Ever since the new logo I’ve come away from the brand, I keep returning in hopes the logo changes but to no avail. Cannot tell you how disappointed I was when they announced the logo was changing. I like no I love the whole trident theme and the seconds hand trident counter balance is one of if not my favourite aesthetic on any watch that immediately comes to mind. But the logo change was enough to make me come away completely. Love the new sapphire blue and smoke but the logo again is the killer I think.
By logo I mean the (Christopher ward) not the flag.

As others have said, screw down crown on the C65. I’ve popped the crown several times by just taking something out of my pocket, so annoying.

Oh, I'd change the logo. Don't care where they put it but I'd prefer it said Vacheron-Constantin or Piaget.
Classic :D :lol: :D :thumbup:

I believe that all C65 watches will have a screw down crown going forward. This was mentioned by Mike France in his March 2020 interview with WatchPro.

I did not know that, main reason why I had shied away from another C65.

Right now I think everything except the GMT and Cranwell has a screw down crown.
Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombre COSC LE, C65 Super Compressor

In Review:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 10 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

AFAIK rkovars is correct. Only two C65 models DO NOT have screw down crowns. I wonder if/when CW will update the Cranwell?

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I'd like a bigger lume pop on the seconds hand and a little finer finishing on the bracelet like the nice bevel the Monta bracelet has. Monta photo from the internet. ImageImage

Would I want to change anything? Nope.

If I like it; I'll buy, or consider buying, it.

If I don't like it, I won't.

A better colour match for the CW blue tropic strap on the C65 Deep Blue would be good...

The only thing I’d like to see is CW put some more effort into the end link fitment with the case. I’m not saying it isn’t already acceptable. I just know that improving that would really take the fit and finish to another level. I think they’re ready for that.

I'd love to be able to buy a C60 rubber strap, on deployant, with curved ends to hug the case (as they've had in the past or like the Omega PO's and Seamasters)

Yes kind of like how the C6 Kingfisher rubber strap hugged your wrist and was curved and flush with the case.
