Re: Are import duties still an issue?

For those saying I'm already getting a "discount" by not paying VAT: That is not true. VAT is taxes paid to YOUR government for public services that benefit you. I shouldn't have to pay that because I'm not being benefited by that in any way For those saying I'm already getting the voucher code dis...

Re: Another Elite 1000 (mk3) arrived!

Re: lume — I like to wear a dive watch to sleep in, so lume matters to me. On my Mk 3 pro, the lume definitely lasts all night, and I can make out the time without my glasses (despite my eyesight not being the best). This said, my Breitling Colt Chronograph is much brighter in lume, and equally lon...

Re: Another Elite 1000 (mk3) arrived!

Congrats on that beauty! Thanks for the great photos. Great to see owner photos and hear true evaluations. I too chose it for it's sportiness, among all the other strong attributes. Omega is utilizing the same color schemes with fitted colorful straps. I too compared the CW packaging to Apple Inc. G...

Re: C60 Trident Elite 1000 (mk3) - thoughts after a week

A few more pictures that I have posted in the the daily thread as well. Under water pic: https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190613/9dbde59c85e5066d5dbdc5202915134e.jpg Regarding the strap: I ordered the blue rubber strap from CW, I know that’s much more comfortable. Got it yesterday, the blue dies ...

Re: C60 Trident Elite 1000 (mk3) - thoughts after a week

Would love to see more pics and commentary on this watch! Where's everybody hiding? I assume a few of these made it into the wild by now? I'm actually waiting on one. Bummer about the strap. Thanks RD When did you order yours? I ordered one about 10 days after release, by which time the initial sto...

[/quote] They’re good watches for the money. You just better hope and pray you won’t need to return it to them for any reason.

Re: Another CS nightmare (still in progress)

Whoa! What's up with this watch forum anyway? Where's the fun section? I'm new to this space as I recently picked up my 1st CW in Bronze C60 Trident. I'm also awaiting the Elite 1000 Trident. I'm wondering if I should cancel my order? I am reading more and more complaints. I see few threads renewed ...

Re: Is this really customer service?

Yikes! I hate reading tales like this after seeing so many happy customers showing off their watches on various forums. After all these years I just bought my 1st Christopher Ward last week. The C60 Bronze Trident 43mm -- Well, I actually bought a 2nd and plonked down the cash for the Elite 1000 Ti ...

Re: C60 Trident Elite 1000 (mk3) - thoughts after a week

Agreed Tim. Also to confirm what Chris was suggesting above: I emailed them a couple of days ago asking about a titanium strap for the Mk3. They confirmed: We are currently in the processing of releasing a MK3 titanium bracelet, and we anticipate this to be in stock in the next 6-8 weeks. They also...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 Dial

I'd be more inclined to get right to Christopher Ward on this, though appreciate the information on this QC flaw on your particular watch. I assume you noticed this on vacation rather than at time of delivery. Regardless, stop wearing it to prevent any further wear, pack it up when you get home & co...

Re: Nearly New watches onsite

I went for the Bronze 43mm -- 1st Christopher Ward. Giddy-up! Thanks for the heads up, but I saw it coming and have been checking daily of late. I'd still like the Elite 1000 MK III, but watching and waiting -- Wonder if they will keep these in the line-up but maybe not COSC version? RD Was the bro...
