This collaboration is reflective of the historic link between the automotive and watch industries. The form and performance of beautiful classic cars has long been an influence on the wider watch industry. Christopher Ward itself is no stranger to this influence and history, having already released several successful limited edition watches inspired by classic cars.

Parallels already exist between the brands, who both cite their pride in their British heritage and design as an essential facet of their identity and success. The penchant for elegant, classic designs, innovation, and cutting-edge engineering that Ball Watches In Sydney Replica and Morgan Motors share is central to the philosophy that unites the two brands.

It is with these distinctive values in mind that the first timepiece in the collaborative collection, the Ball Watch Tritium Replacement Replica Bespoke 3 Wheeler Chronometer, has been designed. The watch, which will be available from May 2016, will be exclusively available to current and former owners of a Morgan motorcar.

The Christopher Ward Bespoke 3 Wheeler Chronometer pays tribute to the legendary 3-wheeler Morgan motorcar by coupling the design DNA of the 3-wheeler with advanced horology. The profile of the chronometer is streamlined and classic. The watch is housed in Christopher Ward’s C1 case, and powered by their Swiss-made in-house movement, COSC-certified Calibre SH21.

In an added touch to make the timepiece yet more unique, Morgan owners will also be able to have the chassis number of their automobile engraved into their watch. The Ball Watches Hong Kong Replica Bespoke 3-Wheeler Chronometer will be priced from £2,500.

Further collaborative timepieces will be announced in 2017, while the wider partnership will extend into further ventures, also set for announcement next year.

Mike France, Ball Watches Fireman Storm Chaser Pro Replica co-founder, says:

“The form and performance of beautiful classic cars has always influenced the wider watch industry, but especially so for Christopher Ward.

“Morgan Motors is an exceptional and characteristically British brand. Our shared brand values, of craftsmanship and engineering, mean that we are perfectly matched as partners. The first watch we have revealed in the partnership will be available exclusively to the 50,000-plus Morgan car owners, allowing them to become a member of a very special club between the two brands. We will also look to create watches for the wider fan base of Morgan in the future and we look forward to revealing further details of this exciting partnership in the coming months.”

Steve Morris, Morgan Motor Company Managing Director, says:

Here we go… All things considered, I actually found that the dial of the Ball Watch 45mm Replica C60 Trident Day Date COSC to be more legible than I originally anticipated. But, I did not find myself having too much trouble quickly reading the time. My favourite part of the dial must be the guilloche wave pattern. This type of flowery, flashy finishing isn’t usually something I care for in watches residing under “tool” umbrella however I discovered the execution subtle enough that it was pleasing each time it was able to catch my attention. It also took me some time to warm up to the Christopher Ward handset overall — a turning trident in my opinion can feel a bit gimmicky. But something about the red variant of the seconds hand sensed, rather cool, and pops with the help of this white dial.Both the hour and minute hand attribute Super-LumiNova SLN-T-C1 and delivered a satisfying glow in the dark. They also extend well into their own corresponding monitors, so you never actually must take a guess at what you are taking a look at. The more critical I am of this, the more I recognize that a whole lot of watch manufacturers are only making their hands far too short. Over at 3 o’clock, we’ve got a well incorporated day/date window with a polished aperture. No complaints here (I am not actually a date hater) and it was always enjoyable to witness the date and day mechanics snap into position right at midnight. It’s really pretty loudly, but satisfying.

“With a shared passion for motorsport at the heart of both brands, our collaboration with Christopher Ward is the perfect fit for Morgan. The synergies between our companies are evident, and I look forward to introducing a range of Morgan and Christopher Ward watches to our customers.” christopherward.co.uk

Christopher Ward C60 Trident 316L Limited Edition Watch mens watch under 500


Christopher Ward C60 Trident 316L Limited Edition Watch Watch Releases

There was a period in the mid-2000s when it seemed like any sport watch worth its salt was predictably clad in bright shades of yellow and orange. And while that vibrant couleur du jour back then seems to have largely been more recently replaced by various shades of blue, it’s nice to see Ball Watches Ladies Replica making orange the new black again with the C60 Trident 316 – the latter reference number being a nod to its marine-grade 316L stainless steel construction. This cheerful, limited-edition diver adds a dash of Vitamin C to the British brand’s growing Trident collection, just in time for summer.

