Christopher Ward Launches #TridentSummer & Two New C60 Trident Dive Watches Watch Releases Sponsored Post written for aBlogtoWatch by advertiser.

Summer is in full swing and Christopher Ward has just unveiled the two latest versions of their flagship dive watch, the C60 Trident Diver. The Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro and C60 Trident Day Date are two COSC-certified dive watches that have also been released as limited editions. And, while the overall look and design might seem familiar, both models have been visually updated with subtle touches of color throughout the dial and bezel. Christopher Ward is also announcing the launch of their #TridentSummer campaign, which offers a chance to save 15% when purchasing any watch from the Trident collection.

The Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro and C60 Trident Day Date -like other watches in the collection - aim to offer watch enthusiasts great value in the way of design, execution, and features. In many ways, these newest models mark an evolution within the Trident line-up and bring COSC-certified timekeeping at an affordable price. This is all thanks to the COSC-grade Sellita SW200 in the C60 Trident Pro and ETA 2836 in the C60 Trident Day Date. Both of these movements offer time-tested reliability, serviceability, and top-notch performance for the wearer. Pair it all with the classic Trident aesthetic with a monochromatic theme and you have some of the most versatile models ever released by Christopher Ward.

Both of the watches feature brushed, marine-grade 316L stainless steel cases that measure in at a comfortable 43mm in diameter. Water resistance is 600m and though the cases are more contemporary in size, the 51.5mm lug-to-lug distance makes these watches appropriate for a range of wrist sizes. There are also a few unique red color touches that compliment the the dial's white guilloche wave pattern. The first can be found at the 12 o'clock position on the durable unidirectional zirconia (ZrO2) ceramic bezel. The second can be seen on the seconds hand, which is completely finished in red along with its signature Christopher Ward Trident counter-balance.

These new aesthetic choices set the models apart from the rest and offer customers a chance to own a unique piece of Trident history. Looking at the dial, we find a high-contrast and complimentary design focus that matches perfectly with the brushed case and glossy bezel. There is also the inclusion of the classic Trident handset, which features Super-LumiNova that has also been applied generously on the indexes. To maintain its clean look, dial text has been kept to a minimum, with the standard Christopher Ward logo text at 9 o'clock and the chronometer designation and depth rating just above 6 o'clock. The Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro and C60 Trident Day Date divers also come with the choice of either a stainless steel bracelet, leather strap, NATO strap, or a high quality rubber strap.

  • Prices seem very reasonable and even better with the discount. Credible looking dive watch. Maybe not the handset I would have designed, but I guess it works and looks very CW-ish.

    • Moonraker

      The trident seconds looks more like the Devil’s pitchfork.

      • Actually I do like the seconds hand with the pitchfork.

  • BrJean

    Price-value ratio is so great that I don’t even want to start nitpicking.

  • Berndt Norten

    I can never really get into Trident. Freedent’s the one that took the stick out of gum. And put the fresh in my breath.

  • Marius

    I’m not a big fan of Christopher Ward (or any sub – €7,000 watch, for that matter), but I have to admit that this watch offers a fantastic value proposition.

    For around $1,000 (that’s the price of my daily brunch at the Hotel Hermitage in Monaco) you’re getting a watch with a decent design, a very good water resistance (600m), a decent COSC grade Sellita movement, and a ceramic bezel. That’s not bad at all. Considering that even crappy Kickstarter brands charge at least $500 for their turds, and that brands like MAT, Daedalus, and Maurice de Mauriac charge over $2,000, I would say that Chr. Ward offers a solid watch at a good price. Of course, the real question is what percentage of the watch is made in Switzerland, and how much in China.

    • TrevorXM

      I have to agree on the value here. This would make a great first introduction to mechanical watches to those who don’t want to, or can’t, jump into the big name money. Especially compared to all those junk Kickstarter watches.

      • proudAmerican702

        I’m one of those who can’t get into C Ward—because I’m not sure they’re done changing their logo around, so I’m not sure how well their products will keep their value in the market.

        But, I have to admit this is a very good-looking diver. The wavy dial, the applied indices, the bold ceramic bezel, and the adornment of the back case, all show this watch to be a budget version of CF Bucherer’s Scubatec. (And that watch, is my favorite—I have two!)

  • Yan Fin

    Nice, clean, good size, pleasant looks. Just remove or revise this awkward logo!

