Congrats!!..I think it is something of a looker..I rec'd mine just a few days ago, as well..hmm, as much as I like it(and I do!), I have to say that the C65 Tridents(and I have several & another LE incoming) are different enough to warrant their own place in one's watch box(es)..I heartedly recommend them!!..hope you find some more room & wrist time for them!!.. :thumbup:
Ebels are a lot like women that lack a lowcut dress that zips up the side..neither gets the love that they deserve..

Yeah i see the c65 trident with the red bezel is in the current sale... very tempting given the quality of the Dartmouth.

I find the blue varies significantly depending on the light. It can be very dark, equally a vibrant blue

Agreed. Had to take a closer look to see that it wasn't a previously unseen black/white version

I don't own either (I only have the C65 as the Worldtimer), but I've always just looked at the Dartmouth and thought 'wow'.

Got both in the end as the trident was in the summer sale. I think the Dartmouth probably wins but really like both

I think that's a great shade of blue.

I’m since beginning to wish i went for the c65 trident - i love retro divers! Anyone have both or views on which is a better watch? I’m tempted to get both but they are fairly similar !
C65 for sure! 😬
