Getting a headache just looking at the dial. If it rocks your boat go for it but don’t let me see it, thank you.

Not for me, face too busy but for an SE its a good price. Do "desk divers" need to 'decompress'? is that why i'm always tired after a hard day at the desk?? :lol: :thumbup:

Interesting to see all those other examples, although not my cup of tea to be honest.

I like the color palette! It’s thin, manual wind, relatively inexpensive…there’s a lot to like.

Somehow though when I focus on the dial, it can look both too busy and too bland? And I would never use the features. Still, what a great set of colors. I’m sure at this price they won’t have an issue selling the 150.

Will anyone? Probably as much use as a helium escape valve to the majority of purchasers but still a nice feature if that's your thing.It's not my taste, but I'm sure with only 150 made they'll either sell out quickly, or be in the sale after next.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left

+1 to all those.

But hands up all those who need yet another dive watch. :problem:

Touché. The unique feature could certainly be useful as a conversation starter.

Do any of us really need a watch at all? :problem: It’s a sickness.

The Divetimer caught my eye. If they remain in stock until the next $125 off voucher, I will be seriously tempted.

Oh, Does anyone know if the Divetimer will work with the bracelet for the Vintage Diver?

^^^^ I'll advocate that won't happen as the lack of a £100 / $125 voucher has already been factored into the price, and some.

If there are any left when the next voucher pops up, they will be pulled from sale.

Which 'Vintage Diver' as there is no model in the range of that name?

I posted this in another thread a week or so ago;-

There's a C65 Trident Vintage Mk II Automatic - 38mm case, 20mm lug width.

or a C65 Trident Diver - 41mm case, 22mm lug width.

Links are to the CWArchive.

Either way; for the C65 Trident Vintage MkII Automatic you need the C65 Bracelet Trident Mk2 38mm from CW . .

or for the C65 Trident Diver you need the C65 Bracelet Trident Mk2 41mm from CW


Does this help?

I just have a sneaking suspicion this is going to look much nicer in the metal than the pictures show.

Thought I’d take a chance on one just have some ‘quality time’ with it at home :)

A few hours ago they had just listed the divetimer with the tide straps, but there were no pictures. Now, all the divetimer listings have been removed. Did it sell out already?

I was chatting with someone at CW yesterday afternoon and they said they were selling at such a rate that they might be gone by yesterday evening.
So I'd assume that means they're all gone
