I do like the new upgrades of the c60 case.

Although, I won't buy this mk3 because I don't like the hands : the mk2 hands were really easily identifiable (I 'm fond of the drop" design) and to my opinion the arrow is not adequate. I can't really explain how or why I feel it's not adequate but that's my (humble) opinion.

So, I hope the next upgrade will show new hands. Maybe .

I'm curious if they will ever come up with a new C60 Trident Vintage or a bronze based on the MK3...

I don't know how well the matte dial with vintage lume will work with the new hands. I think it's all a tad too modern.

A Bronze C60 Trident Mk3 was mentioned, at the Manchester GTG, for 2020.

For me it’s the date window: must be blue for a blue dial, and please please get rid of the cheap looking white date window frame. For a modern, fairly minimalist design, this looks all wrong. Better yet, let’s have a no date version!

make the flag logo more prominent, remove the cw wording, cut the WR down and reduce the height and change the hands back.

Hands certainly and I'd like to see the textured dial return.

Personally, I'l like to see a mock up with a triangular minute hand instead of the baton; the base of triangular minute hand being the same width as the hour hand. Length unchanged.

The only thing I'd change are the minute and hour hands, they're awful. I miss the precision of the onion shape on the old mark 2.

The other thing I'd change, which is also the case with the Mk 2, are the polished indices. On a white dial you can't even read the time at certain angle. It'd be nice to have a pop of colour in there like an orange minute hand so it's a bit more sporty.

I would just like to see some new colour variations introduced, particularly for the 40mm size, but also for the GMT variant. And the QC improved to ensure any defective pieces are kept to a minimum.

I don’t want to see any changes to what is an outstanding upgrade over the previous version.
Agreed. The moment a red bezel 40mm comes along, I'll get it.
