British luxury watch brand Christopher Ward expands its popular dive watch collection Trident by unveiling the C65 Trident Bronze SH21 Limited Edition, a retro-inspired dive watch with technologically advanced timekeeping. Limited to just 150 pieces, the C65 Trident Bronze SH21 watch also incorporates the brand’s in-house movement, Calibre SH21, which is COSC certified, and rates for 120 hours of power reserve.
Building on the sell-out success of the C65 Trident Diver, the C65 Trident Bronze SH21 Limited Edition adds an extra wealth of exquisite bronze detailing that accentuates the blue of its dial and bezel. On the dial, baton-shaped hands have been plated with gold, and their centres filled with Old Radium Super-LumiNova; the same vintage-themed lume then features across the dial’s raised indexes and enlarged numerals at 12.
Underneath a glass box sapphire crystal, the bottom half of the C65’s dial is dominated by one of the most traditional of complications, a small second subdial complete with circular azzuré detailing that reflects light beautifully. Its push-down crown and 150m water-resistance echo the technicality of classic dive watches from the 60’s, while the subtle debossing of Christopher Ward’s twin-flags emblem at 12 o’clock is a small nod to the modern. Carefully manufactured with a mixture of brushed and polished surfaces, the C65’s bronze case measures in at 41mm.
Present in hand-wound form, the 27-jewel version of Calibre SH21 used within the new timepiece comes with a small second complication at 6 o’clock and a date wheel at 3. Every Calibre SH21 has been passed by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres.
