(What) Kind of Blue?

Post by jkbarnes »

Please forgive the cheesy Miles Davis reference in the thread title.

By my count (and to my aging eyes) CW now offers six different shades of blues:
  • C60 Trident blue
  • C65 Dartmouth blue
  • C65 Trident Vintage blue
  • 2 C65 Super Compressor blues
  • and now C63 Sealander blue
Have I missed any?

Could anyone who has two or more of these watches post a side-by-side, well lit picture of them? Or even better, if someone happens to make a trip to Maidenhead, get a side-by-side of all of them!? I really want to be able to compare the shades of blue.

C65 Chrono?

i know it has 2 x sub dials but it's mainly blue.

Sapphire ?

It's likely that I will go to the Showroom to compare the tide watch to the Sealander, and maybe other blue dials, but unlikely for maybe a week or two.

If or when I do go I'll post any photos.

These are screen grabs from the wrist shots on the CW website of the Dartmouth and Sealander.

If they used a similar lighting set up for each, then they at least represent a like for like comparison.

They don’t look that different to me.

How about the C60 #tide and C60 Sapphire?

Both are blue.

I completely forgot about those. I think they didn’t register with me because they’re not your “basic dial” kind of watch, if that makes any sense.

They look pretty similar to me too... I think it looks kind of flat on the Sealander. Maybe the busier dial of the Dartmouth breaks it up enough to make it seem like a more interesting shade of blue.
