c60 Sapphire would be down to £700 with this voucher...so very tempting...
They also sell alot of the watches at half price once a year. I bought a Makira Pro a few years ago, nearly bought at 700 then it went down to 350 on the sale. Its a regular occurrence with them.
Very true, but if you visit a dealer you can haggle and negotiate downwards. You can't do that online which is a pain as there are a number of watches I'd like. You have to sit it out and wait for codes/reductions .
To be fair, outside of a very select few brands / models, all watches are overpriced at RRP (or at least by the definition of a discount being the norm).
This offer is available almost monthly. It's great you get £100 off a £500+ watch, but the regularity of the deal makes you think there watches are too expensive at RRP.
£50 Discount on Christopher Ward Watches over £300
No longer on the website.... looking forward to the next sale...
Is that the C3 Grand tourer?
They will have a similar sale in early July. They usually do 2 a year. They do sell watches at 50%off, generally end of line and lots of 'nearly new'(customer returns or review watches) at 30% off.
I guess this sale is pretty much over now. There are only five watches in the sale section, and the discounts don't seem like the £1k down to £500 that's been mentioned with the other sale watches. Is the next big sale early January 2022?
Waqas, starting to see a pattern.... 1pm GMT now there is 9 on offer
Christopher Ward Black & Also Brown Deployant Clasp 18mm Leather Watch Strap £24.75£24.75
A bit niche and only 18mm available but as the strap has a deployant clasp, it’s a bit of a steal and it means that every new replacement leather strap can be fitted with the quick… Read more
Deployment clasps fit each person differently, if you're lucky it will sit nicely. If not, you've two options 1. Traditionally deployment clasps are fitted reverse, so try it both ways round. 2. fit a standard buckle clasp (they're only small spring bars). CW are a very good brand quality wise, near Tag but more similar to Ball in quirkiness and standard. I've a well paid friend who says his best watches are both CW and he treats himself ££. If you can't afford this one Watchgecko often reduce their deployment clasp in the sale, I have three, bargain for <£11
Damn I wish they had a 20mm at a decent price! Heat added, ridiculously low price!
Many thanks ordered in brown (y)
Sheesh...maybe if they have something for about £200 someday! Or tomorrow!
There is a whole search thing going on just now with pre sale stuff not appearing. Assume you can search on manuals though? So like here, a listing of all manual watches does not show the 65 Trident Diver on offer. LINK

How much did you pay for it if you don't mind me asking? I'm keen to get the new version, but I'm also considering buying one like yours used from ebay. Trying to figure out what would be a fair price.
A nearly new one was on there about 30 mins ago for £1029, blue and black version. Sold quite quickly it seems! The blue gmt version is still there for £1200 though.
Must be a bronze kinda day
It is a shame that some buy just to sell while others buying to wear miss out. Here's the C65 Trident Bronze I got in the sale which is maturing nicely.

That's how all the cw sales go. They take away the half price watches tab when its finished. They do occasionally add the odd extra ones but it's not guaranteed so just got to keep checking. Is there one you wanted? They regularly have a £100 off code and %15 off codes which bring some watches close to the sale prices I've seen on the popular watches.
do you reckon they are still preparing for the sale and it's not officially on yet ? as I see a lot of issues with the page ? surely not everything could have sold out that quickly ? I dont thin kthey've made it live yet ?
Just saw them, but already gone. I think people just buy and then decide and then there's the ebayers, will be on there by the end of the day.
Lots of watches just came up on sale and went in a second, i was on the phone and missed it, couldn't get even one ;( ;(
With the success of the presale, and that they are mainly selling off older/less popular models, I don't think they are going to spend to much on advertising when they clearly don't need to. They have a half price watch sale section on the website, nothing new has been added today(yet?). The only watch there half price is the blue face c65 trident, you can pre order it for later in july. Nice watch and good price. If you subscribe, you'll get the emails about sales and discounts codes etc.

It think it was at first but sold out. If you subscribe, you would of had 2 days of early access before they went on general sale. I picked up this, always liked it and at 50% off, seems like a good price to me for what you get.
An ok brand if you get a watch in a sale.
I agree with a lot of the comments above. CW a good few years afo were an interesting brand at the lower of the market and entry level mechanical watches. Since they've dramatically increased their prices without the justification. Their quality, pedigree and heritage don't match their prices. They are overpriced for what they are. . They also have too many products in their line up. Their new logo looks like something dreamt up by a 5 year old. Also everything in their sale looks like turd imo, none of their actual popular models.
Not sure agree with your comments, owned a couple and they are overpriced at the very least at full price, even at sale prices I cant say I am really tempted, I do like the C7 Rapide though but even at £197 for a quartz watch with a leather strap is just an average price for a watch. What on earth makes this watch at full price almost £400?

If it jumps two seconds at a time, means that the power is low. You should change the capacitor (it's a battery actually) and all should be ok.
I was looking at the new Xiaomi watches recently, which seem to use either a citizen / miyota or seagull movement. They're pretty cheap - what are people's opinions of them? I used to wear a Seiko kinetic (over 15 yrs old now), which broke (second hand job jumps 2 second now). Are modern cheap automatic watches actually any good?
I bought a CW in sale. Makaira pro 500. Well made, but CW always do this. I would be tamping if you bought one of their new releases only for them to cut the price in half 18months later.
I'm enjoying this thread - has a bit of everything: snobbery/inverted snobbery, voices of reason/voices of pure insanity etc etc. All on that most subjective of topics. Personally, I'd be happy to have a CW or 2 in my collection but only if bought at 50% or less of RRP and preferrably limited editions. I'm sure the quality is up there with the low end Swiss brands and they should last but there'll always be those that'll sneer at smaller "non-Swiss" makes (despite their having simliar movements, materials, quality control etc).
CW are ok. They're not Omega or Rolexes, nor will they ever be so. That said, you can get a CW containing the same movement as far more expensive watches, and build wise they're ok IMO. I own a couple of their pieces (I have ~20 watches) but wouldn't pay over £400 for any of them, nor will I buy anymore with the current logo as it's fugly IMO. That said, I'd much rather wear a decent CW than some of the hugely overpriced Tissot/bulova/Micheal kors shite, which often seem to contain some cheap internals and the build quality of which isn't as good as CWs. As others have said, only buy CWs in the sales getting 40-50% off turns some models into a reasonable deal. I'll also add the after sales service IME is excellent and puts others I've used such as TH & JLC to shame.
Christopher Ward watches, 30% - 50% off January sale
Christopher Ward watches, various discounts up to 50%.
I received the watch about an hour ago, I've given it a good look over and all is well, for the price paid(£199.50) its superb value. This malvern is a limited edition the number is 93/100. It has a beautiful metallic looking green dial, a see through case back with a decorated movement, it being a dress watch the screw down crown is a nice touch. It has a good quality leather strap with buckle, I would have preferred a deployment but hey they have some straps in the sale, something I haven't seen before are the quick release spring bars which will make strap changes very fast with no need for tools, once again thanks op for a great deal.
Just bought the C5 Malvern auto limited edition @ £199.50. Free postage op, you should put that in the title.
Those moonphases are absolute bargains
the fact this has gone cold is no reflection of the quality of this post!
