Here we have a 2022 Christopher Ward C63 Sealander GMT White on Strap that has a 39mm 316L marine-grade stainless steel Light-catcher case that gently curves over your wrist with tapered lugs, and a lug-to-lug length of 45.5mm and a case thickness of 12mm ensures a comfortable fit. Brushed and polished surfaces transition with crisp edges that play with the light as you rotate your wrist hence the name. On the right side is a screw-down signed crown with an embossed Christopher Ward motif. A fixed 24-hour brushed bezel has black lacquer-filled numerals and holds an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The white polished lacquered dial has an outer minute chapter ring with printed Arabic numerals and an orange pip, applied bevel-edged gun-metal diamond polished baton indexes with a strip of Super-LumiNova Grade X1 BL C1 down their centres to mark the hours, the polished edges catch the light in a magical way. At 6 o’clock a date window. Brushed and polished gun-metal hands are filled with the same luminance complemented by an orange-tipped GMT arrow hand and an orange-tipped sweeping second hand complete with the characteristic Trident counterweight. Text is precisely applied with a splash of orange at 6 o’clock indicating its water resistance. This go-anywhere, do-everything watch is perfectly balanced. On the reverse a screw-down exhibition case back, inside an automatic Sellita SW330-2, 25 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour, with a bespoke “Colimaçoné” finishing (a type of twisting sunray graining). The rotor has a double Twin-flag engraving across it. The watch comes fitted on a Christopher Ward 20mm Leather strap with a signed pin buckle and the watch also comes with its Christopher Ward presentation box and papers.
If you are after a well-built Swiss-made GMT that won't break the bank, offers a wonderful design and can be had for under £1,000 your options are very limited! But this Christopher Ward C63 Sealander GMT offers all that and more, for well under £1,000! I wouldn't hesitate on this one if you are interested, this is a watch that will stick around for a long time in a collection as a go-to piece.
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 own in-house movement, Calibre SH21, the first commercially viable mechanical movement from a British watch brand in over 50 years.
