Christopher Ward has just announced the C8 UTC Worldtimer, a new GMT watch in their C8 Flyer Collection. This sexy little monster comes with a ETA 2893-2 movement with GMT complication and offers just enough modern styling to make this a unique entrant in the travel watch space.
The piece will cost $1,200 when it ships in October but you can pre-order now.
The watch even has a design story, which is imperative for all good online-only brands. Quoth CW:
It’s a 44mm watch with Superluminova on the hands and a great 3D dial. It also has an internal bezel for setting the current timezone. I personally really like the tan model but I wouldn’t kick the black and white out of bed for eating crackers. All in all this is the first Christopher Ward that I actually like and I’d be really interested in seeing this fellow up close. We’ll report back when we can grab a hands-on.
