What condition was it in when it arrived, from memory it looked like it had a few scratches on the case back when it went on sale?
There are scratches on the case back but otherwise it's in very good condition
The bracelet is new and having the 'bad QC/good CS' motif on it

Hopefully CWL won't do a production run for these C60s. There was a premium for uniqueness :D

Excellent news - it was a bit of a gamble at that price point In my eyes, as it did look like it may have had a hard life.
Glad you like it and it's in good condition - scratches on the back case are a minor issue anyway.
Current collection incl Alpina, Citizen, Eterna, Oris, Rado, Seiko & Tag.

Old watch, new strap...
Image
My white dial C60 hasn't been getting much love this year. I've been wanting a dressy white dial watch on a leather strap for a long time, and I can't afford a new watch currently, but I can afford a strap. Went with a CW brand oak leather piece, sized extra-small. It feels like a completely different watch now.

^^looks good Eric :thumbup:

A well thought out strap can often revitalise and refresh a watch, lower cost option too than buying yet another watch :D

Whilst I'm partial to a nice bracelet, I'm finding it hard to take my white Trident off the black leather strap that it's currently on. It just looks so right to me! :thumbup:

Indeed, I was hesitant to marry a dive watch with a leather strap — I always felt they belong on a bracelet — but I think that white dial pairs with leather very nicely.
