The Return of The 36mm Case? Christopher Ward Says Yes

For decades most gents watches were a tiny 33mm across. That was back when men worked with heavy machinery so it was good to have a slim little watch that could be tucked under a protective glove, or a cuff if you were an office wallah. Then in the 60s it kinda went larger to…

Is This The Smoothest Christopher Ward Yet?

Say hello to the new Christopher Ward Aquitaine. We reckon this is one of the smoothest looking watches the UK brand has produced. Very sleek, balanced lines, a beautiful finish on the bezel, plus a bronze case variant too. And all for that traditional value price. You can’t argue with a bronze dive watch with…

If you love skeleton dials then the latest variation on the C63 Sealander theme from Christopher Ward is worth checking out.

C63 Sealander Goes Green

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…

Christopher Ward C60 Gets a Glass of Orange

UK watch brand Christopher Ward has released an orange dial variant to its C60 range. The dial is also uber-thin sapphire crystal and translucent, so you can catch a glimpse of the Sellita SW200 movement inside. That is a clever detail and we love the C Ward trident second hand, plus the decorated rotor on…

Christopher Ward C63 Sealander

Christopher Ward have produced some very sharp designs over the last few years. Although critics moan about Swiss movements being used, rather than UK built movements, you have to admire the combo of UK design with Swiss level build touches. These are not unreasonably priced watches, considering they’re assembled in Britain where labour costs are…

New Christopher Ward C60 Sapphire Black Edition

Christopher Ward has launched the C60 Sapphire Black. Like the original C60 Sapphire, the dial is made from ultra-thin, scratch-resistant sapphire. However, here, the sapphire has been ‘smoked’ – something that’s achieved through a complex process called physical vapour deposition (PVD). This involves placing the sapphire in a vacuum chamber filled with a vapour of…

Christopher Ward C60 Sapphire: Deep Blue Magic

There are some who love UK brand Christopher Ward and others who regard their Sellita powered watches as essentially entry level and therefore not quite prestige.  Maybe a Tissot has more heritage, and even a Hamilton Ventura has cool vibes? Well, you can argue those points down the pub – actually you probably can’t as…

Christopher Ward’s C65 Super Compressor is Super Value

Christopher Ward has just launched a Super Compressor C65 model, which has bold colours and more than respectable dive rating as part of the package. The RRP of £895 makes this SW200 powered watch a bargain we reckon. The clever thing about a super compressor is that it uses the pressure of water to squish…
