@Amor Vincit Omnia It certainly sounds that way. Poor fish!

I think CW should be chuffed that the weight of opinions about the company have broken their server :lol: Better an opinionated following than one that doesn't really care either way. :thumbup:

It’s worked for me now, must have been a Sunday morning glitch.

Interesting to see how the questions have developed over the years, as CW has attracted a wider group of customers with,
I imagine, an increased number who spend multiples of CW price point watches on watches in their collection. The Bel Canto effect. :)

Even so the other brands section does seem a bit weird - including MB&F and Moser, but if you have a Seiko you need to include it under “other”!

Maybe including such high end, niche, small production brands may be a subtle marketing ploy by CW. Trying to link by association.

The last question seemed to overestimate the importance of watch collecting, using a verb that most would reserve for the important people in their life.

^^^ do you mean we're being subtly marketed by CW as we're filling in a questionnaire on our opinions on CW?? I'm not sure why this should surprise anyone. It's no big deal to me that CW have an agenda? :-k


*Editing this because as soon as you use the word'agenda' it seems to take on a kind of underhanded meaning (which I wasn't attaching here).
CW may have had certain questions in mind that they wanted answers to when they set up the questionnaire. Like 'do CW watches appeal to owners of certain other independent brands that we'd like to model?' In this case, seiko is an 'other' brand wrt what specific information CW want to gain from the question. :thumbup:

Like the rest of you, I promptly responded & filled out the CW questionnaire. I remember filling out a CW survey several years ago & many of the questions are different this time around. I distinctly remember being given a choice of several finishes for the exhibition case back & asked which I preferred. Anyway, money towards a new watch for a fortunate winner was a nice incentive.

Would I be the only person who completed the CW survey twice?

First time around was taking the link from this post, second time around was responding to a direct email from Christopher Ward/CW. (Fast forward to the section on direct emails from CW and how much they make me feel closer to the company :shock: )

First time around I gave the answers I wanted to give, second time around I gave thought to what answers CW were hoping to hear.
C60 MKI, MKII, MKIII: "some",
C6 & C60 Kingfishers,
C600 Tritechs,
C63 "some",
C65 "some",
C4, C40, C8, C9, C3, C5, C20 & 23FLE
Some other brands

No it doesn’t surprise me and I think it is quite clever. For the reason I suggested.

Any survey will analyse the breakdown of “other” rather than leave it as an anonymous lump, so they would still end up knowing if any forumites own a Moser (production about 3,000 pa) or MB&F (about 400 pa).

If you could do that clearly something is wrong and C.W. they should do something about it because the end result will not be the right one.

Once an individual can complete a survey more than once, the results become invalid.

I've just completed the survey myself and I have to say it seems very badly designed. Despite not ticking the box to say I received email from CW (because I don't and never have) I was then asked a series of questions about what I liked about emails from CW ...

As others have said, the list of brands is curious - e.g Swatch but not Seiko? Marketing is an odd game isn't it?

One thing's for sure, I won't be winning the prize!
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
