Re: New CW

The first question for me would be: "Do you need/will you use a GMT?" If yes, answer obvious. If no, think again. Complications are nice, but for me there's little point in having them unless you intend to use them. Respectfully disagree there, I think the GMT hand brings a nice splash of colour, c...

Re: Too soon to tell?

FWIW, I sent the watch back on Tuesday. It was just a bit bigger than I wanted, so I’ve requested a straight exchange for a 40mm. Maybe it’s an age thing, but I just want a bit smaller. To me, 40mm is a more nearly classic size.

Re: Too soon to tell?

Your photo looks like the size is ok - but as AVO says only you can really decide on that. I feel that height is usually the biggest effect when wearing and whether 40 or 42mm diameter the height is little changed (.15mm to be pedantic) whereas the bigger diameter spreads the height better - IMHO. ...

Too soon to tell?

Ok, I’ve had my first C. Ward watch for exactly two days now. Not a review as such, but some first impressions. I cannot see any obvious or visible corner cutting in how the watch is built. Case work, bracelet, bezel, etc. all look really very well done. No complaints here. Sellita SW330? At 48 hour...

Re: New Watch Syndrome, or the Honeymoon Period

I’m doing that right now. My C60 GMT showed up last night around 6:30PM. Played with it a little bit, then had the bracelet sized by 8 PM. I sold all my other real watches, I have a Seiko SKX007 and a couple G-Shocks left.

Re: CWL of the day

My first C. Ward arrived last night. The Mk 3 dial and hand set sold it for me.

Re: Estimated delivery time to U.S. east coast?

I would stay on top of DHL, I was sent a web link to pay custom fees the night before delivery the next day. Yup, that’s just how it went for me. Paid the fees (98.22, eek!), and it was delivered yesterday evening. First impression, it’s amazing for the price. At about 14 hours in, I can’t even cal...

Re: Estimated delivery time to U.S. east coast?

Hi. New member here, long time member on a few other forums. Got a question for US buyers. I have a C60 Trident GMT on the way, DHL is saying delivery tomorrow. I’ve bought a couple other fairly expensive watches from overseas (ex. MM300 from Seiya), and not gotten hit with Customs charges on delive...
