Christopher Ward C3 MKII Chronograph – Watch Collection No 22

Leave a comment


When designing this watch Christopher Ward were inspired by the dashboards of vintage Aston Martin dashboards which they saw at the Gaydon Heritage Museum. The salient features of the Mk11 version which I have added to my watch collection, are a slightly bigger 39mm case and a single piece optic white dial, resulting in a wonderfully uncluttered and simple  chronograph dial. This has been on my wish list for way too long, so when a nearly new one came on sale on the Christopher Ward web site for a bargain £150 I could not resist. In fact only the week before I bidded for one on Ebay which actually went for £190! I am delighted to have this beautiful, elegant quintessentially British watch in my collection.
