A proper question then. Have the sales of 40mm C60 Tridents continued to outpace those of the 42 and 38mm sizes? If so, does this mean that the introduction of new variants will focus on the 40mm?

Another proper question.
Are there any plans to introduce a white dial/blue bezel 42mm C60 Trident?

+1

And slightly widening out Mark's question, what new colour schemes are planned for the C60 (and when) - and will any of those be restricted to certain case sizes?

Where next for the Apex? After the C7 and C60, what model is next, and when is it expected to be released?

And I don’t know why anyone felt the need to state “ Paid by Paypal? will remain as processing forever...!!!” Guy stated no discussion, it’s a valid question about an anomaly on the site.
I felt the need to state this as it is a matter of fact that normal credit card payments are fine but PayPal payments are not. Any other interested readers of this thread may not be aware of this and would wonder what the OP was on about.....

The way it was stated, gave the impression it was acceptable. Clearly it’s not and needs addressing!!

Anyway, this is now a discussion. Guy, please feel free to delete any or all of my posts in this thread as I can read your instructions. Thanks

A couple of strap / bracelet related questions from me:

1. Has any thought been given to introducing screw pins for bracelet links? Adjusting bracelets with the pin and collar system can be frustrating compared to, for example, an Oris bracelet which uses screw pins.

2. Would it be possible to buy a rubber / hybrid strap with some type of bader deployment? I prefer to wear heavier dive watches on a rubber strap and a deployment clasp is much easier to put on and take off rather than a normal tang buckle. I don't recall CW ever offering this option on anything other than leather straps.

+1 for question 2. Question 1 was asked at a previous GTG, Edinburgh if memory serves me correct.
If it’s not from Yorkshire it’s sh1te!

It was stated at the Manchester GTG in April that "There will be an Aviator Apex in 2021."

I will ask if this projection is still correct.

Would it be possible to buy a CW Shell Cordovan strap without the Bader Deployant buckle (for those of us who already own a Bader) however would like to purchase multiple straps?

The market-leading 60/60 warranty was recently discussed in relation to a need to have CW service the watch during the warranty period. Can we expect some clarification T&C's to ensure that there can be no ambiguity determining whether a fault will be covered?
