I quite like the Dartmouth which seems to be a C65 with Trident hands. Inspiration?

Help. :shock:

I'm going to be in trouble. Love all three of them. :clap:

Might on the face of it seem pricey (£100 more than a regular C65 Trident Diver, on which they are clearly based), but worth reading the small print on the dial;- Chronometer.

Thanks for the heads up Chris.

I’m hoping that’s not the full extent of the new range as there’s nothing there for me. No date is no good for what I’m after. Maybe my tastes have moved away from CW as there has only been one release over the last year or so that I would be tempted to spend money on, and there was a compromise on that so I didn’t bother.
If it’s not from Yorkshire it’s sh1te!

I haven't read through the blurb, but yes I believe it's 3 to begin with.

Dartmouth inspired by Omega Seamaster 300 Big Triangle, 1967
Sandhurst inspired by Smiths W10, 1967
Cranwell inspired by JLC Mark XI and IWC Mark XI, 6B/346, 1949

I wondered whether you would like them, Guy.
They all look very smart and practical, but the military styling is not for me.

I am usually not one for "homages" but man that that Dartmouth is now on my radar if it comes on a bracelet. Chronometer for under $1000USD, yes please. Just realized it's BLUE. Even better.

And it does come on a bracelet.

Yeah, shut up and take my $$$$$$$$.
