Another comparison with another one hander.

No, I didn't buy it because it's out of stock. (I found it's interesting since I wanted to look it & mentioned I have voucher too use.) - Ordered online & used voucher. :D
Wrist shots please :thumbup:

I still can't make up my mind about the use of Arabic. More legible, but less smart looking I think and takes something away from the design somehow.

Does anyone know the lug-to-lug size of the 40mm C9 case? The lugs look quite short (which would be good) but it may be an optical illusion.

The 40mm JH has just arrived at the showroom on Friday. I will get the measurements on Monday. :)

I'm with you on this. Much easier to read but less formal might be what I am seeking for. Would really like this 40mm one with roman numerals but I've learnt sometimes I cannot have it all.

Still await for its arrival but have not heard anything since.

It wears smaller than my Schauer which is 50mm so I would say around 46/47mm. Can clearly tell it's much shorter (the one shown in the middle).

My measurements show 47.94mm for lug to lug.

Here you go on my 6.5 rather flat wrist.

Fits much better and feel dressier than MKII.

C65 Trident Classic feels relatively massive.

Image

It feels rather similar to Meistersinger's 38mm case. (I think both has similar lug to lug length)

Looks great, thanks for sharing the pics :thumbup:

I'm not sure if it's actually the dial design that's as responsible as the case for making it appear ever so slightly smaller, the case in those pics looks near identical in size to me(obviously they aren't) and certainly not 3mm different.

To be a pain, seeing as you've owned a Mk.1 in the past also, any chance of a similar wrist shot of the Mk.1(if you have one) to compare against the 40mm Mk.3? :-"

It in fact feels much smaller and look at the lug to lug. It's over-hang a bit for MKI/II. Plenty of space for 40mm.

MKI certainly feels smaller with busier design but the lug to lug is still too long to me.

Thanks hskierk, yes I can see what you mean about the lugs, but isn't it funny how the Mk.1 still appears the smallest. I'd kill for the Mk.1 in the new 40mm case, but I guess that's another story :lol:

Certainly a special watch but not the easiest one to find.

On the pix, they might look the smallest but completely opposite in the flesh. I think the design of MKI is not as dressy. Newer 40mm case makes it a lot formal & might not work too well IMO. Smaller dial space may also make minute numerals stand out too much contracting the roman numeral disc. (I prefer batons on MK3 than MK1/2 having 2 different numerals.)

Am I right to assume CW will launch a limited edition JH MKIII in 40mm with roman numerals ? (I guess roman numerals are only reserved for limited run & best with blue minute hand.)

Hi Folks....not been here for a while as very busy.....this new MK3 has now "jumped" to the top of my "want one" list.....it has now come down to a size oi likes....and will fill my desire for both a single hand watch, and jump hour....so it makes it actually cheaper than buying two watches......

Now all I need is a cunning plan to get one.....past the "she who shall not be named!"

meds Kip...and fast....
