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.
