C7 Apex LE loss by UPS

Post by forgepicture »

Cheers everyone!

If any of You fellows will ever happen to come across this beauty please let me know…the package with this particular CW Apex has been 99% lost by UPS a few months ago, more likely stolen by the stuff. 😤 while travelling from Poland to US. Last known location is Köeln, Germany.

Limitation number is 38/50

Thanks in advance!
Stay safe :)

Good luck, fingers crossed for you. Rare items like this often end up easier to track down, I believe.
I’ve had similar issues with UPS, as well as DPD and Hermes. I’ve never ended up significantly out of pocket, but each event has meant that I have gone through dozens of hours of phone calls and emails, stress, worry and hassle.
In fact, only Royal Mail has never given me any cause for worry.
Just my 2p worth, keep well.

Not with UPS unless you have third party insurance. UPS sells you a declared value, but not insurance. People seem to be confused often and think they’re buying insurance.

Same here. I always use RMSD for posting watches I sell, and I like to receive them that way as well.

In the recent "What would make CW great?" thread I mentioned a return to RMSD. I know the local postie and I know that if I'm out my parcel will be at Dibley PO (10 min walk) by around 2:30, with a card through the door.

I've had mixed results with the Royal Mail using RMSD.
1x successful claim for a repair to a watch that got damaged with nothing more than a few pictures and a repair bill to show, but also 1x unsuccessful claim for another watch that got damaged and had the A-Z of pictures, evidence, bills, receipts and went all the way to the review panel with no avail.

Hope your C7 Apex turns up safe ad sound.
