Re: The joy of unboxing a CW

That’s interesting...
I wonder why this isn’t more widely known? Is it a new thing?

Re: Model longevity and watch obsolescence?

Very interested and somewhat comforted to read this thread...
I share almost all of the views so articulately expressed above.

I had thought it was just me. 😎

Re: How durable is the titanium bracelet on the C60 Elite 1000?

I bought myself one of the titanium bracelets for my C60 Elite 1000, which came originally with one of the original Hybrid straps. I have found it to be an excellent bracelet, it has transformed my experience with this particular watch, (probably helped by my distaste for the hybrid strap), It is Ve...

Re: C60 Trident Dead on Arrival?

If it doesn't work, it's broken, therefore a full refund will be on the way. Why didn't you mention it was faulty and why would they reject the return? I opened the return before I even took it out. I had the warranty card for the serial, but that's about it. I wasn't planning on keeping it, so I f...

Re: Sale

Am I missing something or is the 'nearly new', x years old, mk1 c60 a bit steep. I know its COSC and some appeal in being an early CWL piece but.. No I don’t 5hink your missing anything.... I think that even though some of the nearly new stuff is probably new but very old stock it’s still pricey fo...

Re: CW Rubber Strap v CW Hybrid Strap

It’s true the CW returns /refund process is a really great way if you are not sure about something, so definitely worth a go. And do bear in mind the new hybrid is supposed to be much better than the one I have, but I struggle to put into words how disappointed I am with the one I have. It looks gre...

Re: CW Rubber Strap v CW Hybrid Strap

Hi Ian, Apologies if I am talking out of turn. I don’t have a CW rubber strap, so cannot comment on that. I do however have one of the first Hybrid straps, I got it with last years C60 Elite 1000 limited edition, I thought it matched and set of the watch really well, and still do, what I don’t like ...

Re: Daily specials to beat the sales peaks!

Couple of TMB special editions up at the moment, 30% off nearly new (in the clearance section). Daily specials doesn't seem to be working... Those two TMB,s have been there for many weeks.... and in previous “sales”, (or similar), either they aren’t attracting that much interest/attention or there ...

Re: Daily specials to beat the sales peaks!

I'm sure there is software out there that help people get these sales items. Similar to the automated ticket purchasing software that touts use on sites such as Ticketmaster. This sort of thing would have probably been cost prohibitive in the past, but it's relatively cheap to get someone on the As...

Re: Daily specials to beat the sales peaks!

So to the deluge of daily specials appearing on Ebay now there is £1 selling after a hiatus. How do the scalpers grab so many? The CW website was glacial to impossible as far as I could see. I don’t know how the scalpers doesn’t it either... But about the website speed, I am probably amongst the mo...

Congratulations on your successful purchase.
