    Default Another CWC delivery to Herefordshire ?

    Like many others on here, I keep an eye on the 'bay to see what CWC's are about and what they are fetching.
    In the past few months there have been more than ten SBS models offered for auction that are all low issue numbers and 2017 dated.

    Although all are "new" "unworn" or "worn once" none have had a Silvermans warranty card. Some have been loose,
    Some in a tin.
    One seller has sold at least six in the last few months...
    "unwanted gift"
    "From my own collection"
    "Bought at a car boot sale"...

    ...guess where he lives?!

    A "Silvermans" SBS was on eBay recently with a warranty card dated, iirc, April 2017. I don't remember the issue number, but the year was 2016.

    So, if Johnnie Civilian is being given 2016 watches up to April this year.
    Where are these 2017 watches all coming from I wonder.

    okay, I can see where you are coming from now John; I have just done the maths!

    two IDs; the same seller; at least ten CWC SBS sold; several other SF watches sold, etc..

    Herefordshire, so SAS or SRR issue with 0555/ ?

    Any coming out of Poole ?

    Maybe just more contract overruns as it seems to early for them to be coming out of the MoD supply chain in any quantity.

    My, my..how quickly things fall off the back of the lorry these days if that is the case.. I'm sure Richard would be able to check out those numbers and where they went.. It's too bad that the C prefix was dropped and would make ID'ing these more recent runs easier..

    this is the one shown on the CWC website and also on Silvermans -




    both sites state that a 20mm black strap is supplied as standard.

    the CWC instagram site states that the military issued watches are supplied with grey straps.

    It was. But to be fair they've all been good prices In comparison to rrp.
    I wonder if we can call them "issued" tho❓
