Right now I'm missing a decent dress diver/sportswatch on the market (similar to the older Eterna 1856 Kontiki Diver, Zenith Rainbow Elite Diver, Oris Artix GT Date (not DayDate)...)
38-39mm diameter
8-9mm height
thin (bidirectional) bezel
most stuff nowadays is rather humonguous instead of decent looking

+1 for either of another ceramic case model or a mechanical alarm

A Chronograph in either the Trident or C65 case (probably the C65 would suit better) with sub-dials at 3,6 and 9 so name logo at 12. Blue dialled with white (not vintaged) hands and markers.

Basically, styled like a Moonwatch in blue for around £1000ish.

For something more exotic - a black ceramic cased C65.

I’d love to see a chronograph with a telemetric scale.

I’d also love to see a C65 Vintage replacement that is far more of a rugged tool watch. Maybe this new military line will scratch that itch?

Still this one: Casual, elegant and rugged CW explorer 40mm watch, an affordable alternative for an Aqua Terra, North Flag, Explorer, Damasko and the likes.

^^ That’s just about the one I’m waiting for, but on bracelet and maybe a 12 and 6 on there. Cheers for the mock up, Frank. Pretty much confirms what I’ve said in another thread - the new handset suits that style of watch, it looks good. The perfect update for my C65 Classic.

I find myself thinking about the C65 Trident Bronze SH21 Limited Edition, and think it would be interesting to see it in stainless steel and with a black face and bezel.

And at a slightly cheaper price.

I'm another plus one for this. I''ve wanted a GMT for ages and I'm planning a birthday trip to CW Towers next month to see if the C65 Pepsi will scratch the itch, but something like this might change things!

I’d like to see a brass C60 mark 3. Brass is a great material, easy to patina, very forgiving, has a marine connotation, and is cheaper than stainless steel, so might encourage those on the fence to give CW a go. Many microbrands have brass models eg Helson, Armida, Marenez etc,
The specs: black dial, brass bezel, black rubber strap and no b***dy white date window edge!

Would love an explorer as suggested with 6 & 12.
Also a C65 with a SH21 manual or auto movement.

Returning to the more esoteric, I notice that the Moonglow will feature a date pointer. Perhaps...

Full triple-date with or without moon phase and/or chronograph.

Or how about a perpetual calendar?

With a blue dial, orange GMT and "Orange Pepsi" bezel (Orange/Blue).

I made up the bezel, I think, but why not?? :lol:

Love the “Explorer” described above, perhaps something to consider alongside the promised Field Watch range? Addition of a 3, 6, 9 and 12 would be the kipper’s knickers ;-)

My own offering would the the following:
40mm Trident M3 case body and crown in bronze.
Stainless steel case back
Stainless steel bezel housing
Matte black ceramic bezel insert (no lume)
Matte black dial with the standard M3 printing and applied hour markers.
M3 handset
Lume to be slightly vintage effect.
Icing on the cake would be a COSC movement (either “tinkered” Sellita or in-house if one can be fitted to the smaller case)

Just my thoughts...
