Very nice. What was in goodie bag?
A mug, a service pod and a 38mm C60.
Was there really a C60 in each goodie bag, or is this a joke?!
Might encourage a few more people to attend the next GTG :lol:

Here's a screenshot from the GTG video. Not a great picture, but gives you and idea what it looks like with the black dial.

Thanks.

Swap locations of the name and the flags and that would be a very balanced dial.

Re: C65 Trident Diver Automatic

Were any indicative prices given for this or the other new watches shown at the GTG? Mick, just reading about the watch in the latest edition of Loupe. The article mentions that the auto (SW200 movement) will sell at exactly the same price as the handwound. Thanks Patrick. That sounds like good val...

Re: C65 Trident Diver Automatic

Normally I prefer baton hour markers to blobs but that is a really nice looking watch. The bezel looks less busy with just numbers on it and but for my usual problem with what's at 9o'clock it would probably get my money especially in the blue. Were any indicative prices given for this or the other ...

Re: C65 Trident Diver Automatic

Not sure if we are allowed to post pictures of this yet, but I thought it looks fantastic. Similarities to the Oris Divers 65, but they admit that in Loupe. Perhaps unfortunate coincidence that they share the numerals '65'. I thought the round indexes wouldn't look as good as the rectangular ones, ...

Re: Edinburgh GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 19th January 2019

^^^C65 Pepsi GMT...very nice! Not for me, I’m afraid. I prefer the high gloss look of the C60 ceramic bezels. Does everyone like it, or am I the first dissenters? :D I don't like it either (see my prior post) although maybe for slightly different reasons to you. Not having the high gloss ceramic be...

Re: Edinburgh GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 19th January 2019

I’m part way through watching the YouTube link and am very interested by the Trident 3 - potentially a more sculpted case design like the C65, but as robust as a C60 and with exceptional lume, that’s got to be a winner! My only prayer is that they have a choice in case sizes as they do now with som...

Re: Edinburgh GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 19th January 2019

I wish I could be more positive about remaining a buying customer. I remember that feeling a few years ago when they didn't seem to produce anything I liked. It happens from time to time. I compromised on a couple of sticking points and they developed the range. Thanks for the pep talk but unfortun...

Re: Edinburgh GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 19th January 2019

Oh well, looks like my 2019 watch budget is fairly safe from any CW purchases. The Pepsi GMT is a nice looking version of this type of watch but personally I can't understand the attraction of a combination of black dial with red and blue bezel, whether it's from CW, Tudor, Rolex or whoever else. Th...

Re: An appeal to the mods

It was a shame that Chris (DISJT) left the forum as I liked his candour and straight talking while he was always willing to acknowledge others viewpoints. I did read the various and numerous posts that caused him to leave but I've forgotten the actual content and reasons why he left. Maybe if I can ...

Re: 40mm Trident. Could it be true?

Do you remember this advert? rAp4nMrp.jpg If Christopher Ward really do think they are comparable to Tudor, they will seriously need to up their game. A 40mm Trident would be interesting. However, Tudor have already released an excellent 39mm in the form of the Tudor Black Bay 58. Visually the Chri...

Re: January Sale 2019

The old style has multiple holes for fine adjustment using a tool and springbar. The 3mm diver extension folds out giving a little more size to go over a wetsuit or similar. The new is obviously the ratcheting adjustment. Thank you. I was correct to order the new version so will hold out for 1 of t...

Re: January Sale 2019

Can anybody educate me about the difference between the "3mm divers extension" micro adjustment stated on the Old Logo 20mm Trident bracelet and the micro adjustment stated on the New Logo Trident bracelets?

Yep basic errors still happening - I ordered a New Logo NN Trident bracelet and received an Old Logo NN even though the invoice h...
