Brand new C60 600. Different springbars ?

Post by Blackdog » Wed Jan 30, 2019 4:00 pm

Maybe a silly question, but here I go...

While resizing the bracelet on my brand new Trident I noticed that the springbars were different. In one side there is a double flange bar and on the other a single flange one.

I chalked it up to a simple mistake. Kinda whatever comes out of the drawer at assembly time... But now I was watching a youtube video about the same subject, same watch, and it ALSO has the two different type of springbars.

Is this just a coincidence or is it done like this for some reason I can't figure out ?

BTW, this is the video in question:


If you skip to 25:14 you see a full frontal of the watch, white face with blue bezel, with the name at 9, the dual flag logo at 12 and a red seconds hand. Which version of the Trident Pro is this ?

Thanks for the feedback.

That's correct - It was a very limited version direct to the CWE and was sold out totally and quickly with quite a lengthy reserve list also I think.

My 38mm C60 Red bezel also came with 2 different springbars...Figured it was odd, but at least they were good quality. I ordered a bracelet later on (one with polished center links) because the watch came on a fully brushed bracelet and it came with 2 springbars that were identical to each other.
