Worn mine 24/7 since I have had it. Very pleased overall, however as mentioned the lume seems to be poor, is this the same for all CW watches ?

Currently running 12-15 seconds fast per day, I may have a go at regulating !

I managed to get an IPK Bracelet this week for my Yellow C6 and I now see for myeself what some of you mean about the finish with the IPK. However it is only noticable if you turn the links so it does not really bother me for normal wear and at the price I guess I cannot expect miracles. In fact the IPK/Steel bracelet has made a big difference to the overall finish of my C6. With the leather strap it was too "casual" in my view but now it looks fine with a collar and tie and is a far more masculine timepiece.

One thing really puzzles me about the Forum LE though. I realise that it has "Limited Edition" written on the dial but I am amazed that it makes no reference on the dial to being an Automatic. I would have thought that was the major factor that makes the watch unique at least as far as a C6 goes. I am not aware of the watch having a clear back to display the movement either so this ommision does surprise me a little.

Surely the movement of the second hand gives away the automatic movement?

That's what I meant when I earlier complained about the quality of the IPK.
It's not very bad when you wear the watch, but it's not the quality as I expected from CW.

Are we still on for a video of the regulation process? I'd like to see it, please.
Daz,

We're talking about a video right? Hans did a picture sequence showing the steps of regulation. I'm sure you saw it.

I don't know if any LE's have already been sent back to CW for regulation, but if you guys would like to see a video of the process, that would be a small effort for me and I can set it up for this weekend...

How's your LE running and how's the quality?

Post by thewatcher » Mon Mar 31, 2008 9:09 pm

i sent mine back for regulation got it back a while ago it was done quite well it ran about 30 seconds slow in a week. but for some reason it had got dust or a scratch on the inside between face and glass so sent it back again. i also sent it back when it was regulated because the lume was not applied so well it got sorted and i was very happy with that. for the money once everything is sorted it will be good. :)

Glad it all finally got sorted out for. Bad luck I suppose. Tell us how you felt about the after sale service. Did you find it satisfactory?

to answer the after service question i emailed a couple of times got no reply so phoned spoke to wera and said i would return the watch to get the mall problems sorted was told to put a note in with box sent it off and did not hear for a couple of weeks so phoned them up and then within a couple of days i received the watch back so i would say reasonable after sales service.

My LE is running late - a few months late 8) But I'm sure it'll be fine once it arrives in my hot little hands!
