By TLex Christopher Ward have announced a handsome new version of their iconic C60 Trident Diver family. Radically re-engineering and with plenty of design advancement across the range.
From the new entry-level Quartz to the flagship COSC model that is powered by Christopher Ward’s first in-house movement, the Caliber SH21, the new Trident collection sets out to raise the bar in terms of enhanced quality and choice at every price point.
The C60 Trident Pro and C60 Trident GMT are once again at the heart of the Trident collection, powered by the same tried and tested movements, which have been enhanced by a host of innovations.
Heading up the new collection, the flagship C60 Trident COSC, features Christopher Ward’s in-house movement, the Caliber SH21. It is only CW's second model to carry the pioneering innovation.
Not quite as exciting but audacious nevertheless, is the arrival of an entry-level Quartz model, the C60 Trident 300 that is powered by an accurate Swiss Ronda 515 caliber.
While the Trident family has been re-engineered, utilizes upgraded materials and boasts several design enhancements; it is unmistakably a CW Trident and retains much DNA, such as the retention of signature features such as the hands, Trident counter- balance and wave pattern guilloche dial.
The new baton-style markers of the mechanical versions have been deep-filled with new SuperLuminovaTM SLN T C1 lume to provide brighter and extended luminosity above that of the Mark 1 model.
The new Trident case, in marine-grade 316L Stainless steel, clearly echoes the design of the original but has been comprehensively re-engineered incorporating new sharper and improved lines and finishing. The three mechanical versions are capable of withstanding water pressure at up to 600m and have been upgraded to include Zirconia ceramic (Zr02) bezels. The quartz version has keeps the original’s aluminum bezel, and as its name suggests, is capable of depths to 300m.
On to the new caseback, with the Trident logo deep- stamped into the Stainless steel plate, producing a 3D-effect that was first seen in the C65 Trident Classic.
Complementing the expanded range of model, case size, movement and bezel combinations are re-designed natural rubber divers straps, Italian leather straps, a leather NATO strap and a marine-grade Stainless steel bracelet, creating a total of no less than, 133 versions of Trident.
