Had a walk around Springfield’s outlet shopping centre near Spalding today, not a place I frequent normally, but was surprised to see that Earnest Jones have a shop there with a large section of ex display watches for sale :shock:
Amongst the run of the mill watches they sell at discounted prices there was a Pelagos @ £2700, Deville about a grand off, a number of Breitling’s,Bell & Ross and Longines. Not sure how much of a bargain they are but I spent a good hour talking to a young lady and a lad who really tried to engage with me about watches, not sure about their knowledge but they were very pleasant and really tried hard which I appreciate :thumbup:

HSJohnson has some Elliot Browns in their sale (again), some as little as half price, with an extra 5% off using the code “5POP5”.

EB has a few fans in the forum, I’m quite interested in a Canford at under £167, but can’t see it being worn much... 😢

They had some great bargains
...and, having just checked, some of the higher end brands have been snapped up.
Still some EBs available though.

P.S. I might have inadvertently snapped some thing up :oops:

I should after keeping you there for an hour they were perhaps hopeful that they'd be catching a glimpse of your plastic.
I could have succumbed to the Pelagos on 0% over 6 months :oops:

Recently I've picked up a couple of cheap, homage-style watches from Aliexpress, mostly to see if a particular watch style suits me wrist before chasing down a "real one". It's not as if I spend every night of the week socialising so I'm hoodwinking no-one with these.

Some of them are proving to be very good watches on the wrist, they look and feel good and they keep acceptable time.

Aliexpress have a big sale starting on June 21st and there are some big savings to be had on watches which don't cost a lot to begin with: think of it as saving your money to spend at CW.

Hamilton Khaki for $299.00!!!..

When it comes to Swiss mechanical field watches, no company does it better than Hamilton. It’s why I’m making the Khaki Field Men’s Automatic my CEO Pick of for this Month.

This timepiece brings the most desirable features of a contemporary watch while maintaining a timeless aesthetic. The stainless steel case is bold yet very wearable at 42mm in diameter with a 22mm lug width that adds to the overall wrist presence. The crystal is scratch resistant sapphire and there’s an exhibition case back showcasing Hamilton’s H-10 automatic Swiss movement which boasts a sizable 80-hour power reserve. If you put it away for the weekend, it’ll still be ticking on Monday.

The watch is durable enough for almost any outdoor adventure and features a water resistance of 100 meters. That being said, it’s certainly refined enough for weekdays in the office or a night on the town. It secures to the wrist via a handsome yet robust beige canvas strap with steel double pin buckle. Hamilton is well known for high quality, affordable mechanical field watches and this is no exception, available for a special price of only $299 with code CEOPICK. That’s a steal for a watch that retails for $745 (and ShopWorn price of $495).
