You should be good to go, but with DHL you never know.

I got to that step, then "out for delivery," following by four days of back and forth to finally get it to my door. They kept saying incorrect address and the address was correct. Everytime I would call they would say, yep we checked your address on GoogleMaps and it checks out. Had out for delivery notices three straight days, then in finally showed up on day four. Always an adventure with DHL

That’s sounds EXACTLY like the delivery experience my wife had with DHL.

Excellent! Be sure to post some pics when you get it, maybe even an unboxing video.

It has arrived and wow what a stunner! Didn't get to digest the includes too much. I do love the touch of the CEO Mr. France personally writing my name and signing the warranty I think it was. Also nice that the manual is designed specifically for the model and not a generic 1. I got it sized for a 17cm wrist from them. I have it on the last micro slot. Might have to put a link in if it ever warms up. ImageImage

I just paid duties on my C60 Trident LE Blue today. It is scheduled for delivery Monday. When I went to to DHL website later is showed when it sent the request for payment and when I paid it, and still shows delivery for Monday. Can’t wait for it.

Glad it all worked out smoothly. That is a fantastic watch. If I didn't already have two blue watches I would be picking one up. :thumbup:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

Congratulations and enjoy! I had to endure the Customs hold with my Sandstorm. DHL were decently prompt. My only issue was that I wanted signature delivery, rather than having the package left at my mailbox like they did with a previous delivery. DHL simply left it at the mailbox again. :/ I was home so I could collect it before someone else did.

Same thing here. It was delivered adult signature required. I was here when they showed up (luckily) and they snuck up to the steps in front of my porch, left it right on the edge of the top step, and didn't even walk on the porch or ring the door bell. Ridiculous. Good thing I live in a very safe neighborhood and was home at the time to see them arrive. Guess it's too much to ask that at a minimum they ring the doorbell and witness an adult answer like UPS does.

That would bother me big time.
