Disappointing - the first teaser led my hopes in completely the wrong direction. 36mm too small for me

Disappointing. Nice looking, but not for me. Going to hold off for an updated C60 300 for my first CW. An updated dial even might have made me consider this.

On the same page. I have the 39mm GMT and even on my 16cm wrist it's the size it's supposed to be and I'm sure the 36mm 3 hander the same.
I have a few pieces 36 or thereabouts, but simple things and they work like that.

For me this is one of those "answers to questions nobody was asking". A rare mis-fire by CW in my opinion.

What kind of update are you looking for on the C60 Trident Pro 300? Updated dial?

It was only released 18 months or so ago (2022/08) so wouldn't be due a nip & tuck for a couple of years at least.

It is just a smaller version of an existing watch. Nothing wrong with that. It gives people choice.

Whilst I am certainly not in the “oh 36mm is far too small camp” (I have a few 36mm three handers that are favourite watches), for a technical bezel watch I prefer a 39mm-41mm case size.

Ah that means I could just buy the 39mm Sealander GMT instead, with no drama about “36mm being too small”, if I didn’t already have the 39mm model.

Yes, an updated dial would be great. Or better still, a GMT function, like the Anthropocene, in 40mm with the existing dials. New to this world, so forgive my ignorance on possibilities and expectations!

If I did not already have my BB36 and my 38mm Trident 600 GMT, I might be interested.

Is it too small or not to have GMT hand? I don't think so. The pictures look fine.

I'm pretty happy with my 3-hander Ball EH which is 34mm (ETA 2892-2) and has a pretty chunky rotating bezel. It's not hard to read. An increase of 2mm in the diameter is significant and I'm sure the addition of a 4th hand will be fine.

The watch itself is not for me, but it looks really nice.
. . . .and Loupe 32 is now available to read / download in the CWArchive.

i can understand CWs focus on price. but why no COSC option GMT?

would that be prohibited more expensive?

Could be referencing the "Ultimate" Trident Pro 300 per page 11 of the latest Loupe.

Reading into that article more do you think this one will be a 600m, Titanium diver?
My wife thinks I have a watch problem. I'm a glass half-full guy, I think of it as a healthy interest in horology ;)
