What is the rarest Trident colour combination???

Post by MaxHud » Wed Apr 03, 2019 2:37 pm

Hi Guys!

I have recently bought a MKII GMT Red Bezel White Dial 38mm and I read on here that is a rare colour combination.

How rare are they actually and are there any other rare (or rarer) colour and size combinations of the trident about that I'm not aware of?

Many Thanks

Max

The Green bezel with white face seems to be quite rare, Took me quite a while to replace when I stupidly sold the 1st one I had!

I would have to say the Blue bezel/White face is the hardest to come by.

I've had a couple that I do miss, the red bezel/white dial as well as the blue bezel/white dial. Both were 43mm Mk2 non GMT Trident Pros (with the ceramic bezel).

I agree the green bezel, white face is also quite rare.

Max,

Was that the one that was recently sold on eBay?

I'm sorry to say that it isn't unique, I have one exactly the same. I bought mine two years ago after looking for it for quite a long time, and this combination rarely seems to be up for sale.

Enjoy it, it's a lovely combination. :D

The 2012 FLEs being the scooter blue and The Red Jag are as rare as they get at 50 apiece.

Red Bezel, Black Dial Trident SH21 - an unofficial limited edition of approx. 32 pieces I believe.
Plus quite a few one-off prototypes that pop up every so often.
Current collection incl Alpina, Citizen, Eterna, Oris, Rolex, Seiko, Tag & Tudor.

It's a black dial/black bezel 38mm MkII Trident GMT with old logo - Why ? because I've had a WTB in the SC since the beginning of 2019 to try to buy 1 and had no response despite nearly 300 views :D

That exact watch went up for sale on the facebook page yesterday morning by a frequent contributor that I've personally sold to in the past. US based however. $700 USD + freight.

Ahh, but does rare equate with nobody wanted them so very few produced? LEs excepted, natch.

Disclosure: I too have a red bezel/white face Trident ("Polish") in 43mm which I am very pleased with.

Only 2 problems with that.....I don't use Facebook and unlikely to buy from USA due to additional postage costs.
It was a tongue-in-cheek post of course mainly 'cos I don't understand why there would be 300 views of a WTB post if there isn't 300 people that have 1 they're considering selling.
:? :?

No problem! Was too perfect of a scenario not to mention it. I let him know you were looking if he were to happen to join and reach out.
