The Christopher Ward C65 Trident Diver has the design elements of both a functional diver and a sports watch, reflecting the jet setters of the 1960s with the minimalist dial and GMT functionality.

A lug to lug length of 47mm and a thickness of 11.5mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side, a signed crown. A 24-hour unidirectional Pepsi bezel has deep knurling providing grip when turning. The glass box sapphire crystal sits above a matte black dial. Baton indexes are coated in Super-LumiNova. At 3 o’clock a date window. Baton’s hands with bevelled edges are coated in Super-LumiNova. The centre seconds hand has the characteristic Trident counterweight. The GMT hand has a vibrant red arrow tip, making it easy to read. At 12 o’clock a debossed twin flags logo. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with the high relief trident in the centre. Inside an Automatic Sellita SW330, 25 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour.
