    Christopher Ward C8 Flyer Quartz

    Combining British influences with the Swiss precision of its quartz movement, the C8 Flyer Quartz is for those who seek a boldly different take on an aviation watch. Description A watch of superior accuracy thanks to its Swiss-made quartz movement, the C8 Flyer Quartz embraces the distinctive aesthetic of our aviation collection. The results are dynamic, legible and befittingly British, thanks to a design informed by the Smiths Mk II clock found inside the Spitfire. Underneath anti-reflective crystal, the Quartz's dial is finished in matte black, with cutaway markers revealing a lume-coated two layered dial underneath. Gunmetal hands, numerals and and indexes are also filled with SuperLuminova for exceptional legibility in all conditions. Available with a diamond-like carbon (DLC) or steel finish, the Quartz's 44mm case references the larger sizes of yesteryear. For reasons of practicality, the push-down crown has grooved teeth to assist grip, while an engraved profile of a wind tunnel - also deep-stamped into the backplate - is a fitting reference to the Farnborough facility that helped transform the fortunes of the British aviation industry. Movement An ultra-reliable Swiss quartz movement with five jewels and a gold-plated finish, the Ronda 715 is accurate to -10/+20 seconds a month. It also has an extremely long battery life of up to 60 months, cleverly extended when not in use by having the crown stem out. In this mode, battery usage is reduced by 70 per cent. £450 Technical Diameter: 44mm Height: 11.25mm Weight: 72g Calibre: Ronda 715 Case: 316L stainless steel Water resistance: 5 ATM (50 metres) Tolerance: -10/+20 seconds/month Battery life: 45 months Dial colour: Black Lume: Old Radium SuperLuminova Strap width: 22mm Strap colour: Camel Lug to lug: 53.2mm Features Swiss made 5 jewel Swiss made quartz movement 60 month battery life Diamond-like carbon (DLC) 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 Light Old Radium SuperLuminova numerals and indexes Unique engraved serial number Vintage finish Tiber leather strap with hand-sewn whip stitch
  2. Do you believe in “happy accidents”? – we do, and this wonderful Trident timepiece offers perfect evidence. When the first sample cases came through it was obvious we had not been clear enough in the specification file and, instead of a fully brushed case being set in front of us to assess, we were confronted with one that had facets that were both polished as well as brushed. After the initial groans had faded and before initiating another sampling round, something happened – the more time we spent in the presence of this hybrid, the more apparent it was that we had, by accident, created something special and unique – a design that when teamed with either a complementary bracelet or beautifully hand-crafted leather strap, is a contemporary take on a vintage aesthetic. Modern vintage, positive mistake – this is rich territory for fans of the oxymoron-and in this instance they definitely apply!

  4. Titanium is a strong, light and extremely corrosive resistant metal. Indeed, it has the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element. All-in-all, therefore, it makes a perfect diving companion. In this new interpretation of the Trident Pro 600 (the 600 refers to the 600 metre/2000 feet water resistance) a symphony of titanium greys have been introduced across all elements of the watch producing a watch that is not only a professional diving tool, but perhaps the most attractive Trident yet conceived. From the two-tone brushed grey titanium case – the darker grey results from a diamond-like-carbon (DLC) finish, to the matt ceramic insert of the bezel, this is a watch with genuine “on-trend” credentials. The uber-cool looks continue with the matt grey titanium indexes and hands, which are filled with blue emission SuperLuminova, and the warm grey printing of the minute track and brand logo. Titanium Variation #1, available with a titanium bracelet, new-design rubber or hand-crafted leather straps, is a stunning addition to the acclaimed Trident Collection that, paradoxically, for all its understated style makes the strongest possible statement about its wearer. Features Swiss made Self-winding mechanical movement 38 hour power reserve Date calendar Central hacking seconds Anti-shock system 43mm, titanium grade 2 case Uni-directional ceramic bezel Water resistant to 600m/ 2000ft Screw-down deep-stamped 3D back plate Screw-in crown Unique engraved serial number 3.44mm anti-reflective sapphire crystal SuperLuminova blue emission indicies, bezel markers and hands Matt black one piece dial Signature Trident counter-balance Titanium bracelet with motif clasp Presentation case and owner’s handbook Technical Diameter: 43mm Height: 13.30mm Case weight: 75 g Calibre: ETA 2824-2 / Sellita SW200-1 Vibrations: 28.800 per hour Case: Titanium Grade 2 Water resistance: 600m / 2000 ft Dial colour: Matt black Lume: SuperLuminova Strap width: 22mm Titanium bracelet Rubber strap Leather strap
