Re: C65 divers or GMT owner experience

Here the Pepsi on a traditional NATO. I think it works quite well. (I call it the Pepsi after the Rolex nickname. I am assuming that’s what is being used for this mode as well?) https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190519/8344cdd7823cf7ac73c74bdfb11b27da.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190519/b...

Re: CWL of the day

Latest addition and that’s the buying spree done for quite some time! Let’s see if the NATO can keep the stainless steel away from my skin enough to avoid a rash. Otherwise you’ll see this beauty in the sales corner soon. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190519/0ba4c7443ba1fac20b9cc304dad1e16c.jpg...

Re: Misquote on back of new Speedmaster Limited Edition.

You would have thought they would have used the quote of what millions of people on earth actually heard on that historic occasion, not what he said he meant to say. They could have. But if he said he misspoke / you can’t hear the “a”, then I see why they corrected it. Probably but he would have wa...

Re: Misquote on back of new Speedmaster Limited Edition.

I have read about this a few times. Apparently Armstrong maintains he did say “a man”, but it can’t be heard on the transmission. Otherwise the quote makes no sense, with out the “a”, “man” just means mankind? Maybe he didn’t say the “a”, but from interviews it seem to be clear he meant it that way....

To those who don't like the logo at 9 o'clock, I guess you'll be wanting the final series of Game of Thrones rewriting next. Ain't gonna happen.

Re: C65 divers or GMT owner experience

I love the Pepsi version, but seems like not much interested for that model on these forums? I find the night / day indication really helpful with many colleagues being based out of California - 7 to 9 time zones away depending on where I am...

Re: C60 Trident Elite 1000 (mk3) - thoughts after a week

Quick update: With the strap becoming more comfortable over time and moulding more to the shape of the wrist, I actually find that the watch seems lighter! I had the Sinn on again yesterday and switched to the Elite today, much less of that heavy feeling. My guess is that as the seams on the strap s...

How are owners finding the new 'hybrid' straps?
Terrible the first couple of days, but it stretched out nicely to the point where it's comfortable after a couple of weeks.

Re: C60 Trident Elite 1000 (mk3) - thoughts after a week

It’s just the back for some reason that scratches easily. Maybe it’s because of the polished finish. The sides of the case seem fine and the buckle itself has been used on a MacBook Aluminum extensively, it’s fine fine as well...

Re: C60 Trident Elite 1000 (mk3) - thoughts after a week

I noticed in the Ted's Corner specifications I put together for my Trident Mk3 - first look that the Titanium 1000 is 75g compared to the steel Trident Pro at 95g. I think the Titanium 1000 is heavier than expected as it needs to be beefier for the 1,000m WR. If that makes sense. Yes that makes sen...

C60 Trident Elite 1000 (mk3) - thoughts after a week

So it has been a week since I picked up my C60 Elite and I wanted to share a few thoughts in case anyone is on the fence and looking for some more info. My intention is not to write a "review" here. I have idea how to do that, nor would I want to. :-) I am just giving some honest feedback and postin...
