Re: How to Prevent Desk Diving Scratches

This may not work for those who are using a laptop unless it's a laptop where the keyboard is on the very bottom and the trackpad is on the right. My Razer Blade 15 laptop has the lower left color missing from my desk diving or laptop diving i guess... lol

Re: C60 Abyss SH21 is 30 ATM or 60ATM?

Thanks, found it. Old version and not the light catcher case. I have one of those in 38mm and it's not comfortable for me but love the new light catcher cases, those are great.

Re: Custom Duties on CW purchase

Shame the lympstone bracelet doesn't fit the C65, or you could just swap them around. That's an answer going forward maybe. Can't do it even if it was the same size and curved end shape as it's a PVD gun metal. I love their gun metal color though and it was what attracted me to the Lympstone but th...

Re: CW stopping quartz watch development

This has been an interesting thread to follow. I’ll say this, when I got my first mechanical watch, I became pretty dismissive of quartz. Probably in the same way a neophyte vinyl collector is of CDs or streaming music. That dismissal of quartz was born of an uninformed arrogance. I didn’t consider...

Re: Custom Duties on CW purchase

Pipe dream but it would be nice if CW could separate the watch head and the strap for valuation purposes. Paying an additional customs duty on purchases over $800 adds a major decision factor when purchasing a CW. If sold and shipped separate, I would be more than willing to pay for shipping on the...

Re: C60 Abyss SH21 is 30 ATM or 60ATM?

I don't have any of the Abyss watches but would love one. That being said, aren't "mistakes" worth more on the resale market as the supply runs out? I've seen toys sell for hundreds if not thousands more than their retail cost of a few dollars because of the mistakes like a color swap. :D ...

Re: New limited edition releases

I have to echo some of the above comments about the design of 1 VEV and 2 VEV. They are the nicest motorsport range designs to have come from CW. I've never been a fan of the motorsport range even though I do like motorsport. I generally find the links to specific cars and races to be tenuous at be...

Mine OOTB

I wish it came in PVD flavor... Love that entire line but 42 is too big for my puny wrists. Also got 100/150 so not a bad number... 8)

Re: New limited edition releases

Wait... people actually use the chronographs functions? Yep. A few times a week usually. Going out walking, timing stuff in the kitchen, a few other things. Useful piece of kit. Walking and running I get but wouldn't countdown timers be more useful in the kitchen? I tried using bezels to time my ru...

Re: New limited edition releases

Regarding the 2VEV, what can a person do with 1/10 seconds, seconds, and hours, with no minutes? Am I missing something? Wait... people actually use the chronographs functions? :lol: I'll be the first person to admit I never use it... occasionally when I'm bored and I want to see the hands move... ...

Re: Custom Duties on CW purchase

Just checking in and as from other's past experiences including mine, it appears DHL is the only one asking for duties when FedEx isn't. At least not in the U.S.

Re: Introducing The NEW C60 Sapphire Black

I have the original blue one and I love it. The new black one doesn't do anything for me. If it was a PVD case/bracelet then I'd probably get it. I have the Lympstone and love the color but at 42mm, it's a tad too big for my wrist which is one reason I wear the Sapphire more than my Lympstone.

Re: Not a Fan of DHL

I'm in the US also and I've actually had the opposite happen to me with regards to delivery dates. They initially tell me one day but I've received packages usually 1 day earlier. However, my C60 sapphire is currently stuck cuz they are asking for a watch details breakdown now while my C60 Lympstone...

Re: Custom Duties on CW purchase

Hi all, I know this is an old thread but I bumped into the same issue. DHL is asking for a watch/clock details worksheet breakdown. I called them and told them to check the documents w/ the package but they insisted they log a ticket and someone will call me back. At the same time I emailed CW askin...
