Questions - Chat with Co Founders - Bristol GTG / CW Event - 2nd November 2019

Post by Bahnstormer_vRS » Sun Oct 06, 2019 11:04 pm

Details for the Bristol GTG / CW Event & 'Chat with Co Founders' are posted here

Within the GTG, it is anticipated that we will have, as usual, a session for the 'Chat with Chris' which will give the opportunity for questions to be put to the three Co-Founders of CW; Mike France, Peter Ellis and Chris Ward.

It is planned for the Chat with Chris element of the GTG to be video'd and, as before, live streamed on YouTube.

Please post your questions for the "Chat with Chris" in this topic/thread, by end of the day Sunday 27th October.

If a question is posted that you would also like to ask, simply quote it and add +1 or +2 etc...

Whilst there will be the opportunity for questions to come from the floor i.e. to be put by those attending, and to be submitted via the YouTube stream, I intend to ask as many questions submitted by forum members in this topic, as time allows.


Finally, please limit this topic to questions only. No discussions please.

In the CWL website - 'My Account' section, the status of all my orders for the past 18 months remains as 'Processing' - given I have all but the most recent safely in hand, why is this ?

How about fixing this !

Lance,

I recall there was quite a lot of comment, after the London GTG, about poor sound quality; which I was surprised about as CW had a more sophisticated setup there compared to previous GTGs. Perhaps the acoustics of the room worked against them.

Whilst I am confident that CW are aware of the issue, I have nevertheless relayed your PLEA to them.

Another "plea" for sound quality. I've watched all of the GTGs via YouTube and in each case we've been able to hear the questions quite clearly but the answers have been very hard to hear. Poor Peter Ellis makes some good points but it's unlikely that anybody except him has been able to hear them. There have been improvements, for which the audio team has my sincerest thanks, but being able to hear the "Big Three" clearly still has a ways to go.
I do appreciate and enjoy the GTGs and would like to thank the team for making these such a success for the in-situ audience and we poor blighters who can't attend.

I agree. In all of my online dealings with other companies, CW is the only one with this issue!

And I don’t know why anyone felt the need to state “ Paid by Paypal? will remain as processing forever...!!!” Guy stated no discussion, it’s a valid question about an anomaly on the site.

The order status question should be raised, given they are 'upgrading' the website in 2020 - a perfect time to get the basics fixed.
Current collection incl Alpina, Breitling, Casio, Citizen, Eterna, Oris, Rado, Rolex, Seiko, Tag, Timex & Tudor.

As has been mentioned, please will you keep posts to a Question or a quote with +1 etc.

If questions get interspersed with discussion posts there is a risk that I will miss a question when sifting through prior to the GTG.

Superfluous discussion posts will be deleted.
