When we reviewed the Christopher Ward C63 Sealander after it’s release (which you can see here), I was particularly taken with the compact GMT (and there are other complications available as well). While I found the 39mm to be quite comfortable on the wrist, you may prefer something a bit more compact on your wrist. If that’s you, then you’ll want to check out the Christopher Ward C63 Sealander 36mm.
Basically, the Christopher Ward C63 Sealander 36mm is the same design we saw in the 39mm three-hander, just shrunk down a bit. The thickness is the same (11.25mm), and even the lug-to-lug is the same (45.8mm) from what we can see on the spec sheet. Design-wise, it has the same clean and clear handset paired with applied indices, and it’s all driven by the Sellita SW200 that the 39mm also has.
The big differentiator – past the smaller case size – are the dial colors. For this launch, there are four new dial colors hitting the catalog. All are bold, with the turquoise and yellow hitting the brights, while the red and green are on the darker side of things. While they all have the lovely leather strap that we liked on the GMT, you’ve also got color-matched (dial-to-strap) hitting as a limited edition as well.
The Christopher Ward C63 Sealander 36mm is available as of today. You have the dials in turquoise, green, red, or yellow, or black or white, starting at $765 on the strap. If you’d prefer a bracelet, those will start at $925. It’s also worth noting, if you go for one of the colorful dials, they come with a bonus color-matched strap.
