Well, not a lot grabs my attention these days but the video for the new chrono certainly had my eyebrows raised, heart pumping and imagination strapping the watch to my wrist. It looks splendid. I thought it would be priced closer to 2k and was pleasantly surprised to see it is nearer 1.5k. I don't think the height will be particularly attractive to many but the way CWL have engineered the caseback to taper, I suspect it will wear reasonably close to the current C60 Pro.

Not so sure about the stealth titanium models but I have never really got the whole stealth thing anyway.

I see the new releases as signs that CWL continue to go from strength to strength.

They all look pretty good to me, especially at the prices offered. There will be many takers for these I'm sure.
I agree on the stealth titanium models though, I can barely see the hands in the pictures. Again I'm sure they'll have fans though.
CW are certainly moving forwards with some of the recent releases - impressed.

I have scrutinised the small print and cannot see anything about it being limited run either. I can't see them making it a limited run piece.

i think its a shame you cant get the Ti with white highlights on a silver bracelet.

Wow, the chrono looks great - definitely on my possible wishlist. The color combo is spot on. Got to love the seconds subdial. I just wish it were 2-3 mm thinner, would gladly settle for 200m WR or so (instead of 600m).
Don't know if the HEV is absolutely necessary either.

The titanium Tridents are not doing anything for me - they need better real-life pics imo. These look very stealth/hard-to-read.

Nice to see they've released them, but I'm going to pass on these ones. The titanium was promising, but I'm not so keen on the "stealth" dial and bezel. I have enough trouble seeing silver hands on white, but grey on black is beyond me. The black PVD looks better as it's nice and legible.

Chrono looks very good, but is way too thick and pricey for me.

I have another question - the website on the chrono page says "25 jewel self-winding mechanical chronograph with column wheel" - but I don't think the 7750 is a column wheel movement ? Or is it?

I've also a question for the divers out there - is the chrono of extra benefit when diving? Would you use this instead of the bezel, or use both in conjunction?

The chronograph looks like a winner to me - plenty of features and a few USP's at a price that's very competitive. Yes, it's tall - but plenty of 7750 watches are the same height - even without the 600m WR. I like the colours and I like the small seconds indicator.

I agree with others about the 'stealth' Ti version - I just don't get 'stealth' watches, so I'd like to see the visible-dial in the non-DLC case.

I really like the Chrono, but sadly out of reach for me :?