  5. The brooding black 43mm case of C60 Trident Titanium Pro 600 Variation #2 is relieved by the sharp white lume of the indexes, hands and numerals of the matt black ceramic bezel. It’s a powerful combination which is appropriate for a watch whose titanium case is finished with a diamond-like-carbon (DLC) coating. A watch with such “Black ops” appeal inevitably has more than just its masculine good looks to offer. This is a watch that can resist water pressure up to 600 metres (2000 feet) below the surface, has a uni-directional bezel with a matt-finish zirconium ceramic insert and enjoys a precision-engineered fluidity of line that would benefit any water bound covert operation. Of course, most owners of Trident Titanium Variation #2 will not be members of the Special Boat Service or Navy Seals but, with this most macho of Tridents on the wrist, who will know? Features Swiss made Self-winding mechanical movement 38 hour power reserve Date calendar Central hacking seconds Anti-shock system 43mm, titanium grade 2 case Uni-directional ceramic bezel Water resistant to 600m/ 2000ft Screw-down deep-stamped 3D back plate Screw-in crown Unique engraved serial number 3.44mm anti-reflective sapphire crystal SuperLuminova blue emission indicies, bezel markers and hands Matt black one piece dial Signature Trident counter-balance High-density rubber dive strap with black motif titanium buckle Presentation case and owner’s handbook Technical Diameter: 43mm Height: 13.30mm Case weight: 75 g Calibre: ETA 2824-2 / Sellita SW200-1 Vibrations: 28.800 per hour Case: Titanium Grade 2 Water resistance: 600m / 2000 ft Dial colour: Matt black Lume: SuperLuminova Strap width: 22mm Titanium bracelet Leather strap Rubber strap
  6. For those occurrences where something extra special is required, the C7 Rapide Chronograph Automatic sits in pole position. Bold and dynamic, a black and steel colour scheme matches the mechanical precision of the Valjoux 7750 found within its four-piece case. Description Precision, innovative design, and the finest quality materials: essential components for professional racing teams hunting the podium, but also the DNA of our motorsport watches. With a Swiss-made Valjoux 7750 at its core, the C7 Rapide Chronograph Automatic is built upon the finest possible horological foundation. A strong cohesion of black and steel surfaces, the Chronograph Automatic inherits our four-piece case design, inspired by the aesthetics of powerful modern sportscars. The precision of its construction is emphasised by a matte aluminium central band that accentuates the way its tactile curving lugs coalesce into the remainder of the case. Its form warrants further inspection - and admiration. That bold colour scheme carries over onto the dial. Its vertically positioned bi-compax dials have received a sunray finish which, when combined with the polished edges of its double size numerals and multi-faceted indexes, captures the light from all angles. Due to those subdials' locations, our award-winning twin flag logo features at 3 o'clock, directly opposite from a small second indicator. A tachymeter and date window offer further functionality, ensuring the C7 Rapide Chronograph Automatic warrants its place as the mechanical king of the Collection. Movement Developed in 1974 by movement maker, Valjoux, the 7750 has been the most widely used mechanical chronograph movement ever since. One of the first movements to be designed by computer, the 7750 only winds in one direction and this, combined with the heavily weighted rotor arm, gives the movement a singular sound, producing a feeling that the watch is 'alive' on the wrist. Technical Diameter: 42mm Height: 14.3mm Weight: 95g Calibre: Valjoux 7750 Case: 316L stainless steel and aluminium Water resistance: 10 ATM (100 metres) Vibrations: 28,800 per hour Timing tolerance: Tolerance: -15/+15 seconds per day Dial colour: Black Lume: SuperLuminova SLN-T-C1 Strap width: 22mm Strap colour: Black Lug to lug: 48.2mm Features Swiss made 25 jewel self-winding mechanical chronograph Hour, minute, second and date calendar, with 60 second, 30 minute and 12 hour chronograph indication Marine-grade stainless steel and aluminium four-piece case Bi-compax dial layout with sunray-finish subdials Tachymeter Aluminium bezel with 5 minute markers Deep-stamped screw-down backplate Embossed screw-down crown Anti-reflective flat sapphire crystal Date window with black disc Polished indexes filled with SuperLuminova Unique engraved serial number Piccari leather strap with marine-grade stainless steel dress clasp
  7. Offering chronograph functionality alongside the precision of its Swiss-made quartz movement, the Quartz Chronograph differentiates itself from the rest of the Collection with lateral bi-compax subdials - ideal for track days, or perhaps just timing how long you've been sat in the rush hour traffic! Description In the world of motorsport, each second counts. The charismatic C7 Rapide Quartz Chronograph can be relied upon to help track every single one of them, thanks to its Swiss-made Ronda movement. Immediately eye-catching are its two subdials: the first a 30 minute chronograph counter, with the other small seconds; a speedometer-inspired red hand also allows increased timing precision. The outer tachymeter is an obligatory addition to any motorsport watch, while the dial is framed by a fully tracked minute ring. A constant presence throughout the Collection are brushed and polished multi-faceted hands, filled with SuperLuminova for exceptional visibility. The Quartz Chronograph adopts our distinctive new case design, whose dynamic lines are inspired by the way high-performance cars are constantly streamlined to achieve optimum power and control. Elaborately constructed from four individual parts, their brushed and polished surfaces also result in a slimmer profile on the wrist. Our twin flag logo appears on the crosshatched crown, in addition to being deep stamped into the Rapide's backplate. Available with three different dial finishes - black; white with black subdials; and green with white - the C7 Rapide Chronograph Quartz is the perfect motorsport watch for those who recognise quality and precision at an outstandingly competitive price. Movement Chosen for the placement of its subdials at 9 and 3 o'clock, the Swiss-made Ronda 5021.D features a 30 minute counter and small second capability, plus add and split functions. Gold-plated on its exterior and with a 54 month battery life, its 10 jewels will reduce friction and maintain reliability over extended periods of time. Another useful feature is its power saving mechanism: by leaving the crown out, battery usage is reduced by 70%. £495 - £560 Black/Red: C07-42QCH1-S0KK0 White/Red: C07-42QCH1-S0KW0 Green/Red: C07-42QCH1-S0KV0 Technical Diameter: 42mm Height: 10.35mm Case weight: 73g Calibre: Ronda 5021.D Timing tolerance: -10/+20 seconds/month Case: 316L stainless steel Water resistance: 10 ATM (100 metres) Dial colour: White Lume: SuperLuminova SLN-T-C1 Strap width: 22mm Strap colour: Black Lug to Lug: 48.2mm Features Swiss made 10 jewel quartz movement 54 month battery life Hour, minute, small second, date, central stop second (1/1 sec), 30 minute counter Marine-grade stainless steel four-piece case Aluminium bezel with 5 minute markers Bi-compax dial layout with extra matte subdials Deep-stamped screw-down backplate Screw-down crown Anti-reflective flat sapphire crystal Polished indexes filled with SuperLuminova Unique engraved serial number Piccari leather strap with marine-grade stainless steel dress clasp Luxurious presentation case and owner's handbook
