Christopher Ward mixes the modern day with a hark back to tradition as it continues to expand its Trident Diver family of watches.
The new C65 Trident Diver from Christopher Ward demonstrates capabilities and technologies allowed by modern day horology while infusing design cues from the 1960s.
The new timepiece slots in-between Christopher Ward’s Dive and Dress collections, providing a versatile watch with vintage appeal.
“Christopher Ward didn’t exist in 1965, but this is the watch we would have built back then if we did,” said Mike France, CEO and co-founder of Christopher Ward.
“60’s diver’s watches, as a type, are amongst the most usable and attractive designs ever made – bold, stylish, masculine but not overly aggressive. Inspired by this, we wanted to create the C65 Trident Diver, a watch that would have the same appeal as those you might have seen on the wrist of Sean Connery’s James Bond, but with all the best modern accuracy, technology and construction standards.”
The new C65 Trident Diver features a 41mm case, breaking away from the conventional 38mm and 43mm case sizes within the range.
The watch’s marine-grade stainless steel case construction utilises a variety of polished and brushed surfaces, which are designed to appear slim on the wrist.
The C65 Trident Diver will be available on a quality vintage oak leather strap in either camel or black and rubber strap in blue or black, priced at £695.
