Hamilton or CWC.

Recommended Posts

Not sure if the rules let me mention the jewellers, but the Hamilton is available new for £693 online.

Now I look again I'm not sure about that textured bumpy looking dial, so I think if I was making the decision I'd rather wait for the Mellor-72 posted above.  I'm a little disappointed in CWC putting an apostrophe in "70s" in their video....

As long as the price doesn't have a comma after the first figure in the price I'll forgive the odd apostrophe misdemeanours.

Mellor 72, what's that all about. 

The Antonia de Sancha 51 automatic will be out soon.

But looks nothing like the watch they claim it’s based on, the Rolex 3139

And the Rolex, at 34mm

You wouldn't want a replica or copy though would you?... There are many strong hints to the Roly and it is a gorgeous looking thing!

CWC are bringing out a handwinding G10 similar to the original ones (the Mellor72) just watched a video promo on their fb page. No price mentioned as yet that I can see though!

 

 

Its now on their website , priced at £449 .

To be honest I expected it to be around the £600.00 mark so I'm pleasantly surprised.

Strap doesn't fit properly though by the looks of it!

18.5 mm lug width, strange size ?

I was very pleasantly surprised too , I thought it would have been closer to the price of the Hamilton . I like it very much and may purchase one soon .

Currently weighing up my options, trying to be good, selling to buy. Think that may go a bit bandy somehow!   :whistle:

Opinions on these two, given the choice, which one,

The "pretty" Hamilton @ £720,

or the CWC @ £449.

The Hamilton is a handwinder with 80 hours reserve, the CWC has the trusty ETA 2824 auto.

Not after a watch at the moment, but may be able to get a new Hamilton Jazzmaster quartz for £200, tempting. With regards to the two watches in question, I don't really like either of them.

CWC for me. Has a date window, reliable workhorse inside, still strong heritage and bargain price compared to Hamilton.

However, whatever floats your boat really.

Cheers.