  8. Possessing a glorious blue and steel colour palette, the C7 Rapide Chronograph COSC is reminiscent of the breath-taking supercars you see fly around tracks in the modern day. It's also just as exclusive: only 500 have been made. Description Blue, bold, beautiful. Limited to 500 pieces, the C7 Rapide Chronograph COSC is a watch that makes a statement, the same way a supercar does. Powered by the unerring ETA 251.264, the Chronograph COSC features three subdials, each sporting a concentric design and sunray finish; they form a lively combination of colour and texture. Our twin flag logo sits at 12 o'clock, while the hands of the two upper subdials, plus its speedometer-inspired chronograph second hand, are finished in orange. A mix of new and old, modern-styled numerals adorn the COSC's blue aluminium bezel, while two vintage style pushers take pride of place next to the crown. As part of our special four-piece case design, a central band - constructed from aluminium to save weight - is finished in matte blue. Its lugs have been individually stamped, turned and milled to achieve their arched shape, influenced by the many powerful chassis shapes recognisable throughout the highest levels of racing. Precision has always been an intrinsic part of motorsport. The Chronograph COSC is the embodiment of it; not only in its movement, which can track tenths of a second, but also in the delicate blend of blue and steel that makes the Chronograph COSC beautifully unique. Movement When it came to finding the best available movement for the Rapide Chronograph COSC, it quickly became evident the ETA 251.264 BD was the only logical choice. Aside from the usual hours and minute hands (seconds are relocated to a subdial at 6 o'clock), 10th of a second and 12 hour counters work in conjunction with second and minute chronograph hands. Powered by five stepping motors and featuring ETA's PreciDrive technology, the thermo-compensated 251.264 can regulate its motor pulses based upon changes in ambient temperature, guaranteeing precise timekeeping in a range of climates and conditions. Similarly, its PowerDrive functionality ensures its chronograph motor can speed up to more than 200Hz - in other words, a hyper-sensitive 200 individual hand movements a second. When combined with 27 jewels that help alleviate friction and improve accuracy, the 251.264 is a byword for accuracy and dependability, as proven by its chronometer certification - only 6% of all Swiss movements achieve this outstanding feat. Technical Diameter: 42mm Height: 11.55mm Weight: 71g Calibre: ETA 251.264 BD PRD (PreciDrive and PowerDrive) Case: Marine-grade steel and aluminium Water resistance: 10 ATM (100 metres) Frequency: 32,768 Hz Tolerance: -10/+10 seconds per year Dial Colour: Blue Lume: SuperLuminova SLN-T-C1 Strap width: 22mm Strap colour: Black Lug to lug: 48.2mm Features Limited edition of 500 pieces Swiss made 27 jewel quartz chronograph chronometer 54 month battery life Hour, minute, small second, date, centre stop second (1/1 sec), 30 minute counter, 12 hours counter Marine-grade stainless steel and blue aluminium four-piece case Tri-compax dial layout with sunray finish subdials Aluminium bezel with 5 minute markers Anti-reflective flat sapphire crystal Deep-stamped screw-down backplate Screw-down crown Polished indexes filled with SuperLuminova Vintage oak leather strap with dress clasp Unique engraved serial number

    Christopher Ward C7 Rapide Automatic

    £695 - £760 Blue/Orange: C07-42ADA1-S0KB0 Black/Red: C07-42ADA1-S0KK0 With the launch of the C7 Rapide Automatic, we are proud to finally add a three-handed automatic model to our Rapide Collection. Utilising a Swiss-made Sellita SW200-1 movement and featuring our new four-piece case, the Automatic’s dial design will excite those who long for the moment the five red lights go out. For those who had been waiting for our motorsport collection to add a three-handed automatic option to its ranks, the C7 Rapide Automatic is the thrilling addition they've been waiting for. Thanks to a choice of two bold new dial finishes, it's the perfect mechanical entry to our Rapide Collection. Description With the relaunch of our Rapide Collection, there was no better time to introduce the option of a three-handed automatic watch to our motorsport range. Featuring a Swiss-made Sellita SW200-1 movement, the new C7 Rapide Automatic combines mechanical prowess with an all-new aesthetic and case design. The results are dynamic, detailed and daring. From one glance at its dial, the Rapide Automatic's automotive influences are immediately apparent: double-height and polished numerals - filled in their centre with SuperLuminova for enhanced legibility - alternate with sloping and faceted indexes. A full minute track with inner triple minute marks provides all-important precision reading the time, its first ten minutes highlighted like a dashboard's rev counter to match the colour of its second hand. Our award-winning 'twin flag' logo