Re: Are CW Too Affordable?

The idea was how CW could charge higher prices. Going to the high street would be a way for them to do that. Quality wise they do stack up to other makes that are charging more. Giving the extra margin to the High Street won't help the business unless volume expands considerably, though no argument...

Re: Are CW Too Affordable?

CW margins do not work with High Street Jewellers and the logistics are totally different, but maybe a few strategic boutiques could work for expanding beyond watch people.

Re: Are CW Too Affordable?

It's going to be interesting to see the 2021 accounts which are just about due.

2020 loss 1.875M
2019 loss 368k

From Companies House filings.

I very much hope they do better, but it ain't easy.

Re: Are CW Too Affordable?

CW has continued to lose money over the years, so purely economically, yes their prices needs to rise though that has to be managed carefully. I believe we are seeing that evolution, not forgetting they have an investor now and the pressure is surely on to get into the black. We know they want to mo...

Re: Should I sell my stuck C60 600 Pro COSC SH21 Red Bezel 1 of 32

I just wanted to say my sincere appreciation of what you and everyone else offered in here that helped me to push through my situation. Very happy to help and to be a small part of you (and CW) getting the right result and most of all I do hope you have many years of enjoying your watch when it com...

Re: IWC service / repair / info

This may assist, indicative pricing by model in CHF. Note that a service carries a 24 month warranty.

Re: Dilemma

I would hazard that you will get a much better price if the watch is as it should be. Speaking personally, I nearly always buy SH and only go after top condition pieces, anything less (unless rare and especially desirable) is immediately ignored as not worth the trouble/cost so I strongly suspect yo...

Re: UPDATE: Should I sell my stuck C60 600 Pro COSC SH21 Red Bezel 1 of 32 - 60/60 Guarantee denied at 5th Year

Nik, Isn't the £350 / $500 cost for a Service that CW are saying needs to be done; for the warranty to be applicable (hotly being debated). Semantics, I know. Guy Sent from my XPERIA 5 III using Tapatalk Guy I think it all comes down to when is a guarantee not a guarantee? CW offered a five year mo...

Re: UPDATE: Should I sell my stuck C60 600 Pro COSC SH21 Red Bezel 1 of 32 - 60/60 Guarantee denied at 5th Year

I didn’t realise that NeWard was in the states. Me being me now starts to wonder whether CW would be acting like this with a UK owner - I’d bet they wouldn’t. There’s a very real possibility here that CW know that they hold the cards due to his/her location and it being more difficult for them to c...

Re: UPDATE: Should I sell my stuck C60 600 Pro COSC SH21 Red Bezel 1 of 32 - 60/60 Guarantee denied at 5th Year

CW have historically made it clear that the guarantee is transferable. They do not track owners but they know the date of sale. So should be no impediment there either. I see that as the vague part. Do they put terms on the transferability, like having the paperwork? Do other watch manufactures put...

Re: UPDATE: Should I sell my stuck C60 600 Pro COSC SH21 Red Bezel 1 of 32 - 60/60 Guarantee denied at 5th Year

This has been an interesting thread to follow. As I see it, there are three separate but related issues here: Should CW honor the full 5 year warranty despite the lack of servicing? Must the warranty be honored is the current owner is NOT the original purchaser and lacks any of the paperwork? What’...

Re: Watch brands that speak to you

If I had to pick a single brand (rather than individual watches) it would be JLC though I don't own one and never have - somewhat inexplicably since I have admired many of their models, though my no means all, over the years. A Reverso for dress and something from the Master range for daily wear wou...

Yet they will not upheld the original promises. I have emailed my situation to both of the three founders on two occasions: Mike France and Peter Ellis but nobody ever replied my inquiries. I have the head of CW customer service team to deny my request that they honor the 60/60 guarantee, I ask mys...
