I still think that the limited edition SH21 C60 COSC on a black hybrid strap looks like a fantastic watch at a great price. Even though I’ve already got one (on brown leather), at 50% off I’d be tempted to buy a second. :silent:

This one? 13.7mm height.

I’m very tempted by this one too, but the lack of description etc is setting off my warning bells for some reason.

By the way! I didn’t have any problems yesterday accessing sales site. I got in every time I went to have a look. Same this morning, no problems.
Problem solved, it’s gone.

:lol:
It wasn't as thick as I seemed to remember/think and IMO probably 1 of the more balanced dials.

Hey everyone. Perhaps not summer sale related, but does anyone know if there are any active discount codes? I'll be buying off of the US site if that makes a difference. Cheers.

Dont think there are any codes available ATM. Probably be another one at the end of the summer.

I've bit the bullet and bought the C7 COSC LE in the sale. Been debating over it since it's been released 2 yrs ago. Always ended up buying something else instead and put it on the back burner. Looking forward to getting it finally.

I'll have to source the blue/orange striped high density webbing strap for it, doesn't seem to be on the website anymore unfortunately. Goes a lot better with it than the black strap it's arriving on I reckon.

The wife will be amused when it arrives next week after the C1 small seconds arrived last week lol

Another order screw up! I think that's me done with these guys for the foreseeable future.
Too many second chances and every time I've ordered something in 2019 something has gone wrong.

Was offered 15% off something else to compensate!
Current collection incl Alpina, Breitling, Bulova, Casio, Citizen, Eterna, Oris, Rado, Raymond Weil, Rolex, Seiko, Tag, Timex, Tudor & Victorinox.

Oh FFS. Sorry to hear.
I'm going to CW Towers next week to pick up a C65 Trident, at least it'll cut out the on-line order processing part.
Saying that I'm worried stiff that if I need to send it back for any reason CS and QC will screw up again.

It's their second chance with me. God willing I wont need a reason to send it back in. If there is, I'll just go there in person and demand a refund. Been stung once. Not again.

Just looking back at my orders for this year:

January - missing documentation, including another customers receipt with the watch
January - mistake on the website price, order cancelled by CW
March - incorrect manual arrived for Trident SH21 - took a fortnight to resolve
March - poorly made Trident Ombre received and returned
July - purchased a watch and straps in the sale, straps sent, watch was missed off the order
July - purchased another bronze, but was incorrectly advertised/described on the website and CW appear to have failed to post out

I'll stay on the forum, but Mike, Chris & Peter your service is nothing short of abysmal and you have lost a customer.

It's purely a Clearance now but I've just missed out for the 3rd time trying to buy the blue dialled Trident Mk2, each time getting to the checkout only to be told it's out of stock.

Expletive!

I wouldn't fret too much, they've just advertised the watch that only this morning they told me they didn't have!
A total shambles.

Yes, I emailed customer services straight away, replying to the order confirmation. No response as of almost 24 hours later...
Finally got a reply at 23:20 last night, so the hours are being put in.

However, it was a request for images of the strap I received. Like they make any difference. I guess I now wait another three days for the next step.
It gets better.

Another reply after hours on Friday to inform me a returns pack is being sent out.

It's just arrived to my work address. Addressed to the wrong person. My former colleague is a past customer and just IM'd me asking me to find out what it is he's expected to return. ](*,)
The culmination of this is an email today stating that they have no C11 bracelets in stock and I have been refunded. Not even as much as an apology.

And the C11 bracelet is still listed in the clearance section.
Rich.

They slipped a few on the SS band into the NN 50% off sale category.
