Christopher Ward Unveils The C1 Worldglow

Someone more eloquent than me will be able to explain why it is that we are drawn to watches with strong lume. Is it because of the added practicality of being able to tell the time when the sun goes down? Perhaps it’s because we just like things that glow in the dark. Regardless, Christopher Ward has taken its popular C1 Worldtimer watch and added a whole lot of lume to create the new C1 Worldglow that you see right here.
The main ingredients of the C1 Worldglow are identical to the C1 Worldtimer. This means you have a 43.5mm stainless steel light-catcher case that features multiple finishes and sweeping lines designed to reflect light and sparkle. It’s just 11.5mm-thick, so it shouldn’t be too bulky. Unfortunately, water resistance is just 30 meters, so I won’t want to bring it near liquids. The C1 Worldglow has a see-through sapphire caseback that allows owners to admire the movement within, which I will expound on later.

Hands-on Review: Christopher Ward C65 Sandhurst and C65 Cranwell

HomeWatch ReviewHands-on Review: Christopher Ward C65 Sandhurst and C65 Cranwell Watch ReviewChrWardHands-on Review: Christopher Ward C65 Sandhurst and C65 Cranwell A clean shot of the Dirty Twins by Tomas Rosputinsky April 06, 2020 MIN READHands-on Review: Christopher Ward C65 Sandhurst and C65 CranwellIt’s Sophie’s choice to pick just one of the two military novelties from Christopher Ward. Do you prefer the smaller 38mm C65 Sandhurst or the 41mm C65 Cranwell?
Tough as that decision is, it could have been tougher. You see, Christopher Ward introduced three military watches at once. To spare you from unnecessary pre-purchase overload, I dropped one of the three models immediately. More specifically, the C65 Dartmouth bearing the Royal Navy’s Naval crown on its backplate. Let’s say it is too Christopher Ward Trident and not as novel as the other two models. From the remaining duo, it took me just 10 seconds to arrive at the conclusion that I like the bigger Cranwell more. Yet I continu..

HomeWatch ReviewHands-On With The Christopher Ward C65 GMT Worldtimer Watch ReviewChristopher WardHands-On With The Christopher Ward C65 GMT Worldtimer Say hello to the new travelers’ watch by Tomas Rosputinsky March 27, 2020 MIN READHands-On With The Christopher Ward C65 GMT WorldtimerThis is the first Christopher Ward watch ever to combine GMT and worldtimer functionality. It also happens to be the first watch in the C65 divers’ range with a screw-down crown.
Having to wait to share this news with you for a couple of weeks has inspired me. One day, I will name my dog EMBARGO. I love the word. It’s the sound of it. When you say it out loud, your mouth is full of the word. I’ve become fond of the word since I started writing for Fratello and began encountering news releases with a publishing EMBARGO. While embargoes can be frustrating, being on the press side of them is a real privilege.
It’s a unique feeling to know about a watch before the entire world learns of it. The highest level..

Hands-On with Christopher Ward C65 Trident

HomeWatch ReviewHands-On with Christopher Ward C65 Trident Watch ReviewChristopher WardHands-On with Christopher Ward C65 Trident With in-house SH21 caliber by Tomas RosputinskyJanuary 02, 2020 MIN READHands-On with Christopher Ward C65 TridentThe dressiest diver you can get. Limited edition Christopher Ward C65 Trident with an in-house movement that runs for five days.
It looks as impressive on pictures as it does when reading the specs. Impressive enough to make me ask the Christopher Ward representatives to send us one of the 150 limited edition pieces for a hands-on review. They did send one and after 2 weeks on the wrist, I am just as impressed.

Christopher Ward C65 with a power reserveSince I can remember I’ve been fascinated by the power reserve complication. Yes, some might consider the complication a bit fancy and/or superficial. Some question its relevance in an automatic movement. I too have phases where I forget about my affection towards the power reserve. But each time ..
