Christopher Ward C60 Trident PRO for BOND

By TLex Christopher Ward unveils a new design inspired by one of the world's most iconic dive watches, the Rolex Submariner as worn British spy and ex-Royal Navy Commander, James Bond in the 1962 film, Dr. No. Elements have also been taken from the famous 1954 Rolex GMT Master, which was around at about the same time as Ian Flemming started writing his first Bond novels. This comes as the 50th Anniversary of the James Bond films and the releases of the latest film, Skyfall approaches.

The 42mm, 300m, Sellita SW200 powered C60 Trident Pro unfortunately doesn't share any of the attributes that makes the original Bond watch what it is. There's no 'big crown' and it still has a crown guard. They didn't even use the lovely vintage-style lume that the first C60's had. No special caseback engraving either. However CW did though thoughtfully plonk the watch on a Bond NATO! A true tribute or just a case of cashing in on Bond's 50th Anniversary!? The C60 Trident-PRO Automatic SKBRG22 has an MSRP of £350.
