January 20th 2015 – Christopher Ward launches 4 new Trident models!
Their most popular model, launched in 2009, has been completely revamped and is now available in a 4-tier system. All feature a completely reworked case and caseback, and the 3 highest models have a ceramic bezel. Some will be pleased to see that all the autos have the date window in the more traditional position at 3. Only the quartz version keeps the 4 o’clock date window. The 3 highest versions also boast a much needed lume upgrade – the hour markers now contain SuperLuminova SLN T C1 lume. The watches are available in 8 different colour combinations, and can be fitted with 6 different strap lengths.
Christopher Ward C60 Trident 300
The lowest and most affordable model, is a new quartz model, and is available in 38mm and 42mm sizes. Powered by a Ronda 515, it keeps the 300m water resistance of the previous C60.
It costs £299. Click here to view them on the CW site and to buy one.

Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro 600
The next tier up is the standard auto version and is priced at £599. Yes it’s more than the standard C60 used to be, but you’re getting double the water resistance (600m rather than 300m), and a ceramic bezel. This is also available in 38mm and 42mm.

Christopher Ward C60 Trident GMT 600
We then come to level 3, which is the same as the Pro, but it’s a GMT. It’s an extra £200, meaning it’ll cost you £799. Housing the same ETA 2893-2 movement, it also has double the water resistance as its predecessor, and again rocks a ceramic bezel. This is also available in 38mm and 42mm variants.

Christopher Ward C60 Trident COSC
Finally, we have the highest tier. It houses the well known SH21 movement, found in the C9 5 day auto. It’s obviously COSC certified, and has the fantastic 120 hour power reserve that comes along with it. It’s priced the same as the C9 too, starting at £1500. If this takes your fancy (I think it’ll prove to be pretty popular), you’ll have to move quick – as there’s only going to be a limited run of 250 for the time being. Due to the size of the movement, this is only available in 42mm.
