The new Christopher Ward C3 Malvern Chronograph MKII, always a good looking watch and one of the earliest the company produced, has just received a subtle facelift. It’s still sporty, and still represents outstanding value for money for a Swiss-made watch in Christopher Ward’s pioneering style.
The watch takes its design cues from vintage Aston Martin dashboards, and has lost none of its English appeal. If anything, the Aston Martin inspired chronograph eyes have been given even greater prominence. The case has been trimmed just a fraction to 39mm (it was previously 40mm) and features a metal one-piece optic white dial which gives the watch a fresher and more contemporary look while also providing even greater clarity.
With a white dial there is a choice of gold or silver bezel and indexes, but you can also opt for a charcoal galvanic sun-ray dial which is available with either an Italian leather strap or a high grade stainless steel bracelet. The C3 Chronograph MK II is powered by a quality Swiss Ronda 5040.D quartz movement and is water resistant to 50metres.
Prices start from just £215.00, (approx US$345.00) putting the luxury of a quality British designed and Swiss-made watch within reach of almost everyone.
