This Thin Bronze Diver Is an Incredible Value for the Money

It even features a chronometer-grade movement with a 5-day power reserve.

Earlier this year, British watchmaker Christopher Ward unveiled the C65 Trident, a slim, vintage-inspired dive watch rocking a hand-winding movement. It seemed perfect for those wanting a rugged, vintage-style tool watch with lithe proportions that made it suitable for wearing with formal clothing – in other words, an absolute winner. Now, Christopher Ward is expanding on the design, giving it a couple of very appealing upgrades in a new limited edition.

The most apparent change is the case. Forgoing the old watch’s stainless steel case, the new C65 Trident features a case (still 41mm like the original and water resistant to 150 meters) made from solid bronze. This gives the diver a beautiful, almost rose gold-like look out of the box, but the watch will eventually patina with age, making it unique to the wearer. The case is then paired with a handsome blue bezel and dial.

The new addition underneath the hood is a big deal, too — the watch now uses Christopher Ward’s own in-house developed caliber SH21. It boasts hand-winding (keeping the watch thin), chronometer-certified accuracy and a whopping 120-hour power reserve. These are the kind of specs you’d expect to see on a movement from a high-end Swiss brand (with the associated high-end price tag), but this entire package remains affordable at just $2,110. That’s an absolute steal for what you get, but Christopher Ward is only making 150 pieces, so if you want one, consider acting sooner rather than later.
