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.

Missed this the other day. If I can get a few minutes away from work today I'll grab some.

Honestly it's something I don't even notice. The bracelet feels as good or better than previous models, and it looks appropriate to me.

Try to ignore the bezel being off by one minute.

^^^ Thanks. :thumbup:

Looks rather good. I am still trying to work out if it is the same green as the Jura Green Sealander LE. It looks slightly different.

Will get around to paying CW a visit over the next couple of months and check out all the new models.

Hard to say. I wonder if emailing Declan would possibly get us some side-by-sides of the colors in the various ranges. Aquitaine vs. Trident vs. Sealander

I’m looking forward to some wrist shots of the 40mm in black. I think the taper to 16 is a winner.

After looking at a few pictures I am still concerned the taper to 16.5mm is just too much. Gonna pass on this one.

I've discovered the meaning of frustration. I received an email from DPD this morning telling me my watch had been delivered to my next door neighbours. Nothing unusual in that i agree but I'm 150 miles away on holiday and not due back home until Saturday afternoon. Ahhhgggg !!!!!!!!

Usually when people have courier stories to tell it’s because a watch has gone AWOL somewhere in the vicinity of a stationary WIS. I think we all need to note that for once the watch is stationary where it should be and the WIS is AWOL! :D

How did you know it was received by your neighbor?

In the US DHL emailed confirming delivery my C60 Trident Pro 300 but I looked outside my door and it wasn't there. When I checked DHL's online delivery confirmation they had a picture of my package sitting outside a door number matching mine but I could tell it wasn't my door. So I went on a scavenger hunt of neighboring buildings and found my package sitting outside another door at the wrong street address. Was lucky to get it without further hassle, at least I won the scavenger hunt! :clap:

That is really lucky! I live on a street with house names rather than numbers. I quite often get the "you were out" message by email when I've been at home all day. Always because the courier is so pressed for time they can't look for our house. Takes ages to get hold of anyone, but if you don't the cycle repeats.

I had this same problem with US DHL. I was particularly frustrated, because I had left instructions for opening the dog gate on the front porch - there was no gate or even a porch on the house to which it was delivered. Fortunately, from the delivery picture I recognized the house where it had been dropped off.
