How a Micro Brand changed the Dive watch market

Post by Bahnstormer_vRS » Mon Apr 29, 2019 11:00 pm

Excellent review of the C60 Trident range (to date) by Mark @ Average Bros. and perfectly timed with the release of the C60 Trident 3 in 25 hours time (at the time of writing).



Plenty of scope to do a prequel covering the C6 Kingfisher range?

It was just too slow for me, got bored quickly.

I ended up watching to the end. Certainly not a very engaging review. Found it boring and lacklustre.

Still I guess it provided a bit of a summary for those unfamiliar with the Trident and I ended up dusting off an old favourite to wear for a couple of hours.

I think it gives good background for those that will see the new model and maybe want more details on the brand and previous Trident models, but agree, it's not quite as detailed and polished as some of his other videos. Appears to be truly "off the cuff".

I found and watched this review yesterday. The review was a bit static but it was good to see the genesis of the Trident. He seems excited about the Mk III too. I was amused by how he underplayed the "logo thing". I don't mind the new logo at all and the new logo blue-on-blue Trident is a great watch. Mine certainly does good service. I'm looking forward to seeing how the reviews of the Mk III go. Will the logo or hand-set comments dominate?

For me both brandname positioning and handset are quite a turnoff, because the watch feels unbalanced; what a pity that the onion shape has gone - that was quite unique. My guess: the handset comments will dominate ;)

That was dull, especially after the ludicrously hyped title.

I guess the idea is get CW all over the net for as little outlay as possible, but some of these 'reviewers' are a big turn-off.

These so called Social Media "Influencers" have no influence except on their own egos. Waste of time and pixels.
