I think WG have stopped supplying free spring bars with straps

The lume is non-existent so far, despite my best efforts to induce any kind of output - hopefully this will improve once exposed to sunlight.
Did you get any lume to show up yet? can you post some pics cheers.

It took a bit of doing - halogen spotlights!

That looks good Daytona, even if it took forever to fire the Lume up and it doesn’t last long :)

Looking very good! It's tempting me but I must resist :lol:

Cheers for posting these the lume looks great, definitely looks blue though not green but the colors not a deal breaker for me anyways.

First up soz for the wall of text but i really need some help see I'm thinking of buying the abyss but I'd prefer it on a bracelet I spoke to CW and they don't do 1 that fits, well I don't think they do the email I got wasn't much help tbh. Anyways i did some digging and came across watch gecko (will refer to as WG) I emailed them and they were really helpful and suggested this to me https://www.watchgecko.com/milanese-mesh-watch-strap

I really like the black one but I'm confused because in the email from WG they say the lug width of the abyss is 22mm and that this bracelet will work with it (notice they said work they didn't say anything about it fitting) but on the CW website it says lug to lug is 39.6mm is lug to lug not the same measurement as lug width are they 2 completely different things? googling it told me there both the distance between the lugs but it can't be because there's a huge difference between the 2 measurements and I think it's unlikely WG have mistook the strap width for the lug width. Finally can anyone who owns this watch tell me what size the spring bars are because that strap fits bars that are 1.8mm.
Hi Jay
Hopefully the information given so far will have addressed your key questions. However, I noticed your reference to a WG mesh bracelet. For information, I just received their Gallox Milanese Mesh bracelet, and fitted it to my MK2 C60 Trident. The bracelet is the 22mm size which matches the 22mm lug width of my C60, and the existing spring bars from the C60 (being 1.8mm in diameter), fit the bracelet perfectly. This bracelet will not take the thicker spring bars of say 2.0mm diameter, but that should not be an issue with the C60 watches.

Anyway this is the end result (though I realise nothing like the Abyss):

The lume is green in full darkness. It will look blue with some light around it.

Here ya go all the other straps are from watchgecko I couldn't be bothered actually putting them all on so the watch heads just resting on them so if they look loose or weird that's why. No lume pics because Its solid to photograph it 😝
