    I'll be plowing & shoveling snow today. Since snow is a form of water, I chose my diver watch for the duty.

    Inspired by Arch's post from mid December, but myself not being nearly as suave or sophisticated... 😁 An ae1200 World Time in black arrived yesterday. Waiting room wear today.

    Well been pondering a cristopher ward piece for a short while now, decided to bite the bullet on a titanium trident pro 600 variation 2. I like the v1, but maybe a little too stealthy/dark, so the v2 made the better choice for me. Hopefully with me mid week, got a grey 22mm strap thrown in to seal the deal!

    For solar charging, UK being cloudy 99.9999% of the time! I decided on trying this from amazon, i said i would never buy anything ending in fire, unless sure! Well i guess lack of options, decent reviews did not leave me much choice. At £24 its not worth that amount, but the market is hardly flooded with competition. The original G shock ones can go for crazy money, like 100's of $'s crazy.

    The beast!

    side switch, far left to run on batteries and use as a torch(surprisingly bright!), centre is off and far right mains



    King is 1 of 3 solar watches i have so far, its the kings turn 1st........well being the king.

    Congratulations, ven on the "grow light" for your watch, LOL!
    No lack of sunshine looking out my window here in New Hampshire, although the temperature is negative 12°F, which is negative 11°C. Maybe I need a "watch warmer" LOL.
    Rocking my Casio Edifice today. A handsome line that I should have more of.

    Thank you, it is very thin and comfortable to wear, and I get a fair bit of use from the various timezone features.

    Most of my watches are on metal, but for the few on straps, I have found that I prefer having a deployant-type buckle.

    Very nice archi, coincidence as my new watch is very similar. I also wear my watches on metal, certainly divers.......just prefer the look and weight. But i say that without actual direct experience so far. My CW. (Christopher Ward) is on a high density rubber strap, but to lighten the deal, another grey strap thrown in.

    Specs
    Description
    The brooding black 43mm case of C60 Trident Titanium Pro 600 Variation #2 is relieved by the sharp white lume of the indexes, hands and numerals of the matt black ceramic bezel. It’s a powerful combination which is appropriate for a watch whose titanium case is finished with a diamond-like-carbon (DLC) coating.
    A watch with such “Black ops” appeal inevitably has more than just its masculine good looks to offer. This is a watch that can resist water pressure up to 600 metres (2000 feet) below the surface, has a uni-directional bezel with a matt-finish zirconium ceramic insert and enjoys a precision-engineered fluidity of line that would benefit any water bound covert operation.
    Of course, most owners of Trident Titanium Variation #2 will not be members of the Special Boat Service or Navy Seals but, with this most macho of Tridents on the wrist, who will know?
    Features
    • Swiss made
    • Self-winding mechanical movement
    • 38 hour power reserve
    • Date calendar
    • Central hacking seconds
    • Anti-shock system
    • 43mm, titanium grade 2 case
    • Uni-directional ceramic bezel
    • Water resistant to 600m/ 2000ft
    • Screw-down deep-stamped 3D back plate
    • Screw-in crown
    • Unique engraved serial number
    • 3.44mm anti-reflective sapphire crystal
    • SuperLuminova blue emission indicies, bezel markers and hands
    • Matt black one piece dial
    • Signature Trident counter-balance
    • High-density rubber dive strap with black motif titanium buckle
    • Presentation case and owner’s handbook

    Technical• Diameter: 43mm• Height: 13.30mm• Case weight: 75 g• Calibre: ETA 2824-2 / Sellita SW200-1• Vibrations: 28.800 per hour• Case: Titanium Grade 2• Water resistance: 600m / 2000 ft• Dial colour: Matt black• Lume: SuperLuminova• Strap width: 22mm


    I am looking forward and will have a direct comparison V metal strap. The other week i got a new ultra sonic cleaner........been years since i have used one. My chain, bracelet(seldom wear the latter), then several dive watches got chucked in!. They all came up like new, just filled with water, couple of drops of wash liquid(fairy lol) and started just 1x3min cycle. Very impressed!!! All for under £25 off amazon and delivered next day. If not already, a recommend for making those dive/metal band watches come up like new.

    Today or this actual morning so far wear

    Ven - I’m starting to lean towards a Casio thanks to all your pictures! I’m liking that Mud...

    Swapped out of my Fitbit this afternoon for a faff on the river. Strap matches hat - I’m also getting more colour conscious thanks to the forum River conditions terrible, so just tidying up.

    Cant go wrong with a G , mudmaster, mudman, aviator,gulfman,rangeman(good few more to, like antman). There are a few mudmasters out, good few colour combos to choose.

    There is a new imminent mud carbon due out , an army edition, i am super tempted. Its quad sensor to, so lots of gadgets going on.

    Looks good Ven! I’m tempted for sure. What do you think about the feedback on white luminescence? I think that’s picky - every watch on ops should be covered anyway!!

    For which watch? (EDIT)For me personally makes no odds, so far i have found seiko has the strongest. UV turbo charges it super fast!

    If you decide on a casio at any point, let me know which and where as there are many fakes/copies out there. Some are very VERY good as well. Like almost impossible to tell good(almost!)

    EDIT- doh obviously the casio carbon mud!! Its a tough one if used out in the field, after all you would need to use a light(back light) in pitch black to read anyway. Like you say, covered over, so the lume would not get charged, only a little from back light use.

    If its comments on there, its probably super nerds who have not served. Of course i could be wrong, i seldom read peoples views and comments to be honest.
