    mine has now made it to Auckland. funny enough, it tracked as expected all the way to NZ, it landed this morning and the first text i received was from DHL NZ informing me of a delay in delivery but it was scheduled for wednesday so i think it will be on time. with any luck i'll be posting pics early in the week. the Guinand is off to the same man who can next week for a similar overhaul and a bit of refinishing.

    To anyone else waiting for international deliveries via the postal services, they are moving, but just very slowly... I received this padded envelope from Germany yesterday, containing watch straps currently on my wrist as I type. Posted in Dortmund, Germany, on 24th April, so 18 business days to arrive in Bangkok. Normally, something like this would make the trip in around 8 working days by Airmail. Not entirely sure whether it came Surface all the way, or SAL.






    The parcel from Russia, sent a full month earlier, is still not progressing. I'm guessing delivery will happen when it happens.

    Me 3... waiting 6 weeks from the US. Given up on my UK shipment (not watch related) but won’t even post a claim as I figure it will turn up in a couple of months in any case. Probably need to tie some mail bags into seats on a passenger plane.

    Not sure if this would help you feel better, DW, but at least DHL has their own planes. The rest of the snail-mail crew aren't so fortunate, as most global airmail travel on commercial flights, and most of these are currently grounded. This package of mine was posted in Chistopol, Tatarstan, Russia on 24th March, and now, more than a month a half, the rotor inside is swinging back and forth, somewhere.





    Last update 30th March. The postal services are advising that, due to the scarcity of flights, parcels are being carried by surface mail.
