Christopher Ward, everyone’s favorite “premium British watch brand” is announcing the C8 Regulator Limited Edition, a regulator watch with one huge minute hand and hour and second sub-dials. Regulators have long been used in watchmaking ateliers to set the watches for testing.
From the marketing materials:
As noted above it runs a 6498 Unitas which means its hand-winding and probably ticks like a freight train when it’s quiet – just the kind of workhorse detail that makes big pieces like this one great.
The regulator will cost about $1,400 is is shipping on February 23. You can check it out here and we’ll try to get our paws on on to tell you how our regulation is going.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
