Christopher Ward has a new dive watch and it’s called the C60 #tide. Yes, that’s “tide” with a hashtag. Why the odd name? We’ll get into that later. The first thing you need to know is that this watch is heavily inspired by the limited edition C60 Blue, which the brand says was a hit mainly because of its relationship with the Blue Marine Foundation. Profits from sales of the C60 Blue went to the Blue Marine Foundation. Christopher Ward’s CEO Mike France says its customers are environmentally conscious and would like to see the brand do more to raise awareness of environmental issues like ocean pollution.

Like the C60 Blue, the C60 #tide features upcycled ocean materials, and #tide actually refers to #tide Ocean Material, a company that makes products from ocean plastic waste. This waste plastic is collected by #tide and converted into a premium yard material. It’s also used to make granules for plastic injection that are used in certain components of the C60 #tide watch.

Like other watches in the C60 Trident collection, the C60 #tide features a 42mm large stainless steel case that is 14.1mm-thick and water-resistant to 600 meters. The lug-to-lug measurement, according to the brand, is 49.32mm, so this is quite a sizable watch. The case features Christopher Ward’s signature Light-catcher design so it has beveled and curved edges that catch light. The lumed bezel is made of ceramic so it is highly scratch resistant. The C60 #tide comes with a #tide strap that’s made out of recycled ocean waste plastic. But if you prefer the feeling of steel, you can order the watch with a stainless steel bracelet, too.

The C60 #tide has a sapphire dial — just like the C60 blue and C60 Sapphire. The dial features wave patterns that are clearly a reference to the oceans. However, the patterns here are actually Super-LumiNova Grade X1 BL C1 that appears white in the day and only glows in the dark and at night. The hands and hour indexes are also filled with Super-LumiNova Grade X1 BL C1. There’s a date window at 6 o’clock, and above it is the Chronometer label that lets owners know they are wearing an accurate timepiece.

The movement within is a Sellita SW200 that’s been regulated to meet COSC standards. Therefore, it is accurate to -4 and +6 seconds a day. It beats at 4Hz and has a power reserve of around 38 hours. Unfortunately, you can’t see this movement because the watch has a solid caseback stamped with #tide’s logo. The blue ring around the logo is actually injected with recycled plastic. The screw-down crown features a small blue ring of injected recycled plastic, too.

For fans who missed out on the limited edition C60 Blue, this new C60 #tide is a no-brainer. It has all the best features of the older watch and adds some interesting new ones of its own, like that partially lumed dial. Furthermore, unlike the C60 Blue, the C60 #tide is a certified chronometer. Price for the Christopher Ward C60 #tide will start at $1,095 USD with a #tide strap. For more information, visit
