Australian watch week

Post by t20569cald » Wed May 27, 2015 7:35 am

So http://timeandtidewatches.com/ are doing Australian Watch Week, both in print and a GTG. Anyone coming to that in Melbourne on Friday?
I am. Decided a little 11th hour, but I am curious to meet some other people behind the Australian brands.
A little write up on the CD-2, http://timeandtidewatches.com/hands-on- ... t-diver-2/seems they liked it. The CD-1 is much nicer, so will show them that Friday night. Oh, and there will be beer.

That looks cool Todd.... I've seen a bit of local hype around "Haigh & Hastings" recently with the Gallipoli Centenary watch they released.

Hope you get some good press out of it :cheers:

I had the good fortune to be able to attend the GTG, and to meet Todd in person, (Tony with the walking stick). It was great to be able to handle the CD-1 & CD-2. :thumbsup:

Hello Tony

Glad you found the forum.
Nice meeting you the other night and I hope to do this again soon as I really did enjoy it.

I think I will. I enjoyed the night and was interesting to meet people and also the people behind the brands.
Some of the Australian watches I also liked as well.
Was impressed with how much work some local brands have done

Nice write up, but I thought you only made 75 of the CD2's. How many CD1's are in the works Todd?

Although not Aussie, I think Magrette watches make for an excellent value in watches from your region. Although cheaper, some of their offerings have pushed the envelope a lot imo.

There is only 75 CD-2 watches, but the CD-1 will be staying and done in a few different models of itself. maybe even Ceramic if I can put that together
NZ is close enough I guess and Magrette do some all right stuff.

I took some pics but with my old smartphone and poor lighting in the joint I am unsure to post them or not.

I would describe the lighting in the rooms we were in as suitable for taking a bobfocs on a date (body of baywatch face of crime stoppers)

Yes it was a little dark. Almost like a doggy meeting place of sorts, not that I would know about such places
