Re: That super compressor

I decided prior to the sale that I wanted a super compressor. I live in the US so it seems like they processed my order later than others. Didn’t matter however as long as it showed up. It arrived today and this was one of the few CW watches I purchased that I didn’t need it to grow on me. The watc...

Re: The joy of unboxing a CW

Wow, what a great thing to do!!! :thumbup: :clap: I had no idea they did this and I've been a fan of CW for years ...........or more likely I've read this at some point and forgotten it! :lol: They should probably mention this more. -Sure its not going to make someone buy a watch that they weren't g...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

My order status (100246*** Ordered: 06/01/2021) changed to dispatched this morning and I've received the tracking email also. :D :thumbup: ....sadly the link to the tracking site doesn't work though, so the excitement and anticipation continues! :lol: :lol: :lol: Seriously though, CW must be very bu...

Re: Broken Ceramic C1000 Typhoon

So sorry to hear of the mishap with your C1000 Typhoon, that's a real shame :( I have the C1000 Cockpit edition and its a lovely watch, so I feel your pain. If you are not able to get a replacement case from CW, (and that is a real shame), I think the chances of finding a correct CW C1000 replacemen...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

fwiw, my orders that have been shipped started 100246***. My order showing being prepared is a fairly high 100247*** Likewise, my order is 1002476**, so they must have a load of orders to get through, especially given current circumstances :thumbup: again fwiw, I have an order number starting 10024...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

. . .. If you paid full price for these and now see them cleared out at 40% off, that may be disappointing though. A valid point Frank, except, I believe that you have missed comments by Mark (@albionphoto) from a couple of days ago. Prior to the sale going live, CW wrote/emailed to all those who h...

Re: Forum Dialogue: My watch experience and learnings so far....

Excellent post! I agree wholeheartedly with #2 through #10. :thumbup: #1 I disagree with - I've spent a large amount of money on watches, cars and beer over the years......the rest of my money I've wasted! :lol: Seriously though..... setting an initial budget and a goal(s) up front is not a bad idea...

Re: UK Lockdown causing delays at CW towers

Agreed, the UK wide lockdown should have come sooner for sure, the consequences were inevitable... :-( As for the heads up - thanks Kip, welcome and useful to advise that the normal exceptionally fast service will be slower (just in case it wasn't obvious). - people get used to (and spoilt) by such ...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

Well by some luck I managed to bag a NN C60 Trident GMT 40mm black dial today - one I had been watching for a while and had zero luck with the previous sales (aka feeding time at the piranha tank! :lol: ) on the 3 models I was looking at last year, so I can totally understand the frustration when yo...

Re: My first CW watch has arrived!!!!

Very nice watch Morgan - your real world pics make that colour combo very appealing, far more so than the stock pictures. The side view shows off the 'light catcher' case very nicely, and it's good to see the engraving as I've never seen how CW do it before now, so thanks for sharing and a nice pers...

Re: 15% off- what we're really waiting for!

Very nice Lawrence :-D And nice arty lighting shot too! I ordered a C65 Super Compressor at the weekend - black dial, orange leather - finally gave in and couldn't resist any more. - I was thinking its unlikely to be in a bigger discounted sale any time soon, or if it is the chances of me bagging on...

Re: C65 Super Compressor Timing Accuracy

I have just ordered a C65 Super Compressor at the weekend, so hopefully I will be able to report back soon. - when it arrives I'll stick it on the Time Grapher in the different positions, to see how it fares straight out of the box, so to speak. .....If someone reminds me - (I WILL forget :lol: ), I...

Re: The way I went for the big half cent-ury

Great story and great watch! Congrats on the milestone and indeed on the beautiful watch acquisition. Wear it in good health, it's a lovely piece, made even nicer due to the connection with what is a truly iconic aircraft! The Spitfire is beautiful with an amazing soundtrack that gets me every time!...
