What JAFO said above is likely correct.

HOWEVER… they also sell separate bracelets for the 38mm C60 and the 40mm C60, and I can confirm they both fit either watch just fine, and I can’t tell the difference.

You wouldn’t know for sure unless you tried.

These Sellita movements, which I am not a fan of at all, will not advance the date correctly if the date was set in the timeframe during which you are not supposed to set the time. You can advance the time and the date will just keep advancing not centered in the window.

I moved it out of the undesirable timeframe, reset the date, and now it advances correctly. It’s just not a very well engineered movement and takes patience.

But I’m letting it run till tomorrow and see if the timekeeping and date change work correctly. I hope they do because it’s a killer little watch. I really like it.
This exact thing happened with my NN C60 tide - after one day the date window was sat uncentred and only half visible. I reset it, tested it and have let it run for 48 hours - it now appears to be working perfectly.

Might need to keep it! :D
Mine is running +5 and the date is setting correctly so I’m keeping it.

I love the size. I’m really digging smaller watches lately. But I do still like the detail that I can see in the face of my bigger watches.

I would suggest that the Clearance will continue to run as returns as received..

I’ve received confirmation email that my Abyss is back at CW Towers.

I don't think so. If you check the bracelets on the CW site (in straps), there is a distinct C65 chronograph bracelet £165, as are all the bracelets. The bracelet for the handwound is called the C65 41mm bracelet, I think. Certainly not too expensive for such an expensive watch, and they are super bracelets. Maybe CW would give you some discount if you just bought the chronograph. It's probably just different end links, so maybe CW could sell you chronograph end links, although then you would still have just 1 bracelet.
Thanks. I was afraid of this answer.
If I'll keep the Chrono version (should come tomorrow), then I would sell the manual on leather as the bracelet was bought separately later. So Chrono endlinks would save me some cash. I'm gonna check with CW.

The Chrono case is thicker to accommodate the movement. So the end links on the bracelet are thicker. It would be pretty noticeable I think.

It won’t hurt to just throw the bracelet on both and check. I’d be interested to see pics of the fit on each watch.

C65 Chrono just arrived. Very nice watch!
And the bracelet from Trident Divers does (not) fit. I mean it can be attached properly and everything, but it doesn't look good. The Chrono case is indeed a bit thicker...

My C60 Abyss GMT V2 arrived yesterday, I resized the bracelet last night and got the watch up and running (time & GMT set) this morning.

Some observations;-

Bracelet - This is the latest bracelet with 2/3rds links; all my previous C60 bracelets have been the 'old' version.

The difference is the 'old' bracelet had 6 + 6 links for which, to fit my 7.5" wrist, I would remove one link on the 6 o'clock section.

The 'new' bracelet has 6 + 5 + 2x2/3rds links, with one of the 2/3rds links in each section. It was therefore a simple task to remove both of the 2/3rds links, to give me 6 + 5 and a perfect fit.

Bezel - as part of the V2 spec (presumably) this is bi-directional.

Movement - This is stated on CW's website as being Sellita SW330-2 with 42 hours Power Reserve (which should be 56 hours if the movement stated is correct).

It does indeed have the SW330-2 as far as I can tell.

I've not tested the PR but from the feel of the crown / movement when winding and adjusting it is so light and smooth, especially the GMT hand, that it has to be the SW330-2. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Bottom line; if you're considering getting a C60 Abyss GMT in the Sale / Clearance get the V2 version. As I write there is still one listed.

Guy, the movement should be marked near the balance wheel. You will need a good loupe and to get the rotor out of the way, but my Sealander GMT certainly says SW330-2 quite clearly.

I’d love to see a photo of the case. If it was all black I’d be all over this. What puts me off is the case being too light in colour for my tastes. However, your comments are making me look at this again.

The C65 Chrono uses a different bracelet than the Trident Diver. The Diver endlink is thinner so it will not be flush to the top of the Chrono case. The Chrono and C65 AM GT share the same bracelet.
