Who got the blue c60 then?
That was me, but unfortunately it will be going back. The colour just wasn’t right for me and seemed very different than shown on the website.
Glad you still managed to get one and hope it serves you well.

I was quite surprised when I saw the colour of mine in one of my photos (with flash) horrified even. However whenever I look at it under more normal lighting situations I love it. The blue bezel, blue face, that came up/is up for sale looks just like mine did in the not so nice photo but it looks a lot nicer in the flesh.

Brisk business in NN since yesterday, all the bronze have gone, just one C65 and C60 apiece left.
I think the majority were removed by CW for some reason, was still a good chunk available at approx. 9am (UK), but then gone a few minutes later.
No watches in NN.

I would not think that they are bad sellers - generally speaking, from what I have read, these are very nice watches.
(Caveat: not for me due to the imbalance of the logo :silent: on the overall look of the dial).
It is more likely that they are returns that didn't meet the expectations of the discerning customer.
After all, with CWs world leading 60/60 guarantee :D ,it's a no brainer to buy, look at and then return.

Does the clearance section get more models after Christmas? I’m trying to decide if it’s worth ordering before Christmas with the code or try waiting until after Christmas for 30% off.

Probably, possibly but if it definitely will, what models will be in it and if you'll manage to buy what you want to before somebody else snaps it up then your guess is as good as anybody else's on this Forum.

Any comments on the "Best time to buy a C60" thread will apply here with whatever model you're considering.

Maybe the defective returns like misaligned hands or markers, out of spec accuracy and so on will be repaired/adjusted and also find their way on NN? I am guessing they can't sell these as new anymore.

It’s an interesting one. With reported 20k plus watch sales per year and a generous, market-leading returns policy, it’s not that surprising that quite a few find their way to Nearly New, including CW’s most popular models.

But returns should be unworn, so theoretically most should be capable of being sold as new, so maybe it is just a smaller population that has the odd mark? But then all the NNs that I’ve bought (admittedly only a few) have been, as far as I can tell, new.

Who knows what the policy is? What I can say is that it makes for some cracking deals ;-)
