So basically, it must be nearly new or a run-out model?

The current GBP 100 promo code will give you 10-20% off, depending on the model. So buy now and get the exact model/color/strap/size you want while they are still available.

I was waiting for a Titanium v2 old logo to go on clearance. They did but they were gone before I could get one. Still regret not getting one at a higher price.

^^ nordwulf is spot on. Use the voucher and secure the model you'd like at a modest discount. They are brilliant watches

The present version is such a popular watch that there's no guarantee there'll be any run-down supply available just prior to the release of the new version. If there are any they'll be gobbled-up very quickly whether by profiteers or people with the same idea and question as you.

If you like the existing version there's the current £100 voucher discount or you must check the Clearance list virtually constantly every day to get a NN at 30% off.

Acan vs Blue dial? I'd go for the blue dial on a bracelet.

I waited for the first gen C8 regulator to go on sale...and if it did, it wasn’t for long and I missed it...it took four years to find another. I agree with others...use the coupon codes and get the watch and strap combo you want...you’ll find sometimes in the 30 -50% off section during the big sales that CW seems to use it a way of thinning their strap inventories as I’ve noted combos in the past that I never saw offered when released...not sure that is the case any longer but at any rate the sales are pretty well publicized on the forums and FB...look how quickly the last two batches of NN’s went...lately, I have wondered silently if they are using the NN section as a vehicle to to create buzz to move additional watches...I used to hear stories of watches that had visible wear to them but mostly what I have seen and heard are watches that appear to be new.

1. At full price the C60 is good value for money.

2. With the regular discount codes it is great value for money and you can choose the exact color/strap combo you want.

3. In nearly new they are amazing value for money, but you may not be able to get the exact color/strap combo, and you have to wait for one to pop up, and there is a chance they will sell before you get chance to order one.

If you really want a C60 and have a specific color/strap combination in mind, I would recommend ordering one with the regular discount code and get exactly what you want, when you want. Sometimes waiting to try to get it at the cheapest price possible isn't worth the wait and frustration of not getting exactly what you want, when you want it.

They may appear to be new, but I can’t believe they’re regularly knocking out new stock as NN to create a buzz. Is that a thing? They must be returns or show models. I picked up a NN and it had an old presentation box - a nice one, but the old logo. That can’t be enough to mark a brand new item down by 30%? There must be a reason they put them in NN instead of next door in the 30% off window.

That whole business with clearing out a boat load of C7s last month was very odd, especially as they were dropped from the main site at the time. Does anyone in the know, errr... know what that was all about?
