This is an indulgence only for the watch buffs - I'm well aware that an £11 Casio will tell the time just as well as this expensive watch. However, for the enthusiast, this is a cheap(ish) way of getting the Valjoux 7750 movement which can be found in much more expensive brands such as Omega or Breitling. The C40 Speedhawk in PVD black is reduced from £650 to £455 (+ £7.95 postage) - don't forget 5% Quidco.

Watch features:-

> Swiss made
> 25 Jewel Swiss automatic chronograph
> Etachron regulator system
> 3 counter multi-function chronograph (hours, minutes and stop second)
> Uni-directional rotating bezel and internal tachymeter
> Day / date calendar
> Convex sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating
> Screw-in crown
> Water resistant to 50m (5 atm)
> Adjustable quick-release butterfly clasp
> PVD Black surgical grade stainless steel case
> Peregrine-shaped counterbalance
Technical

ppl voting cold on the price/brand/desire rather then discount applied

WOW, such a hot deal, NOT

Ricco

ppl voting cold on the price/brand/desire rather then discount applied


An example of that would be my sale of a loaf of stale warbuton bread/thick cut on ebay. Im selling this for £999, HOWEVER, today ive discounted it to £1.99 to all you lucky buyers

This "Deal" is stale

Hot from me.
People voting cold for, IMO, silly reasons.
Thx for posting.
If only there were a Cartier Tank Francaise deal out there.

Voted hot. Excellent high end watch for a good price.

Anyone spending that much on a watch, wont be looking at UK hot deals. people spending that much money on a watch dont ask how much it costs, and the shops selling them dont have prices displayed. It may well be the bargain of the century for some rich pr*cck who would rather spend £600 a watch than give that money to the poor.

Thanks for posting. These are very good quality watches and with this discount are even better value.

bouncy99-Hope you have a better 2012 than you are obviously having now.

I'm far from a rich pr#%k but Id pay this for a decent watch, and yes I do give to charity. We all like a bargain that's why we are on here if you have a problem with this then keep it to yourself

Chris Ward watches are good value for money in the sale, voted hot

Christopher Ward not a dodgy brand with fake RRP prices then offered at a huge apparent discount. I've owned a Christopher Ward Malvern watch previously, which I then sold (I got more than I paid for it) to help fund my Omega Speedmaster Pro. The watches are made in Switzerland with with quality Swiss movements.

If someone can point me in the direction of another watch with the Valjoux 7750 movement for a similar price I'd be very interested. I bought this one for work and I'll be putting it onto a NATO strap. Next watch I'd like after this is a Sinn 356 Fleiger (with same Valjoux 7750 movement but £1000+)

Seems well priced for the spec of the watch. Not a 'bargain' but a good deal.

I do donate to charity and I work in a low paid job - however I choose to spend my money buying and selling the occasional watch rather than foreign holidays, binge drinking, Sky TV etc

Have some heat. If this had been a Breitling this would have gone scorchio just like the deal the other day. Just cos people haven't heard of this brand doesn't necessarily make it a dodgy brand like so many out there, CW is a respected brand.

German brand "UHR" do a range of 7750 based chronographs for between 400 to 600 euros.
uhr.info/en/…UHR
And this diver's one for 500 E uhr.info/pro…tml
My first (and only) 7750 was a Revue Thommen which I paid about 450 euros for, unfortunately when I recieved it there was a problem with the rotor and it would not wind so I had to send it back.

Good price. Nice watch and decent movement which should hold its value...

I haven't heard of this brand before, but it seems like a great alternative to the Omega Seamaster: Planet Ocean. I can see why these are a good deal. The more premium brands retail for £3-4k. £500 by comparison isn't bad in that respect.

Indeed a really good watch. I was looking for bracelet version, feel sad because it is not on sale

I've got 2 CW watches both I picked up as Nearly News, saving a fair whack. The quality of their watches are superb!

Quite fancy the jumping hour one but most likely be a C7!

Sure Can Comrade

1) Housing
2) Clothing
3) Food
4) Hookers
5) Anything that isnt a watch that you vainly wear on your wrist, hoping people will see it and gawp in awe. Then gawp at you like your soft in the head when you try to impress them by telling them how much it cost.

Clearly Im not a watch lover.

No sir you have no taste for the finer things in life...

This site is open to everyone & is about deals, not about items we can only afford.

By using sites like this & MSE has saved me enough cash to be able to afford items like this watch. Oh & I am living on a student budget & I have a mortgage & a family. If that makes me rich then good for me ;-)

I like to wear watches like this because I appreciate good engineering, I don't give a monkeys what anyone else thinks & I certainly don't wear watches to impress, I have other skills that impress people far more than the cost of a watch ;-)
