I'm seeing a C8 now. 50% off. PVD.
Don't think it lets you add to bag.
Right you are.
Wow they do go immediately, huh.

I almost got a C65 Trident Vintage but it went out of stock as I was competing payment details.

Why does a 'nearly new' item cost more than the same 'watch with 40% off I wonder?

Just missed the C8 power reserve for the third time. To call myself frustrated is an understatement.
There is one on now at 30% off NN
I see it. I’ve been trying to get the 50% off DLC. I can’t afford the extra ~$400 and greatly prefer the DLC.
That's such a great shame... that must have gone very quickly, I didn't even see it when I looked, only the NN in steel :shock:
Current: C65 Cranwell, C8 Power Reserve, C65 Super Compressor,
C65 Black Gold LE, C65 316L LE, C5 MMXV FLE, Apple Watch Series 4
Incoming: C65 Blue/Bronze Prototype
Past: C9 5 Day 43mm Automatic, C5 Malvern 595

I guess it’s meant to be. I really don’t need more watches right now. I have wanted one for years though. Disappointing, but moving on.

Same mate.
Wanted one since I found CW.
But dont need one, having just bought something, and can neither justify it, nor really afford it at the mo...... Still wouldnt have stopped my buying it if I was quicker! :oops:

It's a prototype. One of several which used/trialled different patination techniques according to the blurb.

Doesn't really give it any real uniqueness though does it.

This is listed as a prototype as well:

I guess there's not much interest as it's similar to existing models.

Isn't that the price of a Mk3? Given that you'll get a discount on the new version, it seems an odd "Sale" choice.

Yeah... It looks a lot like my naturally patinating C60 purchased last year. Maybe I should list mine on eBay as a prototype?

Most ebay sellers go for "Rare" ... often quite amusing to see how many 'rare' things there are in a list.

That example has the 'ghost logo' in white, making it somewhat unique.

I wondered why some watches had no reduction in the "sale". They ought to flag them as "one-offs" and "prototypes". I just thought they were over priced errors and ignored them,
