  1. Complaing certainly seemed to be the final straw from my experiences today. But it's seems I'm not the only one, if you check their trustpilot reviews for the last year or so.
  2. Yes, their prices tend to be good, but I've only ever ordered from them 4 times in 6 years, and at least two of those were less than £20, so I doubt they'll miss me, and going elsewhere isn't exactly going to break the bank. If you do use them, don't let them know you don't have a business, as that seems to rather p**s them off.
  3. I've been asked to close my account, as they have no wish to deal with me again !! Oddly, I'm happy to do so Problem is, it's only some gaskets at about £1.50, and it would only cost them a second class stamp to post new ones.
  4. Ordered some gaskets for my watch, and Cousins sent out the wrong ones. When contacted they refused to send out the right ones until my next order - which could be never. Told me I shouldn't be using them if I'm not a business, and they hide behind the fact that they sell to businesses and are thus not covered by consumer law. No checks from them (that I recall) as to whether I'm a business or not, and happy to take my money both now and in the past. Well, they are not the only show in town, so will go elsewhere in future. Experiences from others?
  5. The battery on my Certina DS Action has finally decided to die. Opened it up to get the battery number, but the seal now seems too big to go back in again - no idea why it would have stretched just opening the watch. Anyway, using a vernier gauge it seems to be 35mm diameter to the centre of the 'groove' that the seal sits in x 0.8mm thick. Can I just go ahead and order a new one at 35mm, or is there anything else I need to be aware of? Thanks in advance
  6. Hope it's all being sorted, seems so. Just be aware that paying with a credit card via Paypal doesn't give you any credit card protection, as there's a middle man (paypal) in the loop. Well that's how I understand it anyway. Stand to be corrected.
  7. Yes, in the details, easy to read, but that requires going into each in turn. On the overview page, in FireFox at least, almost impossible to read. Black text would be FAR better
  8. Not sure if i's my browser settings, or the site, but prices in the classified section are white on a very pale blue background, making them almost impossible to read.
  9. Happy for the post to be moved, and I would have created it there in the first place if my navigation skills had allowed. Was all I could do to get a post in any forum, let alone the right one. I see it's moved :), didn't realise as I just clicked on a "show latest reply"notification without going through menu
  10. Glad to see it's not just me, which I had guessed as all other sites are loaded no problem
  11. TWF site appears as a set of menus for me, even if I change browser - totally unusable. Anybody else seeing the same or is it just me for some reason?
  12. Sell the oven - which at the end of the day cooks food, and wasn't designed to tell the time, unlike a watch
  13. Don't usually post links, but since you ask https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-vintage-Rolex-1016-Explorer-booklet-brochure-1963/222818112815?_trkparms=pageci%3Ac5c79043-110c-11e8-9a20-74dbd1807af9|parentrq%3A9145b07c1610aadc35a49141fff7b085|iid%3A1&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236
  14. Now I know that anything Rolex related is over-priced expensive, but surely £800 for a single piece of folded card, AKA a Rolex brochure, (albeit from 1963) is just going one step too far, or have a totally missed the point of the Rolex phenomenon?
  15. I use https://transferwise.com/ For international bank payments - MUCH cheaper than via my bank. They basically take loads of transactions from one currency to another, and vice-versa, and then trade them all off against each other to avoid changing currencies, just move it locally to the right location. All adds up to a massive saving in fees. Takes a couple of days, but still not slow.
