    • I had my straps in several boxes and containers and finally got some better storage for them. These are basic plastic stackable jewelry trays that can hold a good number of straps. They are not very high but that's a good thing so you won't keep stacking many straps on top of each other.

      After I got things organized, I realized I had more straps than I thought and found some I didn't even know I had. I have to get another set of three for some more straps and bracelets. Possibly for some watches and tools, spring bars and other small things as well. These are 1" height and are $18 for 3 trays so not expensive. They also come in 1.5" and 2" height and you can get soft liners and compartment inserts as well. Find it here on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2ClOlER
    • Bold and legible in both its steel or diamond-like carbon (DLC) case configurations, the C8 Flyer Automatic is a strong entry point into the world of Christopher Ward's mechanical aviation watches. £595 Description Introducing a Sellita SW200-1 movement to our aviation range, the C8 Flyer Automatic shares the same case and aesthetic as pieces like the C8 Power Reserve and UTC Worldtimer, without any sacrifice made in the attention to detail and design. 

      Inspired by the Spitfire's dashboard clock, legibility is key. Gunmetal indexes, hands and double-sized numerals are filled with SuperLuminova, contrasting strongly against the Automatic's matte black dial; its baton markers have also been cut away, with depth provided elsewhere by a sloped and fully tracked outer minuterie ring. Anti-reflective sapphire crystal ensures minimal reflections in all conditions.

      The Automatic's 44mm case references the larger sizes worn by fighter pilots - for example, the enlarged crown is a nod to those who had to operate theirs whilst wearing thick flying gloves. On the reverse, the backplate has been deep-stamped with an image of the Farnborough wind tunnels, used to develop icons of British aviation including the Spitfire and the Concorde.

      British by design and British by nature - this is a watch that isn't afraid to declare its roots in a heroic period of the RAF's history - the C8 Flyer Automatic's precision is assured by its robust Swiss-made movement. Available with a diamond-like carbon (DLC) or brushed and polished steel case, which one will you choose? Movement With 26 jewels and an anti-shock system (necessary for ensuring smooth timekeeping throughout everyday use), the Sellita 
      SW200-1 is an industry-revered movement. Dependable and accurate, it features a self-winding mechanism and a 38 hour power reserve, while a date wheel sits at 3 o'clock.

      Boasting a classic frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (that's eight ticks a second), the SW200-1 powers the C8 Flyer Automatic with supreme precision. Technical Diameter: 44mm Height: 12.05mm Weight: 96g Calibre: Sellita SW200-1 Case: 316L stainless steel Water resistance: 5 ATM (50 metres) Timing tolerance: +20/-20 seconds/day Dial colour: Black Lume: T-C1 SuperLuminova Strap width: 22mm Strap colour: Camel Lug to lug: 53.2mm Features Swiss made 26 jewel self-winding mechanical movement Brushed and polished stainless steel case Multi-layered dial with lume-dipped hands Deep-stamped screw-down backplate Push-down crown with serrated teeth and deep-stamped wind turbine motif Anti-reflective flat sapphire crystal Date window with black disc White SuperLuminova numerals and indexes Unique engraved serial number Vintage finish Tiber leather strap with hand-sewn whip stitch

    • Bringing the worlds of military and civilian aviation design into one watch, the C8 UTC Worldtimer puts the wearer directly in touch with cities around the globe thanks to its two-piece worldtimer dial and 'UTC' functionality. £975 Description Named after Universal Coordinated Time - a term preferred in aviation over 'GMT' - the C8 UTC Worldtimer offers the wearer near-unlimited timing possibilities. 

      The watch takes its design cues from the rest of the C8 Flyer Collection, which references the Smith's Mark II A clock used in Spitfires during World War II. All carry engravings of the historic aviation wind tunnels in Farnborough where the aerodynamics of British aircraft like the Spitfire and Concorde were honed. 

      Perhaps the most striking feature of the timepiece is the two-piece dial, which features a crown-operated worldtimer bezel showing prominent international cities, meaning the wearer can immediately work out the time anywhere on Earth. For those looking to keep track of one timezone in particular, the 24-hour GMT hand will be an invaluable tool. 

      The military feel is continued with the large Arabic numerals, raised indexes and 'pipette' hands, all of which are coated with Superluminova for visibility at low light. Meanwhile, the 44mm case is available in stainless steel or with a black DLC finish. Movement This fine ETA calibre ('calibre' is the fancy word in the watch industry describing a movement) with dual-time functionality allows for the time to be told in two time zones simultaneously - hence its use on 'GMT' watches. 

      When fully wound, it delivers 42 hours of continuous power, while vibrating at a rate of eight times per second (28,800 times an hour). 

      This frequency allows for excellent accuracy when regulated by a Christopher Ward expert. Technical Diameter: 44mm Height: 11.5mm Weight: 88g Calibre: ETA 2893-2 Water Resistance: 5 ATM Strap: 22mm Vibrations: 28800 per hour Timing tolerance: +20/-20 seconds per day Lug to Lug: 53.2mm Features Swiss made Self-winding mechanical movement with GMT function 42 hour power reserve Date calendar Central hacking seconds Anti-shock system Marine-grade stainless steel case Screw-in back plate with Farnborough wind tunnel design Large twin crowns Anti-reflective sapphire crystal Multi-directional rotating internal bezel displaying international destinations Gunmetal hands T-C1 Super-Luminova coating on hands and indexes Vintage finish leather strap with hand-sewn whip stitch
