Chrisopher Ward has waved the green flag for two new editions to its collection inspired by motorsport.
The first of the latest motorsport launches from Christopher Ward is the C7 Hornet COSC Limited Edition.
Named after the venomous insect, this new addition to Christopher Ward’s Rapide collection has been inspired by the excitement of watching live motorsport.
The C7 case is constructed from four individually engineered parts, each of which have been designed using techniques that are similar to how racing teams work to streamline their cars for optimum performance.
The case has then received a sandblasted diamond-like carbon (DLC) finish with an anodized orange aluminium case band.
The C7 Hornet COSC Limited Edition’s matte black dial is complemented by alternating Arabic numerals which are raised and varnished in orange on their outside and filled with blue emission Super-LumiNova within.
Powered by a COSC version of the Sellita SW200, the C7 Hornet COSC Limited Edition, of which there will only be 150 pieces, has been tested in a range of positions and temperatures to gain the ‘chronometer’ certification.
The second motorsport launch from Christopher Ward this June, is the C7 Rosso Corsa COSC Limited Edition.
The new timepiece uses a shade of red that is evocative of the supercars produced throughout Italian motorsport history.
The C7 Rossa Corsa COSC Limited Edition’s double height numerals are polished around the outside and filled with Super-LumiNova for improved legibility.
It is powered by an ETA 2836-2 COSC calibre that has been certified by the independent Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres with only 200 pieces being made available.
