Not my taste at all.

But, there will be people who will like it and buy it however.

I really do like it. 👍

I like it but can't help thinking it would have been much better with a bronze bezel rather than the black ceramic.

Seems to be £995 for all variations (before discounts).
Personally would prefer the glossy ceramic bezel and not the matt sandblasted variant but still think it's a nice watch albeit expensive.

Think it looks brilliant. Wasn't sure at all from prior previews but think this will sell well.

Is the bezel blue or black?

If I didn’t have a bronze C60 I’d be all over this. As it is, I may just buy a strap. 🙂

That's better looking in the full photo than I thought it would be having only seen snippets in the previous photos.

I'm hoping the style of the bezel with numbers from 5 onwards is how CW intend bezels to be on any new Trident version.

Not keen on Bronze watches as a rule, but I'm liking this one - although I still need a bit more persuasion on the face.

I sit firmly in the black bezel fan camp on this. It adds much needed contrast to the overall package.
It also makes it a bit different from the previous bronze releases.

I had zero intention of buying this, though I have been waiting/watching for a bronze that at first impulse made me think "I need that." I am generally not into Bronze watches or pre-distressed things, but this looks great to me and ticks some boxes for me that I didn't know I had. Had the voucher to use on something, so why not, right? Glad it came out in time for getting the discount.

If you're in the US, it is GBP 680 or US$ 872 so $263 discount from the regular $1,135 price when you order through the UK website with the 150CW18 promo code. Probably similar savings for other countries.

And I learned a new word today..

Ombré : having tones of color that shade into each other, graduating from light to dark.

I liked the bezel on the regular C60 Bronze but didn't like the dial. It is the other way around with this Ombre. There is always something, eh?

I’m still on the fence after seeing it. Not sure which is the best strap either.

Undecided about which strap, but I'll definitely be having one of these. I really like the contrast between the dial, bezel and case.
