Re: Brands you have bypassed?

Farer. I like some of what they do, but way overpriced.

Mine finally arrived yesterday.....nicely wrapped.
Oh good. Maybe I’ll finally get mine this week. If CW really wants to increase other markets, they could start with not sending their magazine to other countries a month or two after “release.” Just sayin’.

Having read some on this in the past, I quite like the look of these.

Re: C60 Trident Bronze Ombré Review

Yeah, I believe all of the CW bronze watches have stainless steel case backs. I understand wanting something harder than bronze for use with case tools and the threading. As for myself, I won't have it in salt water much, if at all, and I suspect it will be fine over time. But, time will tell.

Thanks Scooter. I did update the video, so now there is a close-up clip starting at 12:36, in case anyone that already watched it is interested.

Re: Trident Pro 600 or Tissot Seastar 1000

The Tissot is a nice enough watch. However... Do you want a piece produced in its thousands from a mid tier Swatch Group brand? Tissot sell over 3m units per year. Or a quirky British brand that is bold enough to put their logo wherever they please? Buy the Trident (this is the CW forum after all)....

Reply via Facebook...

Re: C60 Trident Ombre COSC

Per Scott C. at CW "These watches are vacuum packed so we are unable to see each individual watch but I have checked the few examples that have been opened before dispatch and it does look like the depth rating is written in white and not red. I have made our web team aware and they will amend the p...

Re: C60 Trident Ombre COSC

Generally, I'm not negative and try to give the benefit, but you would think someone might have said "Let's update all the marketing with the final design so people know exactly what they are getting." Someone responds....."ah, it'll be fine, just a minor detail." Yet, in this bubble details matter....

Re: C60 Trident Ombré

Thanks for the great photos Richard. The red text issue had me a little down, and other pictures I've seen so far were poorly taken and hadn't shown off the quality very well. This set have helped convince me that I made the right choice for what will be my one and only bronze watch. (I realize that...

Re: C60 Trident Ombre COSC

As for me, I'm not sure that the white text as opposed to the red will be a deal breaker, I'll make that decision when it arrives, but I'm guessing I'll still want to keep it. It could be a QC mistake, or it could be that they chose to change it after seeing the production samples and wanted to make...
