Obviously I'm a fan, but they are good and now have quite a range, not all to my taste. There's a comprehensive website and a great forum, just google them.

CW is a great brand who make excellent watches. 

Here's a look at the 2012 FLE C60 Trident, affectionately known as the scooter blue.

I am the lucky owner of #1

I've got this: C5 auto Mk1  These had a few changes over the model run. This is the second iteration, the very first ones had gold plated movements. Now all CW watches are made in Switzerland, but this early one was assembled in the UK, which is why it says Swiss Movt. (Eta 2824)

Just arrived this morning. Took a chance on this as it's right on the edge size wise for me at c50mm lug to lug, but it sits really nicely. Quite taken with it at the moment. Might look good on a black leather strap?

Bought this on a rush of blood to the head on eBay yesterday, and it arrived today.  It was posted within an hour of the sale.

I like this a lot and think it might be my new favourite :biggrin: only trouble is something else will have to go :sad:

The last owner replaced the strap for one with fully brushed links.

Mine. Loving this thing. Not a fan of the original because of the off-set date window, not a fan of the next version because of the Omega wavy line homage. But this matt black 'vintage' version, is spot on for me (in this photo, the bezel is a notch off line, that was down to me. it's fine when positioned correctly).

I've whittled down my CW watches these last 12 months and these are all that remain. I think the orange blob GMT will stay for quite some time.

My new fella. Think its more of a lass than a chap though. Still debating whether to put it on the forum or take advantage of the 60:60 policy. Just doesnt do anything for me. Think its purely the hands.

 I never was a fan of the Trident – or swimming watches in general. And as for White on White – don't get me started!

I love divers, and love the trident design, I just cant do the white on white. Even black accent would make me like it, not silver though. It does look fantastic with my barbour though.

Variation on a theme, but similar issue here. Lovely watch but haven't worn it and not bonding

I had considered black vs white, but even that one, something is off. I think part of it might be the glossy ceramic bezel. Hopefully wearing it for a day wont void the return policy. Maybe thats why they included the £190 strap on the sale pieces, so you cant viably return them.

TBH don't mind the bezel and like the colours, but would prefer it on a bracelet and the 38mm size is a tiny bit small for me. Mine's the quartz though, and paid about £160, so hoping I'll get that back if/when I sell it. I'm sure you could return yours as long as there's no damage.

Sorry to hear that it isn't bonding. I think the hands do stand out more on a black dial but if you don't like the shape...

Start thinking about the lovely way on which the delicate tips point towards the fine minute track, the way the edges catch the light so you can still clearly read even though it is white on white, the oh-so delicate second hand gliding round (no other watch I own makes me look at the second hand like this one does) and then let your eye drift to the Trident counterweight.

And repeat. Until you can't take it off your wrist...
