The usual 8-10 week timeframe was expected. I inquired about warranty and they responded the repairs would be guaranteed for 1 year. So far so good. :thumbup:

Thanks, at this point I am thinking the title of the thread may have been a little harsh. :lol: I was mistaken in my initial post. I have actually had the watch for almost 4 1/2 years not 2 1/2. How time flies. Does anyone know when the SH21 was first released?

SH21 was announced July 2014.

Did CW offer a diagnosis of actual problem? Curious minds would like to know......

^^^^I am curious as well and want to know exactly what failed. I had the impression that the initial inspection consisted of confirmation of sale and "Yep it's wound, and yep, it's not running. Guessing it won't actually be opened and inspected until it gets to Switzerland and is ready to be repaired. I will press for actualitys as time goes on.

I'm with you. I would have very much wanted to get to the bottom of what happened to mine, if DHL had not removed that possibility completely!
