Every C63 Sealander watch employs the brand’s Light-catcherTM round stainless steel case. It has a water resistance up to 150m/15ATM, thanks to its screw-in exhibition caseback and screw-down crown. For the C63 Sealander Elite, the crown is the brand’s new retractable design.

For C63 Sealander watch collection, Christopher Ward selected the Sellita SW base calibre, adapted to suit each of the trio. In the entry-level C63 Sealander Automatic, the Sellita SW200 shows hours, minutes, seconds and date.

For the C63 Sealander GMT, the new and upgraded SW330-2 variant not only adds the display of a second time zone but also allows for a more precise GMT setting than the earlier version.

Not only is the Sellita SW330-2 new for this year, it seems the C63 Sealander GMT may be the very first watch to use it. Lastly, in the C63 Sealander Elite, the SW200 undergoes rigorous testing to earn COSC chronometer certification.

All are fitted with the unique Christopher Ward quick-release strap and bracelet system for easy interchanging of straps, including a bespoke metal bracelet with micro adjustment.

The least-expensive mechanical model, the C63 Sealander Automatic has a 39mm diameter case. Offered with a choice of black or white hand-finished, polished lacquer dials, with applied, faceted brushed and polished indexes, the C63 Sealander Automatic enjoys a power reserve of 38 hours.

The hands and indexes of all C63 Sealander watches are embedded with Super-LumiNova Grade® X1 BL C1 for ensuring optimum visibility in the darkness.

For the C63 Sealander GMT, the case size is the same at 39mm while the power reserve extends to 56 hours.

The second time zone is indicated by a large orange hand with white luminous infill. It, too, is available with black or white hand-finished, polished lacquer dials, with applied, faceted brushed and polished indexes.

For the flagship C63 Sealander Elite, the power reserve is shared with the C63 Sealander Automatic while the case size increases to 40mm and the material for it is Grade 2 titanium.

Arguably the most-accessible COSC-certified chronometer available, and Christopher Ward’s lightest ever mechanical watch, the C63 Sealander Elite has a matte black dial with see-through segments.

The new C63 Sealander Collection is available from £595 for the C63 Sealander Automatic, from £795 for the C63 Sealander GMT and from £1,150 for the C63 Sealander Elite.
