Does "relaunch" = restock, or indicate a new design?
Usually when something is discontinued it means a new design. :thumbup:
Hoping for a white dial 38mm like the C65 Trident Classic, which only came in 43mm unfortunately :/

If I had to guess I'd assume that they're not going to redesign it in any major way, because if they were they would likely be making a big deal out of it as they did with the C60.

Perhaps maintaining the same fundamental design aesthetic but with the new C65 case and the embossed logo at 12 o’clock?

That sounds nice. I’d like no date too.

For me, the 38mm C65 vintage case provided a great platform for a classic, waterproof sports watch and CW should have utilised it more, even if just for a couple of LE runs to test the water.

I really hope they go along with this using the 38/40mm cases from the MK3 C60. IIRC, Mike has already mentioned something along these lines.
