Just received a bit of news from Chris.....

The brochure links at the beginning of this thread are not the complete catalog. Consider them a preview (selection) They are meant to drive traffic to the new website.

The C15RKK (black dial -rose gold) is still in the production plan. (This makes me happy!)

Confirming Wera's info....the new website is scheduled to go up Thursday after testing the site Wednesday nite (UK time I presume).

The USA website is planned to be a mirror site in US dollars linked directly to the UK site. Shipping is still planned from the UK.

What great news, Kip, C15RKK still on; fantastic :) . It means I'll be getting an order in after all, just when I thought I'd dipped out.

Yes you will. Don't forget to add the code. If you order today call or email and mention the code for the savings. Hopefully tomorrow the new site will be up and complete.

Well yes and no. Only we know its late and CW is still taking orders from us anyway and that is key. Anyway he does not have the new stock yet anyway so he can take orders but cannot service them until the end of the month.

But yes, generally its not very good and I am sure Chris is frustrated. But his low prices mean keeping costs down (so he cannot afford me to manage his projects ;) Although I am sure we could find a fair exchange. )
