Same blue dial?

Post by KornSaksakorn »

Hi members,

Can you please advise whether the blue dial of C65 Trident Diver SH21 and C65 Dartmouth are the same?

If different, which is more beautiful blue in your opinions?

Are their bracelets interchangeable?

Thanks all.

The Dartmouth is a darker, Naval, blue.

Preference? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Yes, bracelets are interchangeable.

Again, many thanks Guy.

Understood you saw both dial colors of Dartmouth’s before. What is your opinion?

Same blue dial?

I just took some quick pics of the two, side by side on identical bracelets which may help. Like Guy I’ll offer no opinion as to which is nicer, but I do like both.

In real life there is more of a colour difference than what seems to show with the camera - the Vintage is slightly lighter IRL. The Dartmouth, likewise, is perhaps slightly darker than it appears here.

Nice pics, Gary

Good to see both side by side.

I prefer the Vintage, mainly due to the thinner minute track. But that blue on the Dartmouth is very classy and dare I say dressier perhaps than the Vintage.

Took me awhile to come around to the Vintage because of the open 6, I kept seeing a G.

Now I have the black and the blue Vintage, both on bracelets. Hand winding watches are better than I expected and with no date, almost pick up and go.

Good points Brian.

Essentially, its not just about the shade of blue between the two watches (remember the blue on the C65 Trident Diver is the same as on the C65 SH21 LE that the OP initially asked about), its about the overall look of the watches with different hand sets, indices, lume colour bezel size etc.

For me though going back and taking the shade of blue in isolation, I have no particular preference.
