The Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro is a great diving watch. This watch covering virtually every part of this most iconic of diving watches.
The completely re-engineered and upgraded 316L marine-grade stainless steel case now incorporates a zirconia (ZrO2) ceramic unidirectional bezel for fracture toughness and scratch-resistance and has been constructed to remain completely watertight at up to depths of 600 metres – twice that of its famous predecessor.
This Christopher Ward dial has retained the distinctive guilloche wave pattern of the first Tridents but the new indices are now deep-filled with the most recently developed SuperLuminova – SLN T C1 – for additional luminosity.
The all-new crown makes it easier to use, as well as improving its relationship to the case, and the back-plate is a genuine tour de force in its own right with the Trident motif deep-stamped and proudly prominent.
If the self-winding movement is the same it is only because there is no better available mechanism for this diving watch.
This is a watch designed to excel at limits way beyond anything most of us will ever experience. Nevertheless, wearing a C60 Trident Pro 600 will bring a close-up appreciation of what excellence looks and feels like.