    • TrevorXM

      Have to agree. Logo needs work.

    • IG

      What is awkward about it?

      • Yan Fin

        An ugly logo. Looks like an email signature when sent in the hurry. Layout of words is just ruining the any CW watch for me.

  • Moonraker

    I would have gone with #TridentTrue.
    Hey, CW, I’m available for consulting work.

  • TrevorXM

    I just really like the red seconds hand. It kind of gives the watch (when paired with the hour hand) a retro devilish vibe.

  • John Stevens

    It’s not my cup of tea but I would much rather have this than that Maurice de Mauriac thing that was reviewed earlier.

    • Sheez Gagoo

      Lol. Even the name Maurice de Mauriac makes me laugh. Due to the fact that it`s a Zürich based brand (German part of Switzerland) they should name it “Moritz von Alt-Wiedikon”.

  • Sheez Gagoo

    Never was a fan of this brand but I have to admit, they grow on me.

  • SuperStrapper

    Maybe its because this watch is being discussed so soon after the MdM, but how can you complain? CW trident stylingbhas never been by cup of tea, but 1k for a Swiss movement 600m diver on bracelet with ceramic bezel, and everyone’s favourite superfluous accuracy raring. If I didnt have such a hard time with this handset I’d pick one up as a good weekend watch.

  • What’s going on with their QC? I’m seeing a lot of horror stories based on the most recent sale? Watches with the straps not fitted properly, badly aligned dials etc.

    • ???

      I just returned one due to damaged lug right out of box.

  • otaking241

    So we have a generic Sub knock-off case and Black Bay bezel with an Omega Great White dial finished with oddly long baton markers and the wonky CW handset. I know this brand has some pretty enthusiastic fans but I’m just not seeing it…

    • Sheez Gagoo

      Ok, it has a bezel that looks like the Black Bay and yes it has a dial that looks omegaesque and I accept that you don`t like the markers and the hands but I can`t see any similarities with a sub. I think the hands and the markers and the combination of the “copied” elements gives it a quite an unique character. And not even the Tudor has a ceramic bezel. No offense.

      • Every dive watch looks like a Sub. No wait. The Sub looks like every dive watch. It’s a conundrum……..

        • Sheez Gagoo

          No and no.

          • Thanks. I needed help with that one.

          • Sheez Gagoo

            You`re welcome.

          • Sheez Gagoo

            Sorry, sometimes I don`t get sarcasm.

      • otaking241

        The oyster case and bracelet have been knocked off and re-knocked off so many times that it’s become the de facto dive watch design–so much so that it’s hard to recognize the origin anymore. Giving it a second look the curve in the lugs is a bit distinguishing but still the overall impression is way too generic. Ceramic bezel is nice I guess and at this price point it’s hard to complain too much but I would prefer a bit more originality and care given towards creating a cohesive whole. Things CW is not renowned for…

        • Sheez Gagoo

          Ok. Free country or world. I like this watch very much. You don`t. I think it has a lot of character. You don`t. I agree, the oyster has been nocked off a billion times, I don`t see this on this watch. Feel free not to like it. It`s hard to build a real diver without beeing generic in a way, because there are a lot of official norms in case of design, lume and numerals to follow. Cheers.

  • Lincolnshire Poacher

    I’m going to poke my head above the parapet and say I’m used to the new logo now. I saw it on one of their new Malvern tonneau/square dress watches, and it really worked. I still like the old logo, (not the old, old logo – though that’s fine too).
    These white Tridents with there black ceramic bezels certainly have wrist presence, and the red touches look good. They change the look a little from the white/silver hand-set.
    As everyone seems to agree, the quality is up there with the $3-4,000 stuff. The case always struck me as being particularly well finished and solid.

  • BNABOD

    Just don’t like the trident second hand but the overall package is certainly a decent deal.

  • Sheez Gagoo

    Like Marius I never liked this brand. But this one is to good and to beautifu to be hated. For this price, there are just very few watches around. I proudly admit, this is a watch that I like and even would buy. As the Germans say: Ehre wem Ehre gebührt.

  • Warsh

    I never liked this brand. ABTW really ought to make these “sponsored posts” (aka ads) more clearly labeled. It’s too easy to mistake them for a real review — and even those are almost always super friendly.

