Ooooh, now I get it. Still don't like it. Thanks for the comment.

Nit picking here, but the trapezoidal shape of the window bothers me more than the color of the wheel. Makes it appear cramped.
All harks back to that Mid 60s retro vibe. :)
Except CW use the trapezoidal date window on their SH21 powered C60 Tridents, including the Apex too.

The aesthetic works for me, as the top and bottom edges of the date window follow the natural line from the centre to the edge of the dial. More noticeable give the large dial and fully outboard positioning of the date window.

My eyes are not that good Guy, so a good idea back then is still a good idea :)

Apologies and correction Gents, @davecUK specifically.

The MKII C60 Trident COSC SH21 has a regular rectangular date window; noticed as I'm wearing mine today and debating with myself whether I should let it go, to help fund my C60 Apex (which has got the trapezoidal date window).

I suppose I shouldn't say this but when at CW towers Adrian proudly showed me some of the watches he had worked on that represented the best of the best. Without thinking, I picked up the Apex, quickly looked at it and was quite dismissive with "it's not for me at all, looks like something a rapper would wear".

In my minds eye, strapping on an Apex, would have been like me strapping on a pair of these ;)

Now I have finished insulting Apex owners, it's just a bit of humour because a mate of mine thought it looked fantastic and I realise it's full of premium materials etc.. In truth it's probably because I have always find it hard to like skeletonised watches...don't know why.

I guess I'm just a boring old git nowadays... :lol:

Marketing spiel from the latest CW email:
If the C65 Trident Collection captures the look of the ‘60s dive watches worn by Sean Connery as 007, then the inclusion of our in-house movement Calibre SH21 – present in automatic form with power reserve and small second subdials – means this 150-piece limited edition represents the modern-day capabilities of Daniel Craig.

Unless Daniel Craig becomes a brand ambassador for CW, then all these Bond references are just pure garbage I'm afraid.

I generally try to not be too critical, as my Momma always said, " if you can't say something nice..." But this is pure drivel. Who hires these people? Better yet who approves the copy before it goes to print? Almost embarrassing. :thumbdown:
