Mine was Partially held yesterday (07/20) and early this morning I received a "Your order is on its way" email.

I contacted customer support and got this reply…
I do apologise there has been a further delay and the date on the first email should have been End-July, we are expecting the delivery this week.

We will send tracking upon dispatch, please let me know if you need anything else.
Glad I checked because I’m going on holiday in a few days time and I don’t want the hassle of missed deliveries. They’ve now agreed to wait until I get back before sending it.

That makes you a very considerate and true gentleman, stepping out of the queue for a short while allows the queue to move forward.

Unless, of course, by some quirk of shipping and despatch your watch is allocated and plonked back on a shelf until such time as you return from your hols. I don't want to believe that this will happen in the real world but, ahem, I've worked in the civil service and well, there's a reason why I don't rule it out :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just got this email from CW less than an hour ago:
Thank you for your continued patience in waiting for the C60 Atoll.

Sadly, due to a disruption to the delivery of the watches to our UK HQ, we have been forced to delay the delivery date of your order a second time.

We are expecting the watches to be delivered to us by the end of this week, to leave us next week (commencing August 1st).

We are deeply sorry for this inconvenience, allow us to reiterate our thanks for your patience. It shouldn’t be long now until you’re wearing your new timepiece!

If there is anything we can do in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact customerservices@christopherward.co.uk

Kind regards,

The CW Team

Finally got delivered today. Purchased with the bracelet but swapped it for a #Tide strap I picked up from the summer sale. 283/350 :D

Looks great and congrats to both of you. I picked up the same strap as I impatiently wait for my high number Atoll to finally ship.

Just got a bit of good news as I checked into my CW account this morning. Until now, my Atoll order has been classified as "partially held". Most likely the reason being that I ordered a watch pod to go with the Atoll. My guess is the watch pod has been in stock & CW was awaiting the arrival of the Atoll before shipping them together. This morning, my order status had been changed to "Being Prepared For Despatch"! That indicates at least a few of the Atoll's have arrived at CW headquarters for quality control checking before shipping. I am looking forward to receiving this one!

Similar story here. I bought a NN Moonglow when the sale started on July 5. However, it failed their QC check, so they offered to send me a brand new one -- the catch being, they were temporarily out of stock. Today I got my despatch (dispatch!) notice, and the watch is at Heathrow on its way to Seattle.

Hopefully your new Moonglow arrives in Seattle as scheduled & without incident. I just received the despatch notice for my Atoll LE, so the watch is in transit to Kansas. Here is to hoping that other forum members that ordered the Atolls will be receiving similar notices!