The advent of the orange-dialed diver dates back to the late sixties when Swiss watchmaker DOXA was the first to deploy the hue in its Sub 300, purportedly claiming it to have tested as the most legible at depths. Later research would prove otherwise, but the reputation stuck – orange remained equated to capability and aquatic adventure, and is thus still a fun and fitting color addition to the Trident collection. And while perhaps lacking in legacy or cachet of a Seamaster, Submariner, or (perhaps more recently) Aquis, the Christopher Ward Trident divers are still very much on their way – similarly characterized by a series of modestly proportioned, and classically inspired sports watches intended for adventurous and everyday wear alike. Now, despite its most recent, minimalist-inspired revision which moved the brand’s wordmark to 9:00, if Christopher Ward can stick with a singular logo and brand aesthetic, the Trident should prove to be a great entry-level sport watch for many years to come.

While most of the name is really self-explanatory, a number of you might be overrun by the “Me 109.” This pertains to the Messerschmitt Bf 109 — a WW2-era Luftwaffe fighter plane that the watch is said to be inspired by. More specifically, it refers to a Junghans clock taken in the cockpit of one airplane. Two tangential points I want to make here: yet, it’s rare that a brand openly admits and credits another because its muse; and 2, is it only me or do British watchmaking manufacturers have an obsession with aviation-themed limited edition timepieces?Anyway back to the topic at hand. The Ball Watch Trainmaster 60 Seconds Ii Replica C9 Me 109 Monopusher Chronograph is powered with the calibre JJ02. Based on a Unitas 6497, which can be then heavily (and I mean very heavily) modified to incorporate all the monopusher chronograph bits. The former was instrumental in creating the in-house calibre SH21 and the modules on various Christopher Ward watches and is now portion of Sellita, furthering its motion development efforts.The calibre JJ02 was first utilized at the Christopher Ward C9 Single Pusher Chronograph, a dressier version than what we see here today. In my view, the Me 109 iteration looks much cooler and is much better suited to the large proportions of this watch. The JJ02 gives a 40h power reserve and defeats at 18,800bph. Unlike the dressier sibling, with a somewhat boring movement end, the bridges on the C9 Me 109 motion are ended with a black PVD coating and also have chamfering — giving it a very nice, edgy monochromatic look that I love.

Sharing much of its feature set with the Trident Pro 600, the Christopher Ward C60 Trident 316L is water resistant to 600 meters and exhibits the usual hallmarks of a modern dive watch, like a sapphire crystal, screw-down crown, and 316L stainless steel case that looks great on a variety of available straps and bracelets. Inside the new Christopher Ward C60 Trident 316L beats a Sellita 200-1 – a commonly used ETA 2824 clone that demonstrates excellent reliability in a wide variety of contexts.

Unlike what we’ve seen come standard on other options in the Trident collection, though, is how the Christopher Ward C60 Trident 316L is fitted with a unidirectional rotating steel bezel that’s fully brushed, as opposed to being fitted with a ceramic insert. That steel bezel is what the 316L in the name is likely referring to, as there would not be much other reason to emphasize the most common grade of steel used in wristwatches. It lends the watch a nicely consistent two-tone aesthetic contrasting the steel case and bezel, and the dial’s applied luminous indices.

The new Christopher Ward C60 Trident 316L Limited Edition will be produced in a limited run of only 316 (see what they did there?) pieces, with a starting price of £730 (around $835 USD) for NATO and rubber strap options. This price moves up to £750 (around $850 USD) for the rubber touch leather strap,  and £795 (roughly $910 USD) for the stainless steel bracelet, each of which will be available to purchase exclusively online. christopherward.co.uk

Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve Watch online safe


Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve Watch Watch Releases

The Ball Watches 125 Anniversary Replica C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve is the new flagship dress watch for the British company, and it features the new automatic power reserve version of its in-house movement, the Calibre SH21. The movement allows for five days worth of energy to be stored, and with an overall design modeled after the best of British construction (the Aston Martin DB9, the lines of a Heatherwick bridge, and the Malvern Hills were are all cited as inspirations by Adrian Buchmann, Senior Designer), Christopher Ward has created a watch that will pique the interest of those looking for a low-hassle dress watch with a fresh design.

