We’ve seen a number of auctions and fundraisers pop up to support the Ukrainian effort to resist the Russian invasion, as well as to provide humanitarian support. The most recent one is this 300-piece special edition Christopher Ward C63. Up front, you’ve got the blue and yellow of the flag, and on the back, the words ‘????? ???????!’ (Glory to Ukraine!) have been engraved.

For this effort, the plan is donate the profits from this watch to the Red Cross in Ukraine. To help increase the amount given, CW worked with suppliers to lower their costs. You’re pre-ordering it now (at $815, same as the regular version) with delivery anticipated for July 2022. Check it out directly at christoperward.com
