C65 Trident GMT - Pepsi

Post by Bahnstormer_vRS » Wed Mar 13, 2019 4:42 pm

Video from CW spotted;-



"The new GMT's 24-hour bezel insert is constructed from dual blue and red-toned anodised aluminium with its numerals engraved and filled with a white lacquer. Aesthetically, the GMT continues down the path crafted by the Trident Diver yet built with the potential to track three time zones at once. Taking the bold '60s look introduced by the C65 Trident Diver, the C65 GMT is then infused with the rugged spirit of GMT watches.

Thanks to the Swiss-made Sellita SW330 - a GMT movement only 4.1mm high - the C65 Trident GMT measures in at a sleek 12.05mm - ensuring a watch that will look at home on almost every wrist. When fully wound, it delivers 42 hours of continuous power, while vibrating at a rate of eight times per second (28,800 times an hour)."


and details from the CW website;- C65 Trident GMT range

Nice looking watch, but too small for me.

Who writes this nonsense...
If the C65 Trident Diver captured the look and feel of the iconic dive watches worn by Sean Connery as 007, the C65 Trident GMT reflects the jet-setting Bond for whom the ‘60s unveiled a whole new age of globe-spanning opportunity.
Current collection incl Alpina, Casio, Christopher Ward, Citizen, Oris, Rolex, Seiko, & Tag.

Someone who is trying to make a spurious link back to their own product by referencing a link between a fictional character and two iconic watches that have stood the test of time! :)

Have you ever read such bull5h1t in all your life? :lol: The thing is some folk get taken in by all that rubbish

As for the watches, nah, not for me. They can't hold a candle, looks wise, to the C60 GMT in my opinion. I think its the plain baton style hands that turn me away from it. I have the same hands on my C65 Classic, but they seem to suit that simple style of watch. They are just too plain on this type of watch for my liking I'm afraid.

A list of Bond watches, no watch on Halle Berrys wrist - that's all I was looking at, honest.

Best looking C65 GMT yet. The red GMT hand is much more appealing and the loss of numbers on the dial is always a winner with me. I might have to break the "no watches" before the C60 Mk III moratorium.
I wish I was going to the showroom in the near future to see it in person. 60/60 is great but a show room visit is better.

I can't begin to say how much I wanted to like this watch.

Unfortunately, it wasn't to be.

I'm sure that it will sell well.

I tried on the Pepsi at the Edinburgh GTG. It's nice. But I was more taken with the new blue dial version, which is also now on the website. Especially on the tan leather strap, which complements the orange GMT hand remarkably well.

Fully agree. Blue dial and the tan strap is the winning combo :thumbup:

One thing I will say is it’s not a patch on the Pepsi trident

I love the blue and steel bezel, but add in tan hands/indices and a black date window and you lost me. White indices and matching date I'd have already bought one I think.
