    So, the new Christopher Ward. I likey.

    Haven't seen this new line here yet. Looks like they are going whole hog on the new diver line.

    http://www.christopherward.co.uk/trident-videos.html



    It looks like they've refined the previous Trident, fixed the dumb date window, and gone for a dressy dial with a beefy diver body. ETA/Selita diver, COSC diver, and GMT 4-hander with GMT bezel. Buch of colors and even two sizes. They are betting BIG on this one.

    I really really didn't think I wanted another watch, but I've been looking for a travel/fun watch that's nice, but not Speedy/Nomos nice.

    Anyone else keeping an eye on these?

    I got to be honest. I didn't like the old one and I like the new one even less.

    Big improvement over the old one, which I liked a lot, took it on many dives but I wish they would have fully indexed the bezel.

    Except for the hour hand, it looks pretty good to me, especially the GMT version . I can think of lots of watches I'd choose ahead of CW, though.

    Still not loving it that much, but better than before.

    Have to admit I like it when my eyes come across pictures of the new ones with their own COSC movement, such as this one I just stole from the CW Forum:

    Got a hint of the Fisher Price about it, but in a wholesome way. Anyone thinking of getting one?

    PS think they should have got a new date wheel for this model, with a font that matches the rest of the watch, but hey

    Strong bump. It's nice enough...you're right about the date wheel font though, though I probably wouldn't have noticed had you not pointed it out....
