Christopher Ward C65 Trident Automatic

Following the sell-out success of the hand wound C65 Trident Diver, Christopher Ward launches the C65 Trident Automatic.

The latest addition to the successful C65 Trident Collection, this self-winding timepiece has been created using the same 1960s-inspired design language as the wider collection but with a modified bezel and a bold new dial.

The C65 Trident Automatic uses the same sleek 41mm case as its hand-wound predecessor and maintains a height of 11.55mm despite its larger Sellita SW 200-3 movement. Crucially though, Christopher Ward has ensured that the new C65 Trident Automatic will be available at the same price as the hand-wound, £695, offering incredible value.

Underneath a glass box sapphire crystal, the C65 Trident Automatic’s matte finish dial, which is available in either black or blue, features raised dots and indexes that are filled with Old Radium SuperLuminova®. On the dial, Christopher Ward has also used the same baton shaped hands that were used on the original hand wound C65 as well as the iconic Trident counterbalance, with the main logo at 9 o’clock and the twin flag motif debossed at 12 o’clock. The watch face is then accompanied by a pared-down version of the C65 Trident Diver’s narrow bezel to complement the more complex dial design.

Christopher Ward’s C65 Trident Collection also includes the C65 Trident Diver, the C65 Trident GMT and the C65 Trident Bronze SH21 Limited Edition.

The new C65 Trident Diver Automatic is available to purchase from 1st February 2019.
