Re: Clearance Returns

Are these watches really "..having been used as press and photography samples..."? The number that get sold and the frequency of these sales leads me to believe that is a disingenuous description. Most of them have to be returned watches, right?

Re: Clearance Returns

It was a 38mm for sure. I saw it too and nearly did exactly what Hairy did, but resisted. There was also a black 38mm on strap too.

Re: C65 Anthropocene Limited Edition

I am a little surprised 300 of these have not sold out yet.

Re: Delivery timescales

Mine is finally due to arrive this afternoon and is out for delivery. Beating a dead horse here I know, but 10/28 delivery for an in-stock order placed 10/11 is hard to understand.

Re: Staring into the C60 Abyss

I guess it's kind of cool looking. Hey at least you can see the seconds hand well. :)

Re: Delivery timescales

I've received some good news on my end. I received my despatch notice about an hour ago and it's apparently being shipped with next day delivery. Hooray!

Re: Delivery timescales

I called yesterday. The order was tracked down and I was told it was delayed. Yes, I know that, you told me that before, I still haven't received a despatch notice, and that's why I am calling... Was assured it would be made a priority, whatever that means, and would be shipped as soon as possible. ...

Re: Delivery timescales

I contacted them again yesterday, and have received no response. As we head towards the end of business day 8 and no status or shipping, I am increasingly aggravated and fed up. I'll be calling in a couple of hours if I don't hear anything by 4pm London time.

Re: Delivery timescales

I emailed them Friday, a week after my NN order, and received a message back yesterday that there was a "delay in despatch" and that it would be investigated. For a company whose sole sales presence is online and had been in business selling on line as long as Christopher Ward have, a week plus dela...

Re: Delivery timescales

I am not sure. I know someone who received the Sandhurst this week, so maybe that was first batch and they are waiting on a 2nd??

Re: Delivery timescales

Exactly. Email them to check on status. In my case, I emailed Scott who was the CW Logistic Manager, now resigned and Kyran replaces him. He updated the status of my order. [update]: After two weeks in custom, my watch C65 SH21 finally cleared for delivery and picked up at DHL centre last Tuesday. ...

Due to the military line pre-orders coming in and having to be shipped, I am guessing these NN purchases from last week won't be in-hand until November.
So I was joking of course, but am curious, has anyone that ordered from the nearly new sale on Friday received a dispatch notice yet?

Re: Delivery timescales

I asked the same Q - to be raised in the next CWL open session - the cognescenti on here suggest it only happens with PayPal purchases - but I'm not convinced ... Out of interest, I’ve just logged into my account and looked at my orders page. It does seem that the Paypal theory is correct, certainl...
