The FLE was 30% off, not sure how much they were new. The listing shows out of stock and doesn't show a price anymore. Maybe they will add more.

That’s interesting... is it one of the “stealth” titanium C60s (i.e. NOT the black PVD model)?

If so, I thought they had dark grey lume etc, to give it the monochromatic dial effect. Does it actually have a smoked crystal to get that look?
I've just checked my Trident Titanium #1 (the 'stealth' one with normal case and grey dial) and the crystal is a regular clear glass.

A smoked crystal, as used by CW on the C8 Regulator MkII of which I have one, looks very different.

Looks like a few new additions to the nearly new section, although I'm skeptical as no images are available for a few of them?
But I've just an order in for the 2017 FLE and C5 Malvern MkIII steel blue... :)

Let's see if I get the dispatch note!
I hope you don't mind me asking but what price was the 2017 FLE please?
I think it was £220.50 - I looked at it myself, but then applied rule #2 and the answer was no

Thanks to you and Nordwulf for your responses. My apologies to you 2 gents as I don't wish to bite the hand that feeds but I'm not sure the 30% and £220.50 together work - The original price for the FLE as shown was £415 I think, so 30% off would make it £290.50. I may well be wrong of course :D

Czechia - Would you mind confirming please as you'll know the actual price you paid, if you don't mind of course.

Apologies again Gents.

... many C7's added at 50% off. Some don't have the discounted price showing yet.

The discounts are still not showing on many of the C7s.

Probably have to wait till the (UK) morning now to know.

My C7 Aurtomatic Chronograph arrived yesterday. All I can say is “wow”. If was a watch I was slightly unsure about. I was prepared to send it back, but no chance! :thumbup:

I can’t take photos that do it justice. A few things jumped out. The case is mostly brushed, but with lovely polished highlights. I hadn’t expected the bracelet to be all brushed, but I think it works really well with the watch. And of course there is the case design with the black band. Compared to my C700 Automatic Chronograph the dial looks bigger and the case a more interesting design.
Trying not to buy any more watches...

Yeah, as stated by others.. I paid 220 GBP for it.
Although I cam still a bit skeptical as when I phoned CW yesterday morning after checking the website and seeing the updated NN's, as I wanted to check what straps came with the watches (as it had no image available). I was told there were no watches in the NN Section!?!?

Which puzzled me, but when I went back online I managed to place an order and pay for the two NN watches I mentioned (2017 FLE and C5 Malvern Mk III steel blue automatic). The payment went through and I have an order when I check my CW account....

However, no email confirmation from there.

I dropped them an email last night quoting my order number to check on the status to see if it's legit?

Yay!!
My NN C60 Bronze is finally on its way to me. Can’t wait to receive it. This is my 6th CW watch purchased since last year. Ah! with regard to my previous January sale purchase issue, I managed to email Scott requested him to cancel my first order due to some glitches in the system during busy January sale. I salute CW CS team for their dedicated service so far. I have never had any issues with them. Whenever I received my watch in the past, I could simply email them what did I feel about the watch, either good or bad experience. Their 60/60 is the best I have used so far. :D

I picked up a NN C8 worldtimer (no. 73 just in case anyone else sent it back with the same issue ) in the sale , arrived faulty (GMT hand slipping) . Returns package ordered , im not interested in getting it repaired , should never arrived broken in the first place .
DPD also doorstepped the parcel without signature !! We live in a town centre apartment above shops and our door is 2 steps from the pavement in plain view of everyone passing. To make it even worse Its also a communal front door .
Reported it to Rob at CW , obviously he was not impressed .

I found myself in the same position with my NN C8 Worldtimer. Apart from a mark on the dial, the UTC hand would not work. Sent mine back for a refund today. Makes me wonder if some of these NN and sale watches are rejected customer returns, beacause they sure have not passed any QC checks.

I spotted that the “Sale” or “Clearance” section seems to have been restocked.
Bagged myself a bargain, due for delivery early next week. Woo Hoo!

Totally agree , there is no way the watch should of been sent out . It's so self defeating, do they think people will keep broken watches ?
