Not necessarily. I wanted to try out 3 different CWs and although I was considering doing this during non-sale times, it was much more affordable to try them during the sale given they all popped up! (Also, then any I kept would've been kept at sale price rather than full price) They're all going back - nothing wrong with the watches, just not for me. But as I only received them this week from the sale (!) they're going back rather late!
Which ones did you order and which are you returning? Especially as you state there was nothing wrong with them. It would be a help to anyone thinking of buying one of your returns.

Just went to update on what's on clearance, it looks like they've removed the clearance section. I guess it's another 4 months 'till we see another batch of nearly new

Or better yet offer them for sale at cost here first - that way they only have one more trip in a post van to potentially get damaged rather than two?

Thank you!
Also after the sale, we have had before a general 15% across the board sale, which would help with, say, regular leather straps. No guarantee of that, of course.
Hello, I am new to CW, after a friend was recently given a CW watch as a present. I have been browsing the site, looking at the forum and reading reviews. I have a question which I am sure that one of you much more knowledgeable people will be able to answer. I am interested in the C60 Elite 1000 Dive Watch (rather than a Tag which I had my eye on). Some of the reviews priced it at £1470 with the bracelet. It is currently on the CW website priced at £1250. My question is this, is the current price a limited time 15% offer post sale, or is £1250 now the standard price?
Thanks, Rich

^^^ I have no idea why the price changed, but it sounds as though it has your name written on it. There is also a voucher knocking around for £100 off.

I think that one was one of the models that they dropped prices on last year after the release and they stayed there. The C65 Chronograph was another one.

Correct. :thumbup: :thumbup:

If you have a look at the Resale and Pricing Information for the C60 Elite 1000 on the CWArchive you'll see an initial price of £1,250.00 - £1,470.00 and a last (current price) of £995.00 - £1,250.00 - lower price on strap, upper price on bracelet.

As Rick suggests, CW realigned the price, downwards, of a number of models last summer; the C60 Elite 1000 being one.

I hope this helps.

Hi folks, thanks very much for the information. The Elite is looking more and more appealing, especially with a £100 off voucher.
