This is quite a step for CW! Congrats to you Kip for making it happen. How far from NY City is Boston? The wife has always wanted to visit NY..

How very exciting, Kip! Congratulations to all concerned – I am positive it will be a great success. :D

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Congrats, Kip.

Who else in USA knows as much about CWL and has that many of their watches? :D

Anyway, I would assume that this is good news for customers and potential customers in USA (and Canada), particularly those who are on the East coast.

Would all watch purchases still be shipped out of the UK, though?

Congratulations Kip - great news for the US buyers and CWL.

As others have said - who could possibly be a better ambassador for CW watches that you.

Dude, I'd fly to Boston in a HEARTBEAT for a GTG!!!! I've got a great friend up there that I've been taunting with my watches!

One question. Can the other "Doctors" give me my lithium and Quaaludes?

About 3 1/2 hours.

For now, everything remains the same for all website orders. The USA showroom will be cash and carry only for USA appointments.

If they are not forum meds, you are on your own.

As to a GTG...once up and running I will see what I can put together. :D

Wow!

It is a testament to how much change there was in February that I didn't even notice that there was a change in ownership!

So excited about the new opening and while not convenient from Denver... not quite as big of a jump as London! HERE HERE!

Really happy for you Kip since this seems to be where your heart is. Well done! Very exciting indeed!

Congrats! Always wanted to visit Boston! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Congratulations on your new job, but shouldn't you stand down altogether from the forum?
