If you haven’t heard of them already Christopher Ward, founded by Christopher Ward, Mike France and Peter Ellis in 2004, is British watch company. Their story is a unique one, inspired by the staggering mark up prices of other companies, Christopher Ward saw an opportunity to create a different type of premium watch business. A company that would provide “the cheapest most expensive watches in the world.” and became the world’s first online-only watch brand, selling timepieces directly to the consumer.
The Telegraph said “It’s quite a triumph for the brand to produce a sapphire-dialled watch for less than £900…The star of Christopher Ward’s recent TV advertising campaign sold out of its first run in days despite a global pandemic and lockdown”
The C60 Sapphire expertly combines an eye-catching aesthetic with true horological detail. A transparent, super thin dial of pure sapphire backed with a layer of blue polycarbonate that gives the dial its translucent blue glow. If you like a watch that makes a statement – as much for its performance as its appearance – the NEW C60 Sapphire is the perfect companion! It is both a thing of beauty and a professional-grade diving watch, whether you’re suited and booted for the city or a deep sea dive. From £795.
If you aren’t a fan of the Sapphire, not to worry. The C60 Elite 1000 joins the world’s best dive watches as the latest model in the Trident range. After the C60 Trident Elite 1000 limited edition sold out in record breaking time, Christopher Ward decided to make another, more permanent addition to the collection. Water resistant to 1,000m, with an upgraded Sellita movement and lightweight, quick release titanium bracelet or hybrid rubber strap option it once again raises the bar for what a professional dive watch can offer at this level. From £1,250,
Christoper Ward also released the The Military Collection which includes three models – named to honour each Service within the UK Armed Forces, these are the C65 Dartmouth, C65 Sandhurst and C65 Cranwell. Each model represents the military academies of the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force respectively and carries their official insignia. From £795.
My personal favourite has to be the C1 Moonglow, this innovative timepiece features two eye-catching 3D moons on the dial. Both of these are coated with Super-LumiNova® that emits an otherworldly ‘moonglow’, bringing the dial’s canopy of stars design to life in the dark. From £1,695,
