    I recommended a Chris Ward watch to a friend for her hubby's wedding present. He loved it. Great quality. Unbelievable CS.

    I ordered a C5 on the 7th. Hopefully I'll be seeing it soon, in retrospect I think I should have ordered a Stowa.

    I don't have a Stowa, but I have a CW C5 and it's been a great watch so far. Also, it's very easy to talk to customer service at CW, which is an added benefit. Great company.

    Here is a watch I had built to my specs by a watch maker out of Japan. He is the ghost of watch making in that he is a legend in cyberworld, and hard to get in contact with and get a response. It took me 5 months, and several emails to get him to respond and to build this watch. While many will say it's a clone or fake, it is not. I am not passing it off as a PAM. In fact, I only became aware of the Paneria brand about a few weeks ago. All parts are geniune parts.

    Ken the prince of fakos is now the "ghost of watchmaking" ? [​IMG]

    the Richemont lawyers didn't seem to have too many problems finding the guy and winning their lawsuit against him

    Heard,

    you may not be passing it off as a Panerai, but I doubt if the maker shares your opinion.

    A few week ago is when you decided to copy their design? Please ...

    Interesting GMT.
    What's the history behind it?
    I don't think I've ever seen that bezel on a plain dial GMT.

    Oh, it's a completely "normal" late sixties two-tone. And a beauty...
