INTRODUCING THE CHRISTOPHER WARD C9 P2725 TM-B WITH METAL FROM A HURRICANE FIGHTER PLANE
Worn and Wound
A few years back, when Christopher Ward unveiled its rebranding and began efforts to redesign its catalog of watches, the aviation-inspired C8 line saw some dramatic changes. We wrote about the technically-robust C8 Power Reserve Chronometer, one of Christopher Ward’s earliest entries into the line to feature the new direction from the brand. That watch was powered by the company’s in-house, SH21 movement—a COSC-certified, five-day hand-cranker. Aesthetically, the watch drew inspiration from the Spitfire cockpit clock, using “old radium” lume, red accents, and two-tone hands to capture the spirit of the design. Despite the historical influence, however, the watch was decidedly contemporary in its approach.
