What are you trying to buy?

Just a cordovan strap and a watch box.
Oddly enough I tried to order a watch box few weeks ago and couldn’t proceed. However it occurred around the same time as the sale issues, so assumed it was related and didn’t proceed.

Try ordering just the strap only initially :problem:

Because of occasional difficulties placing orders, all my recent CW orders have been paid for using paypal. I find it quicker and easier than going through bank/credit card processes anyway, and speed is often important when dealing with sale items.

+1 ....me too
...and, just in case, having a registered CW account for address information (although, in fairness, this is not needed if using PayPal).

Very quick look at the blue/bronze hybrid I ordered and it seems to be the newer style (I have a v1 and it's much thicker), much like my new black/red hybrid :thumbup:
I got my 3 straps a few days ago and put the black hybrid on my gym/sports watch this morning. I think it must be the V1 as it seems fairly thick but I haven't got anything to compare it with.

It looks good on the watch but I'm not sure that it'll stay on it as it's apparent that it's there - wearing it so it's not loose means the edges dig in very slightly and the underneath leaves the pattern in my wrist. As I've worn it today and rolled it up tight to try to ease the stiffness I can't return it for a refund so if it doesn't get better I'll (try to) sell it cheaply or leave it in a drawer un-used. Fortunately the other 2 straps were soft leather.

Here's a picture I posted comparing a V1 and V2 strap. The only difference I could see is the profile around the lug-pin. It's much more rounded with the slimmer V2. download/file.php?id=20475

Thanks for posting that, I saw that when first posted but couldn't remember where it was.
Yes my black is a V1. I'm going to stick with it for a while to see what happens, it's currently like a new pair of stiff leather shoes.

This isn’t as impressive a stack as JasperCat’s stack, but I’m thrilled none the less!

First strap: black leather peccary leather purchased for my C65 AM GT LE. I was pleasantly surprised to find it lined with the red leather! It’s a perfect compliment to the red accents on the watch, and I’m impressed by how incredibly soft it is. I’ve added an Omega style deployant. If I decide to keep it on this strap, I’ll carefully cut off the stitched in keeper.

Second strap: a tan Tiber leather for my modded Seiko Sea Urchin. I thought I had purchased the darker brown. I guess not. The strap is quite substantial and rather thick. I love the vintage look on the Seiko and hope it will loosen up some with wear.

Overall, I’m incredibly pleased! I’m set for strap options for awhile now, I think.

Those look great! Nice targeted pickups for those watches.

I like how you emphasize you’re set for strap options...

My bracelet for my Dartmouth is arriving today.

On a separate strap note, I noticed that in the normal strap section that the dark brown vintage oak strap appears to be gone in 22mm sadly :(

How does that get classed as NN?

I ordered 3 leather straps. One peccary leather was clearly unworn - no fold marks or creases at all, and still had a 60/60 tag, but no other wrapping. The other two were cordovans and had very light crease marks on the inside, but pristine leather, and still with blue plastic on parts of the closure. Well worth it for saving £35 on each cordovan.

Congratulations Andrew! Being candid both straps look brilliant on your CW AM GT and Seiko !! The red lining was a must IMO and the brown on the Tiber strap is perfection....I would not have wanted it any darker IMO. Well purchased!

I recall the black peccary with red lining being used on the C7 rapides. I think it must be the same strap.

I've looked several times at c7 rapide chronographs on ebay without pulling the trigger. I really liked them, especially with that strap, but I have a number of chronographs, and my wife actually doesn't find the large numbers attractive. Anyway, here's the aforementioned strap in this article.
