Alas, I was unable to locate any 13mm (as you might imagine they are quite rare!) but I did find a clip of British .55 Boys which isn't too different. The 13mm was 1mm wider and flared out more towards the base. Also, there was no belt as there is here, but a simple rim. The C60 is still looking great to me and providing sterling service. I was a little uneasy about the placement of the date window at first but am happily oblivious to it now. I actually wear it to work quite a bit despite the fact that I bought the C9 GMT for that! If only there was a Trident that had a second time zone... :wink:

Thanks!!!

Huge round, awesome....... loved both pics! The date never realy bothered me and you end up getting used to it.....wear it in good health

Btw did you get to fire any of those?

On-topic, Still with the C60 on Nato.

Cheers,
Sifion.
A watch of appropriate calibre.....

I do shoot a lot but mostly shotguns, pistols, or my African and big game guns, not much of the really BIG military stuff...they hurt! One of my colleagues has a 20mm Solothurn and it is brutal. Ultra-cool but any rifle that needs 2 - 3 people just to move it doesn't do anything with subtlety! It's not the recoil so much as the concussion over several shots. It WOULD be a good test of any watch's shock resistance though!

You're obviously having a better day than me! :(

I have calls to the UK to make today so I thought it would be appropriate to wear my very first CWL watch. :thumbup:

Outing to local watch shop for sizing: then back to the box.

This is a very difficult watch to photograph....I know, I have one. You have done very well to produce this image.

Thank you! I usually take these in my office and all I really do is try to tilt my wrist so the crystal is reflecting the ceiling BETWEEN the florescent light panels. This tends to eliminate reflections and brighten the dial at the same time.
