Christopher Ward C60 Sapphire Dial

Post by Racer-X » April 30th 2020, 5:39am

"As a relatively young brand, Christopher Ward has set itself apart from the pack of fellow newcomers with a focus on movements, a value driven price point, and distinctly British design sensibilities. One of the cornerstones of this approach has been the staple C60 dive watch series, which has evolved over the years to create an array of capable and unique riffs on classic diver principles. The latest of these, the Christopher Ward C60 Sapphire, combines a unique clear-dial alternative to the skeleton watch theme with a playful new colorway and solid finishing for this price point.

.... As the name might suggest, the transparent dial of choice here is made from sapphire, tinted to a matching blue to the caseback."

Not a fan of this one. Translucent dial doesn’t do it for me.

That could work well in something along the lines of a complete calendar or a chrono with a skeletonized baseplate - the translucent sapphire would be just enough to see the module or the chrono assembly at work. Here, it's only a view of the keyless works and the date wheel.
Sure, it wouldn't be my kinda wartche, but at least it wouldn't be boring. This? This is fucking boring.

In a dive or dive-style watch, this really looks rather idiotic.
