I realise that CW won't do "personalisation" of their standard issues but would they consider giving the option at order time of "coke" or "pepsi" bezels on the pepsi C65 GMT watch or vice versa if they bring out the Trident MkIII with a coke bezel.

  • Dive watches appear to be your star performers - do you still plan on investing in and producing Dress, Aviation & Motorsport ranges in the future?
  • Will the Jumping Hour return at some stage?
Current collection incl Alpina, Citizen, Oris, Rolex, Seiko, Tag & Tudor.

+1 for the question about the Aqua Terra competitor

1. Any chance of brushed ceramic bezels to change the look?
2. Do you see a trend away from larger watches (e.g., 44mm) towards the 42mm and 40mm sizes?

The distressed leather strap appears to be the more popular choice with the Trident Ombré.

Is CW considering adding distressed leather straps (different colours, black, brown, blue perhaps) to their lineup?

Based on the models being cleared out in the January / Spring sales, it looks like the motorsport and aviation lines have become pretty limited with their offerings. Are you anticipating new releases within these categories and if so, are they expected to be variances of the current models or a complete redesign? i.e. new cases and dial elements.

FYI the coke MKIII was a photoshop job by myself and to the best of my knowledge is not anything CW is considering for standard production. Only bringing this up as the coke reference within that question may result in a few confused faces at CW towers.

Will you make Limited Editions in 38 or 40mm sizes for smaller wrists this time with the MK3's, unlike the Trident MK2's that were all 43mm?

Yep I'm aware that the coke version was just your photoshop job and I did put "if" not "when" in my wording about a MkIII Trident so I'm not asking the question based on that, but thanks for pointing it out anyway for anybody else that may not have seen the posts re. your photoshop photos.
I prefer a black/red bezel as to my eyes it co-ordinates better with the black dial/red GMT hand hence my question.

10000% agree with that one. Don't understand the Pepsi craze.