    • Esteban

      See Mr. Ariel? We as a bunch think your sponsored posts are somewhat lacking.

      • Shinytoys

        Careful with “we” and the “bunch”…

        • Esteban

          I’ve seen it mentioned in that light a few times, thus “we” and “bunch”. Not a single “supporting” opinion, until your answer now, which doesn’t really count because you’re replying, not offering it originally (also, you’re not even offering your opinion, just choosing to be, what, insulted? on my use of “we” and “bunch”): “oh my gosh Mr. Ariel, your Sponsored Posts are GREAT, FANTASTIC! I can’t believe you mirror my thoughts exactly on this clown watch no decent human being will be caught wearing ever!”

          I’ve been having a few mails with Mr. Ariel about this (because I fucking care about how I waste my time reading about watches, and there’s always a way to make things better), and from what I gather of those, he’s really preoccupied about the way he can better his handling of sponsored content, so you can go and “careful” some other way…

          Thin skinned people just for the sake of it everywhere.

          • Shinytoys

            I simply don’t agree with your opinion, nor your logic…you certainly aren’t speaking for me. Don’t like sponsored articles, don’t read them…

          • Esteban

            Such an american, millennial way of doing things: if you don’t like something, look the other way.

            Why? There’s a chance (particularly in this day an age, where I can come in direct contact with the boss of a publication!) that I might do something about it, so.. I am.

            I don’t care where you’re from, or your age. And let’s asume you “win” the argument by saying something very clever; save it.

          • Shinytoys

            Let it go ….dude, just let it go…

          • Shinytoys

            Smoking job with that “much thicker skin”, and the inclusion of ALL American’s…well done…you speak for all of us in our tiny country. What monster piece of real estate do you live in…perhaps we’ll take a poll there…

          • Esteban

            I live in America too. Not my fault your country doesn’t have a name.

            (What you’re doing is called a straw man fallacy; it’s a logical fallacy in which one starts diverting from the original subject in the hope of ridiculing the interlocutor (actively attacking him), thus invaliding his argument. When committed, there’s no point in further dialogue).

            Oh, and didn’t you previously said “let it go dude”?

            Get.

          • Shinytoys

            you mad bro…?

          • Shinytoys

            Thick skin bro?

          • Shinytoys

            you speak for no one but your pathetic self Estrella….

    • Phil

      I like the brand and don’t mind the sponsored posts, by Christopher Ward or anyone.
      The sponsored posts are clearly labelled.
      At least Ariel’s approach is honest, rather than editorial which is obviously influenced by advertising revenue.

  • Shinytoys

    That’s a smart looking watch and a high value for the dollar when you consider the engine its running and the COSC certification. Make mine the day date…

    • With fries and a Coke?

      • Patrick S

        No, with Jack & coke 😉

  • Esteban

    Yet Another Diver.

  • Mark1884

    Really liking CW and what they are doing. So many companies out there could take a lesson from them. Unlike a lot of the junk we see here, CW offers real value and quality – in my opinion.
    Who else can put you into a COSC & ceramic for under 1k?? And it looks great – my opinion.
    Having said that, I don’t care for the white dial. Not enough contrast with the hands. But that is just personal preference.
    I do not own one……… yet.

  • Yojimbo

    I am physically repelled by the watch brand’s name and always have been

  • egznyc

    Maybe it’s just me but I think the legibility would be much greater if the applied lume-filled hour markers were black – not silver – surrounds.

    Overall a decent value and a decent looking dive watch, but it isn’t something I’m salivating over, either.

  • Ulysses31

    Its an elegant watch as I have said time and again. The logo destroys it though. Let’s have a “design the new CW logo” contest so someone with a little talent can fix this problem.

  • Simon_Hell

    I don’t care much for this brand, but if there’s one thing I liked about it, it was the old CHR.WARD LONDON logo.
    It had class, it had great type face, it was mysteriously inexplicable (why CHR.?)

    This new logo is practically a no-logo. Though it nicely completes the mediocrity that the brand represents.

  • CC resident

    I have to agree with the logo comments, but this watch looks pretty damn beautiful. Considering this as a gift for a friend of 35 years that has always wanted an auto.

  • BigDaddy

    Had one of these, nothing but trouble. Very poor mechanically and the send it back to London service model is not really practical from the USA. Too bad because they look great.

    My comments are on the non COSC version. No experience with the COSC.
