Hoped for a better Sale or will it get better??

Post by crag145 »

Hi all, happy new year......logged on today with intentions of blowing my Christmas fund, I gave very clear instructions to those nearest and dearest............give me money!!...I knew a sale would soon happen but was very disapointed to see only 1 C6 in the 50% off section and not a whole lot of bargains......what happened to the crazy deals that used to pop up this time of year...who could ever forget the Sector watches for under £100......C6 T3 for £75...maybe a 20% off everything for starters. Maybe things will look better tomorrow?.

That is a shame - did you not get the advance preview email that came out around the 27th dec? I take it nothing on there takes your fancy? Maybe they will put some more on sale in the not too distant future? Maybe.

Nope no email...... Could it be that I haven't purchased anything for over a year?. The homepage hasn't shown a Sale for the past week?.

No it was a preview before the sale went live. Forum members get the mails as do customers usually. I did post a link to the preview sale on a thread that had started on the sales for those that had not received the e-mail.

I have seen them do a mid sale refresh with some new NNs to keep things moving but it all depends what is in stock and what models they want to move.

Buying has nothing to do with it. You may need to reregister for the emails. My email was lost with the site upgrade somehow.

The home page sale went up today. The preview (advance notice) went out last week.

There were not many watches but the variety was very good. Becketts & C700 stuck out for me. Looking now, is it just me or all prices not showing vat until you click on them? Don't like when sites do that as I have no choice but to pay it

Occasionally prices drop a bit further to clear the remains of the sale, but most of what is still available is pretty good VFM if compared with alternatives.
