Re: Anyone fancy a Coke?

I like it, good deep shade of red and I much prefer the red GMT hand to the standard orange.

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 Dial Marks (Update)

It seems to me, and apologies if I've got the wrong end of the stick or I'm barking up the wrong tree, BUT whilst everybody, who has responded, is jumping up and down stating 'its wrong' 'QC is rubbish' etc. Has anyone stopped and looked at the detail, perhaps comparing it with your own C60 Mk3 (if...

Re: Sales Corner Descriptions

Given the spate of QC issues with new watches I propose a change to used watch categories in terms of Condition: Describing a watch 'as new' could now mean that it has a multitude of faults and defects. So, for a watch with no cosmetic issues and functioning within specification, how about 'better ...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 Dial Marks (Update)

It’s not just CS that is failing. It’s QC too. CW have their work cut out. Every time I think of booking a slot at Fawlty Towers to buy my second CW, then read a new post like this, I forget about it and do something else. :lol: Likewise. When the MK3 GMT was released I intended booking an appointm...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 Dial Marks (Update)

So what are the tolerances on imperfections? If 90% of the hand is perfect and 10% is scuffed/scratched/poorly polished it's within tolerances? Whose tolerances? Certainly wouldn't be within mine so I'd send it back and not bother again after getting 2 watches that should have been failed at QC stage.

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

Still dreaming of this. omega-seamaster-diver-300m-omega-co-axial-master-chronometer-42-mm-21030422006001-l.png I have one. In fact I'm wearing it now. It is as lovely as it looks. The only downside is that it is much harder to read the date than this photo would suggest. But you only have to look ...

Re: CW Customer Service - Time to give Up

As some of you are aware, I'm struggling to get to the bottom of a repair of my C60 Chrono. In the last few days, correspondence has increased after email after email chasing them up. The latest being , one minute I get an email stating my watch is QC, and I should expect the return of the item tow...

Re: CW Customer Service - Time to give Up

Funnily enough they're very quick to reply to their trust pilot reviews. https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.christopherward.co.uk?languages=en&stars=1 Wow there's some bad reviews and issues amongst that lot and they go back several months, pretty much with the same pattern of faults, no communic...

Trident Mk3 with white dial

Just seen the new white dialled Trident Mk3 on the CW website.

Somehow to me the name logo at 9 seems less obvious in black - weird.

It's only in 42mm (at present?) Not sure if that bodes well for the hope of more colours in the 40mm size?

Re: Bad experience with Christopher ward watch and it's customer services

A mistake would have been nice but Vallen is sticking to £150 for a quartz service and battery change says the prices went up 6months ago. Give it another 6 months and it will be cheaper to replace a watch than have it serviced. It has got to be a mistake! I have my Sister-in-law's C7 COSC IRR in w...

In real life, real size, I hardly noticed it.
I was the opposite. The didn't like it in images and hated it in real life. Couldn't see anything else BUT the unbalanced layout and gap at 12. Maybe it's just me.
It's not just you, same as me and some others I'm aware of.
