Nice watch. Looks big for your wrist.

Haha yea... Also the SH21 thickness doesn't help either at 15.5 mm :oops:

Very nice :thumbup:

It's very big and rather shiny for a beater though and depending what you intend to beat in it I'm not sure an auto is the best choice...

The Trident is a CW classic model. When it also has the discontinued red bezel and even better the SH21 then you have a very fine watch there.

I certainly wouldn't call this one a beater either (although I'm sure that was a tongue in cheek comment!), I guess that depends what else is in your collection though!

I'm only calling it a beater because Its huge on me and It will probably be scratch a bit when I wear it often especially right now in the summer time :oops:

Well it is meant to be worn, as long as the scratches and dents have memories attached they are part of the ownership experience. Glad to hear it's not in for an intentionally tough life :)

I think you landed a very nice one! Especially for a “beater” watch. :D