appears at 12 o'clock. The Automatic also features the Rapide Collection's new case design. Comprised of four separate pieces that have been inspired by the sleek architecture of high-performance sports cars, assembly is a complex process. Its lugs, for example - turned and milled to create their distinctive curved shape - also help support the middle part of the case, while a matte black aluminium band provides a slimmer feel. A clever cohesion of smooth arcs and textures, it's rounded off with our twin-flag logo engraved on the crown and its deep-stamped backplate. Movement With 26 jewels and an anti-shock system (necessary for ensuring smooth timekeeping throughout those tight chicanes), the Sellita SW200-1 is a popular automatic 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 C7 Rapide Automatic with supreme precision. Technical Diameter: 42mm Height: 11.15mm Weight: 70g Calibre: Sellita SW200-1 Case: 316L stainless steel and aluminium Water resistance: 10 ATM (100 metres) Vibrations: 28,800 per hour Timing tolerance: -20/+20 seconds/day Dial colour: Blue Lume: SuperLuminova SLN-T-C1 Bracelet width: 22mm Lug to lug: 48.2mm Features Swiss made 26 jewel self-winding mechanical movement 38 hour power reserve Date calendar Marine-grade stainless steel and aluminium four-piece case Aluminium bezel with 5 minute markers Deep-stamped screw-down backplate Embossed screw-down crown Anti-reflective flat sapphire crystal Polished indexes filled with SuperLuminova Unique engraved serial number Marine-grade stainless steel bracelet with micro-adjustable ratchet clasp Luxurious presentation case and owner's handbook
  10. £995 - C01-43AWT2-S00W0 Released: November 2018 In the C1 Grand Malvern Worldtimer, we are proud to unveil our first ‘true’ worldtimer watch. Containing an updated version of Calibre JJ03, our re-engineered in-house modification now powers a 24-hour GMT ring that circles around a dial containing both a world map and an international cities ring, allowing its wearer to read the time anywhere across the world in a moment’s glance. Description The long-awaited follow up to the C9 Worldtimer, the C1 Grand Malvern Worldtimer marks the return of Calibre JJ03 to the CW Collection. And in much the same way that our in-house worldtimer modification has undergone some changes, the C1 is a completely different instrument to its predecessor, inside and out. The C1 Grand Malvern Worldtimer posed an interesting challenge for all at CW. How could this genre of watch, stereotypically (and often out of necessity) known for its busy dials, stay in keeping with the Grand Malvern Collection's understated aesthetic? To start, the crisp blue and white colour scheme found throughout the Collection is present and correct; it's applied with pleasing rationale to the new North Pole-centred world map - white for land, blue for the world's oceans - with one splash of colour found in an orange "radar" marker (there's more on that in the 'movement' section' opposite). For a watch displaying the text of 24 international cities around its exterior, clarity became a crucial factor. As a result, the C1's hour and minute hands have been filled with T-C1 SuperLumiNova® to assist with legibility on that red-eye flight, while its case measures in at a necessary 43.5mm. But it's not cumbersome: thanks to the Grand Malvern's signature case design, a structure that blends brushed and polished surfaces with artfully sculpted 'light-catcher' lines, the C1 Grand Malvern Worldtimer offers just the right proportions for a watch that allows its wearer to tell the time across the world in a single glance. Movement The third of Christopher Ward's JJ Calibres - a series dedicated to unique in-house modifications of many pre-existing movements - JJ03 is based upon the ETA 2893, the industry's go-to automatic GMT calibre. Whereas the previous iteration of JJ03 found in the C9 Worldtimer re-geared the 2893 to feature airport destinations as a second time zone and featured an hour hand that took 24 hours to complete a revolution, the new envisioning of JJ03 offers a more simple approach. Reverting to 12-hour timing, it also powers a moving 24-hour disc which is read in conjunction with the international cities around it. Turning the crown clockwise will engage this 24-hour disc; turn the crown anti-clockwise, and you'll have control of what we believe to be a unique mechanical development in watchmaking: