C60 Chronograph – Christopher Ward

Technical. Reliable. Accurate. The C60 Chronograph brings together the build quality of Trident dive collection with stopwatch functionality – on land or at sea. Powered by a Swiss ‘bicompax’ movement – hence the two subdials – it also boasts a ceramic unidirectional bezel and water-resistance to 600m. And at 42mm, it makes a statement whenever you wear it.

The ultimate diving chronograph

As a pure diving instrument, the C60 Chronograph can hold its own with the best. But this is so much more than a diving watch. Thanks to its Sellita SW510 BHa automatic ‘bicompax’ movement, the C60 Chronograph delivers stopwatch functionality through the ‘central-seconds’ hand and 30-minute subdial. There’s also a small-seconds counter for extra timing options.

Both subdials are framed by polished and brushed bevelled PVD rings, while a date window at 6 o’clock and the Christopher Ward logo at 12 supply balance. For colour, bright yellow on the Chronograph’s subdials and central-seconds hand provide contrast against the glossy black dial. And for visibility at depth (or in the dark) the iconic Trident minute and hour hands are filled with Super-LumiNova®.

Crafted from marine-grade stainless steel, the watch’s light-catcher™ case is comfortable to wear and beautiful to look at – and at 42mm, there’s plenty of ‘real estate’ for the dial to breathe. Both the watch’s ceramic bezel and Trident-stamped backplate are finished in diamond-like carbon (DLC), delivering a contemporary ‘stealth’ touch.

Finally, the C60 Chronograph has a screw-down crown and pushers to maximise water resistance.

Sellita SW510 BHa Automatic

Produced from the same patents as the legendary Valjoux 7750, the Sellita SW510 BHa is a ‘bicompax’ automatic movement with twin subdials and stopwatch functionality.

Like the 7750, the movement has a 48-hour power reserve and a beat frequency of 28,800 – but also adds two extra jewels, helping to reduce friction over time.

The SW510 BHa has two pushers. The top one starts the central second hand with minutes then amassing on a counter at 3. Pressing the lower pusher resets the hands back to their original position.

The SW510 BHa also has a date wheel which can be seen at 6 o’clock, while an integrated anti-shock system maintains accuracy under duress.
