Here is a size comparison between the C65 41mm, C60 300 40mm and the C63 sealander 39mm.

Thank you very much, that is very informative. Before I saw the side-by-side comparison, I thought the C60 40mm was a very nice watch but one that I could wait on purchasing. I am rethinking my position, the bezel and the twin flags make a world of difference.

The 39mm C63 actually looks bigger than the 40mm C60 300!

There's smth that they really nailed with that 300. Im really thinking of ridding myself of both my Lympstone and my C63 GMT to pick a 300 white dial in 38mm. I barely wear the Lympstone and since I got my Grand Seiko GMT the C63 also just sits there. This 300 provides the perfect opportunity for streamlining the collection.

Often happens with a dive watch. Bigger bezel, smaller dial.

The C65 and C63 probably have the same diameter dial or close to it. The larger dial makes it visually larger even though it isn't. Another example how case dimensions don't tell the whole story.

^^^ Yep. My C63 auto wear bigger than my 40mm C60 600.

What I'd like to see is a 40mm C60 300 next to a 40mm C60 600 to see if the SS bezel ring affects the visual size.

I’m in a similar quandary but never sold a watch before so not confident I can get enough for my nearly new C60 600 to justify the change.

I sold my C63 Polar 6 months after I got it because it wore a tiny bit too small owing to the short L2L. The new C60 Trident Pro 300 fixes this problem and I'm definitely gonna jump, 90% sold on blue but I'm not ruling out white...

I may end up selling a few to get up the funds for a 40mm black dial on bracelet. I have a 40mm GMT C60 now, the Mk 3 600 version, but I think they’ll get along OK.

Yeah you probably are going to have to fork out additional cash, unfortunately. Selling my 2 watches may put me just over the break even mark for that 38mm, not really much better off than you.

Initial thoughts? I’m hoping there’s a short review in the works. I’d especially like to hear how you think it compares to the Aquitaine. Same shade of green?

EDITED TO ADD: …and how it stacks up to the C63.
