Hello... the "Sale/Clearance" page has been pulled....

'Ello, 'ello, what's going on 'ere then?

The /jansale2019 page we've been following, not least to follow the fate of the two seemingly unloved C60 COSCs has been pulled and the only current offerings - with 2 days to Fathers Day in good old GB - are four 18mm leather straps.

The sale page dropping off has previously been symptomatic of a full-blown discount sale feeding frenzy.

Could it be?

I've had a go with most CW models in the true spirit of online buying - get it, try it, keep it or flip it! White C60 Mk2, Black C60 Mk2 GMT and the big blue beast!

Could it simply be that they’ve sold everything that will sell, and the 2 unloved chronometers will go back down the back of the sofa to be forgotten about for another few months?

Anywhere else I'd think so but this lovely companies' business model thus far has been periodic "sales" timed to coincide with roughly any point on the annual calendar when men might be persuaded to part with money/buy another watch or to.

On the eve of Father's Day this is unusual and disconcerting behaviour.... unless there's going to be the traditional logjam of a surplus stock sale? I can wait.... :lol:

I'm tempted just buy all of those 18mm straps, I'm sick of looking at them.

Silly question, but what CW watches have 18mm straps??

Predominantly the C5 and C5A Malvern, plus some early C3 Chrono.

The two COSC SH21 Tridents are no longer there, but there is a good selection of Mk2 Tridents instead.

There's also a good selection in Dress; including a C65 Trident Vintage and C65 Trident Classic.
