New Instrument Watches from Christopher Ward

Well I guess it was bound to happen some day: adapting the paradigm of a cockpit clock to the wrist is no longer a novelty. Seiko made one of the earliest documented attempts, and watches like the ZULU-01 by Trintec, the Airspeed by Revue Thommen and the BR01 by Bell & Ross were all released later. Now, affordable British brand Christopher Ward can also be added to the list in merits of their upcoming C11 collection.

C11 Altus Automatic

Sized at 42 mm, the aviation-inspired square-shaped watche comes with a Ronda quartz chronograph or an automatic ETA 2824-2 calibre. The bezel is round, with a non-reflective sapphire crystal, and the choice of straps are: brown or black. As for their other products, Christopher Ward has kept an eye for detail by having the date disk with white text on black, in orded to make it blend better in the dial design.

C11 Altus Chronograph

Priced at GBP 399 for the automatic version and GBP 350 for the quartz chronograph, the watches will soon be available on the Christopher Ward e-store and by official Christopher Ward retailers.
