The black dial version is nice , I’ve emailed them last week and they said they would consider making the 38mm version

nicely done, why not consider 40mm C60 homage? it will be sales like hot cake as CW don't have it now, i bet lot of CW fans will buy 40mm C60 for a try as the price is cheap.

You’d be surprised at how few 38mm are available especially as a diver , and there is a big demand for watches 36-38mm watches

^^^I wouldn't expect the price to rise particularly. We all pay our money and take our choice.

If you think the Trident is overpriced, then I guess you have the option of sticking to the cheap Chinese knock offs that you seem to favour and believe are better vfm.

They are value for money if you look at what you get for your money , you can’t argue that

you shouldn’t knock china as manufacturers as someone mentioned earlier they make parts or assemble products for most companies around the world.

I always thought the Submariner was Rolex’s homàge to a black C60, and the Tudor Black Bay Red was an homàge to the red bezel, black face C60?

Nobody is knocking China as a manufacturer.

We are all too aware that CW has parts made there and we are also aware of the VFM the C60 represents.

This homage/knock-off is only VFM because CW have put the legwork into the R&D etc which these guys are now exploiting.
It's all pretty simple to understand.

Mr greyman is , he’s calling them “cheap chinese knock offs”
That sounds like he’s knocking them to me

Regardless, this is about the c60 homage and if you look at the specs of the watch it is good value for money
You can’t go wrong with a seiko auto movement at this price .
This watch is less than $200

Take that how you want. I see it as a statement of fact.
They are exactly that, a cheap(er), knock-off of the C60 put together in China.
Nobody is knocking the specs, but there is a reason they are able to make them cheaper, that's all.

I hope they make a 38mm for you and it fulfils your every wish and fantasy.
After all, everyone deserves a watch that meets all their wants and needs.

Anyhow, let's all just kick back and look forward to Gary's views now :thumbup:

Thinking about this a bit more, I don’t think that the watch referenced in this thread is an homage to the CW Trident C60. :)

A definition helps to understand this:

Homage = Respect shown to someone or something you admire.

Ergo basically copying the C60 visual looks is, by my reckoning, not showing respect to the brand that originally designed it, therefore not an homage. :thumbdown:

The C60 on the other hand takes design clues and inspiration from one or more iconic dive watches of the past and shows respect by designing and producing a coherent good looking design of its own. :thumbup:

You keep telling us how cheap they are compared to the Trident

They are Chinese you will agree?

The definition of knock off is a copy or imitation of a more expensive product

Which part of that don't you agree with?

They are Chinese i agree, with a Japanese movement

If it was a copy it would have a cw logo on the dial

All im saying is it a good value for money watch

Stainless Steel case
Dive watch with
Sapphire crystal
Seiko automatic movement
Less than $200 = value for money

Do you agree?

Agree with what?

No if it had CW logo on the dial it would be a fake not a copy. I refuse to use the “rep” terminology and prefer to call it as it is. I.e. another brands name on a watch not produced and authorised by that brand = fake.
