Day/date balances the name logo, like the blue dial with orange highlights but have never thought that a black bezel goes well with it plus it's 43mm so too big for me.

I'll hold onto my money for what comes next.

To be honest, I'm not that taken with it. I've never really been a fan of blue dials with black bezels, so it's not surprising that it leaves me a little cold. The standard blue C60 with the blue bezel seems much nicer (and cheaper as it's not a chronometer), as does the blue 316L LE with the stainless steel bezel.

It's also a shame that they have not used the same bezel as used in the previous white and black day-date C60 chronometers, which had the minute markers all the way round. I thought that looked great (but not with a blue dial).

I think I'll pass; I do already have a 316L and a C65 SB

Just for fun

Would someone with Photoshop skillz mind putting the C60 Chronograph bezel on it instead of the black 600 one please?

As my wish came true, I really had no other choice than to get out the credit card.. Order placed with express shipping at 12:58 GMT so just before the 13:00 deadline for same-day shipping. I used the 100CW18 code and didn't think about the 150CW18 so I sent them an email hoping they will apply the extra GBP 50 discount.

If you're in the US, order from the .uk site as it will be about $60 cheaper than the .com site if you use a credit card without foreign transaction fees.
Thanks for the tip on ordering from the UK site. I just crunched the numbers on this watch on the bracelet with the 150CW18 code compared to the US site, and it comes out to be about $125 less at the Current exchange rate. I'm not sure about this particular Trident yet until I see more pictures, but its good to know for any future purchases. Also interesting the UK has the additional 150 code and the US doesn't. The codes are usually fairly consistent for UK and USA.

The new C60 works for me.

Much, much better than the steel bezel.

Looks like I'm swimming against the tide on this one, but I'm not a fan.

Just looks like they made a parts bin containing all the parts from recent successful Tridents and then did a lucky dip, which will inevitably make for an eye-pleasing watch.

Agreed....

The C60 Trident Acan COSC Limited Edition draws its name from a vividly coloured species of coral found throughout the world’s oceans.

I wondered about an orange bezel also, it does work nicely, but IMHO on balance the black looks a tad better. Would have been irresistable were the bezel to be lumed as per the C60 Chrono though. =P~

I received a call and email from Maidenhead as my first order didn't go through because my credit card company flagged it as fraud. That happens occasionally with web orders in foreign countries and that is actually a good thing. I submitted a new order and was able to apply the 150CW18 code. My credit card account shows US$ 808.61 after conversion so that's a great price including express shipping. It won't go out until tomorrow though but I am not complaining. That price will also bring it under the $800 tax free limit.
