CHRISTOPHER WARD C65 Trident Diver SH21 LIMITED EDITION

Touted by CW as a watch for the modern-day Bond; this is the new C65 Trident Diver SH21 Limited Edition!

A watch that the British watchmaker also says represents the modern-day capabilities of Daniel Craig. I’m sensing a man crush here and who came blame them; he’s the best Bond, yet!



Following the success of last year’s C65 Trident BRONZE SH21 Limited Edition, this new 150-piece Limited Edition comes with a modern tweak or two.



Firstly, the bronze case makes way for a lovely clean and bright, shiny, Stainless steel one, while there’s the inclusion of an indicator displaying what remains of CW’s in-house chronometer Caliber SH21’s 120-hour power reserve.



The watch’s dial layout blends rectangular markers, Arabic numerals and baton-shaped hands with Old Radium SLN with the most obvious additions to the C65 Trident Diver SH21 Limited Edition being the presence of 2x sub-dials and a date aperture.



The two sub-dials, a power reserve indicator at 9 o'clock and a small second complication at 6, are recessed into the dial and have a circular azure finish designed to capture the light from different angles;

these also introduce a splash of sporty red to notify the wearer that they are approaching the final 24hrs of Caliber SH21's impressive five-day power reserve.



Diver’s features include: a narrow aluminum bezel with applied numerals; a box-shaped Sapphire crystal; a push-in crown and a water-resistance of 150m.



The design of CW's 41mm so-called ‘light-catcher’ case accentuates gently sloping lines with brushed and polished steel surfaces to create a slimming effect on the wrist.



The new C65 Trident Diver SH21 Limited Edition can be had on a Stainless steel link bracelet or with one of 4 straps (2x leather and 2x textile). MSRP is from 2,050 - 2,160USD.



Thoughts? Classic yet stylish; it’s another handsome looking diver and with a high caliber movement to boot.
But personally I prefer the simpler dial layout of the Bronze version but with this one’s steel case.
