I will add that I ordered a NN Super Compressor 15 days ago, and after noting that my order status remained "being prepared for dispatch" for 12 days, while all of you were already receiving and in some cases returning their NN items, I finally shot CW a "I'm very disappointed in you" email last Friday. It has finally been dispatched and I will hopefully get it next Monday.

I'm really not sure how they could have overlooked my order when it's presumably all logged into their system.

Oh man… hope it’s an under promise/over deliver situation!
Thanks Alex,

Just heard from CW, watch allocated to a technician. Sounds like it may be quicker than I thought or dared to hope.

Ordered c.06:45hrs Zulu yesterday, dispatched c.12:15hrs Zulu. Delivered within 24hrs.

C60 13 Air Assault (Support Regiment RLC).

The bezel is a standard CW dark red polished ceramic (more like burgundy) which is very fitting for a Red Beret unit.

I served in the Royal Corps of Transport, forerunner to the Royal Logistics Corps, and have a C7 MkI 47 Air Dispatch Sqn, which is now part of 13 Air Assault Regt.

It will be on my wrist this afternoon.

I have one on its way to the states as I type. I'm excited to see some pictures of it in the wild. The bracelet looks darker on the website than the standard Trident. Is that the case?

No.

Its a standard red bezel Trident in all respects bar the Parachute Regiment logo @ 12 on the dial and the bespoke case back.

Now on my wrist; I've yet to size the bracelet although one of my other Trident C60 bracelets will fit.

That is a nice one! And fitting to have the personal connection. Were it not a 42, I’d have been far more tempted. Great surprise to find in the sale.

Arrived at allotted time.

Very, very happy. A pristine example of a NN watch. Tide strap still had the tissue paper over the ends. Doesn’t wear as small as I thought being 39mm. So it’s a keeper.

Won’t use Tide tho, I’m after a black/orange hybrid like Steve’s. Until then, I have it on a 2-piece James Bond NATO from WIAA (Josh)

I missed the hybrid in the sale, so still on the look out. All sort of options in my 20mm strap box but none quite fit the bill. Ironically a couple of better options in the 22mm box.☹️

Very happy, in the end, with turnaround. Let’s hope it a keeper 🤞🏻

Watch arrived, with speck of dust removed.

As with my Sealander GMT, it’s another NN now in pristine condition.

And it’s a keeper, looks great in Black/Blue (C60 Pro 40mm)
