Thank you, it really is a wonderful watch that I like it quite a lot, as may be evident in some other posts on it.

Looks good on brown leather but even better, and more appropriate for a diver, on a bracelet. Would be better still with synchronised second and minute hands! Nice picture.

Gent; please remember that both mine and Welshlad's C60 are Khaki bezel, so dark brown strap complements well.

I've tried mid / light brown / tan as well and they are not a good combination; although a black / sand NATO does look good.

Thanks. My other 4 Tridents are all on waterproof straps befitting a diver, so the Khaki is on leather to give a bit of a change.

The second and minute hands ARE synchronised, it's the angle in the photo that makes them look like they're not.

Thanks, I did wonder about that. I've been looking at my Scooter this morning from slightly different angles and the synchronisation remains intact. Perhaps someone might know why a photo distorts the image?

And relax!

My OCD about second and minute hands is not unique!

Scooter a brilliant watch. IMO falls into the iconic CW category and certainly one of the CW grails for many....well for 50 people the grail status is achieved.

Really wish that I had gone for the orange GMT, rather than the black. Great watch. Love the pebble too! :D
