    CWC GS QUARTZ NAVIGATOR WATCH

    Any one have any experience with this model? I like the look of this as it reminds me of my Omega Dynamic and I like the idea of having a quartz version. I also like the larger hands and lumed numerals, which I know is non standard. I assume this was never an issued watch?

    Quartz Navigators were issued, both with lume and non lume.
    Non lume are particularly rare.

    Which model are you referring to? The G10 GS Sapphire?

    I've occasionally thought about trying that model myself but they never seem to be in stock since they released the sapphire version.

    I like the handset and the lumed numeral. I'm going to contact CWC and see if they have any plans to restock.

    Thats a nice variant.

    I picked up a Sapphire a few weeks ago, with an old T dial. Really lovely watch to wear - screw down crown and fatter case.

    Gerard, I sold my G10 to Johnny above as I considered it too similar to the Dynamic.

    Sorry to detract the thread - but are the old T dials a different colour of black to the non issued Luminova dials. The t dials look blacker sort of ink black than the current Silverman's g10, which look well, grey or Matt black. Is this true or my eyes being deceived??

    My thinking was to have a quartz backup that I was less precious about, not that I'm too precious about the Dynamic.

    Yes I see that now reading the original post now!

    Please be aware it seems to wear a fair bit smaller than the Dynamic,

    I think that's down to the domed sapphire crystal of the GS Sapphire pictured above, they certainly enhance the dials IMO. I've owned a good few G10's in my time and have never noticed a difference in the shade of black tbh.

    I have a GS Sapphire with Desert Storm dial which I had owned before in a standard G10 case, and the dial looks so much sharper than it did previously with the acrylic. I still love the warmth of acrylic though and aside from water resistance always prefer it.

    I have the G10 Quartz with date and its a watch I keep coming back to.

    In a collection of about 14 watches the CWC always gets wrist time. A great watch.

    On my twig like wrists, that is probably a bonus. :)

    Thanks for the observations Tetlee.
