C65 Trident request

Post by manicm » Fri Sep 06, 2019 7:50 pm

I love the watches, but I just realised something has been gnawing at me since launch - the faux colonial khaki markers. Please offer updated watches (whenever that happens) with white markers/numerals.

Also, and I admit this is personal preference, but offer the automatic with the Arabic numerals - just so much classier to me.

There are some C65s with white lume and markers, eg the Pepsi GMT and the new Yellow 316L limited edition.

But I'm with you re a dislike of "vintage" lume. Although I could make an exception for the new SH21 C65 limited edition! :)

Agree, I think the "vintage" lumed look is a bit passe. Start offering options please across the range and not just in the high-vis colour watches.
Another request while I'm here - can we have a GMT with logo at 12 please? Any model, I don't mind.

Rumor has it that a new purple dial with a green bezel might be released with a logo at 12. Will you but that one? :lol:

The ‘Wimbledon Edition’ - could sell well, and for top dollar too as anything to do with Wimbledon is over priced but they all still buy it. You could be onto something here, Kip :D
If it’s not from Yorkshire it’s sh1te!

This might very possibly be the understatement of the year! :lol:

On the lume question, I was always against it as an aficionado of true vintage watches (I used, somewhat disparagingly, to refer to it as Caramac Lume), but having lived with it for a year on my blue C65 diver I find that I am perfectly happy with it.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

I love "vintage" lume but I understand it shouldn't be an issue to be able to offer another lumes as an option in part of the CW catalog
