CW C60 Trident GMT 38mm Enlarges the Herd..

Postby Thunder1 » November 27th 2018, 5:15pm

Well, through my continued and brief, but successful, period of ownership of a couple of Steinharts, I thought I'd expand my horizons & add this CW C60 Trident 38mm GMT to my collection..I've only worn it for a couple of hours since I've switched out the admittedly fine(but heavier) SS bracelet for a brown Hirsch leather strap, but initial feelings are very positive, indeed..the burgundy ceramic bezel is very rich in both appearance and feel..it is unidirectional and very easy & smooth to operate(something I can't say for the Steinharts)...while the polished SS case is only 38mm in width(minus the screwed in crown), to me it commands a larger wrist presence when viewing it on the wrist in my office setting..it is also somewhat tall at 13.7 mm, much akin to the many Valjoux 775x equipped watches that I've experienced wearing..the glossy black dial has a wave texture reminiscent of some Seamasters, but in this case ,it is both very well executed and looks great in this context..the brown strap I've chosen for it has a lighter shade of brown stitching which accents both the GMT hand and some of the lettering on the dial..I believe I'm the 3d owner of this baby..picked it up from 'Rice and Gravy' at WUS(a fine seller!!) for $675.00..going by what I see on the CW site, it is still available brand new, but has been discontinued..I might add that I think the overall finish of this CW is somewhat superior to the 2 Steinharts that I own, but I have to say that they are hard to beat for the prices they go for, as well..here are a couple of pics of it w/ the new strap as well as a link to the original sale posting...good hunting folks!!..

From back when CW made a damned fine watch for the $$$. Nice addition to your collection.

Nice looking watch. I have looked at their 38mm’s, but for some reason just never followed through with a purchase. It’s always in the back of my mind though.

A fine looking watch, Mr. Thunder!
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