our time zone-denoting orange city indicator. An innovative addition to the C1 Grand Malvern Worldtimer, this adjustable marker is set against the city of the user's choice, and when read in conjunction with its moving GMT ring offers an immediate reminder of your chosen city's 24-hour time. Such technical pedigree deserves the aesthetic embellishment to match, which is why JJ03 is visible through an exhibition window on the C1's reverse; the outer arc of its rotor has been filled with blue enamel - a detail reserved for members of the JJ Calibre family. Technical Diameter: 43.5mm Height: 11.55mm Weight: 66g Calibre: ETA 2893 with JJ03 module Case: 316L stainless steel Water resistance: 3 ATM (30 metres) Vibrations: 28,800 per hour (4 Hz) Timing tolerance: +20/-20 seconds per day Lume: SuperLumiNova® SLN-T-C1 Strap width: 22mm Strap colour: Blue Lug to Lug: 51.9mm Features Swiss made Self-winding 21 jewel movement with 'JJ03' in-house Worldtimer module Unique orange "radar" marker to highlight chosen timezone 40 hour power reserve Colimacone rotor finish filled with blue lacquer Polished surgical-grade stainless steel case with brushed sides Blue and white worldtimer dial Rotating 24-hour bezel with night and day colouring International cities ring with chamfered finish Anti-reflective domed sapphire crystal Push-down crown with twin flag motif Brushed and polished steel hands Hour and minute hands filled with T-C1 SuperLumiNova® Exhibition backplate with unique engraved serial number Italian Shell Cordovan strap with Bader deployment and quick-release pins for easy changing Luxurious presentation case and owner's handbook
  11. £725 The Trident Pro 600 is a bestseller for a reason. With a stainless steel case and scratch-resistant bezel, it's a classic diving watch with ground-breaking technical capabilities. Description A true CW bestseller, the Pro 600 combines modern dive watch looks with the robust build quality you'd expect of a Trident. The re-engineered 316L marine-grade stainless steel case now incorporates a zirconia (ZrO2) ceramic unidirectional bezel for scratch resistance, while the watch is watertight at depths of up to 600 metres (2,000ft) - twice that of its predecessor. The dial retains the guilloche wave pattern of the first Tridents but the new indexes are now deep-filled with SuperLuminova SLN T C1 for additional luminosity. Our new logo sits at 9 o'clock. The crown - embossed with our twin flag motif - is easier to use, while the backplate has the Trident motif deep-stamped and prominent. And if the self-winding movement is the same it's only because there's no better available mechanism for this watch. Movement Swiss movement manufacturer Sellita started as an outsourced manufacturer of ETA's 2824-2 movement. Changes in the industry, and the expiry of IP rights associated with the 2824, led to Sellita developing its own virtually identical version, the SW200-1. The only real difference is the addition of a 26th jewel which sits just below the ratchet wheel and reduces friction associated with automatic winding. 43mm - C60-43ADA2-S0KK0-B0 Technical Diameter: 43mm Height: 13.30mm Case weight: 104g Weight with 21cm bracelet: 203g Calibre: Sellita SW200-1 Case: 316L Stainless steel Water resistance: 60 ATM (600 metres) Vibrations: 28,800 per hour Timing tolerance: +20/-20 seconds per day Dial Colour: Black Lume: SuperLuminova SLN-T-C1 Strap width: 22mm Lug to Lug: 51.5mm 38mm - C60-38ADA2-S0KK0-B0 Technical Diameter: 38mm Height: 12.70mm Case weight: 73g Weight with 21cm bracelet: 168g Calibre: Sellita SW200-1 Case: 316L Stainless steel Vibrations: 28,800 per hour Timing tolerance: +20/-20 seconds per day Water resistance: 60 ATM (600 metres) Dial Colour: Black Lume: SuperLuminova SLN-T-C1 Strap width: 20mm Lug to Lug: 45.5mm Features Swiss made Self-winding mechanical movement 38 hour power reserve Date calendar Central hacking seconds Anti-shock system Marine-grade, stainless steel case Embossed screw-in crown Unidirectional zirconia ceramic bezel 3.4mm anti-reflective sapphire crystal Guilloche wave pattern dial Super-Luminova indexes and hands Signature Trident counter-balance on seconds hand Screw-down deep-stamped 3D backplate Unique engraved serial number Marine-grade stainless steel bracelet with micro-adjustable ratchet clasp Luxury presentation case and owner's handbook
  12. 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.

