The problem is that the size is 43mm. On a 38 to 40mm watch, the logo would look better suited. The 43mm Trident was designed before the logo change, so the gap at the top is huge. Adding it to the C60 was something of an afterthought; unfortunately.
Fixed the empty space problem :silent:

Received today. Really happy with it and especially the Bader clasp. I picked up a spare brown strap but really wanted the camel Bader which is back ordered currently. Oh well. Next time.
The blue hands are a bit darker and more metallic than I had pictured but over all very pleased.
That is a very handsome face. What do you mean by "metallic"? To shiny because it was chemically treated and not blued by heat?

Due to the two sides of the hands being beveled the blue can pop or disappear depending on the viewing angle and definitely the light source. Quickly took a pick outside to illustrate. I am quite smitten with this watch as it is a good size for me, dressy but not boring and a pretty slim height for an auto. Looking forward to trying out the brown strap soon. The deployment buckle is brilliant. Good watch for business travel. Four days a week I am dressed up at the office so this will get some good wrist time :)

I still think that's the best strap I've seen for that watch...
Cheers Gary. Got a hunch that Steveo has stopped making it.

Perhaps he got his 'collar felt' by Martin Baker?
