Re: DHelL's new low and an unwelcome CW CS response

Further update - my Artem strap that had a status of cleared customs has a new status 12 hours later. “Arrived at customs” - wtf? How can it clear customs and then hours later be sent back to customs? It’s a freaking watch strap and well under the USD 800 limit for duties. I’m guessing that the pac...

Re: DHelL's new low and an unwelcome CW CS response

In my somewhat limited experience with DHL shipments coming into the US (Chicago area) from CW, only when a package gets selected for an ad hoc inspection by customs does it get forwarded to the DHL hub in Cincinnati.

Re: Fastest Finger on the Button

Noticed that on at least some Aquitaine listings the heading doesn't state "Nearly New" but the description explains the Nearly New designation. Since they are listed at 30% off which is the NN discount apparently they are NN even though not designated as such in the heading. I know that m...

Re: Where do you keep your daily watch?

Leather trays can be useful as a scratch free surface to keep your daily watch between wears.

Re: About sales on CW, first purchase

Welcome to the forum @GoesTo11. (Great username!) The summer sale usually starts the first week of July and is announced via email as well as on this forum and their Facebook groups. The answer to your second question is sometimes... They don't often make small changes in each production run but whe...

Re: C60 quartz developed a 4 second sweep

That's an End of Life indicator on some quartz movements... " When your watch's battery is approaching the end of its life, the seconds hand will tick once every four seconds instead of once per second. This feature conserves battery power and alerts you that it is time to change the battery. &...

Re: Monta Atlas

I'm stunned by the design detail and high level of finishing of Monta watches, and find their Noble particularly appealing. The only thing preventing me from purchasing one is its case size of 38.5mm which while suitable for many is just too small for my 8.5" wrist. If it was offered in a 41-42...

Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection Preview

Has anyone received any sort of confirmation of their email being received? I don't want to sound needy but being GMT+10 I'll be getting up at 0130 to watch this and don't really want it to be in vain. For similar events in the past I've never received any confirmation of receipt email, just the em...

Re: C65 Trident MKII in Summer 2022

Is there any further news or intel to be had on these? I'm eager to see these released in April, but hoping for some leaks (beyond Loupe) before then. The Drawing Board page (pg 12) from Loupe's issue 24 (spring 2022) indicates "the new C65 collection will be released in April". It's Apri...

Re: CW Forum Private Prototype and Archive Sale

Congrats to those that found something unique that they purchased, I gave up after waiting 2.5 hours from the expected launch time. Oh well... there's always another watch I'll want in time. All the best to those who bought in!
