Thats such a great watch there Mezzame, i'm buying my first CW at the end of the month and i'm torn between this one and the black/white number markers GMT.

This has maybe pushed me towards orange

I'll keep you posted :)

Nice shots there. Am I correct in thinking there are 3 different lume colours on this watch? Very pretty :)

Very nice pictures. Another question if I may..........Is the 24 hour hand red or orange?

Gracias - it appears orange to to me but not an exact match to the markers. I had read here, prior to buying, that someone was put off by the "red" GMT hand. My first reaction was that it certainly is not red. And in different lighting it can get confusing. Was it changed recently? Wera knows all.

Happy accident - long exposure after letting the CO sun light it up.

For the photogs here: ISO 200 / 50mm / f 2.8 / 14sec. post = straighten/crop/edge sharpen only.

Cheers. I reckon they've always been orange, although the original CW website pictures made the 24 hour hand appear red. I just looked back at an old review (one of the first to hit the forum), and that also appears to be orange (http://www.christopherwardforum.com/vie ... f=5&t=6828)

I don't think the orange markers are lumed but they do stand out. Thanks.

For what it's worth I actually ordered the Orange bezel and switched to the SKS. I do like the classic look of the B/W but if I were to buy another Trident I'd get a Pro I think - new Charcoal available soon I see.

I always thought the orange was actually lume......you can definitely see the orange in the dark, but it is not as bright as the green/blue lume.

Great pics by the way!
