  7. From the November issue of Loupe: Two glorious new iterations of the smash hit C65 Collection are coming our way early next year… The first C65 Trident Divers were all hand-wound watches, and now here’s an automatic take on the theme. But wait! There’s more to this new version than that, for along with the new movement comes a new dial design too… Due early spring. The classic so-called ‘Pepsi’ colour combination for dive watches, with a bezel rendered half in red and half in blue, gets a fresh outing with this new variation on the C65 design. Made popular by one of the great watch icons, Rolex’s celebrated GMT-Master, it features carefully selected muted red and blue bezel colours and the C65 GMT design, making this watch far more than a simple homage. The first red-and-blue GMT-Master was launched in 1954, but the new version seen at Baselworld 2018 was one of the hits of the show; may we suggest that the C65 ‘Pepsi’ might just be one of the hits of 2019 too? Due early spring.
  8. 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. Every Calibre SH21 has been passed by Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, who test each in a variety of temperatures and positions. Only 6% of Swiss-made movements receive this certification, ensuring the C65 Trident Bronze SH21 Limited Edition sits in an exclusive arena occupied by few other small second watches. Technical Diameter: 41mm Height: 12.5mm Weight: 73g Calibre: Calibre SH21 hand-wound chronometer (COSC) with small second and date Vibrations: 28,800 per hour (4 Hz) Timing tolerance: -4/+6 seconds per day Case: Bronze C5191 (CuSn6) Backplate: 316L Stainless steel Water resistance: 15 ATM (150 metres) Dial colour: Blue Lume: Old Radium SuperLumiNova® Strap width: 22mm Strap colour: Blue Lug to Lug: 47.1mm Features Limited edition of 150 pieces Swiss made 27 jewel hand-wound movement 120 hour power reserve Hour, minute, small second, date Anti-shock system Bronze C5191 (CuSn6) case with stainless steel high definition "Trident" motif screw-down backplate Push-in crown stamped with twin flag motif Unidirectional bronze bezel with aluminium insert "Glass box" sapphire crystal Matte finish dial Azzure subdial finish Twin flags debossed at 12 o'clock Old Radium SuperLumiNova® indexes and hands Unique engraved serial number Premium quality canvas webbing strap with Christopher Ward buckle Luxury presentation case and owner's handbook

    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. Technical Diameter: 41mm Height: 11.55mm Weight: 65g Calibre: Sellita SW210 Case: 316L Stainless Steel Water resistance: 15 ATM (150 metres) Vibrations: 28,800 per hour (4 Hz) Timing tolerance: +15/-15 seconds per day Dial colour: Black Lug to lug: 47.1mm Strap width: 22mm Features Swiss made 19 jewel hand-wound movement 42 hour power reserve Christopher Ward 'Colimaçoné' finish on movement Brushed and polished marine-grade stainless steel case High Definition "Trident" motif screw-down backplate Push-in crown stamped with twin flag motif Unidirectional aluminium bezel "Glass box" sapphire crystal Matte finish dial Twin flags debossed at 12 o'clock Old Radium SuperLumiNova® indexes and hands Signature Trident counter-balance on seconds hand Unique engraved serial number Vintage oak leather strap with Christopher Ward-engraved dress clasp Luxurious presentation case and owner's handbook
