C60 Trident Chronograph 300

Post by J0EMI »

So being late to the sale after someone kindly posted the link on here (I didn't get an email), I had a quick glance and saw the C60 Trident Chronograph 300, now being a sucker for things that are orange and matt black (the C7 Hornet LE did tempt me), the combination of the two I thought looked great, and was a great price too. Unfortunately it was gone before I could even finish looking at the pictures. Do old models like this pop up regularly in sales to be sold off or do you think my only chance of getting this watch now would be through ebay? Photo of the watch below for reference.

They were on the last sale, and appear on this sale too so don't give up hope. I missed out last time but was lucky enough to bag one in this sale. Maybe check the sale page when the preview finishes as they may release a few more.

You never know, but one might pop up in the Forum Sales Corner at some stage.

Thanks for the info, just curious though, why do they have stock of models that have been discontinued for a while and why would they only release them to be sold during sales?

Do you happen to know when the preview finishes?

Preview finishes tonight.

Have you tried contacting them directly - again how I got mine after missing the daily sales due to website issues?

The preview finishes at Midnight tonight (GMT) and the sale then goes Public.

Potentially, more stock to be added tomorrow.

"why do they have stock of models that have been discontinued for a while and why would they only release them to be sold during sales? " -

they sometimes have a few left over pieces and then there maybe 60/60 returns at some stage. CW then store them up, to be released in their half-yearly sale, although it has been known for them to run a 'Clearance' section from time to time. Releasing them at 'Sale' time also keeps the website tidy with only current models listed.

Good luck in your search.

That's what clothes shops do, isn't it. In amongst the sale items they have loads of old stuff they try to flog as well.

At least old watches are pretty well perfect, just discontinued lines.

I clicked that. The listing actually came up in Polish, although they said the watch is in the US - either way, it's probably 20% VAT on top for UK customers.

I have the 300 Chronograph with the black bezel. It is a beauty. I missed out on a Trident 300 with orange bezel that was I my buy list. Hopefully, next time.
