Christopher Ward enhances their Motoring collection with the launch of a new white dial version of the popular C7 Rapide Chronograph MKII – V390, providing further choice for motoring enthusiasts seeking a stylish, high quality, highly accessible entry chronograph model.
The credo “to race is to live” perfectly captures the spirit of the motorsport racing legends of the track to whom this exceptional chronograph pays homage.The Mark II version, launched in late 2012, took that spirit to a new level in offering a new Ronda movement, making it not only one of the most stunning of Christopher Ward’s motorsport watches but also the most accurate. A durable aluminium bezel and split-timing sub emphasise Christopher Ward’s intuitive feel for how to evolve a classic design without losing the essence of the original.
The model’s extensive features range from the enhanced clarity of the applied polished stainless steel numeral hour markers to a power saving mechanism operated via the stem, enabling a significant saving in consumption of up to 70%. To meet the race day needs of even the most ardent trackside enthusiast, the three elegant subdials display running seconds, chronograph seconds and a 30-minute counter, with the top subdial offering a double function enabling measurement from 1/10 of a second through to 10 hours.
Now offered in striking white as well as the original classic black dial, the Rapide is a complex and intricate chronograph with an impeccable racing pedigree and is offered in strap options of Italian black leather, high density rubber strap with ‘CW’ motif buckle, or fully integrated stainless steel bracelet.
The C7 Rapide Chronograph MkII – V390 with white dial is priced at £299 (leather and rubber strap options) or £350 in the steel bracelet.
