The Christopher Ward C63 GMT has a new green dial, green strap option added to the range and for us, it’s a winning combo.
The watch is powered by a Swiss Sellita SW330 movement, has plenty of lume, date window at 6pm and the famous GMT hand of course. Case diameter is 39mm, which makes this a nice size for everyday wear.
The price is £795, which for a watch that can offer see-thru sapphire crystal, 56 hours of power reserve and a stunning green `ombre’ style dial, is pretty fair. It’s assembled in the UK don’t forget, where wages are very high, so you pay extra to support jobs here, rather than in say China or Singapore. Your choice.
150m of water resistance isn’t impressive for some, but certainly enough for holiday snorkelling or swimming. There is a steel bracelet option, plus you can change to a silicone strap quite easily, using the quick-change mechanism.
The winning feature for us is that hand-distressed dial finish, which makes a refreshing change from so many white dial GMT watches.
