A UK manufacturer, Christopher Ward, takes its Trident collection to a completely new level by launching the very first chronograph model of its famous Trident Diver timepiece. This newcomer features the recognizable Trident DNA, but the first thing that catches attention is a striking combination of deep navy blue and metallic yellow and especially highly engaging design element is the seconds counter located at the 9 o’clock position which has been inspired by a scuba diver regulator.
Christopher Ward C60 Trident Chronograph is housed in a round, stainless steel case which measures 43mm in diameter and 17mm in thickness. The sporty case incorporates a blue ceramic bezel insert and an integrated helium escape valve which is placed at the 9 o’clock position. The unidirectional bezel has been enhanced by the addition of a full minute-track and the robust font for the numerals, which are filled with high-grade Superluminova for the best visibility in murky water.
The newest member of the Christopher Ward’s Trident collection can withstand the water pressure at the depths of amazing 600 meters (approximately 2000 feet).
The beating heart of this stunning diver is one of the most reliable and robust chronograph movements in the world, the automatic ETA Valjoux 7750. The impeccable self-winding mechanism is a very popular movement used in the majority of mechanical chronograph timepieces on the market today.
Underneath the front sapphire glass lies probably the brand’s most detailed dial so far. The hour and minute hands, as well as the indices are also filled with Superluminova to provide perfect legibility of the time regardless of lighting conditions.
The reverse side of the watch reveals a new ergonomically designed case back, with the edges of its flowing contours now chamfered and softened.
Christopher Ward offers two variants of its new C60 Trident Chronograph watch. The first one comes with a stainless steel bracelet, while for those who prefer more comfortable wristlets, there is a model attached to a deep blue rubber strap with embossed wave pattern. The retail price starts at $1,920 and the new watch is available on Pre-order for delivery in early March, exclusively from their website.
This watch has been created by a young Swiss watch designer named Adrian Buchmann (28) who has joined the British brand last year.
