^^^ Great review Guy. Very insightful and informative. Thanks. :thumbup:
The 40mm looks good and although the bracelet is an upgrade I’m not sure I like the wider centre links.
The Mk2 bracelet looks better proportioned, brushed of course!
Overall I like it although I won’t be buying one as I already have a similar diver.

Some people are still coming up with clever ideas to get rid of the 9 o'clock branding... I actually like it. Have enough watches with the brand at 12...
Good point and well taken!
It’s not about location so much as it’s an eye sore and doesn’t fit with the design. Black/blue face with a shiny white branding in a cheeky font. Keep it at 9 for all I care but make it flow with the design more.

The ideas are still coming because these details that are personal dislikes prevent me and other CW watch owners from purchasing and owning what are otherwise excellent watches. We keep making suggestions because we really would like to continue buying CW watches but won't (i.e. are prevented from doing so) at present. So many people suggested that CW make a 40mm Trident and look what's happened. If people don't express their dislike of certain aspects then there will never be the possibility of them being changed and that holds true for everything in life.

The problem that I have with the name at 9o'clock is the left justification of 2 names that are of such dis-similar length. Take a look at some of the IWC watches to see how to deal with different fonts and justification of differing length words while still keeping a "balanced" look to the dial.

If these new Tridents had a centre justified name at 12 and flags applied or embossed at 9 then I'd be booking a showroom visit today to spend £1000 of my money on a blue GMT but then maybe other buyers wouldn't have bought. :ka:

I can only hope that CW's year of the Chronograph 2020 provides an alternative for those that can't live with the existing logo layout.

Wow, gorgeous capture, Guy. The finishing on that looks amazing. How crisp is that bezel? Like a good bezel, me!! The light catcher lines on the lugs are a great detail, too. And...it's a real winner on the nato.
I'm a tool watch kinda guy; bezels and pushers for me. I used to dive, I used to climb mountains. I spend too much time looking at watches.

Got to love that new logo.
Which other watch manufacturer has a logo at 9 o’clock?
I buy CW watches due to high quality, massive bang for your buck and they’re different.

You shouldn’t let little things get in the way! ;-)

Think it's possible to find someone to lume the twin flags with matching C1 Super-LumiNova well enough to where it looks ok and matches the rest of the face and bezel? Or is that a pipe dream?

Er, IWC - as above. They do move it around though as might be needed to suit the dial layout but it's always in balance.
