Missed out on this and now the link doesn't work :(
Do you know if they are going to re-issue the page?
Just a load of guesswork going on. My guess is that they’ll fix the issue and rerun the sale. They will still have a bunch on NN straps to sell on.
:thumbup:
...guess it's just a case of reloading the page every few minutes until something appears 8-[
Just watched a YouTube video with Mr France spruking the British watch making industry, maybe he should start with the British IT industry.
Oris, CW, Tag and a few others.

Afternoon all.
Vallen has confirmed today what has been stated elsewhere...tech glitch but in the 15 minutes that it ran properly they’ll sold all sale stock!

I suspected as much. I had a feeling the "glitch" was related to stock selling out but not updating the site properly... never mind :?

At least I don't feel quite as bad now having bought 5 straps at full price on Wednesday :lol:

Thanks for the update, but that really doesn't seem feasible. I had an item in my basket, in my account and hitting refresh button quite regularly!

I never made it to seeing any stock. When I clicked on the link, I got a page saying the search was “null,” or something like that. I wasn’t sure if it was a technical glitch, a UK only sale maybe, or that they sold out super quick. I guess it was a little of options 1 & 3! That’s too bad, as I’m always up for picking up a strap. And CW straps on sale are tremendous value.

If it's any consolation, same here!

There were quite a lot on there... quite a few that haven't been seen for a while on the main site (e.g. the brown canvas webbing). They must have sold very quickly indeed :shock:

To quote Vallen : ‘ when they were first launched on the website, there was a technical glitch where transactions couldn't be completed, this was quickly resolved and it appears all items sold out within 15 minutes.’ I’m sure the guys who’ve dealt with Vallen will confirm, she is very straight talking and reliable. Chris himself holds/held her in very high esteem. I hope this explains the snag?

Surprised that there was so much demand for 30% off CW watch straps. Unlike the watches for which 30% off is a great deal.

I like the CW straps I have received over the last month or two of owning a CW, but they are not that special. And 30% off only takes the cheapest strap down to £42.

For example, I can buy a very nice Di Modell jumbo for £15. Ok it doesn’t have quick release, but it is a very nice leather strap all the same. And not that much inferior quality to a CW strap.

Thanks - no doubt on what you were told, but every item of sale stock disappeared in a flash and I was keeping a close eye. Never mind, anyway, no big deal

Vallen is without doubt a huge asset to CW, really excellent customer service.
