    I would love to pickup another CWard sometime down the road but the logo pretty much kills the possibility of buying a new one.
    I don't mind the new trident so much but I agree on the logo. Old one was better.

    Not a very dappered setting, but this shot shows how nice the lume is on the Seiko Sport 150. It's pretty blurry, but it really captures how bright the hands and markers are.

    I don't own any but there are tons of images on Google. The old logo was the "Chr.Ward" towards the 12 position. New is "Christopher Ward" stacked at the 9.

    Winding my Speedy on days I'm wearing it is not a 'hassle' at all nor does it take time out of my day. I usually wind it when I get to work and am waiting in the elevator or when I'm logging in to my laptop in the morning.

    The issue with the manual wind is if you own multiple watches and you don't wear this one for a few days. Then i forget to manually wind it and end up having to reset the time next time I wear it.

    that happens on my autos too. I dont mind setting my watch most days but I have to admit that on some days I only pick from what is already set. Either an auto that still has power reserve or a quartz. I also avoid the day complication on autos if I can. I dont even do date if I can.

    Photos grabbed from Google and ChW's website.

    Trident pros side by side


    Trident vintage. Looks like this is actually the only one with the restyled trident, as well. They kept the sharper, more angular version on the pro.

    Thanks @drocpsu. Annnd as luck would have it the super restrictive firewall at my work isn't allowing me to view the images. <sigh> looks like it'll have to wait until I get home tonight.

    Wow! Is this replacing the green one or have you fallen down the Rolex rabbit hole?
