Re: SH21 Serial Number and COSC mismatch

Just a thought. The watch is a chronometer and one would expect a COSC document to accompany it. One option might be to ask CW to write a letter stating that the wrong certificate was issued. It won't be the actual certificate, but it will at least prove provenance of the movement conforming to spec...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

I broke down and got the blue C3 Grand Tourer on mesh. I think it’s very attractive and I’ve been on a quartz kick lately. I love mesh on divers, so willing to give this a try. Seems like a great value at $285. Those are nice looking watches, and really good value with the mesh :thumbup: I also hav...

Maybe I should list mine on eBay as a prototype?
Most ebay sellers go for "Rare" ... often quite amusing to see how many 'rare' things there are in a list.
Don't knock it, it seems to work. Plenty of "rare" watches sold.

Re: Watch servicing

CW charge £150 for an automatic watch service. That's pretty good for an OEM service. They don't however, offer any case or bracelet reconditioning. To maintain a new watches warranty, you will need to have the watch serviced at the four year point, so the 60 month part of the warranty is misleading...

Re: CW January ‘21 Sale

Got my C60 Trident Pro “Beast” in yesterday. Four days to my door and I’m in the US. Bonus: no customs duties which surprised me but very happy if course. I’ve wanted this watch for a little more than a year and missed it in the last two sales. This time I got lucky and definitely not selling it. I...

Re: CW January 21 sale reboot

.... If it were not for the resellers, CW would have ta much longer wait to clear stock. Based solely on the number of people on the forum that state they've missed out on CW website sale purchases IMO CW wouldn't have to wait too much longer, if at all. Plus I wonder how many of the re-seller bulk...

I do sympathise when inmates miss out on something they wanted though.
I agree, it's very frustrating and has happened to me at every sale, but that's life, we can't always have what we want and these are, after all, just luxury items and not at all important in the grand scheme of things.

Re: CW January 21 sale reboot

Guys, some of you are overthinking this. CW have stock to move and have done so very quickly. The only concern that I can see that CW might have, is the dumping of "cheap" watches on a marketplace and this perhaps devaluing the brand image. And as for looking after their customers, who's more import...

I'd appreciate a heads up if the C65 SH21 (stainless case) rears its head again. :thumbup:
There’s an SH21 on the new listing......looks like the stainless to me
Thanks, but I was too late.

Re: CW January 21 sale reboot

Yep, but you didn't sell for profit....that is different Yep, I get the principle, but it's then establishing the reason for sale and how much it was sold on for, not to mention proving it. I can't see CW wanting to go down that route. Then if you took Bremonts blanket approach, it would have stopp...

Re: CW January 21 sale reboot

To anyone that is looking for a black C65 auto on a black strap, I'm about to cancel an order, as my other order is now processed and on its way. This one was a backup if the first fell through. Let me know if you want it and I'll keep it and put up an ad in the for sale section.
