C65 trident vs. Dartmouth

Post by Robert0 »

Hello - i have just took the plunge on the Dartmouth but have to wait a month to get my hands on it. I’m since beginning to wish i went for the c65 trident - i love retro divers! Anyone have both or views on which is a better watch? I’m tempted to get both but they are fairly similar !

Case wise they are identical. Movement, the Dartmouth is COSC where the C65 Trident is not. Other than that it boils down to esthetics. I think the Dartmouth takes more cues from vintage Seamasters and the Trident more from vintage Rolex. I personally have the Dartmouth but I really like the Trident too.
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 have a Dartmouth and have to say I prefer the dial to the C65 Trident. Logo is at 12 too so does have perfect symmetry. I also prefer the blue of the Dartmouth which I believe is more vibrant than the blue of the Trident (although I haven't handled a Trident in the flesh)

Some others + a few on the way

Thanks guys... and exactly my logic greyman. C65 does look great on both a bracelet and brown leather though!

I have the blue C65 Trident and the black C65 Dartmouth. It would be hard to pick one over the other, the blue on the Trident is amazing and you can change the look of the watch so much with the different strap options. The Dartmouth with its Seamaster deign cues is an instant classic for me. To pick one over the other would just depend on what I am wearing that day.
