Sorry to hear that, and I hope you get yours soon!

I wonder what that will mean for the delivery dates for the second batch that was scheduled to be delivered in May - I'm eagerly awaiting the delivery of mine in that batch. I guess we'll just wait and see if there's any information about it as we get closer to the delivery dates, and fingers crossed that there are no other delays!

I'm not worried about my order, but I do think it rather strange that the C63 Sapphire GMT COSC LE has disappeared from the CW site. I know it's sold out, but other LE sold out watches are still on the site and the only remaining reference that it ever existed is the manual.

^^^ Hello and welcome. Do please visit the Member Introduction section and tell us about yourself.

With reference to your question, it seems strange to me that some sold out items are still visible, but I would agree that some consistency is needed.

It’s always been a pet hate of mine to go onto vintage watch sites and have to trawl through dozens of sold items which haven’t been removed, in order to find one that is available. Wastes time and raises false hopes.

I hope your order is secure and you enjoy your watch when it comes.

I agree - it's very strange that it has disappeared all together.

I just got an email from CW saying that my order is delayed. They said there is an issue obtaining the sapphire dials, and there is not a solid time frame for when they will receive the dials. They will be back in touch on Monday with more details, and will send out more updates when they do receive the dials (which they hope will be in 2-3 weeks).

I'm certainly disappointed about this delay, but it also just makes me even more excited to get my hands on mine! Hopefully it gets here in the next month or two.

Hi ,
If you don't mind me asking , was your original delivery date early April or May ?

My original delivery date was May. I hadn't heard anything from them at all since I ordered in March, so it's good to finally hear something about the order.

Looking earlier in the thread, it seems you were in the April batch. Have you heard anything at all from them since the original email telling you about a delay?

Thanks for the reply,
no more news since the email I posted.
I'm not sure whether they still intend to send the watches out in two batches as originally planned or all at once when the dials are available.
I will post anymore emails on this thread.

I have had the same email today, I had the early May date for delivery,

I take it that none of the Watches from the April batch have been dispatched yet?

I'm not sure anymore. The latest email I received mentions nothing about two batches, but it also doesn't mention anything about specific dates.

Thank you for keeping us updated - I will definitely do the same. Hopefully we hear more soon!

I was in the original April release that got bumped to early May. I have NOT received that email yet so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

I just received an email from CW! Here is the latest update:

"Further to our correspondence on Friday, we have had the following update:
Unfortunately we have been forced to push back the delivery date from Early May to End May due to the unforeseen delays to the dials. We are expecting to receive the watches on the week of the 23rd and despatch them the same week."

If this is accurate, based on my past experience with shipping, I think we can start to expect them being delivered in the first week of June!
