I should like to add my thanks and congratulations to Kip and all those involved in creating this new archive. As a recent convert to CW watches I shall look forward to finding out about the CWL history!

What a fantastic resource, just had a quick look at that's going to be really useful.

It sounds like it is only been possible due to Kip's dedication to the brand over the years, collating all the model information as CW evolved. Well done also to Richard and the rest of the guys for their hard work pulling this together :clap:

Good job from all involved. It’s a nice clean design that on first impression looks easy to use and hopefully, also simple to maintain and update.

Just been looking at the Knack platform. Looks very interesting, with all sorts of interesting application templates.

Is this new CW Archive a stand-alone application, and if so, who’s paying the monthly hosting fee, a minimum of $39 per month, CW?

Being a suspicious sort of person I could see how this platform could potentially be used by CW for all sorts of other customer facing and internal CRM type applications.

Just saying... 8)

A massive improvement over the old version. A ton of really useful information especially on discontinued models, which is nearly impossible to find without hrs of searching through online forums and review sites.

A job well done by all involved

I've already spent a few hours using this amazing tool to look up the CW watch I currently own, ones I have had and ones that I'm interested in for possible future purchase!

Brilliant resource chaps - good effort! :clap:

wow that's really good, well done. I particularly find the historical pricing useful on models no longer in production.
