Re: Logo convert and an observation.

Horses for courses. I was determined not to like it and posted some pretty negative things about it when it came out. I got the Mk III C3 and thought I didn't like it, but that was more to do with the chronograph function and legibility. Then I tried the C65 diver. No problem. It just ceased to matt...

Re: Does trident MK3 GMT wear large compared to regular?

If you are able to go to 41mm, the height of the C65 GMT is 12.05 mm as opposed to the 13.35 mm of the C60 Mk III GMT.

You may not feel that is an option for your wrist, but the C65 divers don't wear large and at 71g for the watch head there is very little weight difference.

Re: If Carlsberg made watches to be unloved.......

A couple of factors perhaps affecting this… Firstly, the excitement engendered by Trident 3 has possibly caused interest in the older styles to wane. Having said that, I suspect that if they were offered in any forthcoming sale at a tasty price they wouldn’t be around for too long. Secondly, there h...

Foul day but I did a gym/supermarket run into Norwich. Thoroughly enjoyed it and didn't attempt a single emergency stop with the non-existent clutch. :D

Re: Manual or auto? (But not watches)

Thread revival - picked it up this morning. Very nice. Pity it's not a day for joy-ride!

Many thanks to Tiger Chris and all others who made very helpful suggestions. :D

Re: C65 divers or GMT owner experience

To answer my own question, I’ve done a bit of additional research, and evidently this is normal behavior for a number of hand-wind watches (including Speedmasters). It’s part of the click mechanism and helps keep the watch from being over-wound. My 2 previous hand-winders just haven’t had it so not...
