They're just trolls, ignore them. They have nothing of value to lend other than throw insults, again. :yawn:

Madjam, eh??? Why am I a troll? Someone else puts a quote of a few words of my post underneath an (unrelated) quote of a few words by you and suddenly I'm a troll? When have I ever thrown an insult at someone on this forum?

Not aimed at you.
As you quoted me in your reply to suggest 'they' were trolls, that's how I read it. Dunno who you were aiming it at then. Meh, whatever.

Nothing to do with this thread but this just makes me laugh!

But seriously if the thread offends you or you think the op is trolling just move on and ignore.

There is way too much negativity these days.

Meanwhile back at the ranch thread...

I have limited experience of NN, so can only speak as I have found. In both cases the watches appeared to be in absolutely mint and flawless condition. Had they not been to my satisfaction I had the option to return them. Win/win.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

It's not a bad question, if I'm honest. Wouldn't mind knowing if possible.

Looks like I'm going to have to find a new local...

I'd be very interested in a definitive answer myself, but I don't think we will get one.
Imagine that CW say: "yes returned watches under 60:60 are sold as NN". Why would you then not order a new lovely watch, return it, repeat the same thing even a couple of times, to then snag said watch in a NN sale?
With a definitive confirmation they open the door to socipathic egotistic behaviour as has been described above with the bar.

I tried on a rose gold Aqua Terra at the Omega boutique.

Perhaps I should pop back in and ask to buy it with 30% discount because it is not new any more...

What if the watch you tried had been taken home and tried for 60 days before you got it? Would you still pay full whack?

I have no idea as to what CW do. It is up to them. I assume that they remain legal, so I am fine with that.
