Help selecting correct bracelet.

Post by Thermexman »

Can anyone advise me as to whether the following bracelet will fit a C65 Vintage Diver? The blue hand wind as shown in my pic.

It’s the 22mm N22-STL-10-SXS-MA. The website description describes it as C65 Bracelet Trident Mk2 .

I’m reluctant to ask CW as they’ve miss-informed people on more than one occasion where bracelets are concerned.

I don't have the hand wind Vintage Diver unfortunately. The MKII C65 bracelet fits both the Dartmouth and the C65 GMT. I am thinking that the case is the same on the Vintage Diver but can't verify for certain. The Super Compressor and the Chronos have a different bracelet because of the different cases require different end links.
Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombre COSC LE, C65 Super Compressor

In Review:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 10 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

Thanks, I’m of the same mind as you in thinking that the C65 case is the same on the GMT & Dartmouth but not sure. When I looked before, there were several versions and although they may well have been identical, they always seemed to mention the specific models covered. The current offerings don’t.

Thanks Guy. Forgot about that model. Oh well, it’ll stay on the leather then.

After looking at Guy's post and looking at the current listings for bracelets it would probably say C65 Trident Mk2 41mm to match what fits the Dartmouth and GMT.
Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombre COSC LE, C65 Super Compressor

Hi Steve,

The one you mentioned "N22-STL-10-SXS-MA" is the correct bracelet for your C65 Handwind.
This bracelet fits the C65 Handwind, the GMT, the automatic, the Dartmouth, the Cranwell & the C65 SH21 LE.
If you go to the regular strap section on the CW website you'll see the listing for the C65 Bracelet Trident Mk2 41mm bracelet and the product code is the same bar the "N" at the start which is to denote the nearly new.

I didn't compare the skews! :oops: #-o

I just took my C65 vintage handwind (the same watch as your picture) bracelet off, assuming I would see a reference number somewhere, but no joy. It's still fiddly to put it back! So I checked the invoice for the watch, which says it's a 22-STL-10-SXS-MA - C65 Bracelet Trident Mk 2. The bracelet actually came on the Yellow Ltd Edition. Same as others have said.

And by the way, I think the blue watch looks terrific on the bracelet. (I thought I had uploaded this photo, but I can't find it, so I've uploaded again). The bracelet came with the yellow LE, but I prefer them changed over like this.

Thanks Ferg. Much appreciated. Unfortunately, I’ve only just seen this and they’ve gone!

Thanks Jaffa. Again, much appreciated. I’m rather jealous of your yellow LE. I totally missed these in the sale. Been keeping my eyes peeled for returns but not holding my breath.

There's quite a few yellows on ebay, not on bracelets, at prices somewhat higher than than they would have paid, I think.

I know. I’m watching one that’s currently lower than they were bought at. I suspect that if the auctions end at lower than they paid in the sale, they’ll renege on the deal and return the watch to CW for refund?
