Ok - thanks. Enough said.....🤣
It was an Omega Seamaster 300 Chrono which was reduced by 30% to £3,045.00 and then went to 40% (£2700) but sadly I missed out as it sold pretty quickly at that discount.

They do have 40% of a half decent Tag and a nice Breitling too
That is not what he was referring to....
yes :) just edited my post.

Think I also recall seeing this Omega Seamaster 300 Chrono in their Winchester store reduced by 30% to £3,045.00 -

The price reduction must be to allow for the gym membership you'll need to build up the arm muscles to wear it. Trust me, I know...
Dang it!

That's my 2020 grail watch!

Dang it again!

Seen in the window of a local pawnbrokers this morning. Seems like a reasonable price.

Sorry, my poor old eyes, it was so small I didn't see it...assumed it was the date or something like that. I should stick to playing Doom.

Don't forget with Ashford, discount codes are often offered, which bizarrely has put me off in the past as some days it's 5, 10, 15%, although prices often increase when higher codes are available.

This'll give you 5% off.

You will have to go to Middlesborough if you want this bargain. Market Cross jewellers have a new North Flag on leather for £2040. I have rung and understandably they won't sell it online.

They also have a couple of half-price steel and gold Omegas ( Aqua Terra and 300 Master Co-Axial ).

Beaverbrook in Banbury are having a closing down sale and are doing 40% off of everything.... Noseing by yesterday and see they have gotten a couple of luxury brands back in amongst the fashion watches they usually sell

This sale is in store only and not online and was told by them that between now and 15th of March that they would be getting other brands in to sell at the 40% discount.... And are doing 0% interest free on the discounted prices too

So picked up one of my grail pieces yesterday with £2360 off of it... :thumbup:

Congrats, that’s a fantastic bargain! :thumbup:

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.
