers - such are the business decisions companies have to make.
  14. Welcome Don, I hope the forum gives you lots of ideas!
