    Watch repair by Christopher Ward

    I can understand some delays because of our borders but the way your watch was shipped back to you is inexcusable. CW needs to invest in watch service pods for repairs and warranty work. You are right when you say there packaging attempt was unprofessional. I had my Breitling serviced in another part of Canada and it was returned in a service module in a small box, very efficient and I am sure less costly than shipping another large watch box. The Breitling took 6 weeks in country, so I guess 3 months across the pond sounds almost reasonable. Glad you got it back.........great looking watch. Cheers, Mike.

    Watch repair by Christopher Ward

    The watch was back in my possession on July 9 and the repair was made under warranty. The repair sheet showed 'crown head replaced' and watch kept for observation for 5 days. The good news is winding of the watch feels like new again. The time it took, communication and packaging is something that could be improved though, especially for an internet-only company. April 19: Watch shipped from USA April 24: Arrived in UK May 11: Delivery to CW after customs clearance June 16: Received an order confirmation email. i assume this is when they started the repair. It was a bit confusing though because there was no mention this was for the repair. June 30: Received a dispatch email with order tracking number. Similar order email format, even though it wasn't really an order. July 9: Delivered at my office I sent in just the watch head wrapped in microfiber cloth and then in a box with lots of bubble wrap. This is how it was returned: It just doesn't seem the best way to protect and ship a 100g watch head in a 650g watch box that I will probably just throw out. And it doesn't look very professional. They added some bubble wrap between the top of the cushion and case lid but the watch head could still slide around. I am glad the watch is repaired but it just took a long time and the process and communication from a customer point of view could be improved upon. Just some honest feedback that may be helpful to CW and not wanting to sound like a complainer. So.... It took almost 3 months from shipping it out to receiving it back. Just one of the downsides of an overseas internet-only watch company but it is what it is.

    Watch repair by Christopher Ward

    Update May 10: With the 5-8 weeks repair schedule, it was probably going to take 2-3 months before I will receive my watch back. Mine is only a small issue of a slipping crown which hopefully is a small repair. Oh well, fortunately I have a few other watches in the collection. At least it is not missing. I sent another email to CW yesterday (no response yet) and noticed an update on the Parcelfore tracking site. May 10 - Delivery scheduled May 11 - Delivered Looks like things were moving again!
  12. I sent in my C60 Vintage for a small repair from the US on April 19. It was shipped with Priority Mail International and should take about 7-10 days. I returned watches to CW before and they usually get delivered in about a week. I sent an email to CW and they replied with the following info: Is this slow process for custom clearance common? Other shipments with watches to the UK usually go through customs quickly. Wouldn't there be some kind of exception for watches that will not be imported and exported again? Who needs to pay those charges? It's a bit frustrating for it to take almost 3 weeks so far and nothing happening. This is tracking info from Parcelforce.

    Design suggestions for CW watches

    If you don't want to pay more than full price and wait 8 months for the FB LE , you could buy a blue/blue and a white/black C60, swap out the bezels and sell the blue/black one.. FB LE on strap: £720 (US$ 800 excl VAT) 2 x £560 (after voucher code) = £1120 (US$ 1250 excl VAT) Even if you want to pay the same price as the FB LE for this modified white/black (that's all that CW does anyways), you only have to sell the blue/black for £440 / US$450 and you probably can sell it for more. Similar color scheme as the blue/black Aquis. You wouldn't have the red seconds hand and twin flags but that's only a plus for me. The red hand makes it look a bit cheap and the blue/white looks better with a polished seconds hand, in my sincerest opinion. And you don't have to wait for 8 months.
  16. There already is a Facebook group about CW watches but there are no rules there can only be one CW group on FB. To bring some variety, I started a new group called Christopher Ward Aficionados (CWA). It's a closed group so you have join to see the content and post yourself. The goal is to have mostly content about CW watches and the company. Sorry, no food pictures, aftershave collections, share what you had for dinner or whatever else is not about watches. So the content should be a lot more focused and interesting for us CW Aficionados. Posts about other watches and brands are perfectly fine but would be nice when they relate to CW watches or the company. Aficionado: a person who likes, knows about, and appreciates a usually fervently pursued interest or activity Come jun the fun! https://www.facebook.com/groups/222274301693951/

    Thanks guys. It's fun to play around with the designs. Unfortunately they will just remain wishful thinking as we don't have any influence on their design process. Welcome to Horology.World! 👍

    Design suggestions for CW watches

    I have always liked your designs, Frank and I admire your ability to work in PS so creatively and seamlessly. Your design work looks flawless. As I have said before, I wish CW would have used your ideas ( Adventurer with 3,6,9,12 Roman numerals ) for the C65. Cheers, Mike.