    Christopher Ward C65 Trident Diver

    A watch in the vein of the iconic dive designs produced during the mid-1960s, the C65 Trident Diver shares features in keeping with watches from that period - a hand-wound movement, a glassbox sapphire crystal - but builds on its vintage design cues with the finest modern day Swiss engineering. Description Does a watch need to have been constructed decades ago to be considered vintage? This was the question in the minds of all at Christopher Ward during the creation of the C65 Trident Diver, the latest addition to the C65 family - a range known for its blend of a diving, sporty aesthetic with dress watch stylings. Occupying a unique space in-between our dive and dress collections, the C65 Trident Diver adopts technical qualities typical of a dive watch made fifty years ago. Matching the case sizes of many '60s divers, the C65 too measures in at the sweet spot of 41mm - ensuring its place as a versatile piece that can be worn anywhere, anytime. Its marine-grade stainless steel case construction utilises a variety of polished and brushed surfaces, whose combined effect creates a watch that looks even thinner on the wrist. The presence of a glassbox sapphire crystal, combined with baton-shaped hands filled with Old Radium SuperLumiNova® (our dive range's Trident-shaped seconds counterbalance is of course also present) confirm the C65 Trident Diver's vintage credentials, regardless of whether you opt for either its black or blue colour scheme. Its 150m water resistance may have since been surpassed by other more technically advanced releases, but that's not the point of the C65; this is a watch that captures the authenticity of the analogue age - specifically, the look and feel of iconic dive watches prevalent throughout the 60s - but infuses it with the capabilities and technologies allowed by modern day horology. Movement Behind the Diver's trident-stamped caseback - there were no display backs during the 60s - a Swiss-made Sellita SW210 hand-wound movement keeps excellent time. A slim movement at only 3.35mm high, the Sellita 210-1 shares many of the same components as its self-winding cousin, the Sellita SW200-1. A classic frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (that's eight ticks a second) delivers 42 hours of continuous, accurate timekeeping once fully wound. Significantly, it has been also decorated with Christopher Ward's distinctive Colimaçoné pattern. It's a feature that few will ever see, but remains indicative of the commitment to detail throughout this special watch.

  14. While the C60 Trident Bronze "Ombré" COSC Limited Edition's bronze alloy case will develop its own weather look over time, its artisan hand-finished dial promises a unique appearance from day one. Their aesthetics may differ, but each of the 300 made in this limited edition share something in common: world class levels of accuracy, reliably provided by the Swiss-made chronometer-certified movement at its heart. Description Since the arrival of the C60 Trident Bronze Pro 600, our bronze Collection has grown in both size and popularity as customers found a robust bronze diver that wouldn't have them gulping for air when they discovered its price. The C60 Trident Bronze "Ombré" COSC Limited Edition continues to uphold this trend, whilst also including a chronometer-certified Swiss mechanical movement inside its bronze alloy case. But this 300-piece limited edition's most intriguing feature, as well as its name, is drawn from its dial. Each has been constructed from brass, with an artisan's hand delicately applying a series of distressed markings to ensure all possess their own distinctive character. This rough-hewn finish fades into a black varnish around the dial's exterior, linking smoothly with the colour and texture of the sandblasted ceramic bezel insert around it. Water-resistant to depths of 600m, and bearing the hallmarks of our bestselling dive range - our signature trident is present on the "Ombré's" second hand counterbalance and is deep-stamped into its stainless steel backplate - the C60 Trident Bronze "Ombré" COSC Limited Edition is a bronze model that, somehow, manages to be even more one-of-a-kind than the rest. Movement Inside the Ombré, a chronometer-certified version of Sellita's SW200-1 automatic movement provides world-class levels of