    The Situation in China

    Folks, I've been talking to a few of the dealers either by phone or via email and the situation in GZ and Shenzen is pretty dicey.
    Some of them have told me that they will not be returning to work on Monday as the situation is such that they are not prepared to risk the health of their employees. Most will still be checking emails as that can be done from the safety of home but having people attend the offices and/or go to the markets is just too risky. At any rate I believe a lot of the markets will also not be opening as scheduled.

    In other words, if you have stuff ordered you are just going to have to be patient, you getting your watch is not worth someone catching this thing and taking it home to their children and elderly. Lives are worth more than our trinkets getting here on time and I had best not hear about anyone complaining to the dealers about delays. It may well be out of their hands anyway as the factories are also putting health first, are yet to reopen and may not do so for some time.

    Also one other thing, you WILL NOT catch this virus by ordering stuff from China, the virus can not survive for long outside a host. Please read here: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-...ail-from-china and here: https://www.who.int/emergencies/dise...c/myth-busters


    Lets all just wish the very best for our dealers and hope they all come thru this unscathed and OK, they will be as keen as you to resume normal business I'm sure, they need to make a living but not at the expense of their health and possibly the lives of loved ones. Thank you for your anticipated patience and understanding during this emergency.

      Thanks for clarifying the situation and help clear some anxiety amongst members. Wishing for good health and safety of the entire community in China including our TDs, forwarders, carriers and all their families. Watches are only objects but family and their health/safety comes first!!

          Tbh I thought about it and was worried myself but now that I'm assured it can't be contracted through packages I feel a little relieved. Praying for all those Involved and their families of those affected in any way . Hopefully will be all good.

                    Thanks for the info, I put an order in with puretime last weekend and I’m happy to wait as long as it takes, I know Angus won’t let us down and will get our watches to us as soon as it’s safe & possible to do so.

                          Thx for the Sticky at the Top, this will help a lot and maybe reduce unnecessary emails/questions.

                          Lets hope all this thing will be survived soon
