Re: good customer service

I'd agree with the above.

Whatever coating is applied to achieve a mock distressed finish, is clearly just a surface treatment, so another would most likely fail in the same way.

The canvass looks good on bronze...

Re: Bracelet/Strap codes?

Codes are released fairly frequently and are usually discounts upon spending a certain amount online. For a bracelet for your watch, finding a used one might be a better bet.

Re: CW hints at what's new in 2020

...oops.

There's a small vid as well, but it doesn't really reveal too much. Not that it matters, as I'm sure sales won't be affected, but it is rather unprofessional.

Re: CW hints at what's new in 2020

...and possibly in titanium?

Edit: Yep, I'm going for titanium day/date elites with co-ordinating straps.

Re: C60 GMT COSC

I recently bought a Trident Pro 600 which as you say i'snt COSC rated. I also splashed out on a Sandhurst which is COSC rated. The Trident gains about one or two seconds every couple of days, the Sandhurst loses about four seconds a day !!! Anyone explain that ? Yes, both watches are operating with...

60% off Bronze C60 just appeared. I wonder how succesful the Bronze C60s have been - always many of them available during sales time.....
Given how many have been in the sale, I'd say the fad for bronze is waning.

Re: Branding...again

There is a churn of board level "activity" going on (from Companies House filings) probably associated with the capital injection. Chris didn't have much of a say (his shareholding was small) so my (cynical from experience) guess is he'd had enough. Chris wasn’t a director of the holding company so...

Re: Almost there..

I have relatively skinny wrists too, but the C65 is a good fit for me. Perhaps you should try one out under the 60/60 guarantee?

Re: Jan sale

...the CW looks very nearly as nice..really, from a bargain hunter's perspective, I think it boils down to whether one would want to spend another $640.00 for the Oris..and I have the blue dial C65 Diver coming in a few days!! :) I think if you compare the CW C65 Auto to the Oris, you would get a b...

Re: eBay watches

Forgive me for I am new here but what happens to all the watches that were in the sale that are now on eBay for more than they were in the sale when they inevitably don’t sell and get returned in a months time? Do they then get put back on the CW site? Missed out on some nice peices which are now o...

No, there's a new piece at -50% -> https://www.christopherward.eu/s07-42ach1-s0kk0-vk
So NN at -60% it's not such a huge difference in price.
Hmm, not so sure. That's £130!

Re: Jan sale

At 30% off RP, nearly new should be just that, at 60%, I'd be surprised if it didn't show more obvious signs of use. For the minor faff involved, it would be worth resolving the issues yourself, if possible, particularly as you like the watch and it was such a good price. CW will probably sort this ...

Re: Trident C60 600 vs ?

Having had/still own Oris and CW watches, I wouldn't consider Oris to be objectively better than CW, they are more expensive, but that's partly because of a dealer network that needs supporting. Try to not let price sway your thinking, the online business model allows CW to be extremely competitive ...
