    CW Trident Pro discontinued???

    Cruised by the CW website today and couldn't find any trident watches besides the new c65 which really seems to be a dress watch.

    Have they discontinued the line?

    Does this mean a new version coming soon?

    Perhaps they will deal with Lume strength, 430 date, clasp amongst other chronic grumbles around an otherwise intriguing watch.

    It was one of my first loves though I never pulled the trigger as I discovered watches away from the mainstream Japanese and Swiss brands. The shortcomings I perceived as mentioned above held me back while I discovered other options.

    Wow that's only just happened if that is the case. I was looking on their site yesterday and both C60 and C61 tridents were on there.

    This is a shame.

    looks like some still available in Search, but special versions. I imagine it's a refresh coming...hope they move that bloody date box, or better yet offer a no-date.

    That's interesting.. But will probably come with a price increase.. Haven't they risen the price a lot the last couple of years? Or my memory is gone to Christmas mode :-D

    I spoke to them at Salon QP earlier this year. I can't remember exactly what was said, but I have a vague recollection that they were going to introduce the SH21 movement into the C60 line (and move the date window to 3). Ceramic bezel too.

    I might be misremembering this though, so please don't have a go at me if it doesn't happen.

    Yes and no. Rumour has it that with the new Trident on the blocks with its ceramic bezel and date at 3:00 stocks of the existing models have been withdrawn from sale and held back for the forthcoming Nearly New Sale.

    I've been lobbying for this several times on the CW forum. Chris himself mentioned an upgrade being on the agenda back in 2013.

    Well seems i am not crazy then. Had to look up the Sh21 movement. Impressive, i didn't realize they had done that. For those as ignorant as i was, it is an in house swiss made twin barrel automatic with 5 day reserve and date complication, 28,800, COSC certified, 31 jewels, hacking seconds.

    After my first thought of "awesome!", it is quickly tempered by "uh,oh" as the prices will sky rocket with that movement. Maybe they will have multiple options at various price points.
