Re: Is it good to be square.

There's always a C20 Lido or C15 Henley from the discontinued CW range that fit the bill.

Re: C65 Sandstorm Chronometers

I was looking forward to this until someone mentioned Swatch. Since then the entire Compressor range has been mentally tarred with that brand image and I can't escape that. Thankfully it being only 38mm, too small for me, is the more logical reason for swerving this LE.

Re: (Nearly) NEW C65 LE SH21 with pics

It's a great watch, mine is #002, I'm just surprised that it hasn't sold out yet. I wanted a blue faced CW and I nearly bought a Dartmouth but now I've got this I definately made the best choice. Lucky, for me, a fellow forum and CWE member sold it to me at NN price which made the decision even bett...

That strap =D>
Wonder if it will be available separately?
It's available but only as 20mm I'd love a 22mm version for my C65 Trident SH21

Re: Christopher Ward Merchandising

Maybe the interest here, mine included, might create so sort of reaction. I mean Elliot Brown raised a lot of money with their charity Rememberance Day t-shirts. So even if it's not entirely 'commercial' some charity could benefit. Wearing a Christopher Ward t-shirt whilst I regularly pass the new T...

Customer Service : Credit where credit's due

I recently had two issues for Christopher Ward Customer Service (CWCS) to sort. Firstly my C1 PR had a screw come loose inside the case causing the rotor to bang against it risking internal damage if it broke the screw, and an incorrect sized bracelet supplied for my 22mm sized C60 Mk2 Trident. Here...

Re: C65 AM GT Limited Edition back in stock

They must have run out of bracelets or are being VERY upset that C65 AM GT LE on a bracelet with voucher is £500 GBP yet the same case on the leather strap is £495 GBP, no voucher allowed because it's under the voucher threshold!! A loophole of £5 between leather and the bracelet option has been goo...

Re: What would you want the Dress Apex or Aviation Apex to look like?

That means there will be a large number of 2020 new models in the CW range by the end of the year. Despite the Management change and the Covid effect it's still a HUGE task that they will have completed.

Re: Newsletter Discount Incentive

The database recognises any existing email address to avoid duplication. I guess if you've already used the discount, I had, it's attached to your account number so changing email address should also be recognised against your account number. There are enough vouchers and most members know or are ma...

Re: What would you want the Dress Apex or Aviation Apex to look like?

Do they mean four different looks or four different strap/bracelet combinations for one case?

Re: Watch Return Experience

Returns to CW HQ for repairs will be affected by a procedure change. I returned a watch on Friday and have received this as part of their update "Please note we are currently quarantining all incoming items for 2 working days for health and safety reasons but will certainly be in touch once it has b...

Re: C20 Lido bracelet

Be aware that there are two bracelets for it. The original fits the lugs more closely and sits much better on the wrist, but unfortunately has no fine adjustment. The later one, doesn’t fit the case or look as good as the original, but has micro-adjustment on the clasp. As far as I can guess, you c...

I'd put in a request in the CW, Want To Buy thread here: viewforum.php?f=43
Otherwise, I'd keep an eye out on eBay.
Thanks for the info, but being new here I haven't enough posts to access all areas of the Forum.

Re: CW strap greater selection menu option?

If all watches are matched to their straps/bracelets for every individual purchase there wouldn't be much difference. If watches are only received at HQ with the existing options fitted, then additional work would be needed changing over. It would depend on the working practices at CW. If every wat...