At 43mm by 15.7mm, this isn’t a little watch — but in regards to chronographs, there is a tradeoff between affordability and movement sizes. It would be cost prohibitive to develop a brand new one from scratch and existing options (7750, ETA 2894-2, or the Eterna 39A with module) are of comparable depth. See why I enjoy this watch much better as a pilot watch than a dress watch now?The case is DLC steel having a sandblasted finish and contains a large, ergonomic fluted crown. Naturally, there’s sapphire crystal on both sides, with AR coating. The lack of a bezel leads me to think this watch will wear bigger than its 43mm size. Props to Christopher Ward for not including a date display on the watch.The brand says that the layout of the hands has been founded on the Junghans clock said before, and although it isn’t the most elegant, it affords plenty of legibility and fits in with the instrument watch motif. The minute ring, hour markers, and palms have Super-LumiNova that’s colored to look like patinated lume in daylight — it suits the watch well, but you are not likely to confuse this for a vintage timepiece from afar to get sure.he Christopher Ward C9 Me 109 Single Pusher Chronograph is a fascinating option in a market flooded with 7750 and ETA 2894-2 powered watches. There is no knock against both of these movements, but quite honestly, they do not supply the same caseback view that this does. The thickness of this watch can deter some people, but for those who can pull it off, in a cost of $3,370, and a limited run of 100 watches just, it seems to be a very good value proposition.

The case of the Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve is 40.5mm wide, 12.5mm thick, and 48.55mm lug to lug, weighing 62g in 316L stainless steel. With a mixture of brushed and polished surfaces, the Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve watch should appear slimmer than it measures when on the wrist. The non-screw-down crown with the twin flag motif results in a water resistance rating of 30m, so it’s generally safe for hand washing and light splashes, but it will be a watch to take off before stepping into the shower after a long day at the office.

The aforementioned movement is a COSC-certified chronometer and has 35 jewels. It operates at 28,800 beats per hour (4Hz) and has a timing tolerance of +6/-4 seconds per day. To add the automatic power reserve complication to the Calibre SH21, 28 pieces were added to the base movement. The bridge and rotor were also modified, allowing for a better view of the twin barrels. Engraved on the movement is the same twin flag motif seen on the crown and this can be viewed through the screw-in exhibition case back. On the case back you can also find the engraved serial number for the watch.

The Ball Watches Review Watch Snob Replica C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve dial features a power reserve indicator at the nine o’clock position, with the text “5 Days” centered within the horseshoe indicator. The hour indexes are polished nickel, and elongated Arabic numerals at 12 o’clock and six o’clock are the only numeric hour markers on the clean dial. The company name is in a modern font reminiscent of Helvetica at the three o’clock position.

Depending on the color of the dial (opalin white, sunray-blue, or sunray-black) the color of the minute and hour hands will change. The white dial models have blue minute and hour hands and the blue and black dials have silver hands.

As regular readers of aBlogToWatch will know, 2016 has been an eventful one for Christopher Ward. The company launched a new brand logo, created a new website, and has been designing watches with an emphasis on British-inspired design. In May, Ariel wrote about the re-branding of the company and as of the time of writing, aBlogToWatch has covered the release of eight new watches from the brand (including this one) this calendar year. Most of those releases have been focused on the company’s dive, sport, and aviation watches, so this release may indicate that additional releases of new dress watches from the brand are soon to come as well.

Even if that isn’t the case, the Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve is another exciting addition to the collection of watches on offer by the British company and continues the good work begun at the start of this year to update the brand. It is available for preorder with shipments going out in November and is prices at $2,060 on a strap and $2,100 on a mesh bracelet. christopherward.com
