Re: New watch Wednesday

Finally got myself a Grand Seiko. I've wanted a spring drive for some time now and finally decided on which one to get today. The finishing on the hands and indices is ridiculous and I'm enjoying watching that sweep! Only downside is the lack of tick, which I probably enjoy more than I should 🤣. An...

Think there's a way of telling whether it's new or nearly new based on what letter the SKU starts with

Re: Anyone ever had QC issues with Christopher ward or any other brand?

I haven't personally but my friend bought a lovely Omega AT on a leather strap. On the buckle the Omega branding rubbed off after barely any wear and it had to be sent back to be replaced. Took months to resolve!

Re: 2 straps but no watch

Managed to get somewhere with customer service. Seemed to suggest they've raised with DPD and are sending me another (maybe the one you returned, not sure)

Apparently it'll be here tomorrow. Hopefully!

Re: 2 straps but no watch

Watches are shipped in a large wooden watch box, about 10 inches long, 4 inches wide and 3 inches tall. weighing just under a kilo. The box is sealed with a tear off strip, so if it had been interfered with the seal would not be intact. Straps ship in a much smaller package. Did you get a large wat...

Re: 2 straps but no watch

Nope, no outer box. Just 2 smaller boxes containing the straps. Must admit, do find it bizarre the bracelet would be shipped separately to the watch 🤷

Hopefully a call at 9am will shed some light on the matter

Re: 2 straps but no watch

How prescient of AVO to start another thread on the benefits of proper shops with a tale of an online purchase gone wrong! Sounds like a call to CW should be the next step. Yep I've emailed but will follow up with a call. I only opened it tonight as only got back from work at 7 - all that excitemen...

Well I took the plunge in the sale and went for the green Aquitaine. Was very pleased to get notification from DPD that my order was to be delivered today. Sadly...

Re: Bracelet resizing?

I've done my own CW bracelet resizing with some inexpensive tools bought from ebay - pin pushers and such like and taken great satisfaction in doing it. myself. I am not normally good at such tasks! Good question about getting CW to do it. I assume the spare links are sent as well. Good job on doin...
