Re: Are import duties still an issue?

Pity also that we can't see the post that you have linked to as the CWA is a 'Closed Group'. Guy I can't share entire posts from closed FB groups as per forum rules. Just provided the link for CWA members, including Mr. Ward and other CW staff. DHL doesn't seem the most professional transport compa...

Re: Are import duties still an issue?

Another DHL Customs fail for a new CW customer in the uSA who was asked to print out a form and supply all details and values of different watch parts. It makes it even more difficult when you don't have access to a printer. They also asked for his Social Security Number which is pretty strange and ...

Re: Are import duties still an issue?

I can't help you with what the exact duty charge will be, but CW has quietly (for the better I think) switched back to Royal Mail shipping for international deliveries. This should increase the likelihood of your watch arriving with no fees due, and reduce brokerage fees if you are assessed duties ...

Re: Can you remove the bezel on the tridents Mk3?

The warranty is on the movement only and removing the bezel won't void that. The warranty does not cover the case, bezel, crystal, bracelet and straps. Rotating bezels can be removed with a case or butter knife but but there is a risk of making permanent marks on the case. Titanium Grade 2 is not as...

Re: CWL of the day

On a 20mm nato.. I don’t mind the gap. Bond style...!

This 41mm case would have been better with 20mm lugs, in my honest opinion.

Re: Is this acceptable on a £1250 watch?

CW visited many watch shops in London for a day and checked out bezels on many luxury dive watches. They finally settled on the Rolex dive watch bezel action and sound being the best and they said they replicated that on the C60 Mk3. I don't own a Rolex but that bezel action in the video seems prett...

Re: CW C1 Moonglow

Order from the US website and it is $1,935. Order from the UK website without VAT and it is £1,412.50 = $1,790 so $145 difference. Still much more than I would ever spend on a Ward. This is more like a collectors/novelty watch than something you would wear every day. Christopher's name on the dial d...

Re: Don't Mention The War........

Knives are very dangerous things and should only be used by highly trained professionals. A government-issued license should be required. And we shouldn't be allowed to talk about them. I also propose to completely ban all pictures and mentions of tridents on this forum. This includes watch pictures...

Service cost and what is involved in a CW service

There have been some recent discussions on the CW forum and social media about the cost of servicing a watch and what is involved in a service. It appears many are quoted different prices so I figured may as well get this cleared up. As I couldn't find any information on the CW website, I sent an em...

Re: New C65 Trident Vintage Mk II

... Surprised at the price point though - more than the C65 diver. My assumption is that this is largely an increase for the forthcoming C65 quick release bracelet. With this being +£35 over the existing bracelet, which I’d guess will disappear in time. Leather strap: Mk1: £595 Mk2: £695 Bracelet: ...
