Re: how fast/slow is your trident MK3 running?

Mine averages about +3sec a day. When I wear it I usually put it on at about 06:00 and then wear it through the day until about 21:00. I like to be watch-free for a while before hitting the hay... during that time it usually runs to about +4sec for an average day at the office. I have found though t...

Re: Anyone fancy a Coke?

That’s some serious art-work, hats off to you!
It’s not my cup of tea, I’m more than happy with my original, steel bezel version, but I’m sure others will be interested.

Re: Trident gaining 10 to 12 seconds....

The Sellita movement is specified as to be accurate to +/-20sec a day, as mentioned above. Also, as mentioned above, they usually do way better than this. Mine runs to a net of about +3sec whenever I wear it regularly. By “regularly” I mean for 14-16hr a day and that is for either a work day or a we...

Re: New C65 Trident Vintage Mk II

So, it seems like mine in on pre-order... My other half and I have our anniversary coming up and she has finally taken my horological hints! I was thinking of the original version so can’t wait to see how the Light-Catcher case works with this new design. I also like the look of the other changes/up...

Re: Time to Rotate

Pretty slick :-) I heard words of caution about leaving auto watches on a winder long-term. I have taken some advice and use mine on a timer plug so it runs on and off during the day (8:00am to 9:00pm) and then rests the watches over night. That replicates my usual watch wearing habits and seems to ...

Re: C65 divers or GMT owner experience

I have both. In fact, I have the GMT, and both versions of the Diver (auto and manual). I find that all three are exceptional watches, especially for the price I paid. The GMT I find wears more dressy than the other two, especially as I prefer to keep it on the bracelet, but both divers fill the “ca...

Re: CWL of the day

Ah, the joy of a quick release bracelet! I needed something a bit more casual for today so off with the bracelet and on with my new genuine Phoenix NATO (black/grey/red). I love the reds on the dial and strap complimenting each other. 68CFA1DA-0CE6-4996-A714-EDB61019DDD3.jpeg C The first nato I hav...

Re: C65 Quick Release Bracelet.

Can’t wait for both the new watch, and the quick release strap. My C65 GMT still gets a lot of wrist time and I am regularly trying to swap from bracelet to leather to NATO, but the bracelet is a bit of a pig to get back on. If the new bracelet is anything as good as the offering on my new Trident M...

Re: The Best Nato Strap Money Can Buy?

Evening everybody, I'm on a mission to find the very best quality Nato strap in the same colour as what Sean Connery used in Goldfinger to put on my C65 Automatic.
