Re: Not a Studio Underdog Watch.

....I did see a Steeldive with a great wave dial, and a GIOIO version of the Rolex "bubbles" dial in 3 sizes (31,36,41mm) for £73.00. (Is that the one you meant @hsukirk I saw them in person while I was in China last Nov. Truth to be told, a lot of things in China cannot be searched via G...

Re: Not a Studio Underdog Watch.

They are popular & there are more fruits, at least I've also seen pineapple, banana and even bubble tea.

Re: CW not refunding duties on watch that arrived faulty and was returned

I might be the minority thinking it's much easier to allow buyers to handle VAT/Custom considering every countries have different % & protocols. .... I disagree, but only because getting slapped with an additional charge post-purchase is a bad customer experience. It's why I said I'm the minori...

Re: CW not refunding duties on watch that arrived faulty and was returned

I might be the minority thinking it's much easier to allow buyers to handle VAT/Custom considering every countries have different % & protocols. For this instance, I'm def assuming CW should have refunded in full at the first instane. I've had numours experiences that CW disptached to wrong addr...

Re: Jumping Hour

As far as I know the C9 JH MKIII 40mm was only Arabic. I am guessing the above is a mod or prototype. There is also Roman numeral version of C9 Jump Hour Mk III - 40mm Mine Is that a one-off that you created, e.g. by modifying with a disc from the MkII? I didn't think any of the C9 Jump Hour MkIII ...

Re: San Martin

I've handled 7-8 San Martin & owned/sold 1 recently. Probably the best quality "homage (or not)" Chinese brand in the market. Saying that, San Martin is nowhere comparing to CW unless you value heavily on the initial purchase cost. (another point re AliExpress/eBay pre-charge VAT, ever...

Re: TEN more LIMITED EDITION BEL CANTOS

Feel likes a transparency dial like Studio UNderd0g 02Series collection / field watch would be different enough for 10pc ltd ed, otherwise it seems like they have offered every popular colour options.

Re: C9 Mk 1 Jumping Hour

The v first CW I noticed & still the best decorated dial among all CW jumping hours.

I thought roman numerals are much cooler than Arabic ones.

Re: Customer Service?

I have a feeling that CW grows quicker than anticipated & CS can't quite handle the communication for many yrs. Phone calls were answered rarely & responded randomly if answered. I would be lucky to receive 20% of emails I've send. Saying all that, they deliver the goods in good faith with a...

Re: Your C1 Bel Canto is now in production
