C1 GMPR update.
My one and only CW will be coming home soon!
Got a despatch back to customer email today and called them.
It’s back from Switzerland and is in QC before being despatched to me early next week.
Scott couldn’t tell me what was fixed (wasn’t self-winding) but said the work done would be on paperwork sent to me.
Looking forward to seeing it after 8 weeks.

@Tigerchris.
Yes looking forward to it. Only had 8 weeks of wear so far so see how it goes for a while first before commiting, next one hopefully a C65 trident handwound or auto.

@Guy
Sadly the 15% is too soon. As above I’ll wait to see how the repair turns out before buying again.
On 10% Guy? :lol:

Cheers boys. :thumbup:

Maybe take advantage of the 15% and keep in the box until you have seen how the C1 goes. Keep or return on 60/60 depending on how the C1 performs? Just an idea :thumbup:

I doubt there is ever a time when a discount is not available! I bet even if you found that tiny window when things were full price they would still honour a code or voucher.

Finally got my C1 5-Day Chrono last Friday, everything looks sorted, knock on wood it will be a few years until next visit to CWL towers.

The watch is just great, very happy to have it back.

Great news Billy. Hope we both don’t have to send it back again. :thumbup:

Well, it wasn’t despatched this week as advised.
Left it till today to call them. Woman said she’d look into it and call me back later. Never did.
Called again late this afternoon but no one answered so left a message.
Hope they call back going into week 9.
My excitement has eroded somewhat as I expected it to be back by now.
Will it go to my self imposed 10 week deadline?
We’ll see. :thumbup:
