Re: Curved Spring Bars

I've read that you can bend spring bars by pressing them over an appropriately sized spoon. Never tried it myself, so YMMV applies.

Re: C60 Concept

Not sure these would be pay at delivery, if they’re pre-orders… maybe for delivery in 4 months they would be, but more sure… But yes, I’m sure some have been bought for flipping… how much return they’d actually seen on these I have no idea :problem: I pre-ordered mine for delivery after Christmas a...

When does the Black Friday 15% code expire?
If I recall correctly from most of their sales it's likely to run through the weekend, but I humbly stand to be corrected by those in the know...

Re: Tribus Orders

Regarding the case finishing, the chronometer series TRI-01 - TRI-04 come in either steel or gunmetal finished cases. The MDS series has black finished cases. There have been comments that the gunmetal finish of the chronometers is lighter than most expected, somewhere between steel and typical gunm...

Re: CW half links World Tour report

£12 per half link?! They had been sending them out for free! That clearly wasn't a sustainable business model since in addition to production cost they were also covering shipping. Their current charge is extremely reasonable and can be considered a nominal fee compared to some other brands that ch...

Re: Tribus Orders

Strange The less expensive watch sold for more than the more expensive. I often think eBay produces some strange results approaching and just after Christmas. Perhaps a matter of taste and availability? I think the 01s sold out fastest on the site, and personally I think they’re amongst the best lo...

Re: Tribus Orders

Mine was ordered on the 15/11. I’ve had a reassuring email after posing the question. I see some more models are turning up on the site now (returns?) and they are suggesting that some that are out of stock will return in 2022. Their ‘My Dog Sighs’ watches in stock now going for £740! I personally ...

Talk to me Guy, I can't see any hour markers. Am I missing them and if not do you miss them for ease of telling time? Sent from my Pixel 6 Pro using Tapatalk There are light blue hour markers just inside the white ring, but they're not easy to see. You can see some of them on the following pic: htt...

Re: Tribus Orders

It was once stated that Tribus cases were made in the same factory as IWC Just to clarify... Christopher Ward himself made this declaration in some interviews when they were starting Tribus, but it was a bit ambiguous as to whether the cases were made by IWC or by a third party Swiss manufacturer t...

Re: Tribus Orders

When I emailed them on the 8th Nov I was told up to 2 weeks. I have sent them another email this morning. I can't believe they had that much stock / orders they couldn't fulfil within 2 weeks. We will see........ The fact the website claims they are Tribus Horologists, yet a number of the early pay...

Re: Tribus Orders

I’ve surrendered and ordered the TRI-04 in orange…fingers crossed I guess. A 14 day returns policy is a tad mean spirited compared to CW. Anyone anything on these Soprod movements? From what I've read this Soprod movement was designed by Seiko but built in Switzerland, and owners report its excelle...

Re: Tribus Orders

According to a post on Facebook (from a customer, not Tribus themselves) they're working on their backlog of sale orders and expect to have them shipped by the end of this week. There have also been several posts from buyers not willing to wait that were going to cancel orders so I believe you're co...

Re: Tribus Orders

Hasn't moved since last Friday. *Slightly* concerned. Phil, have you tried putting the UK tracking number in the USPS tracking system? When I have ordered watches from CW in the past, the UK shipping goes dead once it leaves Heathrow, but then I have been able to track it through USPS using the sam...
