Eyes on the Prize

Post by iain » Sat May 11, 2019 10:26 am

DPD have delivered my competition prize Trident about 10 minutes ago.

I’m about to head off out shortly so won’t get chance to post much until later tomorrow but here are a few quick photos to whet your appetite

The new packaging looks absolutely fantastic. I was a bit wary that the eco package would be a step down in quality but it’s definitely not the case

As for the watch itself

Initial impressions are very positive, I’ll add a review in time when I’ve lived with it for a few days.

Great pics Iain.
Congrats mate, jealous!

Although the “long” documents look odd. Prefer the shorter booklets.

Pleased for you. Looks good. :clap:

Looks great, and the packaging is certainly individual. Good to know it is up to standard.

Will look forward to your thoughts on wearing and living with.

Love those deep glossy black shades.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

A deserved winner. Nice to see all the pics on CWL of the day. It's great to see a winner appreciate their prize so much and not shut it away in a drawer.
Good on you!

Cheers,

Thanks Chris, although it was always going to be a well worn watch.
