I wonder if C60 Chrono 600s become a little more frequent with the new release? Personally too thick for me at c.17mm (if I ever have to work from the office again!) And the budget holds me back also, but may tempt a few to replace old with new!
I'm pretty sure the previous (Mk2) version was over 17mm too. Pretty hefty chunks of metal.
Just; the C60 Trident Mk2 Chrono is 17.1mm.

Mind you the C40 Speedhawk is 16mm.

Great thanks.

I have a fair few alerts set up but I have also found that if you get too detailed you may miss out on one or two that have been incorrectly classified!

Point 1: I agree. I've set up a C60 search and just skim through the results. You could try a search for Christopher Ward 7750 watch and miss a few if the seller doesn't mention the movement. Which leads me to

Point 2: The 7750 movement is used in a lot of watch brands for the simpler reason that it is robust and relatively economic to produce. You will never find a 7750 movement in a slim case though: that's just part and parcel of the package. Many will have a chamfered case back to reduce the visual impact . I should maybe add a third point if the 7750 movement is new to you.

Point 3: the 7750 movement is nicknamed the WOBBLER. [youtube]https://youtu.be/zQM24OeObQo[/youtube]

I think this thread embodies everything that is great about this forum!

Someone joins, seeking info about the brand or a particular model, and the members respond warmly with informative and welcoming replies.

And cjose, I hope you find the model you’re looking for and that you stick around on the forum!

Not sure if you’re still looking, but a C40 speedhawk just popped up online.

Afternoon all,

As is typical - I made a bit of a knee-jerk reaction last night and purchased a slightly different style watch from a different brand (I will post a picture once it arrives and I am certain that it was a good decision..!), and then this morning...this happens https://www.ebay.co.uk/c/2278124395

Oh well! I will have to wait for the budget to creep back up! I will also add that link to the selling page should anyone else be interested!

Best,
Chris

P.S - - mentioned on the other page, but if anybody wishes to own this for 4-6 months, more than happy to enter into a gentleman's agreement to purchase off you in 2021!!
