eBay watches

Post by Roger32 » Sat Jan 11, 2020 3:34 pm

Forgive me for I am new here but what happens to all the watches that were in the sale that are now on eBay for more than they were in the sale when they inevitably don’t sell and get returned in a months time?

Do they then get put back on the CW site?

Missed out on some nice peices which are now on eBay so was wondering...

Thanks

They will most likely appear in a future clearance section at some indeterminate date in the not too distant future. Of course you could wait out the 60 days and then put in a (not so) cheeky call to CW Towers....

As per H0rati0's response, I have found if CW happen to have an item at the time you make contact, they will try and help.
They have been looking out for a rare(ish) old model for me and if they happen to find one in the back of Chris's old desk drawer or gathering dust somewhere will contact me (I don't expect they will find one in my case).
Of course if they get 1000s of such requests it may be a different story 😊.

Currently I’m wearing one I bought in exactly that fashion. It is a limited edition that was sold out. I emailed and asked and a nearly new model was found. :thumbup:
Trying not to buy any more watches...

Ahh excellent sounds promising thanks! I have got to say I am really impressed with the level of customer service and help that they seem to offer having looked around on here for a while etc.

Wait people actually scour EBay looking for CW watches? Thought I was the only American that did that.

Ahh good sounds positive thank you, all of the things I have heard about CW Customer service and help etc are really reassuring. A pleasant change from the norm of customer service!

Apologies Walter another Brit here!! Bought my first CW from eBay second hand though obviously. It tends to be a bit of a blessing or in this case a curse..

Funny enough a MadJam 66(6?) was on insta commenting on human Christopher Ward moving on and how he’d seen it on the forum. So if him he’s either lurking for another go or is already amongst us and preparing to launch another trolling attack ](*,) ](*,) 8O

Well, our new friend joined on Thursday and has launched straight into how good CW service is? It's too obvious.

I am afraid I don’t know who or what madjam is haha all the things I have read on here in reviews and seen on YouTube reviews etc seem to sing CW’s praises however.

CW always had a deserved great reputation for Customer Service, especially in the early days, although there have been a few CS challenges and some QC issues in more recent times. MadJam was an old forum member who has rejoined under many many quises in the past to share his observations.

And perhaps that's where we should leave it for now, gentlemen.

Always remember that you can use the Report Post facility if you don't like something, as opposed to challenging another member openly on the Forum.

Thank you.
