C60 Bronze and Barton silicone

Post by Lavaine » Sat Feb 01, 2020 10:38 pm

Just wondering if anyone has put a brown/ khaki bottom Barton Elite on the C60 Bronze? I'm undecided as to whether the colour is a good match for the watch.

Not on a bronze, but I found the Barton Elite too thin for the chunky SS C60 case. Nice strap, but doesn't suit the Trident IMHO.

I had a grey/black on my 40mm C60 and found it to be a great fit. In fact, that’s what influenced me to buy a bucketload of additional Barton silicone elites for some other watches. As always in this gig, it’s horses for courses. :)

Agree with H0rati0 here.

It may be ok on the MK3 with it's thinner sculpted lugs, but they look lost on the MK2.
The MK2 needs a strap that is chunky and/or padded at the lugs to look decent imo.
