Summer is in full swing and Christopher Ward has just unveiled the two latest versions of their flagship dive watch, the C60 Trident Diver. The Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro and C60 Trident Day Date are two COSC-certified dive watches that have also been released as limited editions. And, while the overall look and design might seem familiar, both models have been visually updated with subtle touches of color throughout the dial and bezel. Christopher Ward is also announcing the launch of their #TridentSummer campaign, which offers a chance to save 15% when purchasing any watch from the Trident collection.
The Ball Watches Any Good Replica C60 Trident Pro and C60 Trident Day Date -like other watches in the collection – aim to offer watch enthusiasts great value in the way of design, execution, and features. In many ways, these newest models mark an evolution within the Trident line-up and bring COSC-certified timekeeping at an affordable price. This is all thanks to the COSC-grade Sellita SW200 in the C60 Trident Pro and ETA 2836 in the C60 Trident Day Date. Both of these movements offer time-tested reliability, serviceability, and top-notch performance for the wearer. Pair it all with the classic Trident aesthetic with a monochromatic theme and you have some of the most versatile models ever released by Christopher Ward.
The commemorative element is really a 0.8mm thick aluminum plate that has been made from the remnants of the piston of the Hurricane fighter plane C9 P2725 that went down while saving the country. It is attached to the rear of each view, but you can’t actually touch it – it is covered by a sapphire crystal, the type used by museums to protect valuable exhibits. The C9 P2725 was flown by RAF pilot Flight Lieutenant Ray Holmes who was a part of a squadron that intercepted a massed raid on central London by German Dornier bombers during the Battle of Britain, on September 15, 1940. Holmes’ Hurricane was wrecked from the procedure, and afterwards he gradually bailed out, the airplane nosed down, burying itself deep into the floor beneath Buckingham Palace Road.Ward says he had been approached by TMB Art Metal, a company that excavates historic crash websites (it’s possible to acquire cuff links made out of this rudder of the Concorde), to provide him some of the aluminum out of the wreckage of the Hurricane, which they salvaged. “I knew immediately we would find the right moment to incorporate the historical metal into a wristwatch. The RAF’s centenary in 2018 is that moment, and we are very happy and privileged to indicate this momentous year in this unique way.” The steel on the case back was salvaged in the piston of the Hurricane’s Rolls Royce Merlin engine. Ward completed the alloy for use in the watches. It had been treated, hand-brushed and laser-engraved using a map of central London, with a red dot identifying the crash site, and inscribed with the date and location of the Battle of Britain. The dial of the watch is inspired by the Hurricane’s dashboard instrument panel, using a matte black background contrasted by alternating white and old radium (a shade of Super-LumiNova) numerals at a classic inspired sans-serif font. The hands and logo will also be in older radium, giving the watch a true vintage look.
Both of the watches feature brushed, marine-grade 316L stainless steel cases that measure in at a comfortable 43mm in diameter. Water resistance is 600m and though the cases are more contemporary in size, the 51.5mm lug-to-lug distance makes these watches appropriate for a range of wrist sizes. There are also a few unique red color touches that compliment the the dial’s white guilloche wave pattern. The first can be found at the 12 o’clock position on the durable unidirectional zirconia (ZrO2) ceramic bezel. The second can be seen on the seconds hand, which is completely finished in red along with its signature Ball Watch 1604b Replica Trident counter-balance.
These new aesthetic choices set the models apart from the rest and offer customers a chance to own a unique piece of Trident history. Looking at the dial, we find a high-contrast and complimentary design focus that matches perfectly with the brushed case and glossy bezel. There is also the inclusion of the classic Trident handset, which features Super-LumiNova that has also been applied generously on the indexes. To maintain its clean look, dial text has been kept to a minimum, with the standard Christopher Ward logo text at 9 o’clock and the chronometer designation and depth rating just above 6 o’clock. The Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro and C60 Trident Day Date divers also come with the choice of either a stainless steel bracelet, leather strap, NATO strap, or a high quality rubber strap.
