Re: New CW owner confused

Well from the responses on this thread it appears it’s not all bad. I suppose it’s more people moaning rather than sharing their good experiences.

Re: New CW owner confused

I must say this forum is far friendlier than the Rolex and Omega forums. Some of the members seem to just want to contradict or troll you and for me has put me off the brand a little. Especially the Rolex fanboys, but they must have thick skins as I’ve had plenty of goes at them and they don’t seem ...

Re: Are import duties still an issue?

After some import duties from USA I said I wouldn’t buy from there again. I bought a watch off eBay for £700 only to find out later it was in Texas it didn’t say so in the listing and I didn’t ask I will in future. Long story short it is being held in the Royal Mail pending a payment of £159 duty, I...

If I'm honest it doesn't work for me. I do love the Rolex with it but the Trident doesn't have enough contrast with the dial. Maybe it'd look better in real life?
I agree with you. I also had a Tudor GMT and didn’t like that so flipped it.

New CW owner confused

I have had a CW for a few weeks purely because I like the looks of it. But after reading many posts on this forum it appears that the CW customer service is sub standard to say the least. If this is the case why do so many buy them?

I’ve also got a “real” one on a jubilee bracelet just like the brand new ones.

Is it just me?

I own 3xRolex 3xOmega 2xTudor 1xIWC 2xOris. But now I’ve taken to liking more budget watches. I like Oris, Christopher Ward and Lum-Tec. I seem to not want to wear my “posh” watches as much as my lower end. Is this felt by others? or is it just me? :oops:

Re: what led you to Christopher Ward?

I have not read every post on this thread but I would like to answer the original question. I didn’t set out to look for a new watch as I had 10 already, Rolex,Omega,Tudor and IWC. I was trawling through eBay when I came across CW I was surprisingly amazed at what I saw. I have now bought a C60 PVD ...

Re: Are import duties still an issue?

I’ve got a watch coming to the U.K. from the States by USPS. So far so good nobody has asked for any money yet but there’s still time I suppose.

Never Again

I have bought a couple of watches in the past from the States. Each one has cost me money at customs so I made a promise to myself never to buy from there again. At the moment I have a watch in customs and I’ve broken the promise to myself. I fancied the watch so much everything else went out of my ...

Re: Has anybody added a cyclops to a CW?

I don’t like cyclops for me it messes up the dial. Why do you need a date anyway? I take it you have a phone so if you’re really stuck for the date you can always check that.
