  1. 39 votes for the GMT so looking good! I initiated contact with CW about possibilities and cost involved for a limited edition GMT. The first response from CW was very positive and I really hope we can make this group purchase a reality. Looking forward to hearing more about the details and share with you.
  2. The GMT has the lead so far. As there is enough interest from more than 25 potential buyers, I will contact CW and see what the possibilities are. Poll on Facebook:
  3. The GMT could have a numbered dial as well. Guess we needed a 4th option.
  4. Let's see if we can make a Dartmouth Limited Edition happen. http://horology.world/forums/topic/219-dartmouth-limited-edition-dle-initial-poll/
  5. This thread is to determine if there is any interest for a Dartmouth LE. This is posted on both Horology.World and the CW Aficionados group on Facebook. I don' really want to make it forum or group specific and would like everyone to participate if they like these designs and would like to see Limited Edition. It is open to all members of the CWA / CWE and other Facebook groups, this HW and the CW Forum and any other CW fan anywhere else. No discrimination or rivalry, we're all in it for our watch hobby (and obsession). So let's call it the DLE for now. A Limited Edition or bespoke watch is usually GBP 75-100 / US$ 100-125 in addition to the full website price. No promo codes or other discounts will apply. It depends on the changes we want to make to the designs. Some changes are easy and others may be more involved, very costly or not even possible at all. There usually is a minimum order of 25 watches for a bespoke watch. https://www.christopherward.co.uk/bespoke https://www.christopherward.co.uk/c65-dartmouth-series-1-range I haven't had any contact with CW about any of these designs and this initial effort is meant to gauge interest. I am not even sure if any of these are possible or allowed at all so let's not get our hopes up too much just yet. We are offering 3 different designs based on the well received Dartmouth military watch. Please vote for any of the 3 models based on dial and movement design presented in this thread. Once a favorite is established, we then continue deciding and voting on other design features like the bezel (steel or aluminum), date or no-date, numbers on the numbered dial design, flat or gradient dial and so on for the winning model. Again, this is a vote on the main dial design and movement only. Please share with any group or forum. I assume there is economy of scale in play and more people wanting to buy one of these will increase or chance of making it happen and keep cost down. It is multiple choice so you can vote for all one, two or all three designs. And please discuss. May the best design win! Link to the poll and discussion on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/CWAficionados/permalink/472934959961216/ 1. Clean simple dial This is close to the original design but with a different dial color and bezel, date or no-date. 2 - Numbered dial 3,6,9 - 3,9,12 or 3,6,9,12 depending on date window 3 - GMT version Other dial, bezel and color combinations can be found here:
  6. I recently ordered and received an SKX009K2. We often read about alignment issues but I was surprised to see the hour hand was misaligned. I think Could live with a bezel or chapter ring that is not perfect but I can't handle hour hand misalignments. So this one will be going back. However, it was interesting to see this SKX009 was manufactured in May 2019. I think they were officially discontinued earlier this year and was surprised to see such a late serial number. Just curious what the last month was when production finally ended. The first digit of the serial number is the last digit of the year and the second digit is the month of manufacture (1-9 for January to September, 0 for October, N for November and D for December). This one is 959706 so May 2019. It would be interesting to see when other SKX's were manufactured so please post about yours in this thread.
  7. Here is one with steel bezel and the other one with black bezel. I like your thinking!
  8. A modern interpretation of the vintage Seamaster 300 the Dartmouth was based on. Original dial
  9. Hmmm, not sure what to think of it. It sure looks like an Alpinist and probably looks a lot better in the metal.
  10. Dartmouth GMT Dartmouth GMT Date Gradient dial Dartmouth GMT Pepsi Dartmouth GMT Batman
  11. This Oris Artix is in very good condition with just some signs of wear. It is in great running condition runs well within manufacturer specifications. The leather strap is in great condition and shows minimal signs of wear. The sapphire crystal is clear without any marks or scratches. There are some hairline scratches on the polished bezel and they show up in bright light at close range. I can't see any flaws when it is on my wrist but they are there. Other areas of the bezel doesn't show any wear. There also are some marks on the side of the case and light scratching on the buckle. I am the second owner and it was purchased by the first owner from an authorized dealer in 2019 and it includes the official Oris warranty. Reason for selling is I have another motorsport watch and too many watches n general so letting this go again. This watch on the Oris website: https://www.oris.ch/en/watch/oris-artix-gt-day-date/01-735-7751-4153-07-5-21-09fc Shipping and payment USPS Priority Mail shipping within the continental USA is included in this sale. I can accept Paypal Friends and Family from a bank account (no charge) or regular Paypal with Buyers Protection (please add 3%). Zelle Pay through many US banks can be done as well without any extra charges. I prefer to ship within the USA but can also ship to Canada (+$25) and most of North/West Europe (+$50). About me I am a watch enthusiast and enjoy trying out new watches. To keep the collection to a reasonable size, some of the watches have to find new owners who can enjoy them more than I do. Most of my watches get minimal wear and are often in excellent condition. My watches come from a smoke, pet and child-free home and usually spend time in a watch box on my desk. While I unfortunately can not accept regular returns, I guarantee the watch condition will be as described and I will be happy to accept returns if it is not. I can not accept returns if you just don't like the watch, too big/small and other personal reasons. Why would you buy from me if you don't know me? I have been buying and selling on eBay as a private seller since 1999 with 100% feedback. Please check me Seller feedback here: link . To provide proof that my username here and eBay account are the same, I included a note on my eBay profile: https://www.ebay.com/usr/frank.wulfers
