Christopher Ward Offers C40 SpeedHawk Automatic Chronograph

Aug 19, 2009
The famous Swiss watchmaking house Christopher Ward, based in London, has just introduced its novel automatic C40 SpeedHawk Chronograph watch with the case design, borrowed from the brand’s gorgeous C4 Peregrine line.

According to the statement, posted on Christopher Ward’s website, the glorious ETA Valjoux 7750 movement is on full display through the crystal exhibition window in the case-back.

The 7750 movement is not a one-of -a-kind creation: it is utilized by many Swiss watchmaking companies. Extremely reliable, however, it can be manufactured in line with every brand’s specific requirements.

The stainless steel case of the Christopher Ward’s novel timekeeper features the dimensions of 42 mm x 16 mm. It demonstrates a perfect blend of satin finishing and hand-polishing. The case of the watch is fitted with a stainless steel uni-directional rotating bezel, which functions together with the internal tachymeter scale and chronograph in order to measure the average speed.

The dial is performed in black with red accents and white elements added. It is composed of three central hands, including a red seconds hand. The latter has a Peregine-shaped counterbalance.

Three chronograph counters, intended for hours, minutes and seconds, are placed at 12, 9 and 6 o’clock respectively. Both the day of the week and the date of the month are displayed through the aperture located at 3 o'clock position.

The timekeeping hands, top bezel marker and hour markers are coated with a luminous compound to enhance the low-light readability.

Both front and back sides of the watch are fitted with sapphire crystals. The dial side of the model is protected by a curved sapphire crystal; its rear side, meanwhile, demonstrates a sapphire crystal, which shows off the fascinating details of the customized rotor and movement.

The Christopher Ward C40 SpeedHawk Chronograph watch is accompanied by either leather or an alligator strap. The watch will be commercialized late in September.
