I ordered one of these NN Blue 42mm GMTs at the same time as borderman and gaf1958. The order confirmation, notifications of the order progress and delivery was superb. It was originally due for delivery yesterday but I had changed it to today and everything went perfectly. Well done CW and DPD.

I decided to give it a try, as it was reduced by 30%, to see if the overall design and of course the price would help me get past the 9 o'clock logo. This is actually smaller than I imagined from web and forum photos but was still like a needle in my eye. Logo apart there's also something about the shade of the blue that I can't gel with, the strap looked a bit wide and overall it just didn't look or feel "right" for me.

I would say though that this 42mm wears smaller than the 42/43mm Scooter that I used to own and it didn't feel thick or big on my wrist.

So unfortunately I won't be keeping the watch and will be requesting a returns envelope. If you're after 1 of this model then keep looking at the CW Clearance next week. Shame as it's a reasonably priced blue dialled watch that I have to strike off my list of options.

Be tempted if it was the raw one. Anybody care to advise on best size for a Bronze C60 to fit a 7 1/4" wrist, 38mm or 43mm :?:
I have a 7.5" wrist and my go to size is 42/43mm. That said my best watch has a 39mm case with 41mm bezel and I have a couple of others in the 36mm - 38mm range.

Ultimately all down to personal preference but the consensus of opinion is likely to be that 43mm will suit you better.

That said, and I'm not suggesting you buy something that is unlikely to be right for you, but there are Distance Selling Regulations and CW's 60/60 that allow you to buy, try and if not suitable return for a full refund (T&Cs apply).

Thanks for the advice Guy :thumbup: , was leaning towards the 43mm.

Ooooh! Love the thought of a 38mm Trident MK3, but in which colour?

Where did that appear from? I’ve been keeping half an eye on the site today and there was no clearance items up to mid afternoon. Hopefully I haven’t missed an Abyss.....

Wow, those went fast!
Just a couple of divers, no dress watches and a few motor sport models left! Missed the Trident MK3s but keeping fingers crossed there will be another off-loading soon.

Hmm. The bronze blue dial GMT is a temptation but when, in reality, would I wear it?
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!

Nope, not me guv!

I was almost tempted and dropped one into my shopping trolley but I left the store before reaching the tills.

I think I'm waiting to see what reductions go on the shelf next week.

A different slant to Clearance Returns...

The barcode the RMSD label on some of the returns packages from CW is not being recognised by the scanners at Post Offices. This is a PO fault on the label not CW's I hasten to add.

So after queuing up 3 times at POs I'm returning a watch myself to the showroom today...now that's Special Delivery.
(This is not something CW can normally accept but due to the fact that any other returns envelope I was to get still might not work they are letting me take it to the Showroom.)

Just be aware if you need to take a return into a PO.

I had the same problem on Friday. Previous return labels have had a licence number above the special delivery barcode which the PO say they need to process it, the one I tried on Friday didn't have it. Ended up paying £11 and have emailed CW

My first returns package was the same as yours but the 2nd that CW sent me did have the licence number on the label but the barcode was still not recognised by the PO scanners. Anyhow living within 20mins of the showroom I drove it back just after lunch, had a quick look at the watches while they sorted out a receipt for me as they didn't have any bookings in the showroom then drive on to Henley-on-Thames and finished my Christmas present shopping. :thumbup:
