^^^ They aren't releasing too much info yet (a) because it's not finalised and (b) because it could harm sales of the mk2
I seem to recall a C60 MK1 ‘fire sale’ before MK2 was released. Will be interesting to see if stock levels are such that it happens again
Indeed - I was surprised that there weren’t more tridents in the Jan sales, so maybe they’ve been planning for a while and stock levels are relatively modest.

Without wanting to start a new thread, although it may deserve one, this is a comment I witnessed online today.

' Rocking rolex 114200 with white explorer dial every day. Im looking for beater for the summer maybe skx013 or christopher ward c60 '

How do people view this brand?

I view CW well above ‘beater’ status personally

likewise. I made a comment below it, stating that I own one and find their quality well above skx and into longines et al territory.

The 38mm quartz 300 is off site, since I last checked, so that may be a clue.

42mm is fine for me, after being scared off the 43mm, so.looking forward to the new model.

That hour hand looks better than the existing one in some ways, but also that its trying to be a little too clever and hence over styled - completely unnecessary and something far more subtle would be more appropriate on what is generally, a classy divers watch.

I hope any date window matches the colour of the dial and its not black on blue etc. or lose the date altogether perhaps?

Bring back Trident Pro on the dial!

Yes I know, but I am going to say it anyway - why put Christopher Ward on the dial in that style (i.e. flush left) and at 9? Christopher is too long in comparison to Ward to sit well flushed left and whilst sales of their watches may be going well, think how many are lost by this crime against design, logo - just put Ward below the (excellent) twin flags - job done!

Just have CW on the dial, the logo on the crown, and Christopher Ward on the back.
