Nope, I get error 503.
Scratch that, all working with cookies cleared out.

404 page eg. https://www.christopherward.com/okfokfewokfeo is missing footer info and whether it's intentional or not links to https://www.christopherward.com/home and not https://www.christopherward.com/
Main site logo also links to /home

Any idea if they will be adding a Nearly New section or has that been discontinued?
Same question, my daily check of the Clearance page is suffering since I cant find it and the old link doesn't work.

My guess is that it's been disabled for a while whilst the new site settles in. Makes sense to me that they'll avoid too much additional stress on the system whilst they test it and iron out bugs (if that's what they are doing)

This looks a bit sad.

Fantastic it's been updated! It is a lot more responsive!
A few points...

Not sure this debug tool should be visible to all users:

It's a shame the 404 page doesn't show Maidenhead!
CW2.PNG
This Articles link on the products page goes to an error page... Not really sure what it's meant for either:

(As shown by Albionphoto just above this post - while I was posting this!)


Also a bit of a shame there are no profiles of any of the people behind it! It'd be nice to finally see a photo of Declan for example.

Also, it's a shame/odd the login page isn't at christopherward.com, but instead at
https://staging-eu01-christopherward.de ... ross/login

It throws all my password login programs out of kilter (a minor inconvenience, admittedly, but still a little annoying)

This doesn’t look like the final polished article... Lots of errors and dead ends you can get stuck down.

Account password handling/reset is broken (at least on my iPad).

The configuration options on the watch pages are not particularly intuitive. Take the C60 as an example; you get on the RH side a list on choices: size, colour and strap. These are listed in that order top to bottom. Logically therefore you should be able to select your size first, then colour etc. This doesn’t work like that, the preselected colour, which is the second option, limits what you can choose for size which is the option above.

One of the promised changes I believe was for a complete overhaul of the strap section. Well nothing much has changed. Still the same descriptions and a couple of basic pictures. Fundamental information like taper etc is still missing. However, there are lots of filters for straps including mechanism: I’m ok with quick release and pin, but could someone explain what B1, B2, L1, L2, etc. mechanisms are and why I should care?

Shiny modern look but possibly only about 6/10 for functionality at present.

Yes, the password reset function hasn't worked for me all morning so I can't actually get into my account at the moment. I've done the forgot password thing a few times and no joy.

I've had six 'reset your password' links and haven't been able to get in. Similarly providing order number, e-mail and postcode, to check order status doesn't work either. Pretty poor.

I like the redesign, very responsive. Had to reset my password and the Scot in me already misses the “Nearly New” section.
