It's almost tempting to drive the 50 miles to see what bargains are to be had...!

@ 40 pence per mile, that will cost you £20 versus a saving of £££££ ?

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:
Absolutely beautiful, stunning Zenith EP ! Congratulations on the addition and remarkable price !!

They have other models from them too in there... Including the unnamed tobacco company limited edition in steel and not gold though :silent:
Did they have any zenith defys? Been lusting after the classic blue face one.

Thanks!

They had a few pilot ones, don't think they had the defy in blue... They may have had the skeleton dial one in chrono or it might've been the EP skeletal

Tbh my eyes were transfixed on this EP to pay too much attention to the others for too long

Haha! I don’t blame you, I have the El P myself, but with a silver dial - gorgeous watch!

£2605 seems a reasonable deal for a U-22 for anyone interested

3% topcashback too brings another £60 or so back.

That's pretty close to the price I paid from Chisholm Hunter for my U-22 BZ in their Black Friday sale at the end of November last year.

Great watch and I have no regrets about getting mine.

^^^^ I reckon that buying anything from the vast majority of brands at more than 50% of RRP will turn out not to be a bargain.
