The Christopher Ward Bel Canto was one of the best watches of 2022; interesting to look at, beautifully finished and modestly priced for an hourly chime watch. Now you can pre-order a purple sun-ray dial variant, which retails for a reasonable £2995 on a leather strap.
You can switch the chime off if you like, simply by pressing the chamfered button at the 4 o’clock position on the titanium case. It’s a brilliant bit of intrricate engineering and the purple rain colours will make this a collectors item for the future.
Ther is a steel bracelet version too, which is an extra £300.
