I’ve booked in a visit to CW towers this Wednesday with the aim of purchasing the C65 Ombré.

I’m unsure of which strap to select but I’m not keen on the brown distressed leather strap.

Any recommendations?

Thanks,

The black canvas strap rather compliments its design cues more than the hybrid strap, in my opinion.

These are both really nice pieces.

I really like the C65 with the bronze case. For me, the strap options don't quite do it for me, but the watch itself is gorgeous.

I was fortunate enough to be able to go to the GTG on Saturday and had been looking forward to seeing the new military models, however it was the steel ombre that blew me away.

The dial was fantastic with how the silver scratches on the dial were done. The monochrome really suited the ombre styling. Plus the light catcher case puts the trident onto another level (also my first time handling the v3).

It's definitely on my wanted list now but I'll need to move a couple on first. An expensive day out!

Thanks,
Perhaps they'll have the watch on a couple of different strap options for you to compare i.e. also the bracelet and hybrid straps as shown on the website.

I personally like the distressed strap as it complements the dial of the watch although i think that strap suits the C65 Ombre more than the C60 Ombre.

Hello everyone,

I finally decide to register on this forum. it's without a doubt the purchase of my C65 Trident Bronze Ombre which encouraged me to do so, despite the difficulties for the language. In fact, I live in France, so please forgive my mistakes in language.

Any way, below the review that I made on a French watchmaking forum. I hope you will at least appreciate the photos for those who don't understand French.

See you soon :wave:

Liking the C60 Steel Ombre COSC....
I've had a go with most CW models in the true spirit of online buying - get it, try it, keep it or flip it!! Sometimes I slow down and I wonder if I'm approaching "watch retirement"; but no....

Welcome to the forum Gabriel. Fantastic photos you posted of the C65 Ombre (which is one of my favourite watches in CW's current range) especially the macro shots of the dial .

Welcome to the forum Gabriel. That was a wonderful review. Both your review and the watch received some very positive comments. Thanks for the lovely photographs and the chance to work my poor French skills again.
