When looking at the watchmaking landscape of 2020, fans of affordable watches should be in awe of the variety of options available. Every day there seems to be something new and exciting, but, if you were to roll back the calendar ten years or so, pickings were slim. Crowdsourcing wasn’t a thing, Instagram had just kicked off, Worn & Wound was just an idea in our heads, so the affordable scene, so to speak, was limited to forums. Yet, despite the challenges of exposure, one brand managed to not only make it work, but thrive. One of the earliest direct-to-consumer brands, Christopher Ward, now 15 years old, are trailblazers, ushering in a whole generation of brands.
Please join us for an Instagram live discussion about this project with Mike France, CEO and Co-Founder of Christopher Ward and Zach Weiss at 11am EST, 11/17/20
A brand we’ve been writing about since year one, Christopher Ward has always represented many of the same principles that we built Worn & Wound on. Value, quality, accessibility, honesty, and a lack of pretension. Over the years, it has been amazing to watch them refine and develop their brand and their watches to where they are now, which is ranking amongst the best watches available at their price point, and a few notches higher as well.
Today, after nearly 10 years of working together, we’re honored and excited to announce our first collaboration with Christopher Ward; the C65 Sandstorm and C65 Sandstorm Blackout Chronometers.
Please note: we’re running this post 3 hours before the watches are available for purchase (12PM EST) in order to give people some time to learn about the watches, enjoy, and decide if they want to buy them.
