I thought Christopher Ward merit an honorable mention this week, they have recently announced some really nice looking watches which move them significantly away from the generic styles. The latest one to really catch my eye is this the C65 Trident Diver.
As you can see the look is vintage but I am not able to identify any particular watch as the inspiration, though I am sure there is someone out there that can.
This watch has a useful casual but smart look, a diver that is not so “in your face” as the usual desk divers whilst retaining all the practicality. A cool trick.
The specifications are:
- Diameter: 41mm
- Height: 11.55mm
- Weight: 65g
- Calibre: Sellita SW210 (hand wound)
- Case: 316L Stainless Steel
- Water resistance: 15 ATM (150 metres)
- Vibrations: 28,800 per hour (4 Hz)
- Timing tolerance: +15/-15 seconds per day
- Dial colour: Blue or Black
- Lug to lug: 47.1mm
- Strap width: 22mm
- Leather or Rubber strap
- Price €870
I would really like to see one for real. The only potential negative for me might be the 41mm case size, I am curious to see how it wears.
