C65 Trident Diver SH21 Limited Edition

Post by downer »

I was very fortunate to acquire a new watch yesterday. :D

I have admired the C65 SH21 LE since I first saw it. To me it builds on the aesthetics of the standard C65 Diver by adding additional visual detail to the dial - as well as adding the functional value of the 5 day power reserve and the top-trumps bonus of an in-house movement. I also like the fact that this particular model has the combination of a baton dial and an automatic movement.

No wrist shots for now, as it is too dark...

Very nice Richard. The pictures hide the height of the SH21 (as does the light-catcher case) and, as a whole piece, it's a lovely piece. Enjoy it (I'm sure you will).

Killer piece. If a diver can cross over into the classy catagory, this surely makes the cut. :thumbup:

I have to say that that would fulfil my brief if asked for specifics to come up with a jolly decent looking watch.

I can't fault it.

Many congratulations and well photographed.

Marvellous watch, Richard. Any blue C65 diver is stunning, as I well know. An excellent choice. Congratulations! :thumbup:

Thanks. The watch feels pretty well proportioned on the wrist and, as you say, the case height (13.4mm) is well disguised by the combination of case shape, polishing and of course the box crystal.

Sorry to hear you are still waiting for yours. We (the mods) spent a long time over the last couple of days going through the current issues with the CW guys and I'm sure we will make a more comprehensive on the status and plans in the near future. In very simple terms, I can assure you they are fully aware and working hard to resolve the situation.

It’s one of the more expensive CW’s but when you analyse what you are getting - IHM, PR, 150m WR, all brushed adjustable QR bracelet, centred logo at 12- it’s actually very good value and a great looking watch.
