Christopher Ward, the British-based watchmaker known for their accessible professional dive watches, has today unveiled their latest model with the new C60 Elite GMT 1000 (referred to as the GMT 1000 in this article). The new watch is the brand’s first design with both full diving and dual time functionality and comes as the second addition to the brand’s new professional diving series released earlier this year with the non-GMT C60 Elite 1000. The C60 Elite 1000 series came as a permanent addition to Christopher Ward’s offerings following the success of the C60 Trident Elite 1000, a limited edition run of an upgraded C60 Trident Pro 600 design— the brand’s previous highest grade dive watch series.
Among the various design features Christopher Ward has become known for in their dive watches— like a curvy case with downsized crown guards, trident counterweight on its seconds hand, and 9 o’clock logo placement— the watches in the new Elite 1000 series distinctly feature their namesake 1000-meter water resistance, a brushed finished grade 2 titanium case, and a COSC-certified chronometer movement. Together, these features upgrade Christopher Ward’s original Pro 600 design into an even more functional diver, offering fans of the brand an elevated professional-grade watch like few, if any, others at its price point.
