For those who missed out on the previous renditions of our popular C60 Trident Day Date COSC series, it may be time to take the dive with this new 250-piece limited edition chronometer. Powered by a Swiss-made ETA 2836 movement, and bearing an exciting blue, orange and black colour scheme, the C60 Trident Acan COSC Limited Edition dares to be different.
Following the success of the Trident Day Date COSC releases before it, this 250-piece limited edition continues to blend modern dive watch looks with the technicality of its Swiss-made chronometer movement - although this time it's decorated in an eye-catching triumvirate of blue, orange and black.
If you pull your eyes away from the Acan's glossy zirconia ceramic bezel, a matte blue dial offers a bold foundation upon which a dashing of colour and texture has been applied. Both our customary Trident-shaped counterbalance and printed five minute markers are present in orange, while the applied indexes and window framing the dial's day and date wheels have been tastefully polished.
As part of the Trident family, legibility and reliability are guaranteed. Its indexes and hands are deep-filled with SuperLumiNova® SLN T C1 for excellent luminosity, while its marine-grade stainless steel case and sapphire crystal ensures the Acan will continue to perform down to depths of 600m. With a chronometer-certified ETA 2836 movement complete with anti-shock system inside, the C60 Trident Acan COSC Limited Edition's dynamic appearance and robust build quality will cause waves just about anywhere.
Using the ubiquitous ETA 2824 as its basis, the 2836-2 COSC adds a day wheel mechanism to complement its date function.
Just as importantly, each 2836-2 COSC calibre has been certified by the independent Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, making it about as accurate as a mechanical movement can be.
To achieve 'chronometer' status, the movement must be accurate to within at least -4/+6 seconds per day in different positions and temperatures.
That only six per cent of all Swiss movements are COSC-certified tells you how special this movement is.
