Christopher Ward appear to be really embracing the trend of making limited edition of watches by including some “historical material”. We have seen pieces of Spitfire, pieces of Aston Martin and now pieces of an historical Jaguar.
- Embedded with a piece of piston from one of 18 factory models, sourced by TMB Art Metal.
- The metal has been laser-cut into the shape of the alloy on the D-Type’s wheel and wheel-spinner, and can be viewed through the exhibition back.
The watch is powered by ETA’s Valgranges A07.161 self-winding movement that’s been specifically built for larger watch cases.
The watch is available for pre-order for mid-October at a cost of £2995
As is also the norm Christopher Ward have put together another cool video
