Didn't score on summer sale

Post by desmodue »

I was hoping to snag a NN 40mm Blue Mk3 Trident, no luck. Guess I need to save a few more bucks and order a shiny new one. It was still worth a shot.

Keep looking, it’s not over yet. CW often top-up the sale stock a little, including when the sale opens up to the wider public.

The unsold count is 25. I keep refreshing from time to time. I imagine new ones will be added from 12 onwards or so UK time, to give the US the same chance. You have to be quick though, don't you? You snooze, you lose. I am logged in ready, and I check out with paypal.

I have an intern watching and refreshing the page every ten minutes or so this morning while he trains on the SEM. Worth a shot.

When I started looking on Thursday it was at 36. I keep refreshing beacuse this chap understands how it goes:

Who knows? A bronze? A moonphase? A C60? No smaller then 40mm and for preference 42mm or bigger. It's better to grab almost anything that's close than to miss out, but if you miss out it's not the end of the world either.

Scored one!

I had a minor issue getting the order in. A message saying my credit card info wasn't correct, would pop up each time i hit the order button. I'd double check everything, hit the button and same message. Mastercard stopped the payment and had sent an email asking if I recognized the order.

It's not the blue version,but a gleaming black 40mm Trident Pro 600.

Somehow I don't think I will be feeling too sorry for myself over the color choice though :D

There must have been a few NN available because I also scored one of the same.

Probably had a couple. I did get a confirmation email, but who knows maybe tomorrow I’ll get the “sorry, we sold that one to Leon” message 🤷‍♂️

Some new watches have been added. A nice c60 ombre for one. cosc limited edition.

Edit. The CW one seems to have gone now, although I think there's one on ebay for about the same price closing shortly.

Edit 2. The one on eBay had a starting bid of £600 and nobody bid at all. Relisted now.
