Having recently received the two exquisite Christopher Ward C60 Trident Forum Limited Editions, I was truly impressed with the design, fit and finish of the C60 series. So, when the recent sale on GMT watches occurred, I couldn't resist adding the C60 GMT NATO with orange indexes to my growing CWL collection. Having seen the photos of this model I thought I knew what to expect, but 'in the flesh' it even exceeds those expectations. Lets just say I'm very pleased. cheers

Great watch! Very British!!! Love the hands, especially the trident, and just enough orange to stand out. Truly unique! Congrats on a great, quality pick-up.

That is just THE best when a watch is actually better than you thought it was
going to be Rick ! Very Happy You can tell from your excellent pictures that Christopher Ward
was on their A game when designing this one sir. The classic case, fantastic
bezel, dial, hands, and of course the extremely cool nato couldn't be better !
This is the kind of watch that must really make you proud to be interested
in a brand. It's REALLY outstanding Rick ! Congratulations on adding this special
C60 to your collection. ..One thing that stands out with Christopher Ward is
that every watch seems to be designed with the fans of watches in mind. It's
almost like they know what you, or I like about watches, and then are able
to create that watch. Taking the best from vintage favorites, but also creating
their very own original additions to watches, or making entirely new designs.
Honestly, can never get enough of the hands on Christopher Ward watches.
The hour, minute, and second hands are beautiful, and really help set the
watches apart. Even those markers seem to be done to a different level.
The traditional shapes are met with what seem to be a larger size, as well
as a terrific orange color. Even the way those outer small dots play off of
the main dot markers, and dots on the bezel are exceptional. ..EVERY part
of this watch is outstanding Rick, and that NATO is one especially nice grand
finale to it ! My New Christopher Ward C60 Trident GMT 803574 My New Christopher Ward C60 Trident GMT 803574 Congrats, and keep enjoying !!!

Outstanding watch, and pics as always !

Thanks guys. I should mention that Christopher Ward now offers the C60 on various NATOs at a considerable savings over the same watch on a bracelet. A perfect solution for a 'strap guy' like me. Very Happy
