Pete's home for classic C60 GMT watches

Post by tikkathree »

Somebody in a Facebook CW group thought they didn't want this lovely watch any more: a bit of spit n'polish, refitted the oem bracelet and baddabingbaddaboom!

That's another itch scratched :lol:

It came on an orangey-yellow webbing & leather strap but the bracelet just needed a scrub, a quick polish and resizing up to my wrist.
Keeps good time too!

The last owner is being sporting enough to say he now regrets yadayada... :yawn: :yawn:
Thanks Andrew!

Ah, I have a soft spot for the orange-bezelled C60 Trident GMT Mk1, as that was my first ever CW watch, bought just over 10 years ago. It's got a lot to answer for since! :)

I also had the black-bezelled version, but never the orange blobs version.

It's good to see these getting a run-out again. :thumbup:

Your first ever? Do you still have it?
I like the C60 Mk1 rather a lot. The C60 black chronometer is one of my list of serial bought/flipped/regretted/bought again watches. In a perverse way I'm glad not to have scooped the orange blob when they weren't selling a few years ago but now it/they have a secure future. I like also to turn them over and note how case back designs became more complex.

Sadly not. I sold it back in 2014 to another forum member. :(

I still have mine. There are also some excellent photos of the Pepsi variant in the Reference Gallery.

My first watch was the C60-GMT-SKKO, (Black with orange) and still love the older design, also have some Kingfishers too that don't look too shabby either;-)

In my eyes the Kingfishers C6 and C60 will never be shabby.
