New here / EWC Questions

Hello, all!

i have been lurking and reading for a while on the Purists hp, but this is my first time actually posting.

i currenty own ad s/s submariner and am very happy with it, but decided i would like a second watch.
i am looking at the JLC EWC and Master Chrono at the moment.(both steel)
My dealer gave me the Chrono for the weekend and after some time i decided its not quite what i´m looking for. The EWC has been sold out in my city, next one ist bound to come in a couple of days, but the wait is just killing me.

I have some questions about the EWC and hope some of you will help me out with the info:

1. why does the EWC have metal pieces "wrapped" around the case? looks like bits of metal stuck under the crowns.

2. which part of the watch is steel and wich is ti?

3. there are (afaik) 2 le of the EWC: yellow (orange?) and the Dubai with more red color. Correct? how difficult is it do get these and does anyone please have pics?

thanks a lot in advance,

Regards,

Nick

maybe this pic explains a bit

the inner case (biggest of the 2) is titanium the outer (with the lugs) is polished steel !!

hope you can see on this pic how the 2 fit in each other, the parts you are speaking of (ti) are visible from the outside and are those that carry the crown and pushers,

i´ve done a search on the EWC, and it came up that many people had problems with their watches.

is the quality of the EWCs sold now better? Has JLC sorted the problems out?

re: EWC quality control

Several owners that received watchs from the first shipment experianced a problem with alignment of the world time ring. I have not seen any postings in quit some time re. problems. Hopefully all problems have been corrected on the later shipments.

It is an incredible watch, it will quickly become your daily wearer.

Also, the yellow EWC was a limited edition of 20, the red, Dubail edition was a limited edition of 50 for a jewelry store in Paris. I have seen both available in the second hand market, with about a $6K preminum.

You can however, order a custom strap from JLC. The one in the photo can also be order in aligator with the red stitching.

i will have the possibility to have a look at the EWC for the first time in person either tomorrow or on wednesday. really looking forward to it...decide after "feeling".

another q: what is the semi-circle dial at the 6 position? and whatever it is, how does this work?

cheers,



Nick

The semi circle that you are refering to is the second indicator for the watch, 30 seconds red, 30 white as it spins around.

Make sure you try the strap-switching device...
