Press Release - Christopher Ward C60 Trident Red and Green
« on: February 25, 2014, 05:06:14 PM »
Christopher Ward’s C60 Trident is, for many watch aficionados, the ultimate expression of the brand’s unique blend of quality, design and value.  Now the C60 is offered in two striking new tones – Trident Green and Trident Red.

Inspired by the iconic Rolex 1954 GMT Master – one of THE greatest watch designs of all time – the C60 expresses remarkable versatility.  Almost uniquely in modern wrist wear, the C60, which is functionally a high-performance dive watch, segues with alacrity from a diving boats deck to a panelled boardroom and sometimes without even a strap change – although there are several types for the more discerning style guru!

And yet, for all its style iconography, the C60 is at heart a watch with a heart of pure Swiss precision. The movement contained therein is an equally famous Swiss made self-winding movement with a 38 power reserve which is one of the most accurate and robust power trains available.









In the red corner: The red of the C60 Red has strong sporting associations given it is based on the Italian Racing Red of early Ferrari and Alfa Romeo cars – which certainly adds a certain Va Va Voom!

In the green corner: The C60 Green has more than a hint of British Racing Green in its pigmentation which, given Rolex was originally a British watch company, seems wholly appropriate, don’t you think?

The two new colours are available now on Pre-order for early April.
