Re: Selling on Ebay

Some tips. If selling, make sure the description is explicit and that the pictures are clear. Offer free returns, as this will enable you to deduct some of the cost when refunding. Always use a tracked delivery service. If getting an item back under any circumstances, video the unwrapping of the goo...

Re: Modifying Your Watches

There may be a loophole when it comes to a bezel colour change - as long as you are after an alternative standard colour. It has already been established on here that CW do not keep records of watch serial numbers and therefore would have no idea what colour bezel your watch started life with. Ther...

I wouldn't let it put you off. If you like it, it's still cheap.

Re: C8 Flyer Mark 1 in recent CWL site Clearance Sale

If it was new, 50% off retail, nearly new, perhaps 60% or a bit more off retail.

Re: Trident gaining 10 to 12 seconds....

Thanks all, I have been monitoring it over longer periods and noted that it does seem to be better when placed crown up, rather than face up. Think that my next watch will be a COSC one though for that better accuracy - although do like a couple of the CW range with the orange bezels, and although ...

Re: Clearance Returns

To qualify for the 60/60 policy, I believe the watch still has to be as new and if returned as such, would be resold as new.

Ironically, the nearly new price is almost always a lesser discount than the usual brand new half price sale watches.

Re: Christopher Ward Watch Praise

For all the talk about quick release and micro adjustment bracelets CW still haven’t got around to implementing screwed links. What quality brand today still perseveres with pin and collar ](*,) Not sure I agree entirely, as once the bracelet is sized, it's fit and forget. The connection type becom...

Re: Christopher Ward Watch Praise

Anecdote alert! I know a few watch appreciators/collectors and almost all compare the build quality to Breitling, amongst others. That is not to say that they would take the CW over the more expensive watch, but that is not really the point. It's all about personal taste and to some extent, the kudo...

Either way the 60/60 warranty would no longer be honoured.

As the warranty is for movement only, a bezel swap should not impact the warranty in any way.

Re: Spare Part Help?

It is unlikely that you will find such technical details here on this forum. However, if you want to know how to service various Sellita and ETA movements and wish to know which parts are required, both manufacturers offer free technical data for such things. The movements are unmodified as far as I...

Re: Trident/C60 Bezel question

Caution! I have been down this route with 38mm autos and quartz. I am much wiser for it now, but it wasn't a painless experience. Be very careful to measure all aspects of the bezels down to the nearest tenth of a mm. Small differences matter. If the sizes are not exactly right you might find, for e...

Re: Is the C65 Trident being phased out?

Probably just the hand wound models.
