Daily specials to beat the sales peaks!

Post by Thermexman »

Just had this email through.


Christopher Ward
Dear valued customer,

I hope this finds you well, and you and your families are coping with the unprecedented situation we’re all currently facing.

We’re still very much open for business and our amazing QC, pick, pack and despatch team continues to ship watches across the world on a daily basis, although to ensure social distancing rules can be strictly adhered to, the team is operating with reduced numbers. And this gave us an idea!

Our January and July Sales are legendary and sell out very quickly. Too quickly for a reduced shipping team to cope with.

So, from today and every weekday thereafter for a few weeks, we are going to place a handful of half-price watches destined for the July Sale on our website.

They’ll go up at random times each day so whatever time zone you’re in, you’ll have a fair chance of buying a watch at an amazing price.

As one of our most valued customers, I wanted you to be among the first to hear and to make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity.

May I also take this opportunity of wishing you and yours a happy, and safe, Easter.

Best wishes,

Mike France

^^^^^ Predictable and understandable for an online only brand. At such times cash is king. A 50% discount will probably be enough to tempt a few folk to press the buy button. :thumbup:

I imagine that many bricks and mortar ADs for normal luxury brands that traditionally may be picked up at a decent discount (20%-30%) will, within a few weeks, be accepting offers via their online chat facilities for offers made at a discount of 40%-50%.

I don't think I've ever pressed the refresh button on my web browser as much as I have today!

Has anyone seen anything posted yet? When I check the 50% page under clearance it tells me page not found. Is there a separate link for these pieces that will be posted?

Watches in Daily Specials and NNs have been posted throughout the day from midday or so. No separate link, just go through the CW site, Watches, Clearance.

Not sure about a 50% off page... but there are two choices under the clearance tabs On.... https://www.christopherward.co.uk/events/clearance2

The daily specials which opens on a now empty page, https://www.christopherward.co.uk/event ... y-specials, which did have several listings earlier today, and hopefully will have more at some point.

And the nearly new page... which did have more earlier today but only has three at this moment in time...
https://www.christopherward.co.uk/event ... early-new3

So yes I have seen stuff posted in both places...😎

I’m guessing you’re not in the UK. I’m in Australia and get the same thing (4 links: 50% off, NN, straps, bracelets). If you change the URL back to the UK site, you’ll see only 2 links: daily specials and NN. There’s some inconsistencies between regional sites.

They’ll pop up at random times of the day and once gone, that’s it until the next day.

On a week day; Monday to Friday.

Now I know that today is Friday, but it is Good Friday and therefore a Bank Holiday. Even under normal circumstances, CW will be closed.

I'm not expecting anything to pop up until Tuesday, but will be delighted if proved wrong.

I also saw some C7 Rapide Quartz models. At one point a Tridet Chronograph Quartz with orange bezel was on the page.

I briefly had the Trident Bronze in my basket, but realized I didn't need another large watch in my collection. I think Trident MKIII in 40mm or 38mm would be more appropriate for my current needs.