accuracy, as well as the guaranteed levels of reliability that have made it such a popular choice for watchmakers throughout the industry. Tested by the Swiss institute Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres to confirm a timekeeping tolerance of -4/+6 seconds per day in a number of positions and temperatures, the SW200-1 also features an Incabloc shock system - a necessity for a watch as suited to the ordeals of an active lifestyle as the Ombré. The SW200-1's 38-hour power reserve also means the Ombré can withstand being left unworn for over a day; but with its striking bronze case and meticulously prepared dial, why would you want to spend that much time away from it anyway? £995 Technical Diameter: 43mm Height: 13.3mm Case weight: 107g Calibre: Sellita SW200-1 Vibrations: 28,800 per hour (4Hz) Timing tolerance: -4/+6 seconds per day Case: Bronze C5191 (CuSn6) Backplate: 316L stainless steel Water resistance: 60 ATM (600 metres) Dial Colour: Ombré Lume: TC-1 SuperLumiNova® Strap width: 22mm Strap colour: Brown Lug to Lug: 51.5mm Features Swiss made 25 jewel self-winding chronometer-certified movement 38 hour power reserve Date calendar Central hacking seconds Anti-shock system Raw bronze C5191 (CuSn6) case with screw-down deep-stamped 3D backplate Embossed screw-down crown Unidirectional raw bronze C5191 (CuSn6) bezel with sandblasted ceramic insert 3.4mm anti-reflective flat top sapphire crystal Ombré finish dial with black varnish exterior SuperLumiNova®-coated indexes and hands Signature Trident counter-balance on second hand Unique engraved serial number Italian handcrafted distressed vintage oak leather strap with bronze Christopher Ward buckle and quick-release pins for easy changing Luxurious presentation case and owner's handbook
  15. £730 - £795 Undoubtedly our most striking C60 Trident 316L Limited Edition yet, this modern dive watch reveals a powerfully contrasting black and steel theme along with electric yellow detailing. Water resistant to 600m, just 316 have been made – a reference to the 316L steel alloy used in this Trident’s case and bezel. Description In a series known for its use of bold colours, this new C60 Trident 316L Limited Edition mostly turns its back on that trend - and still emerges as the most striking addition to the 316L family yet. A matte black dial serves as a sleek canvas upon which a mixture of colour and texture can be applied. The signature hour and minute hands synonymous with our Trident Collection, along with baton-shaped indexes, are all present; filled with green-emission SuperLumiNova SLN-T-C1, they'll provide excellent visibility in all lighting conditions. Yet it's the addition of the colour yellow - found in detailing such as the 316L's printed markers and on its seconds hand and trident-shaped counterbalance - that provide this Trident its spark. Factor in the brilliant contrast between the black of its dial and the 316L steel alloy used in its unidirectional bezel and case, and it quickly becomes evident that this 316-piece limited edition is the dark horse of our dive collection. Water-resistant to depths of 600m and powered by an ever-dependable Swiss-made automatic movement, the C60 Trident 316L Limited Edition's appearance is just as stunning as its performance in just about any environment you could expose it to. 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 C60 Trident 316L Limited Edition with supreme precision. Technical Diameter: 43mm Height: 13.3mm Weight: 102g Calibre: Sellita SW200-1 Case: 316L stainless steel Water resistance: 60 ATM (600 metres) Vibrations: 28,800 per hour (4Hz) Timing tolerance: +/- 20 seconds per day Dial colour: Black Lume: TC-1 SuperLumiNova Lug to lug: 51.5mm Strap width: 22mm Strap colour: Black/yellow Features Swiss made Limited edition of 316 pieces 26 jewel self-winding mechanical movement 38 hour power reserve Date calendar Central hacking seconds Anti-shock system Screw-in crown Unidirectional brushed steel (316L) bezel 3.4mm anti-reflective sapphire crystal Matte finish black dial SuperLumiNova- coated indexes and hands Signature Trident counter-balance on seconds hand Screw-down deep-stamped 3D backplate Unique, engraved serial number Soft-touch leather strap with engraved dress clasp and quick-release pins for easy changing Luxury presentation case and owner's handbook
