Re: What Car do you drive??

2004 Toyota MR2 MOT'd today, hardtop removed, cleaned and back on the road for the first time since last June, kept off road during lockdown and the winter months. Looking to catch up for lost time and add a few more miles to the 35k currently on the clock during this summer. IMG_20210604_142042_2....

Re: New limited edition releases

Well I returned my GT 1 VEV, unworn with all the protective stickers on watch and bracelet clasp intact, due to the lack of accuracy compared to what was originally advertised and I have just received an email offering me 70% refund of the purchase price as the watch is not in pristine condition? T...

Re: New limited edition releases

Good luck on getting it sorted and certainly stick to pursuing the full refund. It is unfortunate but it seems to be the norm these days to have to argue to get what should come at the first time of asking. Even if it was worn there would be justification for a refund as what they had for sale is n...

Re: New limited edition releases

I bought 2 AM GT 1 VEV's. I have been monitoring them both before being made aware of any of this. The first one I bought was laser accurate so I decided to buy the second one due to the accuracy of the first as an everyday wear and keep the first in pristine condition. The second one I was disapoi...

I am still assembling information and awaiting more answers. I will provide all details when completed. Unfortunately it is taking a bit longer than anticipated. I should be complete by mid next week.
Thanks Kip, much appreciated.

Re: Nearly New Items for Sale again (25Mar2021)

Back on topic :wink: :wink: It looks like, if you didn't partake of the Nearly New watches on offer yesterday or today, up to this afternoon, you've had your lot; as the 'Nearly New' page has gone from CW's website. Oh well; hopefully my Bumble Beast will be dispatched early next week. :) :) Guy Ty...

Re: New limited edition releases

Have they sold out or what they tactically removed to avoid the discount code? Most likely sold out, as the T&Cs for the current 15% off excluded 'Special Editions' i.e. the C65 AM VEVs. Guy Sent from my Xperia 5 using Tapatalk C65 AM 1 VEV showing back in stock on bracelet & strap. Just ba...

I can't remember what the current ones are, but hopefully someone will add them.

Re: A poor man’s Speedmaster Moonwatch

Isn't the Bulova Lunar Pilot a more representative 'poor man's Speedmaster Moonwatch'? Bulova-and-Omega1.jpg As discussed in Watchgecko's Battle of the Moonwatches . At least it has the credentials of the original version having been on an Apollo Mission. Guy I've got one of these and I love it. It...
