Interesting that the official sale is over, but these have appeared - wonder if it's just things that have been returned from the sale that they'd rather shift than hang on to until July?

I think they more likely to be end of line items than returns. All of their SKU codes start with S, nearly new items start with N.

That makes sense - they definitely seemed to sell a few Bumble Beasts over the last couple of weeks based on the activity on the CWE Facebook group - I'd absolutely love one if I had the spare cash right now, but got my sights set on our family summer holiday now so I need to be on my best behaviour :lol:

Sigh... here we go again with my dancing around a C65 Dartmouth.

The Dartmouth currently listed is on a bracelet, where the last I'd seen available on the sale was on a strap, though there was some available on the bracelet earlier in the sale... which makes me think this clearance page may contain both items being cleared out/discontinued, as well as some returns from the sale, which could also be discontinued items, mixed in with some NN models. I guess it's worth refreshing the clearance page daily to check for any new returns?

Based on past clearance sales, I believe the clearance items are all discontinued models being retired from the CW ranges. In contrast, the sale did offer some nearly new & a few holdovers from previously retired models like the C1 Morgan SH21.

How likely would it be to find a C63 Stainless Steel bracelet in Clearance? I'm assuming not-too-likely. :(

Excellent choice. I used to have a Sandhurst on bracelet, which is great to disguise the short lug-2-lug; but it looks equally good on a NATO.
