Many brands have been embracing recycled ocean plastic, which, for many of them, is being provided by #tide Ocean Material. We’ve seen Christopher Ward utilize it in their straps, and now they’ve come up with a very specific watch to feature this committment – the Christopher Ward C60 #tide.
Now, to look at the Christopher Ward C60 #tide, it looks an awful lot like the Christopher Ward C60 Blue and the Chistoper Ward C60 Sapphire before it. And, well, there’s a good reason for it – this is very much the C60 that we’ve had all along (they can’t pivot quite a quickly to wholesale changeups like these folks can). Still, even with that, there are some differences here on the watch.
For starters, the Christopher Ward C60 #tide has a brand new dial. It’s still got the wave pattern to it, but it’s been adjusted a bit, giving it more of a stained glass feel to it (at least, that’s what I felt it was). They’ve also put a new caseback on the watch, featuring the hashtag symbol that is #tide’s identifier. And finally, you’ve got the option to pair one of the #tide straps in there.
Sure, it would have been cool to see the material integrated more, but bigger brands move more slowly, so we have what we have here. If you’ve liked the Christopher Ward C60 before this, you’re going to like this one just as much. For this one, pricing starts at $1,095 and there is also a bracelet option available as well. Our recommendation if you pick one up is to get the bracelet, and pick up the extra straps if you’re so inclined. christopherward.com

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.
