Reader Appreciation Week: C65 Trident Classic Automatic – $690
Consider this week five days of saying thank you. Without your readership, your emails, your terrific comments, and your willingness to spread the word, Dappered wouldn’t exist. The collection of good guys who frequent this corner of the internet is by far the greatest achievement of this website. And to say thank you, we’ve put together five, splurge-worthy giveaways that’ll hopefully express our gratitude. Welcome to Dappered’s Reader Appreciation Week. Good luck, and thanks a million.
This thing excels at standing out quietly. The C65 is one of Christopher Ward’s newest designs, and it’s as simple as it is sharp. No unnecessary design elements cluttering up the dial, but it’s anything but boring.
Based in part on the Trident dive watch collection, the C65 has a wave-textured dial, trident anchored second hand, spade hour hand, and a case solid enough that it feels more like a sport watch. But it absolutely looks like a dress watch, while it can also pull double duty dressed down with jeans.
The 42mm brushed stainless steel case might wear just a touch larger, but it’ll hit the sweet spot for many. Not tiny, but not enormous either. And that entire case is brushed, not just the lugs, so the shine is kept to a minimum. No exhibition case-back on this one, but the “High Definition ‘Trident’ motif back-plate” is anything but a forgotten detail. The “Bader” buckle clasp clicks in and out with a crisp snap.
Runs on the 38-hour power reserve Sellita SW200-1 Swiss automatic movement. Hackable. Sapphire crystal. SuperLuminova indices and hands, and water resistance clocks in at 150m.
It doesn’t shout. But it absolutely has a presence. A presence that those you might not mind noticing might notice, and those that you’d rather not probably won’t. Which is precisely what a lot of us are aiming for.
Enter here to win this Christopher Ward C65 Trident Classic with a black strap. One entry per person. Deadline for entry is 11:59 pm ET 9/10/14. Thanks to Christopher Ward for providing one of their newest additions to their lineup for Reader Appreciation Week.
