Nice one, cheers Bahnstormer_vRS....I have a plethora of 20mm NATO's waiting to try it out on ('tis such a strange obsession this watch thang)...I am hoping the Sandhurst will make me offload my 2 Hammy Khakis....great sizes, brilliant timekeepers, but, oh lordy, the lack of AR has always been problematic ...

The C60 Chronograph at £1029 is an incredible deal, for those who have wrists big enough to wear it...

Question for those with past experience, do you expect the price to be reduced further?

Don't quote me, but I'm certain that price is higher than it was in the sale event.
Same with the blue C60 600s. They were cheaper than the black versions for whatever reason, but now are listed at the same price.

Ps. Feel free to quote me :lol:

As I have the incredible BumbleBeast, I watched this one with interest. My recollection is that it’s the same price as during the sale.

However, happy to be corrected!

I could have sworn I saw it for less than £1k on bracelet, but perhaps it was on strap? :?

Edit - it must have been this NN one screenshot'd a few posts down on the sale thread ...

It's the same price on the bracelet option as it was in the sale. However, I think a strap option appeared in the sale for a short period at a price below £1k, but that's not reappeared in the clearance section.

Yeh, there was a NN model available on bracelet. See my edit above. :thumbup:

I think the title for the last few has just changed from.sale to (final) clearance. I thought the prices were unchanged. They should be 30% discount in the main, so it's easy to check. A few were 35% or even 40% in the original sale.

I noted that many of the watches left are 38mm which maybe implies they had made more 38mm watches, or that 38mm is not as popular as marketing trends would imply.

These eight watches, or eight models with multiples, don't seem to be moving all that quickly: where are the notorious scalpers and grabber/flippers this weekend?

I guess they aren't interested in discontinued models.

Many people, including our own @downer, proponent of downer's law, suggest "always buy on the bracelet if available".

Do you like big watches? The thing is 17.2mm thick. It wouldn't look out of place on your wrist, but it all comes down to personal preference.

I say DO IT
