No, there's a new piece at -50% -> https://www.christopherward.eu/s07-42ach1-s0kk0-vk
So NN at -60% it's not such a huge difference in price.
Hmm, not so sure. That's £130!
Don't get me wrong, £130 is not a small amount. But it is only 10 percentage points for new vs used.

Must say that I keep looking at the C70 HRDC as a potential partner for my C70 DBR1 and C70 Ascari :-k
I picked up one this morning as well. Ordered on the Camel Vintage Oak too, so will have to wait a couple of weeks for it.

I have received C7 rapide Chrono Automatic from NN sale and it came dirty. Scratched between lugs. End link on added bracelet (NN too) does not fit perfectly, its wobbly.
I'm have expected a bit more I must say. My 3rd CW and I'm a bit disappointed.
This makes me a bit anxious for my C60 Bronze order.
But yes, with "just" 30% discount, you could expect better condition.

Just for curiosity, would you prefer to return the watch, or a a partial refund?
What could be expected in these situation?
I have no clue :)
I love the watch. Only a small part of the scratch is visible when on bracelet. If a leather strap is on, it is fully exposed.
But the wobbly end link p*sses me off much more. It's like on my much much cheaper Mako 2.

Also sorry to hear that Shaggy, sure it will get sorted but its very frustrating.
The much older C7 chronometer(mk II) i picked up in the 60% NN section seems at 1st inspection to be really good/as new NN condition so its all a bit pot luck. As a customer you need a high standard of consistency, especially when only 10% difference to the new one in the sale.

Hope its resolved quickly!

A Moonglow in the NN section might have tempted me, but I was never holding out much hope of finding one or being first to the button if one appeared. Hey ho.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Fergster - be interested in the Serial # you get - rumour has it that no # higher than 50 has been seen - despite all the literature indicating that it was a 500 LE ...

I have #37 ....

Cheers, Laird

A C65 Trident Diver(green dial, manual wind) s/b on it's way to this side of the pond shortly...
Well, picked up my C65 Trident Diver(Khaki) just a short while ago..considering that I ordered it on the 6th, the CW customer service folks did a great job in getting it to me this fast..I wore my Oris Divers 65 BB(green dial) today so I could do some quick comparisons & photos of the two..yes, it looks like CW was aiming at the Oris 65 when they introduced this watch to the market..it was 50% off, so I paid about $396.00 for it on the camel tan strap(which is nice looking, comfortable, & matches the tan colored indices)..at 41mm w/ a narrow bezel, the dial does seems larger than the Oris's dial..and the edges of the SS case are nicely chamfered..IMO, the CW name at the 9 o'clock position does not detract from the dial's appearance..the Sellita manual movement is smooth & easy to wind and does not take long to fully wind..so, coming from a bargains hunter's perspective(I pd. $1,035 for the Oris, pre-owned, & another $275.00 for the bracelet from a dealer) which do I prefer?..for me, the Oris(w/o bracelet) is about $640.00 more expensive..the SS case isn't as nicely shaped and lacks the impressive 'trident' backplate..on the plus side, the gold plated indice surrounds & gold plated hour/minute hand edges, coupled w/ the bronze bezel edge, really enhances the look of the dial under it's domed crystal..the dial is also a darker shade of green that looks richer..and at 39mm, it wears comfortably on my average sized wrist(as does the CW)..so which do I prefer?..honestly, it's another wash..both are nice looking and have excellent pedigrees..while I slightly prefer the look of the Oris, the CW looks very nearly as nice..really, from a bargain hunter's perspective, I think it boils down to whether one would want to spend another $640.00 for the Oris..and I have the blue dial C65 Diver coming in a few days!! :)

Yes there was quartz (steel) at top and then Auto appeared lower when screen refreshed and I pounced immediately, after contemplating too long earlier this week! Already logged onto account so checkout was perhaps 20 slightly nervous seconds.
Quartz still there for another 10-20 mins as per my post edit.
My sons not a watch guy so far (smartphone generation) so 1st proper watch 😊.

Actually had that watch in my basket and was in process of paying when I changed my mind. Came back five minutes later and that was when it had gone. Am pleased I didn't buy it and that it's going to someone for their first proper watch. Hope he enjoys his first proper watch!
