If you could pick any watches on CW‘s site for 55% off which one would you pick?

Post by NeWard »

Hello fellow CW enthusiasts, I recently got a discount for an order I placed during July sale which get oversold and get offered a 55% discount on any non limited edition models from CW‘s website. If you were given this chance which watch would you choose for your purchase? Would you think the more expensive ones the better or just pick something that you like?

Its only a bargain if you would pay full price for it - Downer's Rules i.e. buy what you like, not what you think you ought to because it is cheap.

I'm with him... buying 'cos it's cheap isn't the route to long-term happiness and you might as well think alongside the EBay flippers - where's the maximum return on investment?
Buy the model you'll enjoy wearing day in, day out.
C60 MKI COSC black, MKI black GMT,
C60 300 white,
C60 MKII Day Date LE, GMT White, LE SH21, ACAN, Bronze Ombre LE,
C60 MKIII Ombre COSC, Elite 1000 GMT,
C6 Kingfisher x3,
C60 K'fisher
C600 Tritech x 3,
C65 Anthropocene. Blue h/w,

Same advice, take 3. Buy the one you think you will like most and wear most.

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.

I cant offer any better opinion than the advice already given. What is the watch (if there is one) that you really want from CW?

I was in a fortunate position last year (I had a sizeable voucher for £X towards any CW watch).
There was 1 that I genuinely lusted after but hadnt been able to justify buying at that time (C9 AM GT). If there wasnt I would have held on to the voucher until a model arrived I did want or bought a desirable model and sold on to put the £ towards something I really wanted.

If there are any of the expensive cw's that you have thought "yep, I really like that but crickey that's a lot for a cw" then thats the one to go for.

Very generous of CW to offer that :clap:
What watch did you miss out on?

If it was a dress I'd be looking at C1 Moonglows or the Worldtimer.

If it was a dive I'd be all over a C60 Elite GMT.

Whatever you do it needs to be something you like!

I liked the Morgans especially the aero 8 but even with the discount im having hard time pulling the trigger on it...
