Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

Nice the see real images of the case profile, I’m glad it takes the sculpted looks of the C65s I also like the way the bezel slopes, in my experience this makes it less likely to catch in cuffs etc and so still be able to slide under even if it is relatively deep still. Can anyone tell me if the cry...

Re: CWL of the day

Sticking with the Trident II theme, this one for me today. Since the weather is warmer here it’s also time for a few funky NATO straps to jazz it up a bit

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

Case side profiles look more like a C65 than C60, lovely!

Re: CW c65 Automatic vs. Oris Sixty-Five (Movember)

I tried the bronze edged bezel Oris in an AD last week. Loved the subtle hit of bronze (and would like to see how it’s patina develops over time) and the 40mm size was pretty decent on my wrist. A couple of thinks put me off though. Firstly was the bronze. The one I tried had clearly been on and off...

Re: Advice for someone with a 6.5 inch / 165 mm wrist

I have pretty much the same wrist size as you and I can easily pull of the GMT. I also have the Diver C65 that has exactly the same case and these two get a lot more wrist time ime then my smaller, 38mm Trident C60 600. I used to abhor anything over 39mm (I put too much store in what online “experts...

Re: C60 Bronze, raw or patinated?

I’d always go for raw. I saw a pair side by side on a showroom visit at the back and of last year, as well as a third one that Declan had that had started raw and been tried on by (many) previous showroom visitors. This “used” one had, to me, by far the best finish and patina. It looked old, used an...

Re: Trident C60 Pro 600 vs. C65 Auto

Ah, what a choice to make! I currently have the C60 (Vintage) and both the C65 Divers (hand wind and auto versions) all three are in black. Many, many moons ago I also owned (briefly) a blue Seamaster Bond. I second most of what Lavaine has said above, especially as far as water resistance goes. I a...

Re: Steveo strap for ranger

@stefs Very nice watch, and a perfect match on that strap. I am thinking of adding the Ranger to my collection as I am very drawn to the simple dial layout. However, I seem to recall it has pretty long lugs (50mm?) and at 41mm diameter as well I fear it will swamp my tiny wrist. May I ask what wrist...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

As well as the hands and general layout of the dial, I am keen to hear more about the side profile - will it be thick, deep and slab-sided like the current Trident, or will it be slimmer, sculpted and have a variety of finished like the C65 Divers?

Anyone got any detail on this?

Re: Questions - Chat with Chris - Manchester GTG - 27th April 2019

One question from me and it is based on a recent scan of the CW site and the absence of availability of 38mm C65 Trident Vintage, 38mm C60 600s (aside from bronze) and 38mm C60 300s. Question: Will CW continue to produce diver/sports watches in sizes under 40mm, and will there ever be an in-house, C...

Re: C60 Trident Mk3 - pictures..!

I’d dearly love to see some images. Unfortunately I’m not a member of either FaceSnap or InstaBook so missed the cerfuffle that must have happened earlier. This is definitely on my radar and I’m already setting funds aside for the launch date. 40mm size, here I come! Anyone got an idea on its total ...

Re: What is the rarest Trident colour combination???

I’m not so hot in colour combinations, but I seem to remember the blue/black bezel and dial combo is pretty rare. Passing colour combinations by, having had a look in CW’s website I notice that there are no 38mm C60 300s left for sale. I’m guessing they are running the stock of all 38mm sizes down b...

Re: C65 GMT vs Automatic Bezel

Just to add a thousand words to an image...

Add to that the thin profile of the ...
