Possible indication of how the recessed twin flag logo might look.....(from latest loupe magazine, on the new Morgan watch)

I think we are actually looking at late May or June.

I'm off to the showroom tomorrow - returning a 2017 FLE and looking at the new Blue Trident, comparing it to my Scooter blue.
I'll see what they have re. the C65 and others.

^^^ Especially curious if they plan to do a non-bezel version of the vintage diver. Certainly something is in the works to replace the 43mm C65's? Hopefully something in the 41mm range.

They discontinued the C60 Vintage so must not have been a big seller. Hopefully they will also have a version of the C65 diver with non-vintage colors/lume.

Not necessarily, could simply be that a new vintage diver would cannibalize the sales of the C60 vintage diver so may as well clear them out. Feel like I see quite a few of the vintage C60's around here.

Don't disagree with this one. I don't mind the new logo and think the recessed twin flags will look great at 12, but a crisp bright white logo with aged lume can look a bit odd.

I've was told today at the Showroom that there are no plans for a non-bezel Vintage diver as the C65 Vintage edition 38mm non (or smooth) bezel is still in their range.

The new C65 Vintage Diver will be released early May (possibly as early as 1st May) as stated in other recent posts, hand wound 41mm, rotating bezel, probably a few colours.

Unfortunately there were no watch bodies available to view as they were off-site being photographed and I'm not sure they would have shown any even if they were there as I got the impression it's still "under the wraps" at the moment but I understand that the look will be similar to the existing C65 re. shape of hands, as can probably be seen anyway from the bits shown in photos in Loupe.

There will be a GMT version released later that will be a little thicker, have a fixed bezel, a couple or a few colour variations with contrasting GMT hand.

Cheers for the info. It’s the GMT I’m holding out to see, but purely on the basis of being an automatic. Hand wound just doesn’t appeal to me at all for some reason. A little disappointed that the GMT will be fixed bezel though
