Re: Ebay

On reflection I think an individual that pays over retail for a watch on ebay is more of an enthusiast than most.

Re: Ebay

Is it known for a fact that the watches on ebay have been bought in the recent sales? Or are people just presuming? Is it known that the ebay buyers are not watch enthusiasts? If you read the feedback left by the buyers for the sellers they are thrilled with their CWL purchases. Out of 150 CWL listi...

Re: good customer service

I would go for a new one.... I ordered a C65 Ombre recently, it's a fantastic watch but the strap is way past distressed and definitely into abused territory.

It looks nothing like the one in the website picture.

New one I say is your best option.

Re: Question for bronze watch owners...

I have several from various companies including 3 from CWL, the patination starts to develop almost over night and then after while, a few months it just stops. On the CWL website it says you can bring it back to new with a polishing from a Cape Cod cloth. I had to google what that was and they are ...

Re: Custom Duties on CW purchase

I purchased a CWL last week (not on the sale because CWL refuses to send me emails despite my attempts to be added to their email list) and it was shipped on Friday and arrived at DHL Vancouver on Saturday where it sat until Monday evening. It left last night and arrived in my city this morning and ...

Due to the continued success of the military line and CW's expansion into the American market, I predict an American military theme watch could be added to the lineup.
Here's a design for the US market.....

Re: Branding...again

I'm not so sure there's anything wrong with the CWL branding except for the fact that a very small number of people don't like it. I would say the numbers of watches sold annually speaks to the branding being accepted (by the majority). The whole time I have been on the forum people have been commen...

Re: Jan sale

Both my sale watches arrived today, great service and turnaround for m CW. I may keep the mk3 c7 Panda as a good daily option. The mk1 C7 chronometer Im unsure about, its classier than the mk3, the bracelet is very nice but I really struggle with the legibility, my eyes fault not the watch. If anyo...

Re: Jan sale

I think CWL stopped using Canada Post because they couldn't effectively track the parcel once in Canada and couldn't verify delivery from their end.

DHL are pirates.

Coupons/discount codes?

Is there anything current? I saw some in a thread a week or so ago but cannot find them now.

Thanks in advance.
