British watch brand Christopher Ward has partnered with Blue Marine Foundation to launch a limited-edition dive watch that pays tribute to the charity on its 10th anniversary.
The new C60 BLUE dive watch pays tribute to the ocean and the people protecting it for future generations. Designed in collaboration with Blue Marine Foundation – in celebration of the charity’s 10th anniversary – the NEW C60 BLUE has a mesmerising translucent sapphire dial that carries Blue Marine Foundation’s wave symbol and a watch strap made from reclaimed and recycled ocean plastic sourced by TIDE. All profits from this limited-edition watch go to the charity, so wearing it really does feel good in more ways than one.
Joining Christopher Ward’s Trident range of dive watches, the NEW C60 BLUE is a limited edition watch of only 500 pieces, and the brand’s first to combine a sapphire dial with a non-scratch ceramic bezel. It is a perfect companion for customers wanting a watch that reflects their eco-credentials as well as those who simply love the colour and aesthetic of the sapphire dial.
The C60 BLUE is water resistant to 600m which means it works as a professional diving instrument too.
Inspired entirely by the sea, the NEW C60 BLUE is the result of Christopher Ward’s affinity and appreciation for Blue Marine Foundation’s work. The charity, (also known as BLUE), is dedicated to restoring the health of the ocean by addressing over-fishing. In recognition of this, the NEW C60 BLUE’S sapphire dial carries a wave pattern inspired by BLUE’s logo, with a contrasting dark and light blue aesthetic symbolizing the clean water the charity is working to preserve.
Christopher Ward’s support for BLUE began last year when the brand donated five percent of proceeds from the sale of a best-selling watch collection. Now, with the C60 BLUE, Christopher Ward aims to donate more than £200,000 towards its mission to see 30 percent of the world’s ocean under effective protection by 2030.
The eco-credentials of the NEW C60 BLUE are further enhanced not only by its packaging, which is made from 95 percent bio-degradable materials – a first in the luxury watch market – there’s also the eco-friendly strap option created in partnership with TIDE made from reclaimed ocean plastic.
The new C60 BLUE is available now from £895. Customers can also ‘buy now and pay later’ (on all orders over £500) with just one click – simply opt for a six or 12 month repayment plan with 0% interest using PayPal Credit.
