Agreed...the ocean blue Super Compressor is just superb. My current fav of the CW line up. Trigger pulling material, almost. :lol:

Great photo! Captures the Ombré detailing very nicely!
Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombré 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 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

I, too, am holding off from buying a new Sealander because I'm hoping/praying/manifesting that a blue dial will appear sometime in the (near!) future.

As for the shade of blue, I think you can't do better than my Trident Classic LE from 2016.

My apologies, but I can't post a pic to prove my point because it's currently having a service at CW. God, I miss it!

Never came across that particular photo. I think they were gone before I found the brand.

***IF*** you can find a mk1 Traska Freediver with blue dial, buy it!!!! Theyre less than half your budget 2nd hand and ive never found a blue dial that compares imo. Albeit theres some damn fine examples on here as always!

Also if like me, lume tickles your pickle, it more than satisfies :thumbup:

No fear of it selling out because of me! Love the dial. Don't care for bronze.

I think the Orient Mako has one of the best blue dials you will find (for the record I also own a blue C60 Bronze and a blue Seamaster Professional). Dark, deep, and a beautiful sunburst pattern. I hope that if a blue C63 is forthcoming it will rival the Mako.
