There really is horological life beyond SIHH and to prove it, Christopher Ward has announced a new version of their C60 Trident Dive/Sport family with a radical re-engineering and design advancement across the new generation of the brand’s most popular range.
From the new entry-level quartz to the flagship COSC model incorporating Christopher Ward’s first in-house movement, Calibre SH21 – the new Trident collection has improved quality and choice at every price point.
The C60 Trident Pro and C60 Trident GMT remain at the heart of the Trident collection, powered by the same movements. The new arrivals are led by the flagship C60 Trident COSC, featuring Christopher Ward’s in-house movement, Calibre SH21, at the heart of this chronometer version – only the second model to carry the pioneering innovation.
The entry-level quartz model, C60 Trident 300 is powered by the Ronda 515 calibre. New baton-style indexes of the mechanical versions are deep-filled with the new SuperLuminovaTM SLN T C1 lume paint to provide brighter and extended luminosity above that of the Mark 1 model.
The new Trident case, in marine-grade 316L steel, clearly echoes the design of the original but has been comprehensively re-engineered, including sharper and improved architecture and finishing. The three mechanical versions are capable of withstanding water pressure at up to 600m (2000ft) and have been upgraded to include zirconia ceramic (Zr02) bezels while the quartz version has retained the aluminium bezel of the original and, as denoted by the name, is capable of depths to 300m (1000ft).
This re-definition of Trident also extends to the case-back, with the Trident logo deep- stamped into the stainless steel plate, producing a 3D appearance that was first seen in the C65 Trident Classic. Watch straps are also re-designed with a choice of natural rubber dive straps, Italian leather straps, a leather NATO and a marine-grade stainless steel bracelet.
The re-engineered C60 Trident collection directly replaces and enhances the brand’s global best-selling range, launched in 2009, creating a refreshed new expression of the Trident family values.
