C60 Trident Elite 1000

Recommended Posts


Arriving alongside Trident 3, the C60 Trident Elite 1000 is a special new addition to our dive family. With a helium release valve and Grade 2 titanium case water-resistant to 1000m, it's a dive watch with serious technical pedigree; and that's before any mention has been made of this 300-piece limited edition's chronometer-certified movement and stunning blue and orange colour scheme...


With pressure increasing substantially below the ocean's surface, deep water diving requires an altogether more durable kind of dive watch. Enter the C60 Trident Elite 1000, whose 1000m water-resistance and automatic helium release valve confirm its status as the ultimate choice for any seasoned dive professional (although we'd still recommend a dive computer to be on the safe side!).

In the Elite 1000, Trident 3's new case design has been crafted from brushed Grade 2 titanium. Famed for its anti-corrosive qualities and possessing the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element, it's the perfect fit for a dive watch; combined with a sapphire crystal 3.8mm thick, the Elite 1000 is impressively tough for its slender 75g weight.

A number of upgrades introduced as part of Trident 3 materialise in the Elite 1000. The application of Grade X1 GL C1 Super-LumiNova® fulfils a long-standing customer request for a fully lumed bezel, which also sports an orange 15-minute track and lume triangle. A glossy blue dial, combined with Super-LumiNova®-filled hands and brushed and polished indexes, offers exceptional clarity in all lighting conditions; our signature trident-shaped counter-balance also makes a welcome return.

If you find you spend a lot of time in the ocean's mesopelagic zone - or maybe you just fancy a beautifully robust piece of engineering on your wrist - the C60 Trident Elite 1000 is the watch for you. With just 300 of these special chronometers available, catch it while you can.


This COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres) version of the Sellita SW200 has been tested in a range of positions and temperatures to gain its valued 'chronometer' certification. To achieve this, a mechanical watch must achieve an accuracy during these tests of between -4/+6 seconds a day. Only 6% of all Swiss movements attain this, while its appearance in many watches in far higher price brackets confirms its place as a trusted calibre throughout the industry.

Inside the C60 Trident Elite 1000, the SW200's rotor has received a Colimaçoné finish before being engraved with the twin flags pattern reflective of our Anglo-Swiss partnership. Combined with a 38 hour power reserve, plus an anti-shock system and 4Hz frequency working together to deliver a smooth eight ticks a second throughout all manner of activities, this chronometer-certified version of SW200 can be relied upon wherever the Elite 1000 goes.
