Christopher Ward C9 Gold Bezel Limited Editions

British luxury watch brand Christopher Ward has launched a stunning golden quartet of models in the flagship C9 Dress range with gold detailing added to create luxurious new adaptations of four of the brand’s classic C9 models: the C9 5 Day Automatic Limited Edition – 18ct Gold Bezel, C9 Jumping Hour Mk3 Limited Edition – 18ct Gold Bezel, C9 Big Day Date Limited Edition – 18ct Gold Bezel, C9 Single Pusher Chronograph Limited Edition – 18ct Gold Bezel.

Each of the four models is presented with an 18 carat solid gold bezel and gold dial accents in a limited edition of just 50 pieces, combining some of Christopher Ward’s most accomplished movements with classic gold tones in a sophisticated expression of the brand’s quintessential English character.

All models are available to pre-order at www.christopherward.co.uk for end of October delivery.

C9 5 Day Automatic Limited Edition – 18ct Gold Bezel
As the first watch (July 2014) to house Christopher Ward’s revolutionary in-house mechanism, Calibre SH21, the C9 5 Day Automatic offers the understated English design elegance of the C9 aesthetic that has become a signature look for Christopher Ward. A year on from its stunning launch that style is given a new golden expression with the introduction of the 18 carat solid gold bezel and golden dial accents behind which beats a 120-hour power reserve driven by Johannes Jahnke’s twin barrel construction in a series connection, blending power and accuracy with style and sophistication.
The C9 5 Day Automatic 18ct Gold Bezel is available as a Limited Edition of just 50 pieces worldwide at £2,175 with Italian leather strap; £2,275 with fully integrated stainless steel bracelet with butterfly opening.

C9 Jumping Hour Mk3 Limited Edition – 18ct Gold Bezel
Johannes Jahnke’s brilliant jumping hour modification of the ETA 2824-2 automatic movement is presented in a new golden expression of the definitive design of the Mark 3 version.

Arabic numerals are introduced in the gold-accented hour change aperture, enhancing the jumping hour complication with an even stronger visual presence. The fluency of the design is further expressed by the simple, beautifully-crafted engineering of the rest of the dial, with its 18 carat solid gold bezel and the perfect proportions of the case, horns and crown.
As always with Christopher Ward, with style comes substance; Calibre JJ01 beats beneath the dial and is visible through the exhibition case-back, the movement that Johannes Jahnke has continued to refine to make it, arguably, the most precise jumping hour mechanism the world has ever known.
The C9 Jumping Hour Mk3 18ct Gold Bezel is available as a Limited Edition of just 50 pieces worldwide: £1,795 with Italian leather strap; £1,895 with fully integrated stainless steel bracelet with butterfly opening.
