For me it has brought balance to the dial where the winder almost caused me pain. Where I think they missed a bit was using what looks like parts bin 12 and 6 markers from the C60; mixing vintage and modern aesthetics. I quite like it otherwise...

I lke the auto, but the hand wound is better, just, imho.

I do like the cleaner bezel and like the blobs, similar to Rolex. I’m not a fan of the date window personally but like the fact it’s an auto.

However the C65 diver just shades it for me and still remains my next CW. (Defending on the customer experience I get after having to send my nearly new C1 back ](*,) ).

In a perfect world a mix of the two for me. :thumbup:

Love the “blobs”.
I have battons on my C65 GMT, would be nice to have something similar, but subtly different.
Add that to the wish list, along with the Trident 3...

Here's a screenshot from the GTG video. Not a great picture, but gives you and idea what it looks like with the black dial.

This might be the diver for me. It addresses everything I wasn’t crazy about the C65 Trident Diver - automatic, less fussy bezel, and blobs instead of baton markers.

I could see myself being very happy with a C65 trio to round out all my watch needs - C65 Trident Vintage, C65 Trident GMT, and a C65 Trident Diver Automatic. If only I was in a position to buy two new watches.

On the picture of the blue dial it looks like the lume is not vintage lume. It's hard to tell on the screenshot of the black dial. If its non-vintage lume it will make some people happy who are not into the vintage patina look.
Both the blue and the black still have "vintage" lume.

Also the new blue C65 GMT will also have vintage lume - and a yellow/orange GMT hand that complements the oak strap very well. The only one without vintage lume is the C65 Pepsi GMT.

New news to me that the C65 GMT will be available in blue. Any pictures of that model? Will the bezel be a "Batman" style?

Bident wrote:Are the dimensions for the C65 Trident Automatic identical to the C65 Trident Diver? The YouTube video is quite blurry, but I think the case thickness reads the same 11.55mm which seems unlikely given the thicker SW200 movement.

I’m assuming the Pepsi C65 GMT has the same dimensions as the oringal C65 GMT?

Thanks for any responses.
The C65 Trident Diver (handwound) uses exactly the same case as the C65 Trident Automatic.

Ooh, tell us more. Did you get to see it?

Have they used the metallic blue dial of the diver and the steel GMT bezel??

Yes, I saw it. Now trying to remember all the details!

I think it's the same blue as in the C65 Diver and the same GMT hand and bezel as on the current black-dialled C65 GMT. I do recall that it looked excellent on the light brown oak strap. It complemented the GMT hand really well and the GMT hand also looks great against the blue dial.
