C8 MKII Manufacture Time and Ship Date

Post by JRAD »

So I have my C8 MKII Vintage Speciale Edition in PVD Black in the queue and all I have heard is -
Pre Order end February means that the stock is not ready until end February. We will dispatch shortly after this.

Does anyone have a clue what this means? By my Calendar... it is the end of February... Thanks for the tips. :shock:

CW mean the end of the month(ish)! Dates can (and do) get put back depending on supply from the factory, quality checks here in the UK etc. Don't sweat it, they'll be along shortly :D

I realize that I am inpatient like thirsty drunk but I waited months to save the funds for this watch and now the waiting is down right forcing me to drink... like a drunk. I believe I have successfully blamed one addiction on the other. Mad skills I say! It would just be helpful to have a date to get pushed back. Love your Avatar by the way!

Thanks for the calming words.

It's probably worth dropping a line to wizzie for the official line.

Nice! I did send her a note directly via email so I will wait for her response before I tap this avenue. Thanks!

I have heard on this forum that the PVD is as tough as nails. My only concern would have been if it wears or scratches easily. I absolutely love the look, so no question there. The lovely Wera got back to me to tell me that production is running behind and I should see her around the end of March. While disappointed... I totally understand and will do my best not to drive you all crazy with my anticipation.

What you need is another CW to keep you going while waiting for this watch. Go on the website and just pick one you like, order and pay and it'll keep you amused in the interim.

Sounds like a plan... I just need some of you rich watch fiends to buy a few expensive prints from me and I will get right on it. :)

I really like (and want) the vintage MkII PVD, but as I already have a MkI Blackhawk I'm not sure I can justify another C8, especially as I also have a cream MkI. So that would mean flipping the Blackhawk, and I'm not sure if I want to do that.

It's hard work being a CWL fan. :lol:

Yes, yes it is. Since it is going to take so long I decided to add a little engraving to the back. Anyone have an example of how that will look on the PVD?
