I heard the BBC programme on watchmaking a week or so ago in Bahrain in the Persian Gulf. This prompted me to investigate CW and the site. I'm glad I did, but I prevaricated too long and missed the C6 bargain in the July sale. Curses, foiled again! I'm prepared to wait a little though. As a newbie to nice watches I will bide my time. When I get a minute I'll photograph and post the few watches that I own. Nothing too special, but hope to own a Ward in the near future.

Likewise. I heard about CW a few weeks back on BBC radio too. I had been tempted to buy a Tag, but just felt that I would not be getting value.
I'm hoping to buy the C70, but it's a little on the steep site, so I am waiting for a discount.
I wonder whether CW will hold off discount vouchers in the near future, given that BBC gave them significant more recognition and traffic?

Welcome Expatcat and HH-Canada.

The BBC feature has brought lots of new people to the forum and, we are told, had a beneficial effect of sales at CWL. I didn't realise that it was being broadcast so widely. Good old BBC.

Enjoy your CWs when you get them.
