Christopher Ward keeps growing its range of products using its first watch having a moon phase complication, the C9 Moonphase.
Located inside a 40 mm x 13.3 mm stainless situation offering water proofing to five bar (around 50 meters), the brand new Calibre JJ04 (Qq in the initials from the master watch manufacturing company of Christopher Ward, Johannes Jahnke) is dependent on an altered ETA 2836-2 using the integration of two additional gear systems integrating four wheels they are driving the moon disc along with a further two wheels for that setting mechanism. Some Hz (28,800 vph) self-winding movement guarantees a energy reserve of 38 hrs.
The movement from the large moon disc is smooth and continuous, in synch using the minutes and hrs, making the representation from the moon’s phase precise at any particular moment.
Once properly set, and presuming the watch runs continuously, the display would just be remedied by eventually every 128 years. The moon’s surface is three dimensional placed and given a semi-matt galvanic finish.
As the upper 1 / 2 of the center dial is centered through the moon disc, the low half is decorated having a guilloché motif in some way telling the tidal designs. The main one-piece metal dial will come in blue or silver, correspondingly with nickel or PVD gold finish hands and indexes.
The Christopher Ward C9 Moonphase could be matched up to some Louisiana alligator strap with deployment clasp or perhaps a steel bracelet with prices beginning at Euro 1,750 / USOne Dollar, 780.
