Capturing the look of iconic 1960s dive watches, the C65 Trident Bronze SH21 Limited Edition also incorporates a bronze case and bezel, as well as a hand-wound version of our groundbreaking in-house movement Calibre SH21. And if this unique dive watch wasn't special enough already, only 150 have been made.

Description

The C65 Trident Bronze SH21 Limited Edition: proof that good things come in threes. For this 150-piece limited edition combines the acclaimed retro visuals of our C65 Trident Diver with the popularity of the bronze material introduced in our Trident range; and then, if that weren't enough, adds the technical majesty of our in-house chronometer, Calibre SH21, into the equation.

If the C65 Trident Diver infused a 60s dive watch aesthetic with the technological advancements of the present day, the SH21 Limited Edition expands that concept even further. A material omnipresent through maritime history, bronze was introduced into the Trident family in 2017; here, the C65's C5191 bronze (CuSn6) case houses Calibre SH21, our in-house movement that offers 120 hours of chronometer-certified timekeeping when fully wound. 

The inclusion of a small second subdial roots the C65 in a more traditional era of horology, while a wealth of other detailing reaffirms this. The exterior of its baton-shaped hands have been plated with gold, and their centres filled with Old Radium SuperLumiNova®; the same vintage-themed lume then features across the dial's raised indexes and enlarged numerals at 12. But it's the contrast between case and dial that will leave a lasting impression, with the former's rich bronze hue specifically tailored to accentuate the blue of its dial and bezel further.

The C65 Trident Bronze SH21 Limited Edition is a seamless cohesion of the old and new - and all in a case that will develop its own unique patina over time.

Movement

Featured here in hand-wound form, our in-house movement Calibre SH21 provides the dependable heart of the C65 Trident Bronze SH21 Limited Edition, where its second hand has been relocated to a subdial at 6 o'clock.

Just as impressive are Calibre SH21's technical capabilities, which can provide 120 hours of chronometer-certified timekeeping off one full charge. Every Calibre SH21 has been passed by Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, who test each in a variety of temperatures and positions. Only 6% of Swiss-made movements receive this certification, ensuring the C65 Trident Bronze SH21 Limited Edition sits in an exclusive arena occupied by few other small second watches.
