Re: Are import duties still an issue?

Ummm, I've emailed Tim Cook a few years ago about an issue, with my wife order) and got a phone call the next day from one of their investor relationship managers, there are a lot of companies (some I have dealt with) that will do what is needed to take care of a customer I realize they do exist bu...

Re: Are import duties still an issue?

Forget the import duties....Mike France one of the co-founders was contacted directly by a customer and responded quickly to fix the issue. Let that sink in. I can’t readily name any company selling any product that takes care of issues like CW does.

Re: how reliable are the new microbrands?

I have the MV Redentore I purchased recently and think it's a great watch. Like CW they responded quickly to my questions and provided great customer service. I've kept up with the recent GMT debacle which admittedly causes pause for concern so as mentioned I would be interested to see how that mess...

Re: Are import duties still an issue?

Perhaps one of the most interesting threads I've read on the forum. Only thing I can add is if those who believe this isn't becoming a serious issue check sales pages for CW. Can't tell you how many times I see the seller mentioning he has already taken the shipping/customs hit so save yourself the ...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

Some people are still coming up with clever ideas to get rid of the 9 o'clock branding... I actually like it. Have enough watches with the brand at 12... Good point and well taken! It’s not about location so much as it’s an eye sore and doesn’t fit with the design. Black/blue face with a shiny whit...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

I am at the point of tolerating the branding at 9 but feel like they really missed not putting applied twin flags at12 with a border around the date. Make those changes and I would pull in a heartbeat. The spot at 12 is too barren and the white paint around the date cheapens up an otherwise impress...

Re: CW lume quality and C65 Trident GMT

I for one am in the camp of needing lume at night. I usually wear my watch to bed or keep it on the night stand. I don’t like fooling with my phone in case I change my alarm or knock it off and can’t hear my alarm. So I use my watch to tell the time if I get up. And I travel quite a bit so I definit...

Re: World Timer, Ombre, Acan - Value for money

Very well said. I'm not a fan of the logo placement at 9 o'clock but when I look at other pieces in the same price range I'm not "wowed" at all like I am with some of the latest releases. Plus I remember when the ChrWard logo came out I swore I would never buy one but caved and glad I did. What real...

Re: CW watch design suggestions

Re: Forum down for Maintenance

First rule in IT....always say it’s going to take twice as long as it really will. If you beat the clock you are a hero but if you take the full time, well you’re still the hero! :clap: But if you take longer welcome to the dog house! :lol: Great job gents!

Re: No Name

In all seriousness, I’m a convert to the fully spelled name. However at 9 o’clock not so much. The poor chap at 12 is feeling empty looking for his woobie! Agreed. The 12 position is better, but there is an argument that at 9 balances the date window, even more so when day date. nik https://i.imgur...

Re: C60 Discounts

I was in a similar predicament and Chris Ward himself responded with the following advice: During checkout add a gift message that says do not ship until XXX, that way your watch will be reserved and only paid for and shipped when you wish. I followed those instructions and it worked for me. When in...
