When it comes to the dive watches that Christopher Ward offers, your mind no doubt immediately goes to the Trident line. That’s the first exposure I had to CW as a brand. More recently, they went for the high-pressure specs, releasing a model capable of a 600m water resistance rating. For this latest version, they listened to feedback from the forums and came up with what we’re seeing in the Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro 300.

The first obvious change is right in the name, with the 300. Here, water resistance is cut from 600m to 300m. Which, if you’re being honest with yourself, is way more than enough for a dip in the lake or your pool. By dropping that rating, they were able to shave some thickness off of the case, with the 38mm version of the Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro 300 coming in at a positively crazy (for a dive watch) 11mm thick (the 42mm tops out at 11.5mm).

That slimming down of the Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro 300 – along with the three different case sizes – should make for a watch that is quite wearable for a wide variety of wrists. While the handset and the indices of the watch are recognizable as being a Trident, the dial has had some other changes. While the CW logo appears on the dial, the text of the brand name has been moved around back to the rotor. Additionally, the date window has been moved to 6 o’clock, giving an overall cleaner and more balanced look to the dial.

While the C63 Sealander may have moved into top spot in my personal CW rankings, there’s a lot to like with the new Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro 300. Along with the 3 different case sizes (38mm, 40mm, 42mm), you’ve also got four different dial colors (blue, green, black, white) and a variety of choices across bracelet or strap options. Pricing starts at $850 for the watch on a #tide or rubber strap, goes to $865 on a hybrid strap, and tops out at $1,050 on the steel bracelet. Check out the full range at christopherward.com

  1. Any idea what grade Sw200-1 the 300 has? I know it’s not COSC. But trying to decide if I want it or not. TIA
