So I received my sale C60 today, and CW had kindly actually sent a GMT version instead. Rang them, and unfortunately they didn't say "keep it", so they are sending me a return mailer instead. :thumbdown: :(

Managed to bag the only item I was hoping was going to come up in the sale, a C65 AM GT LE. Arrived today with the added bonus of a COSC certificate. Thought I'd want to add the bracelet but looks great on the black and red hybrid so I'm happy with that for now. Perfect grab and go to wear whilst driving around in the Toyota MR2 this summer :D

So I went to buy a watch, and the man in the shop said "Analogue." I said "No, just a watch."

Does anyone know if the C60 Trident Elite 1000 (the LE of 300) uses the same lume as the current C60 Elite 1000? CW took down the Trident Elite page so I can't look through it's specs.

That looks perfect on the strap. Agree with you that I don't think the bracelet is needed. Great looking combo :thumbup:

Easy way to tell 38mm vs 40mm vs 42mm C60 Mk2 or Mk3 is to look at the marker @ 3 o'clock next to the date window.

No marker - 38mm

Short marker, c. 1.5mm / 2mm - 40mm

Long marker, c. 3mm/4mm - 42 or 43mm

What have you got?

I think it is a 40mm.

Awesome! Thank you very much.

Is that accurate? Its 14.6 mm thick instead of the 15.4 thickness if its replacement? If so thats awesome as that’s a nearly 1mm difference.

I concur with that.

The other way to tell, I've just realised, is to check the model/serial number on the caseback, which should be C60-40AGM. . . .

More info in the CWArchive for you.

Finally received my sale pickup. Took a week to get to me. Well worth the wait though! What an absolutely stunning dial.

Threw it on the vintage oak leather while I find time to size the bracelet.

I received the pre sale email and had a look what was on offer.... always fancied a C60 red bezel Trident and the orange C60 Trident 300.

Had a better look that evening and not much was left!!! I know these sales are quick but surprised how little was left.

The Elite GMT 1000 has been on my radar, still there in the Summer Specials and really really tempted, hoped my C60 Abyss would have sold and there would've been another CW on its way. I know time is very much of the essence and may well end up biting the bullet.... hopefully in time!!
