I'm sure some won't like the new logo, but overall I like the way the new range has been designed. I'm positive about these.

Just bought the Trident Day/Date on S/Steel to see what it's like - worse case it'll go back!

I wasn't sure about the new logo but I really like the new range to be honest! Stunning watches.

I'm a little surprised that the 600s aren't offered with the orange bezel, only the 300s. Is it harder to make a ceramic bezel in that color or maybe it would not look right in gloss ceramic so was not done?

Was tempted by the old style SH21, but as I purchased one before XMAS with poorly applied lume (sent back) and as this is similarly priced, but new model with day/date and limited this got my vote. Would prefer the SH21 but not paying £1715 for it!

Also fully expecting a voucher to land in the post soon, but I could always buy another...

I still think the new logo is bland, but it looks fine on all the new Tridents, except the quartz 300 models. Something is just off about the proportions and look of the quartz-model dial with the new logo.

I also note that for the Trident 600 Pro, CW states that only Sellita is being used for the movement.

Each model of the Trident appears to use just one particular movement. So even for the chronograph, there's no "either ETA 7750 or Sellita 500" thing.

Price increase of about 10% for the regular and titanium models. Someone has to pay for the new logo..! Any coupon codes available? :D

The movement is now only the SW-200 so no more guessing what's inside. The bezel on the Day-Date is really nice and something different. GMT bezel still the old weird one.

And they finally fixed the date position on the quartz. :thumbup:

Was hoping for a nice blue version but no such luck.

Not a bad price for a COSC and it's a limited edition. I don't like to admit but.. looks nicely balanced with the new logo.

C60 Chronograph to me works better than the old logo :shock:

The smaller website images look like there is no wave pattern.
You can only see it when clicking on one to get the larger image up.

I'm really liking the Day Date COSC.
Mainly because I think non SH21 COSC should be an option across the range (non COSC accuracy isn't something I could live with).
Also strange that it has its own unique bezel.

Funny I prefer the new logo on the black dials but I prefer the old one on the white dials!

Very tempted by the titanium. Group buy Wulf?
