Founded in 2005 by Mike France, Peter Ellis, and Christopher Ward they started the world's first online-only watch brand. July 2nd, 2014 saw the announcement to the genuinely astonished watch industry, their own in-house movement, Calibre SH21, the first commercially viable mechanical movement from a British watch brand in over 50 years.
The Christopher Ward C65 Trident Diver has the design elements of both a functional diver and a dress watch. Its vintage vibe can be fully appreciated once you have it on your wrist. A lug to lug length of 47mm and a thickness of 12mm ensures a comfortable fit, ready for any occasion. The 41mm round stainless steel case has tapering lugs. Expertly polished and brushed surfaces transition with crisp edges. On the right side, a large push-in signed crown. The unidirectional aluminium bezel has a 60-minute insert. A domed sapphire crystal sits above the matte-finished dial. The 12, 6 and batons are coated in Old Radium SuperLumiNova for that vintage feel. Long baton hands coated in the same Old Radium SuperLumiNova, with a seconds hand complete with the signature Trident counterbalance. On the reverse, a screw-down case back, the Trident motif sits proudly in the centre. Inside a Manually Wound Sellita SW-210-1, 19 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour. The watch comes fitted on its Christopher Ward 22mm leather strap with a signed buckle and push-button deployment.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original Christopher Ward box and the "Thank You" letter but no original paperwork. The watch comes paired on an original CW leather strap with a signed buckle, 2 other CW straps are also provided with the watch. The watch is from Circa. 2018 and is sold in worn condition, but overall this is in fantastic condition as you can see. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
Another example of how some incredible watches can be had for not a lot of money at all, especially when you consider the fact this is an incredibly well-executed design, manually wound and in a super wearable case. Christopher Ward and doing amazing things and are showing no sign of slowing down.
