Nearly new

About 20 NN watches and few straps added this morning to the clearance section.

Got myself the C3 Malvern for £159.

Managed to get the C65 Dartmouth I have been after for a while.
You have to be quick though as the Ebay vultures are circling!!

I wish they'd hurry up and sell those blue C65s. Despite having tried the C65 for size twice before and failing (imo), I keep wanting to give it another shot as they are such great watches.

They won't be getting any smaller. If the size was an issue before, will it not continue to be one even though the price is reduced?

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.

No need to rush Ryan.

Just wait and buy Paul’s when he flips it! :)

The c65 diver wears really well at 41mm I think. I would probably prefer 20mm lug width, but it's not a real problem. I really like mine.

It's far more about the watch than the discounted price, but yeh, I'm obviously more willing to give it another shot given the discount as I don't really stand to lose. I absolutely loved the 2 I had, especially the vintage vibe of the Khaki diver and the convenience of the hand-wound movement/push-pull crown.
Size wise, most of the time I thought it looked great, then others a touch too much dial (sparse dial). The overall size wasn't the issue as such.

:lol: :lol: JAFO posted as I hit submit and I was still viewing the preview.

Reading my post back, I mentioned that I loved both the GMT and Khaki diver which is 100% correct.
Yet I still sold them both ...

They do seem to have a ton of that particular model. Surprisingly the model on the bracelet doesn't come up, I was able to get one in the sale itself fortunately, but if they are popular it would seem that they could possibly swap the strap for a bracelet and clear the stock. I guess they are already made up in that configuration though and can't (or won't) be swapped out economically.

Just sold... If I hadn't just bought the C65 Cranwell and C5 MMXV FLE, I'd have been very interested in that... it is a lovely watch indeed :thumbup:
