. . . . because a Nearly New item is only 30% discount.

I received my elite prototype today, which was a pleasant surprise. Interesting on the warranty card it says 'nearly new' which is good as it shows that it would have been discounted.

I will upload images shortly, but I am really struggling to see what is different about it other than having a serial number of 0000. I am sure in the initial blurb it talked about a white logo, but i cannot see it being any different really.

Your watch doesn't have the twin-flags logo on the dial in white (it's ghosted), while the main image of this model's product page does and is also mentioned in its description.

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.
Don't knock it, it seems to work. Plenty of "rare" watches sold.

Well, despite being in the full flush of adoration for my gorgeous new C8 Power Reserve which arrived today, and the imminent arrival of a C65 Super Compressor, I was again tempted by the latest re-stock of the sale this afternoon... this time a C65 Black Gold LE :D

I was going to get the blue C65 Trident Diver back in the sale in July/August, but bought my C65 Cranwell instead, so the model has always appealed, but this colour combination seems particularly classy and the black tropic strap also works with the C65 SC too :thumbup:

In the space of a week, I have gone from 2 CW watches to 5... have I gone mad, or is this normal :lol:

I did get in pretty quick, but hopefully this model wasn't oversold, there was also a NN one as well :?

Past: C9 5 Day 43mm Automatic, C5 Malvern 595

That is a different watch to mine, but I am sure in the original information of it, it did say the flags were white at 12.

You might be able to find it on these screenshots that what-time-is-it took of the original sale:

I see two that stand out to me. Row 21 has a 600 Pro listed as NN and has a white twin flag. There is also a Trident Titanium #1 in row 52 also listed as NN with a white twin flag.

As a side note that C65 Trident Auto with the white face and black indexes and hands is awesome. Whoever snagged that is a happy camper I bet!
Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombre COSC LE, C65 Super Compressor

In Review:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 10 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

I recall seeing a very disappointed post from the buyer of that one, finding the dial to be silver rather than white and that it was going to be returned. So you may get an opportunity in the future to pick that one up if it still interests you.

I hope that C60 bronze trident with the blue face and blue bezel makes it way into the regular line up, it's a really nice looking watch.

I feel that this sale should be titled "Al Deere's Super Compressor Sale"

Right but that doesn't answer my question as to *why* a nearly new has a 30% discount and a new has a 40% discount when it is the *same watch*.
