Anyone else use EU Chrono sites to find EU vendors?
What’s the web address for that variant ?

Might be just the particular watch I was looking for but I found a seller who was slightly cheaper with free delivery than the least expensive on C-UK who was charging for delivery.

OK who here is making enquiries to the Taoiseach's department about that Millgaus that's been lying in the safe for two years?

The tone of the request sounds very like a certain friend of the forum doesn't it?

The watch collector said: “As it is now over a year since your instructions were sought, I request that I be informed if a decision on the matter has been made, what that decision is, and if arrangements have been put in place for the disposal of the watch if it is to be disposed of in accordance with the reported wishes of the Ceann Comhairle.

“If a decision has not been made, can you please advise when such a decision will be made, and who has custody of the watch now. I am a collector of watches and wish to be informed of any sale, auction, or disposal by any other means of the said watch.”

Still no indication of it being processed, Irish side.

A whole 7 days it's been here now.
I get a feeling there’s a glitch in their system, I ordered a few different items from different sellers on it 2 weeks ago and they all arrived in Ireland 3 days later, not impossible but free postage from China ? Unlikely. Hasn’t been any movement on mine either.

Aye, there may well be.

Mine says accepted by airline on 23/02, and arrived here on 01/03, which is not unusual by any means.

But as of the post today, there is still nowt, nor any update from the AliExpress tracking to indicate package processed.

Very frustrating.
