It's better for my bank account that this does not have regular lume, because I love this otherwise.

It looks nice. And yes, the 12 o'clock text is right and proper. I won't be buying one, but I do like it.

Now you're talking !!!!!!

Strange how all of a sudden CW are willing to put the 9o'clock name logo at 12o'clock and centre justify it. Amazing what $324,000 can do.

It's a shame it carries the SH21 as this pushes the price up and there's only 150 being made also. Lovely looking watch though that might push me to a quick visit to the Showroom, as the blue is stunning. Hopefully this is good news for 2020 which is meant to be the year of the CW Chrono range.

EDIT - I've just read the content re. this watch on the website. £1900 on bracelet plus 1 of the blue hybrid straps pushes it over £2000. Plus it's the first time the SH21 has been an auto, with the small seconds and PR workings and that makes 124 parts in a hand-built watch. Mmmm, recent CW CS and QC standards with a watch that has 124 parts in an in-house movement? Sharp intake of breath and concerns over availability and costs of future servicing.

Why doesn't the standard C65 manual or auto have the logo at 12!

I like it! The logo looks considerably better at 12 o’clock.

I like it. Busy dial but that’s not always a bad thing.

Admire without desire to acquire.

Looks good. I’m not in the market for one, but it does look very nice. I’m starting to take a ‘no compromise’ approach now to stop me buying stuff I don’t need and won’t wear. All of the new releases I think look very good, but they all have something I would change and so I won’t be buying. I’m awaiting the military releases to see if there is something there that fits the bill for me.

Call me a traditionalist, but doesn't the logo look nice at 12'O Clock...exactly where it should be.

I think history will prove that all the world’s greatest outside the box thinkers started off with one thing in common; they knew where the box was in the first place so if it all went TU they could get back.

Strangely enough, it doesn't work for me.

The two subdials for PR and sub-seconds are fine on, say, the C8 PR but just don't look right on the C65 Diver.

One or the other but not both.

What a disaster. Why, oh why didn't they put the logo at 9:00.

^ Money, Money, Money............?

Fickleness?

Realising their error?

Same disjointed thinking that put it at 9 in the first place?

So it's at 12 not just on the C3?

Hello, more/different advise from a "design agency" company?

Who knows/cares anymore?

If I remember correctly the protocol was for the logo to be at 9 unless it did not work with the design/dial layout. The layout is determined by the chosen movement.

In this case i think it looks just fine all around. I must admit I am seriously considering this as my next one. While the overall design may not ring true to the design concept of the original C65 Trident Diver, I think this is a great looking watch with a great movement.
