Thanks for taking the time to do that. :thumbup:

When you have time, It would be good to see a couple of pics taken outside in sunlight.

I really like the construction of the bezel, with the steel inner rim.

Thanks for posting. Do you happen to have any photos next to the green Aquitaine that your returned?

I'm sort of in the market for a green sports watch and having trouble deciding between the C60 Trident and the Aquitaine, both on bracelet. I like that the Aquitaine sort of sits on it's own a little better in a sea of divers. I like the vintage vibe. As for the C60 it looks to be nearly perfect in size and proportions. Love the thin case and improved lume. Hard to choose.

I don’t have any photos next to the Aquitaine. I’m not exaggerating when I say I swapped packages with the DHL guy. He gave me the Trident, I gave him the Aquitaine.

Here are some photos of both under dissimilar lighting conditions, though.

I do like both watches for different reasons. If I had bought the green Aquitaine before the blue I would’ve kept it. If I had infinite funds I would’ve kept it. But I realized I was wearing the blue more than the green and I wanted a Trident so I made the tough call.

Thanks for posting the photos. The green looks amazing on the Trident in the center photo. OK how about a wrist shot of the Aquitaine if you don't mind?

Nice write up on the Pro 300 Jameson ;)
Looks fantastic and definitely on my radar.

Appreciate it! Man that looks good too. I'm still torn. I really like the sunburst looks of the Aquitaine dial over the flatter look of the Trident dial and the sapphire bezel is very interesting, but there are several other things I prefer about the 300. Tough decision

Nice review and very well timed as I've just placed my order for a 42mm C60 Trident pro 300. It should be with me by the end of the month so looking forward to getting it on my wrist.

I think that's part of the problem. There's so much choice it's hard to pick just one. Even after you decide on the model you need need to select the size and colour.

I liked the Aquitaine when it first appeared, but I think the 300 Pro gives a different look, without the curved bezel, and for quite a bit less money, and that's just two of the range with more to come.

Thanks for the review and photos. Well done. Man I really wish I wore more green, or stuff that would go with green. It looks SO good, and the green 300 is my favorite color of this release, but I know I'd never wear it. I am waiting on the white to ship out instead.

Placed my order yesterday as I have mentioned. Got the 10% discount code as it was my first order so happy days. What landed in my in box this morning ? the loupe code for £100 off 😂 Not fussed, it's only £15. Reading a lot about my new watch & watching all the youtube vids I can find which just makes the wait for the delivery drivers knock on the door that bit more difficult to wait for.

Wonderful watch and thanks for sharing. I'm curious what your thoughts are on the taper to 16.5mm at the clasp. I'm ready to buy a 42mm model but am concerned about the taper. Thanks again!
