Still going strong and very much loved, thanks again for the opportunity to purchase this one Rich 👍

C65 Trident Diver Bronze manual prototype.

I’ve just managed to secure the C65 SH21 (small seconds) in bronze too, so will be interesting to compare them.

I really should have put this one-off prototype in here earlier. With an orange mid-case and day-date COSC movement, it’s kinda special…

C60 Trident GMT MK3 Red Bezel Prototype,
PN60-42AGM3-S0RK0-HK :


Flags logo in White which is also lumed and #0000 serial number.
Also has a matt dark grey dial compared to the usual glossy black version.
The Trident second hand is also the same as the MK2 style which is fuller and more stylized than the standard MK3 second hand.
The hour hand is slightly larger too.
Some new information I received last night is that the case also is slightly different !
The sides are more scalloped kind of like the C65 case

Photos below including some great comparison photos given to me by a CWE member who purchased the watch in the January sale but returned it as it was at a higher price in that sale and he decided to go for a standard C60 GMT MK3 instead.
He took photos of the two together before returning the Prototype. (Prototype is on the right in the comparison photos)
