You know it’s a thumbs up from me! Looks great on the NATO.

Wearing on the bracelet today after sizing it last night. I’m not sure about this to be honest. The lack of any colour makes it look a bit washed out, and I think the end links are a little too long and protrude beyond the lugs.

This might have to be a colourful strap watch and the bracelet can go in the box.

It was also hard to read the time at 6am this morning. Despite having darkened hands, there is still very little contrast between them and the dial.

I think the jury is still out on this one if I’m honest. I’m not sure it’s a winner.

I’ve wanted to add this watch to my collection since it’s release in 2014, the C65 Trident Classic 43mm Automatic. May appear large compared to today’s drive for smaller case sizes but for clarity this watch is perfect.

One of the best of the C60 Trident Mk2s, Richard, but when did you actually get it?

Bought it off Ferg in 2019 but took delivery this Monday. The bracelet was resized yesterday at CW. The wait has been well worth it.

Top notch Richard & Ferg. :clap: :clap:

Not even CW's pre-orders stretch to circa three years. :shock: :shock:

I never purposely coordinate my 'look' (I'm just a real scruff in real life!), but sometimes I get lucky :lol:

Here's the Highlander working rather nicely with the blue trainers I popped on today.

That's a pity and I'm sorry you aren't totally smitten by it. I'd tried it on a couple of webbing zulus and a couple of coloured leather straps but ultimately my Anthropocene is my established favourite white non C60.
