The Watch

Founded in 2005 by Mike France, Peter Ellis and Christopher Ward they started the world's first online-only watch brand. Launched from a converted chicken shed on a farm in Berkshire. Soon after the launch of the brand Dave Malone was a Tasmanian lecturer and watches expert. When he saw the press ad for a watch powered by an ETA 2824–2 automatic movement, he decided to buy one. He planned to write a critical review on the world’s largest watch forum, Timezone.com. Fortunately for Christopher Ward, his review was most complimentary. Stating the watch was the “best value mechanical watch in the world”. Sales immediately spiked and Christopher Ward became firmly established. After receiving such high praise in the industry and from collectors in 2008 they began work with assistance from a Swiss watchmaking company: Synergies Horlogères. Based in Biel, Switzerland. SH was owned and led by Jörg Bader who had the same vision Christopher Ward had on designing a new movement. After many years of design and development, July 2nd, 2014 saw the announcement to an astounding watch industry of their in-house movement, Calibre SH21, the first commercially viable mechanical movement from a British watch brand in over 50 years.

This 2021 Christopher Ward C65 Trident 316L Limited Edition of 316 pieces. The 41mm 316L stainless steel case gently curves towards tapered lugs. A lug to lug length of 47mm and a case thickness of 11.5mm give the watch an impressive wrist presence. On the right side is a signed screw-down crown. The thin stainless steel bezel has a 60-minute scale engraved into it and the numerals are painted black. A domed sapphire crystal sits above a striking yellow textured dial. An outer minute track has applied 12, 6, and baton indexes marking the hours coated in SuperLuminova. Baton hands coated in SuperLuminova complemented by a trident balanced sweeping second hand. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with an embossed trident in the center. Inside a  Manually Wound Sellita SW210, 19 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour. The watch comes fitted on an original Christopher Ward 22mm black rubber strap with a signed clasp and comes with its Christopher Ward presentation box and papers.

Points of Mention


This watch is sold with its original Christopher Ward Box & Paperwork. The watch comes paired with an original 22mm black rubber with a signed clasp. The watch is from January 2021 and is sold in worn condition, but overall very fair condition as you can see. The watch comes with its original Manufacturer Warranty.

Personal Note


When this watch landed on my desk it was the first time I had seen this limited edition, and what a fantastic look it is! The dial is a pastel pop of yellow, but rather a bit more subdued and casual which is perfect in my opinion. If you are wanting a classic Christopher Ward but with a twist, this is the one!
