    Oh Canada - and my CAF - and UPS

    So my CAF is in Canada right now. Which wouldn't be bad, except I'm in the US :evil: A UPS mix-up sent my package to Vancouver instead of Washington. So now it'll be sent next-day-air back to me. Except "next day" is Saturday...so it'll be Monday. In the meantime I'll just have to look at the awesome photos everyone else is posting - and wait for Monday to finally arrive. :roll:

    Re: Oh Canada - and my CAF - and UPS

    Actually the last tracking report had it marked "returning to sender." Which means it would have been a Germany, England, USA, Canada, England, USA route. That's a lot of miles! Fortunately I think I stopped that from happening, but I wouldn't be totally surprised if it somehow ends up back at Eddie's.

    Re: Oh Canada - and my CAF - and UPS

    So here's what "Brown" is doing for me. This is the latest tracking information (mis-information) from UPS. Keep in mind that I live in Seattle (Seattle metro area, actually) and that the watch already passed through here on it's way to BC. Plus, I'm on my second or third tracking number. I'm not sure what's going on there, but if this is the "tighest ship in the shipping business" Lord help us all!

    My wife's experience with them meant that her iPad went from china to Germany then for some reason ended up in Dubai then to the UK. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you !

    I'm not seeing anything after 19 April on tracking but it does report

    Your package has experienced an exception.

    Re: Oh Canada - and my CAF - and UPS

    I would say it's quite exceptional. They gave it a new tracking number, Eddie, which I had to call to get from them. That number has since changed and now it's on it's third tracking number. :roll: It's allegedly still on target to be delivered tomorrow...

    Re: Oh Canada - and my CAF - and UPS

    Picked up my watch from UPS at 9:00 pm last night (on the third trip down there that day). On top of all that, I got to pay them $24 (customs?) for the privilege of having to go get it myself four days after it should have been delivered to my house. Sheesh.
    I will say, however, it was worth the wait. Beautiful! It's definately going to get a ton of wrist time. :bounce: Another masterpiece, Eddie.

    Glad it has finally found you Ryan. Seems like the praise is pretty unanimous for the CAF which is nice to hear. At least you have one of the rarest watches in Canada now :)

    Kudos to Raysablade for best applied obscure fact.

    Fortunately I had a better experience with "Brown", my CAF shipped on the 30th and arrived at my home in Southern Cal. this morning the 3rd. Fast delivery of a great watch.

    Re: Oh Canada - and my CAF - and UPS

    Me too this time. No fault of ups, but in my area ups shipments go into Hamilton airport and I think there is a watch lover in Canada Customs. Every watch I've had go through Hamilton had been opened and inspected until the CAF came. This time it came through no hitches like it should. Needless to say I'm a happy camper about that!!! 8)

    Re: Oh Canada - and my CAF - and UPS

    Glad it finally arrived. While I like both of the drivers that usually are in my neighborhood, I can't say I like UPS much at all. I've had much better luck with Fedex (who deliver on Saturdays) and I have to believe some of the differences are due to one being unionised and the other not.
    Congrats on your CAF Ryan! I'm in the Tacoma area, but usually have WIS GTGs in Seattle (The Collins so far, but looking at another spot for the next one). Shoot me an email if either of you are interested and I'll add you to the distro list 8)

    All is well if ends well.

    I was watching the other day a security cam video how a UPD idiot is delivering a fragile laptop or a camcorder - it was terrifying. You must be happy with yours:)
