I managed to bag the Elite 1000, payment has been made according to my bank but CW now tell me there is a problem with payment and the order cannot be fulfilled. Still reports 'being dispatched' however. I assume this means they actually sold me a non existing watch as it had already sold out...?

I have heard many reports of payment issues but apparently the payment issues are not correct and that all is well.
Best to send and email or ring CW to confirm though.

Enjoy :D

I think you have more chance with slightly more expensive models. Anything under £500 doesn't hang about. You have less competition as the price increases, and the %markdown reduces. I wasn't desperate for a GMT. I just can't see myself using the function. That one, and two C60 GMTs were available for quite a time. There may be several of each as well. I don't know if you can tell how many of a given watch are available. I bought a black and red bezel C60 on rubber. It hadn't sold on Wednesday evening when I was considering it, but had gone by Thursday morning - but it then reappeared briefly, and I was able to get one. I would have preferred a bracelet, which made me consider it more carefully,

I’ve just receive a despatch notice for an order placed on Wednesday.

I place two separate orders on Wednesday, one for a strap and one for a watch.

Do they usually bundle two separate orders into the same single despatch?

The despatch email gives me know clue whether the watch, the strap or both are in the despatch.

If you log into your account on CW you will be able to the status of each order.

Generally, two orders will be two packages.

It would make sense if they could combine orders. With the sale you really need to order one at a time, to make sure you can complete the purchase, but the CW watch box has a space for an extra strap. Maybe it works out cheaper for CW to do each order separately though, than to spend admin time combining them.

If you could put things in your basket for a few minutes, you wouldn't have this problem, but the website works the other way, and checks availability again at check out, so the first one to complete wins.

To me this sale has been run horrible. Adding one at a time is crazy. I enjoyed the last sale they were just put up and the frenzy started. I guess some can wait around all day, but most can't.

Got my shipping notices for the strap and watch #1 from Wednesday. Just missing one notice now.

Three divers ordered in 24 hours. Yeah, maybe that’ll cover me :lol: :shock:

I've had 2 straps ordered on Wednesday shown as shipped now. Judging from order numbers there are well over 500 orders, so there's a lot of packing and labelling to do. It's not like an Amazon warehouse, I imagine.

When this brand new C60 GMT showed up this morning for $690 I couldn't help myself, despite having already ordered a 42mm GMT black/red bracelet version. This one's 40mm though so I'm not sure how it will wear on my 8.5" wrist. Hoping for the best since I find this blue/black colorway stunning! 8)

I bought this too. It’ll be my first watch worth more than $50. I hope I will like it.

I’m hoping for a blue dial C63 Elite. Did I mention that already? :lol:
Ditto.
