Having seen the side by side with the black day/date i now realised what looked odd on the Acan, the bezel.

I wonder why they didn't use the bezel they used on the black and the white day/date, a small detail but personally i feel would add to the overall package of limited edition.

Still a nice piece

I think black hands would have worked a treat, complementing the bezel. My one criticism is the date wheel capitalised font being at odds with the opposing lowercase at 9 o'clock.

That bezel is too busy in my opinion, I like the regular bezel much better. There is usually something I would like to see different but I can't think of anything with this C60 Acan. Not even the wordmark at 9...!

The blue/black actually looks quite subtle for a Trident, very nice. I too think the logo at nine works well across from the day date as we have postulated.

Still resisting at the moment....just.

Nice looking watch Chris. I like the dial color and like that it doesn't have the wave pattern. I also like the black bezel, and orange accents. For me, either black or steel bezel works on this watch. Enjoy.

The C60 Acan 030/250 arrived yesterday and took a few quick phone pictures (except the first one). First impression is very good, nice combination of the blue dial and black bezel in my opinion. More pictures can be found in this album: http://horology.world/gallery/album/31- ... n-cosc-le/

One of the best pieces of recent times.

Shame it's a limited edition, is so good.
Even the stupid logo at 9 doesn't look too bad.

Absolutely stunning watch, bought mine on the day of release, could not resist. CW seriously got the design right on this model, the best C60 so far imho. Contacting CW to ask for a specific number was a breeze and I had my 007 numbered watch within a couple of days :D
