A Closer Look At The Christopher Ward Calibre SH21 Watch Releases

Back in 2014, Christopher Ward broke into the world of in-house movement manufacturing with the introduction of the Calibre SH21. As an unexpected move to witness from a young, independent brand, industry experts were curious, surprised, and in many ways, thrilled to see this kind of dedication from Christopher Ward. Since then, the British brand has released a handful of attractive watches that utilize the the SH21 – like the the Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve. Today, Ball Watches Rubber Strap Replica continues to push the limits of their very own in-house movement and now aim to find new ways to build upon the SH21 as a base movement to be used in newer and more feature-packed timepieces.

The story of the Calibre SH21 can be traced back to late 2009, when Christopher Ward’s master watchmaker, Johannes Jahnke, began the long process that would eventually end with the first in-house Christopher Ward movement. Another important step in the process was the merger with Synergies Horlogères, a partner crucial to the execution and development of the SH21. After four years of hard work, trials, failures, and successes, the Calibre SH21 was revealed to the watchmaking world in July of 2014.

The Ball Watches Glasgow Replica C1 Grand Malvern Jumping Hour shares exactly the exact same restrained 40.5mm stainless steel case by the flagship C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve, with a polished bezel and drag tops along with a brushed case band, giving it the appearance of a well-proportioned apparel watch. Like another Malvern watches, the Jumping Hour has a 30m water-resistance evaluation along with a twin-flag motif on the crown.Under the dial, the Christopher Ward C1 Jumping Hour stocks an identical beating heart to its predecessor, the C9 Harrison. The ETA 2824-2 foundation of the predecessor was replaced by a Sellita SW200-1, and it is a well-known substitute for the ETA and more popular given the fast declining supply of ETA moves to non-Swatch manufactures. On top of this robust, workhorse motion is the JJ01 module, developed in-house. The modular path makes sense over developing a new movement from the ground up given that among their brand’s goals is to keep prices affordable.The watch is given in three dial colours; blue, black, and white, with the latter having a domed opaline finish, using sunray finishes on the other two. There’s no seconds hand but the second hand is simple and clean and polished or blued (determined by dial shade). It’s identifiable as a Malvern using the dial the case and finishing the apparel watch aesthetic. The window for the jumping hour is at 12 o’clock and contains sloping edges that echo the design of their date windows on other Malvern lines. This is a neat bit and the attention to detail is appreciated.

The Christopher Ward Calibre SH21 was also a response to the waning supply of third party movements, particularly at the hands of the Swatch Group’s reduced distribution to competitors. Though this is due to have an effect all the way through 2020 (and beyond), Christopher Ward takes pride in seeing this as an issue early on and investing heavily in the research and development of a movement that would facilitate true independence. It was clearly a worth-while effort and now, Christopher Ward is now in a position to license its design out to other brands, and help create some new competition in the watch industry.

Industry shake-ups aside, the Christopher Ward Calibre SH21 is quite special for the brand. Consisting of 164 parts, it features an in-series twin barrel system that allows for 120 hours of power reserve, which is something that often comes at a huge premium from other brands. It operates at 4Hz (28,800bph) but the movement’s crowning feature is of course, its timekeeping. All Christopher Ward Calibre SH21 movements are COSC certified, making them the perfect base movement for new and compelling in-house releases and innovations.

Based on the Christopher Ward C8 Flyer, their new C8 UTC Worldtimer is a pilot-style twin-crown sport watch with a world time bezel and an aviation-inspired dial design. For both travelers and those who work on international projects, a world timer can be a very handy complication. With the ability to display the time in any standard UTC timezone, the Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer offers a casual and travel-ready Swiss-powered design at an accessible price point.

Measuring 44mm wide with a steel case in either a brushed finish or black DLC, the Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer has a sapphire crystal and measures 53.2mm lug to lug and 11.5mm thick. Weight, presumably without a strap, is 88g and water resistance is 50m. Like nearly all pilot’s watches, the Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer’s design is inspired by the aviation gauges in planes. In addition to its gauge-like display, the crowns and solid case back are inspired by turbines and wind tunnels, with the twin crowns looking especially cool to my eyes.

The Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer’s functionality will take some explaining, as not all world timers offer the same functionality. A true world timer, like the IWC Big Pilot Worldtimer, can show the time in all displayed time zones (usually 24, sometimes more) simultaneously. Generally, this is done by having the movement rotate a 24-hour scale which can be set to show your local time and thus synchronize with all of the other time zones on the watch. The Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer is more of a passive world timer, as it shows two time zones at once while offering a simple and fast method of selecting a different time zone.

Like the Bremont ALT1-WT, the Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer uses an ETA movement that offers an independently adjustable 24-hour hand – in this case, an ETA 2893-2. To use the world time functionality of the Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer, you set the UTC hand to show UTC 0 time (aka GMT time) and then use the second crown to rotate the city dial so that your desired timezone/city is at 12 o’clock. You can now read the indicated city’s time via the 24-hour scale and the UTC hand. So, in the below press image, the world time is set to London and the time there is 10:08. To see a new timezone, just rotate the city bezel and place the new city at 12.

As mentioned, Christopher Ward has opted to use the rather excellent ETA 2893-2 movement, which offers a date, an adjustable 24-hour hand, and a power reserve of 42 hours. There aren’t many off-the-shelf GMT movement options available today, but thankfully the 2893 is a reliable, hard-working, and user-friendly movement with a long history of use in many applications.

The dial, which is black/white for the brushed steel Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer and black/tan for the DLC version, is a luminous two layer design using stencil markers for all but the 3, 6, 9, and 12, which are applied and rendered with a gun metal finish. The dials are a matte textured black that looks excellent in the provided macro photos and the GMT hand sports a long red arrow head design that is mirrored in the 24-hour marking for the world time display.

While the 44mm sizing is a bit big for my tastes, I really like what Christopher Ward has done with the Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer to set it apart from your garden variety Big Pilot-esque watches. The mix of small details, from the sandwich dial, to the skeleton hands and the eye-catching crowns, make for a watch that stands out among a litany of pilot’s watches on the market today. Being a Christopher Ward, the price point is also rather enticing, with the steel version pre-ordering for US$1,350 and the DLC version claiming US$1,420, with your choice of a few different leather strap options. Availability is slated for mid-October, which gives you enough time to book some plane tickets and get an appropriate time zone-jumping adventure penciled in to your fall calendar. christopherward.com
