This "one-off" is an outcome of the 2012 FLE process.

This is the prototype for the C9 FLE. Identical in all respects to the production run except it's lacking the LE serial number...

C60 Trident Vintage Pro 600

"Developed around the time of the C60 Trident Chronograph's release, this completely unique creation is the Chronograph given a vintage overhaul. Water-resistant to 100m and powered by the Valjoux 7750, a regular small second subdial replaces the Chronograph's usual breathing regulator-inspired feature."

C60 Orange ceramic that IIRC didn't make it into production as they weren't happy with the colour of the ceramic.

And this one-off Trident arrived with me today, although not sure whether I will keep, return or pop it in sales corner yet.
No serial or model number on the case back on this one.
