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.
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?
125loupe20 for US customers, though it only works for orders over $600.

Ah. I’m dumb. I was trying it on the strap versions. Thanks.

C65 AM 2VEV dispatched today at 09.10 - ordered last Thursday around 11.00 am.

Not too bad in the end ! Altho, no Order No is quoted in the Email & the Tracking link uses a different Order Refn ..... too early for the DPD Link to work too ...

Despatch email now received. :D
Although by my reckoning, there should be some photos appearing on here today.

Maybe a 1VEV - too early for the 'premium' 2VEV .... :P

Mine was timed at 09.11, now at 15.16, DPD still doesnt recognise the Tracking #

I think its strange that CWL dont include the original Order # in the Dispatch Notification email ?

That is likely to be that although CW have dispatched the package, DPD have yet to collect it from CW Towers.

Perhaps?

Not 'perhaps' - Probably !

The Info is transmitted electronically from CWL to DPD, so doesnt really need a waypoint of Collection time - but maybe that triggers things I guess.

It would be better to know that the Order is actually enroute, rather than sitting in an Out-Tray all day ....

... and the 'Meta' link provided in the Dispatch Email isnt that helpful, using different Admin #'s - why not just quote DPD's actual tracking # ?

OK, at the end of the day, the Watch will arrive 'tomorrow', but the process could easily be made more understandable - especially if one has multiple orders, so that is more simple to see which order has actually dispatched....

I received my 2VEV today, have sized the bracelet, and am generally delighted.

I love the movement, I had the same in an old C7 IRR I used to have. However I note that the user manual neglects to detail how the movement can be used for recording split times. It describes the basic stop / start chrono functionality only. Seems a strange omission for a "racing" chrono. The C7 IRR manual certainly went over it.
