Well spotted sir. All I can see are the C63’s, C65’s and just the C60 specials Abyss and Elite. Revamp time?

In the past, the removal of a watch from general sale in June has hinted at the possibility that it could appear in the July Sale.

No concrete information about this has filtered down to me, but it may well be that they are concentrating the GMT efforts on the C63 Sealander with the new movement. Slightly surprising but possible. I guess we shall know soon enough.

If they do appear in the sale (whenever that is – no idea) and you want one, you’ll probably need to get up early to beat the scalpers or you will be paying full whack on eBay.

Purely speculation, but could it be that they're going to be upgraded with the new GMT movement?

So, being my first year buying Christopher Ward, what sale are you referring to. In the past, how good has the sale been. I am looking to get the C60 Elite 1000, should I wait? I also want the C63 Elite but I doubt that will go on sale.

I’m pretty new here, too, but I have experienced the annual January sale only a few months ago. Thirty percent off on some models was possible. Christopher Ward may also offer “nearly new” - those watches that get returned under their 60/60 guarantee - as part of the sale. A very small quantity of retired models went for close to half off. When the sale happens, stock goes very quickly. Everyone loves a deal!

I’ve gleaned there is also a July sale sometimes, though the dates are not in stone. Announcements arrive via email, usually with short notice. I expect notice will also be posted here.

With the C63 line being new, I would not expect to see any in the sale, except perhaps as Nearly New.

If you’re looking at the C60 Elite, and you’re ok with a pre-owned watch, there are some currently offered. I have no affiliation with any of them except to have seen the notices on FB and here.

Spot on, but I will emphasise that anything desirable disappears like a shot. Hesitate for a second and "It's gone!"

With that in mind, you may want to think about just buying what you want as it suits you since there is no guarantee any particular model will even be in an upcoming sale. Oh, and don't forget the current voucher. The code will be posted on here somewhere, just do a search.

Yeah, well good luck in getting any notice.
I'm a time-served customer who is signed up/subscribed with two different email addresses from two different accounts but I NEVER get any notifications regarding sales.
However, the emails concerning the payment for my recent service came right through.
