Well they sent a Email saying it was shipped today, or despatched on that side of the ocean. So we will see how long it takes. I am excited for this watch!

Looks like you didn't have any contact at 17:26 UK time, but did by 20:10.
Work late don't they?

I hope you enjoy the watch, if not the wait for the watch.

Didn't seem to work for me but good to know in case or when I buy another! Thx Course even tho my son is a mailman.. I find USPS tracking to be hit and miss in general.

We are getting quite a collection of USA East Coast buyers here.
Agreed about USPS tracking. It's definitely hit and miss. The Royal Mail number should still work for it though, insofar as it's capable of working, anyway.

I do think that the American East Coast contingent is fairly well represented. I know of a few other Virginians on this forum and then there's also Russ Shettle from Maryland.

Be patient - if there is a problem it will get rectified by CW. I've read far too many accounts on this forum of various problems and they appear to have all been resolved.

My expereience was different than some others here in the States. I tracked the Royal Mail parcel to the US and from there the USPS site could only report that it was in country. 7-ish days later it was in my mailbox. I had thought it would requires a signature but appently not. It sat in my 12 degree F mailbox for half a day - The Trooper Trident!! She never complained.

you'll be wearing your new CW in no time and all this will be a memory.

Thats what I experienced with USPS tracking but my 3 packages did require a signature. Luckily we live in rural area and the mailman is my wife's cousin thus he calls when we have incoming with sig required.

The Royal Mail tracking number will work on the USPS tracking page. The problem for me was that it said it was at the NY port of entry for almost 10 days and them *BAM*, it was at my door. Typical of the trash USPS tracking system. I pay extra to vendors who use UPS if possible. UPS is fast, the tracking works, and the drivers are awesome in most cases. USPS will not go out of their way in any way, shape, or form to help. It the USPS wasn't subsidized with my taxes, they wouldn't last a week competing with UPS and FedEx.

Hate to break the news to you but the USPS is not subsidized with your taxes.

Like most folks, you believe that but it's not true. Part of the bigger problem is congress still has a board that makes decisions for the Postal Service which prevents some of what they need to do. (Disclaimer: as I said above, my son is a mailman and he works pretty darn hard) . The USPS tracking system I agree is for the birds. UPS does do a good job... bet they don't want what USPS has by edict (every postal address every day 6 days a week).

Today it already states it has reached the delivery country and has been turned over to the USPS? That seemed fast.

That's the solution - I need a cousin!! :lol: Three cheers for small town / rural USA - may she live forever!

Will definitely consider Express next time.
