since we are talking about blues... does anyone know if the blue in the CW is close to, darker or brighter than the Borealis blue diver? sorry to mention a non CW, but another blue watch is not a priority for me, love the CW but could do with a Borealis and keep saving up for a DBR1

Wow the trident is actually quite vibrant - do they tend to retain their colour or do they eventually fade with time?

Some more pics of the blue C60 to help you with the color (I have it on a leather strap, IMO a mesh bracelet looks cooler). I believe the color in the first and third pic is the closest to real life, the second pic was under yellow light within a room so not so vibrant.

I don't know if it is just me, but now I have my own C60 I think that in the flesh, the bezel looks slightly narrower and less prominent than it does in pictures....probably due to characteristics of macro lenses.

Would love it if the Trident blue was more of an Omega SMP blue.

what sorta muddy. No I like the bright blue of the C60 and the face and bezel are the same unlike the Omega. the C60 is great in the summer where the omega would IMO look a bit Dull.

+1 for the C60 blue on a bright summers day. I chose my blue C60 as my holiday watch this year and loved wearing it; it is particularly stunning in sunlight. The black works works wonderfully for most occasions but the blue is on its own for a bit of colour on the wrist.

Noticed that the Charcoal Bezel is no longer on the website.
Maybe it's that way for a while but I only spotted it yesterday.
