Ah, but to be a true lockdown chronograph it would have to have a one year subdial with a hand that ticks round so very, very slowly.... :lol:

True! :lol:

Anyway, I reported my negative test on the NHS website half an hour ago, and they have just sent me a text and an email to tell me I tested negative. You gotta love it.

As much as I like these watches, I’m actually more impressed by the business and design decisions on the part of CW. I like the direction this is going, a lot.

Great stuff! You could be one of the first then. Best get those photos up pronto when it does arrive! :D
Mine's still sitting at 'Being Prepared For Despatch' so I'm hoping I too get an email update like yours soon.

I ordered the 1 VEV on bracelet.

Ordered at 09.21 Friday morning, at least that’s the time of my confirmatory email.

Thanks JPGR ! Mines a 2VEV, and opinion is that they sold out of held stock, if not the 150 total - so I guess it will be a bit longer for mine ...

Oddly the bracelet 2VEV is now listed as out of stock, but you can still pre-order it on a strap. Is this to prevent the use of £100 vouchers?

I'd hope that's more a stock update required by the web team than an attempt to stop people using the discount code on a £600 watch.
No small print on the voucher suggests that a £600 VEV wouldn't qualify.

1 VEV is available in stock, 2 VEV is pre-order for mid-March.

Neither is available on a bracelet, only on straps.

The C65 Bracelet Chronograph 22-STL-14-SXS-MA-ST which the C65 AM GT/VEV uses is on pre-order.

Make of that what you will.

Hmm, C65 bracelets do seem to be available to buy though.
Maybe the VEV is selling well and they have decided to nip the £100 discount 'loophole' for the VEV on a bracelet.
Not exactly cricket, but it's their bat and their ball - and I'd be doing the same if it was my business!

It does qualify, I ordered my V2 on bracelet using the voucher code for net cost of £500. Just thought it odd, they have the watch heads, they have the C65 bracelet (albeit both on pre-order), but you can't buy the VEV on a bracelet.

Weird. I tried to use a valid code I found and it wouldn’t add. What’s the code that works?
