Love the look of the White dial with the orange strap. It is not available in 38mm though from what I can see. 42mm only?

Strange indeed! It looks good on that leather. As others have noted, I find the strap options perplexing.

I think CW ought to offer a service at time of purchase whereby for a modest fee ($10 maybe?) you could swap out to a non-standard strap. I understand why they don’t offer every possible strap combination, but I’d rather pay a small fee for a swap than buy on a less than ideal strap only to be replaced later.
I agree, and suggested this on the "What would make CW better" thread. When I bought my JS watch, they did exactly this. Multiple strap books came out. Book 1 was straps included in the retail price, the other books were various premium straps. Such a great idea for personalizing your new watch.

Black and white are available in 38 just not with the orange strap. For whatever reason CW isn't making any of the tropic strap options in 20 mm. Get the watch on the Hybrid strap and source a 3rd party orange tropic.

EDIT to add - the Hybrid straps are great.

Is the bezel 'shiny' or brushed? It looks like it has a matte finish. Looks great BTW.

Unfortunately the white dials are delayed. I received this earlier


Thank you for your purchase of the C60 Trident 300 - 40mm White.



Sadly, due to unforeseen production delays of the dials from our suppliers, we have been forced to delay the delivery date of your order.



We have been in contact with our Merchandising team who have proposed moving the despatch date from Early September to End September.



Please accept our sincerest apologies, we appreciate that you will be eagerly awaiting your timepiece. Please know that we are doing our best to obtain the dials as quickly as we can.

I just called CW to check on this issue since I have a 42mm white dial on order expected 9/10 but haven't received any notice of delay. They confirmed it was only some of the 40mm orders that are being delayed and if you haven't received a notice it should still be on schedule. I feel badly for those impacted by the delay. :(

Wonderful slim profile. :D Exactly what was needed IMO.

Can anyone with a 40mm or 38mm new C60 300 measure the dial/crystal diameter? I'm trying to decide between the two sizes and feel sometimes the dial diameter gives a better impression of how large (or small) a watch appears on wrist.
