Yesterday, we had our first hands-on review of a CW watch, the C11. Â While that was a fine watch in it’s own regard, I really think today’s sample is an outstanding piece – both within the brand, and across brands. Â For me, this watch is easily in my top 5.Of course, explaining while I feel the C60 Trident is just about a perfect watch is not going to be easy, but I’ll do my best. Â With some watches, you can get a sense of them from the pictures, but it’s a different story once you handle it in the steel. Â And that’s what happened for me with the C60.
Looking at the pictures of the watch, you see something that isn’t uncommon on these pages – three hander, functional bezel, and a NATO strap. Â When I opened the box on this one, I couldn’t wait to get it on my wrist. Â Something about the proportions on the 42mm case just seemed spot on to me. Â And combined with the NATO our sample was on (black/maroon/olive), its a stunner.
Of course, a watch can’t just be all looks, though, can it. Â Here, as with the C11, you’ll end up with an ETA 2824-2 or an SW200-1. Â This is all wrapped up with a sapphire crystal topping the 13mm thick steel case, screw-in case back and screw-down crown, netting a 1000m water resistance rating. Â In other words, this watch should stand up to just about anything you throw at it.
Last, but not least, you’ve got a nice little wave detail in the dial, which also features some great lume. Â And it’s not in your standard green. Â Here’s its actually blue – just another little twist to add some interest to the watch.
In the end, yes, I liked this watch – a lot. Â It’s got classic styling, a great movement, and at only $480, it’s practically a no-brainer if you’re looking to buy a watch in this vein. Â It’s a sad day with this one heading back home to the UK, but I can easily see adding one to my personal collection in the future.
