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.
Yes, please see few posts above my comparison.
Is: C65 Chronograph, C60 Pro 600 mk3, C7 Rapide Chronograph Auto, Yema Traveller, Orient Mako 2, Certina DS Podium Powermatic 80,...
Was: C65 Trident Diver, C8 Flyer Automatic, C60 Trident 35 Engineer Regiment Edition, Orient Weekly King Diver,...

Submitted a request for a returns pack yesterday. Not heard anything. How long does it take to get a response and organise the courier? This is for an item purchased before Xmas.

Yesterday, it’s sale time. Give them a chance!! :D

The fact it was for an item before Christmas is, I think, irrelevant.

By the way! Just for info,

I submitted mine on Friday. Pack arrived Tuesday, sent back same day. Confirmation of receipt at 9.19am on Wednesday.

So pretty quick overall, now just awaiting refund.

That could indeed present a minor difficulty.

I think it will be :)
I ordered one which was delivered this morning, it is brand new with all stickers etc. But it’s a tad big on my wrist so planning to return it tomorrow.

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
I like this watch (a lot).

I have a quick question if possible. Did the version 1 have a unidirectional bezel and is this the easiest way to see if the watch is V1 or V2? I have one sat on my desk which I fully powered up (about 90 winds) and now it's driving me crazy not being able to wear it as I'm timing how long it takes to stop and see what its power reserve is.

Anyway just to say I find it a marvellous watch and one I know will get plenty of wrist time

Stay safe

oh and just to add and the same as Guy wrote, it's incredible how light it feels to wind, at first I thought it was in the wrong position and wasn't winding but it's because its the lightest feel of any watch I own :-)

Full refund just received, back into bank account via PayPal.

They said it would take 3-5 working days, took 2 days 6 hours from receipt of email confirming they had it.

Great service :clap:

That’s cool.
Can I please check - How to initiate the returns process please?
When I click on the link for the return from it just takes me to a page which doesn’t have any form. May be I am not looking at the right place.

Thanks in advance
