British luxury watch brand Christopher Ward launches new C9 5 day automatic, the first 40mm model from the brand to be equipped with in house developed calibre SH21.
The new C9 5 Day Automatic (40mm) follows in the pioneering steps of the 2014 launch of its big brother (43mm), which was launched simultaneously with Calibre SH21 – a debut that inspired a huge reaction from watch aficionados and the media, including a flood of requests for a smaller sized option housing the innovative SH21 movement.
The enthusiastic reaction to the C9 5 Day Automatic, the first model to house Calibre SH21, sparked a wave of calls for a smaller version. The new 40mm model expresses all the powerful design and technical qualities seen in the original C9 5 Day Automatic and gives those customers wanting a smaller size watch access not only to the C9 aesthetic but also the opportunity to own the stunning SH21 movement.
The new model is offered in three choices of dial colour – white, blue and a new charcoal option – and, behind the stylish galvanic sun-ray dial, the pièce de résistance on the new C9 5 Day Automatic is Christopher Ward’s in-house movement, Calibre SH21, viewed through the sapphire crystal exhibition window in the case-back.
