  1. Return instructions as provided by CW: Ensure the watch is sent well packaged in a box, preferably the original packaging and not an envelope. Inside the box, place a copy of your invoice and any email correspondence, or a note explaining the reason for sending it to us. Please be sure to add your full name, return address and a contact telephone number. UK We recommend using one of our prepaid Royal Mail return bags. These can be handed in to a local post office where a receipt with tracking number will be given in return. The service is Royal Mail Special Delivery and is fully trackable. Non UK For international returns we recommend returning your watch through your national postal service. Please ensure this is a trackable service and that you do not make any mention of the word ‘return’ on the outside of the package, simply stating the contents on any customs declaration, eg ‘wristwatch’. If the contents of your return package are over £1500 GBP please contact returns@christopherward.co.uk for advice on any customs declaration. Download: CW Return Instructions.PDF
  2. Here are some screen prints of watches that were in the July Clearance event. Prices are in US $. There may have been a few more as these screen prints were taken around noon Eastern Standard Time. I think the sale started at around 9:00am EST. Most of these were gone pretty quickly and the site was slow at the time.
  3. For those who missed out on the previous renditions of our popular C60 Trident Day Date COSC series, it may be time to take the dive with this new 250-piece limited edition chronometer. Powered by a Swiss-made ETA 2836 movement, and bearing an exciting blue, orange and black colour scheme, the C60 Trident Acan COSC Limited Edition dares to be different. Description Following the success of the Trident Day Date COSC releases before it, this 250-piece limited edition continues to blend modern dive watch looks with the technicality of its Swiss-made chronometer movement - although this time it's decorated in an eye-catching triumvirate of blue, orange and black. If you pull your eyes away from the Acan's glossy zirconia ceramic bezel, a matte blue dial offers a bold foundation upon which a dashing of colour and texture has been applied. Both our customary Trident-shaped counterbalance and printed five minute markers are present in orange, while the applied indexes and window framing the dial's day and date wheels have been tastefully polished. As part of the Trident family, legibility and reliability are guaranteed. Its indexes and hands are deep-filled with SuperLumiNova® SLN T C1 for excellent luminosity, while its marine-grade stainless steel case and sapphire crystal ensures the Acan will continue to perform down to depths of 600m. With a chronometer-certified ETA 2836 movement complete with anti-shock system inside, the C60 Trident Acan COSC Limited Edition's dynamic appearance and robust build quality will cause waves just about anywhere. Movement Using the ubiquitous ETA 2824 as its basis, the 2836-2 COSC adds a day wheel mechanism to complement its date function. Just as importantly, each 2836-2 COSC calibre has been certified by the independent Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, making it about as accurate as a mechanical movement can be. To achieve 'chronometer' status, the movement must be accurate to within at least -4/+6 seconds per day in different positions and temperatures. That only six per cent of all Swiss movements are COSC-certified tells you how special this movement is.

    Christopher Ward C7 Rapide Day Date COSC

    When you think about it, the essence of motorsport is very simple: coming first, whatever the cost. But let’s be honest: the best drivers to uncork champagne from the top of the podium are the ones who did so with style; the ones who ignored radio orders to let somebody overtake; in other words, the ones who dared to be different. The C7 Rapide Day Date COSC shares that exact same philosophy. With its matte black case and dial, its design is a reaction to the brightly coloured motorsport watches atypical of the industry. Instead, it’s a stealthy supercar of a watch, with the aerodynamic curve of its lugs highlighted against a racing stripe-inspired red aluminium band. Speedometer-inspired second hand and the first ten minutes of its outer track are finished in the same colour, providing distinctive contrast whilst also being – there’s no other word for it – cool. Like any Constructor’s team challenging for the Championship, precision and power sit at the heart of Formula 1. That’s why the ETA 2836 movement inside the Day Date is chronometer-certified, placing it within the top 6% of Swiss watches for accuracy. And for those wild weekends after a podium place finish in Monaco, its day date complication will help you to reacclimatise when you wake up on an unfamiliar-looking yacht. Beautiful inside and out, the C7 Rapide Day Date is the dark horse of our motorsport collection. And like many sought-after classic sports cars, its limited edition status (only 100 have been made) means you’re the owner of something truly special. Features Swiss made Limited edition of 100 pieces 25 jewel self-winding chronometer movement Hour, minute, central seconds, day date function Black DLC coated 316L stainless steel and red aluminium four-piece case Black anodised aluminium bezel with 5 minute markers Anti-reflective flat sapphire crystal SuperLuminova® indexes Day date window with black disc Screw-in crown Deep-stamped screw-down backplate with unique engraved serial number Technical Diameter: 42mm Height: 11.15mm Weight: 71g Calibre: ETA 2836 COSC Case: DLC coated steel and aluminium Water Resistance: 10 ATM (100 metres) Vibrations: 28,800 per hour (4 Hz) Timing Tolerance: -4/+6 seconds per day Lug to lug: 48.2mm Strap: 22mm

    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!
