That was a nice, comprehensive set of replies. I'm now thinking CW needs to perhaps focus more on North America given the watches are already selling themselves there. In total, that market is huge compared to the UK.

Start using the LJP G100. It's a drop in for Sellita sw200 and ETA 2824s so no need to change cases etc.

Likely sending prices way higher for even the cheapest models. I don’t see any benefit to that.

t’s bonkers to me how much access this forum has to the CEO of a rapidly growing company
I think that is part of what helped build the brand? Reading the forum must be great for CW, I would expect that someone from the company has a glance through every working day - some companies spend an absolute fortune on market research and often don't get a lot for their money.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left

It seems the leak has been fixed, good on CW for fixing it.

I’m assuming it’s because the 300 Pro can currently be searched for and seen on CW’s webpage, despite it not having been officially launched yet.
