My Sale order was placed late last night (actually around 01:00 hrs GMT this morning, Friday).

Current Order Status: Being prepared for despatch

Likely will get sent out on Monday now.

Ordered around 4pm UK time yesterday (which is about 8am PST) and got a dispatch confirmation around 3pm today, and confirmation it was with the carrier at 5pm.

My Tribus TRI-03 is a bit like that - can be hard to read at a glance, but a twist of the wrist catches the light and instantly fixes it - perhaps strangely it's a quality I rather enjoy about the watch!

The Abyss watches are definitely ones I'd love to see in the flesh.

I'm interested in seeing what ends up in the Sales Corner to pay for the January Sale purchases :D

I tried to bag the Bronze C60 LE that was listed, but someone else had faster fingers.
I’d like to see if it was anyone in here!
Keep well,

I ordered the C63 black dial since yesterday but no info on the dispatch yet. This is my first CW, how long it usually take for international shipping?

Not strictly 'Sale' watches, the Revival Special Editions have nevertheless been listed on CW's website within the 'Sale' section, therefore arguably qualify for this thread.

My two arrived late this morning and somewhat late in the day, I got them unboxed a short while ago.

C5 Malvern Revival Special Edition - C05-40ADA1-S00W0-OK

C8 Pilot Revival Special Edition - C08-44A3H1-SD0K0-VK

I've only had a brief look at them so far under bright LED Kitchen lighting, which is not ideal to judge the character of the watch but overall CW have done a fine job. :clap: :clap:

The C5, in the C1 Grand Malvern case is exquisite. I remember the original C5 wearing really small for its size but the revival is the opposite looking well balanced on my wrist, on which I'm used to wearing 42mm - 44mm pieces. Legibility of the silver hands against the white, but looking more of a light cream, dial is good.

The black oak leather strap looks like it will work well, looking almost as good as CW's excellent Cordovan straps but for 2/3rds the price. One niggle though is, whilst having a Bader buckle befits the dress style watch the strap has a straight profile (it means CW only use one 20mm Bader on their straps instead of having to source 20mm and 18mm). This, I feel, will make the watch look a tad chunky. We'll see.

The C8 DLC was / is, honestly a bit of a shock. The white of the markers, numerals and hands really stand out against the black case. This is perhaps just my perception as I'm used to vintage lume on black or charcoal CW Aviators.

It reminds me though of my first CW watch, a C11 MSL 'Black Manta', which I really liked for the black/white legibility.

Anyway, I'll have a better look at them in daylight tomorrow (today?).

Even though I had checked my email first thing in the morning, I didn't get the notice until mid afternoon. I missed out on the early pickings, and the offerings were consistent by the time I got to the sale page. That was a good thing - I had plenty of time to consider and research the C65 Pepsi GMT. Fortunately, not many buyers found it as appealing as I did. Soon I will be the owner of a Pepsi GMT-V1.

I got an email saying that my watch would be delivered on Monday. Lo and behold a DPD van pulled up outside my house 10 minutes ago. The driver got out and I could see him struggling to open the lock on the rear doors of his van. I went out with my can of WD40 and that did the job. Just as well as he had a delivery for me!
