C65 Trident GMT
World traveller? Your watch is here
Three hands good. Four hands better. That’s certainly the case with the C65 Trident GMT.
While it has the construction of a diving watch, the watch’s Swiss-made Sellita SW330 gives it the ability to tell the time in another time zone. Available in regular or ‘Pepsi’ versions, the 24-hour bezel is made from brushed stainless steel, with its numerals engraved and filled with black lacquer.
Another notable addition is the C65’s GMT hand, finished in a popping orange or red that complements the rest of the dial’s lume-filled indexes and hands perfectly. There’s also a date window at 3 o’clock.
The GMT has a brushed-and-polished 41mm case, 150m water resistance and a deep-stamped Trident backplate. Baton indexes at 12 and 6 replace the Arabic numerals of the earlier C65, while the removal of millisecond markers on its black dial supply a stripped-back feel.
And thanks to the slim Sellita SW330 movement, the C65 Trident GMT measures in at a sleek 12.05mm. Which means it’ll look good on every wrist – and under every cuff.

Made by one of the most respected names in Swiss watchmaking, the SW330 is a true ‘GMT’ movement.
This means that it has an extra hand that follows a 24-hour path around the dial. It can be set by the wearer – using an exterior bezel – to set the time in another time zone.
The SW330 also has a date wheel, plus an anti-shock mechanism that helps it maintain accuracy even when it receives knocks and jolts.
Meanwhile, its seconds hand will sweep smoothly at a satisfying eight ticks per second.
Referencing classic diving/travel watches of the 1960s, the C65 Trident GMT brings water resistance together with GMT functionality. On sea. Or land. You’re covered.
Engineered in brushed aluminium, the bezel is stamped with the numerals of the 24-hour clock. And every time you turn it, you’ll hear – and feel – that soothing click.
The light-catcher case is the product of endless testing and research. The result is a case that’s slim, graceful and – due to its engineered shape – sits low on the wrist.
The glass-box crystal, a feature of 1960s watches, has a beautifully curved shape that’s entirely in touch with the retro spirit of this watch.
GMT done easy
Originally designed for pilots, the GMT function lets you monitor the time in another time zone. Just line it up with a time on the 24-hour bezel, and it’ll stay true as long as it’s wound up.
Use the GMT function
Using the fourth hand in conjunction with its 24-hour bezel, a GMT watch will let you monitor the time in another time zone. Here’s how to set yours correctly.
A ‘GMT’ watch lets you monitor the time in another time zone as well as the one you’re in. It does so by using the fourth ‘GMT’ hand – which travels around the dial over 24 hours – in conjunction with the 24-hour numerals on the bezel.
