I think it would be interesting to see the C60 Sapphire with a gold or red translucent dial. I like the blue but there are just so many blue-faced watches out there.

I’m more partial to dress-oriented watches over dive and sport models. My preference, though, seems against the tide.

I liked the C60 40mm Sapphire but there's only so much room for blue watches in my life. 3 is enough :)
And yet I’m struggling to find a blue dialled watch that I like all aspects of and can justify the cost enough to buy as it wouldn't be my main wear but I'd like to have 1.

So maybe a C65 41mm case with a dark navy dial that doesn’t have round markers, isn’t as busy on the dial or bezel as the Dartmouth or recent blue Chrono, can be a 3 hander or 2 or 3 sub-dialled Chrono (but not with the big screw down crown and pushers), doesn’t use orange or a plethora of other colours and doesn’t have “vintage” lume. Oh, and of course for me the name at 12o’clock.

Alternatively a nice simple dark blue dialled version of the Sandhurst but with white hands and markers.

I could get on board with that with a white dial!

I'm with you on the color varieties for the C60 sapphire! I would love a yellow or orange dial one - could call it the "OJ" :D But more colors in general I think would be a big hit among enthusiasts and the general public.

Something like the Birkin's Blower that looks like it will fly off the shelf :lol: ( They really can't get rid of it)

I’m not sure about this. A couple of C60/ C65 variants perhaps, but it would be good to see innovation and to extend the range beyond the diver focus

I'd like to see a C65 in bronze with a blue face and blue bezel.

I'd also like to see a C60 in bronze with a blue face and blue bezel.

I think both these prototypes sold in the recent sale?

I'm a sucker for bronze/gold hue and blue & blue.

Did someone say bronze and blue?

I came across this about 60 seconds after reading your post. Bronze and blue make for a beautiful combination!

I agree about a red dial (well, a deep red). I think orient did well with the red Kamasu/Mako3, and I noticed Marc at Long Island is now doing a similar red. I think a deep green would do well also, Aquis green rather than Hulk green.

That might be the best single line I’ve read on this forum! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Put me on the waiting list, especially if there are any 3-handers.

A mark 3 Trident with the brand name at 12 o'clock so I can finally bring myself to buy one?

+1

I like everything about the Mk3, especially the fully lumed bezel, but won't/can't buy 1 due to the 9o'clock name logo.
