Christopher Ward creates skeletonized concept watch

0

Christopher Ward has launched a 21st watch using its in-house-designed and assembled SH21 caliber.

The Christopher Ward C60 Concept is the latest in the SH21-based line that includes four automatics and six hand wound watches in a range of styles ranging from central or small seconds, with or without power reserve indicators, and with or without date.

All are COSC-certified chronometers.

The C60 Concept is a 42mm titanium skeletonized piece with small seconds.

The detail of each movement, seen from the front and back of the watch, took six hours and was overseen by Armin Strom to the level seen by artisan independents such as Czapek and MB&F, Christopher Ward says.

It still performs as a diving watch, with 300 meter water resistance thanks to a screw-in crown and screw-down exhibition caseback.

It has a 120-step unidirectional zirconia ceramic bezel, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, brushed and polished steel hands, sandblasted, brushed and polished blue ring with Super-LumiNova White filling and an orange Globelight Triangle.

The 210-piece limited edition, priced at $4,370, comes with a Cordura and rubber hybrid waterproof strap.
