The new C60 Trident from Christopher Ward is a great looking watch at a respectable price (under $1,000). This piece also marks Christopher Ward’s first use of a bronze case, an alloy which has gained popularity in recent years thanks to its more rugged look and ability to develop a unique patina over time. Bronze alloys vary in formula which lend some to aging into different colors; Christopher Ward’s bronze, a Japanese-made multi-alloy bronze of copper and tin, reportedly ages to a discreet and distinguished copper brown with delicate textured hues for an individual, ‘vintage’ look.

A deep-hued, marine blue with a smooth-textured matte effect is a delightful complement to the bronze case. The C60 Trident Bronze Pro 600 is water resistance to a hefty 600m and is powered by the Swiss made automatic Sellita SW200 movement. . The C60 Trident Bronze is offered on a heavy textured blue canvas webbing strap with cream-white stitching ($910), blue rubber ($910), or aged brown leather ($910), available direct from manufacturer’s website. Great watch!
