Tide vs C60 Pro height

Post by Timishere »

Happy Saturday!

I've seen on the CW site that the Tide is about 0.7mm thicker than the 42mm C60 pro (~5%). Does anyone have a theory for why that may be? Is the crystal more domed on the former, or perhaps the bezel smaller?

Interesting to see a difference as lug to lug is the same.

The C60 crystal is flat, regardless of model.

Most likely difference in height will be due to different case back design.

The #tide has a # motif and tide material insert, compared to the regular embossed caseback of the standard C60.

Thanks both. So on the pro 600 does the crystal also stand proud of the bezel? It does on the #tide (which I got last week) so I was speculating that this was the diff.

Yes.

The C60 crystal is flat, and stands slightly proud of the bezel, regardless of model.

At first I thought the same as you, but on closer inspection the C60 Pro has a deeper bezel which accounts for the difference in height. To the naked eye the casebacks are similar in thickness.

I’ll do a side-by-side comparison tomorrow, either way the difference is marginal hence not really taking much notice.

As promised, not the best photograph but….

The difference between the the Pro (left) and the #tide (right) is marginal to the naked eye. The Pro has a deeper bezel and the #tide has a fractionally thicker caseback. I think much of the #tide design we will see on the on the MK4.

Hi Richard - thanks so much for going to the trouble of doing that. The proportions are definitely different even if the overall difference isn't. I guess the main change for mk4 is more the logo and date positioning respectively. Have CW confirmed somehow that the Tide will be the template for mk4?

Far from it.

I feel that is purely wishful thinking / speculation on Richard's part (his comment is prefixed with "I think . ." after all).

Happy to have helped.

Nothings has been said by CW, it’s only my thoughts based on how well the C60 #tide has been received. Feels like it’s a winning design.

Yes, it's a beauty. But feels chunkier than the C60 pro I had previously (bought and returned) hence my questions.
