Are there any lume pictures yet?
I haven't seen an official photo with lume yet, but the promotional video has a few frames showing the lume, about 24 seconds in. Here's a quick screen shot...

Height issue aside for a moment.... it's hard to not like it.
The unmistakable Trident characteristics, the light catcher case, the symmetry of the dial, the judicious use of colour accent..
A good offering IMHO..

There is nothing remarkable about this watch, just another generic offing in a market already overpopulated with chronograph style watches from any number of watchmakers. I think it would be better proportioned in a 43mm case as there is a lot of detail on this dial which seems to me a tad cluttered. Perhaps a different dial coloured variant would be more aesthetically pleasing to the eye 🤔😊😉.
Well, this saved me some writing time! I agree 100% with what you have written. A perfectly fine offering that doesn't shout out from the crowd.

It looks good. Whilst I don’t mind a 30 minute counter on a more dress style Chronograph, I have always viewed a full 12 hour counter as far more useful on a tool watch Chronograph such as this.

Agreed - but pleased that the previous Micky-Mouse 'small seconds' aka 'Breather' has been abandoned !
Lol I quite liked the previous "breather"! At least it set the watch apart from others.

I think you had to view it as a stylised indicator that the watch was running, rather than anything else. Getting the lume charged up on it was a bit tough, mind....

This is the first CW I've really liked in ages. Shame about the height (and cost) but nice to see summat else instead of yet another military collection.

Already have 2 chrono's, need to convince myself I don't need another :(

The dial is stunning and the watch looks fantastic but 17.2 mmm Is a bit crazy for thickness.
I don’t even see the necessity for that thickness

I had wondered if they were considering a 12 & 6 bicompax with the logo at 9! Perhaps for the C65s...

Is it due to the 600m WR maybe?
