When we went hands-on with the Christopher Ward C63 Sealander GMT (seen here), we were instantly taken with the compact GMT watch. As time went on, there was a 36mm automatic added, as well as some new colors added to the family. Now, we’ve got two new colors coming – one for the GMT and one for the 36mm – as well as a new bracelet style for the brand.

The big, noticeable thing is of course the new colors – the Dragonfly Blue for the GMT (complete with color-matched date wheel) and Mulberry Red on the 36mm. Both are bright pops of color, and of course I’m a fan of a blue GMT. Along with those sunray dials, there’s a brand-new 5-link bracelet coming to dress these watches up. Here’s what CW has to say about things:

Alongside the new dial variants, Christopher Ward are also premiering their Consort bracelet.

The highly finished Consort bracelet presents a new side to the Sealander collection. Its five-link construction makes it super-comfortable to wear, while the butterfly clasp provides an easy way to remove your watch along with seamless security.

The C63 Sealander GMT will now be available with an irresistible sunray dial in mesmerising Dragonfly Blue that provides the perfect foil to the precision-engineered handset. A Swiss GMT movement that monitors two time zones at once and delivers a power reserve of 56 hours – plus a level of finishing that makes telling the time a sensory delight.

On the sunray dial, the Dragonfly Blue shade contrasts beautifully with the lume-soaked handset, while it also allows the orange fourth hand to deliver a ‘pop’ you can’t ignore. The dial also plays host to top-brushed, diamond-polished indexes filled with Super-LumiNova® Grade X1 BL C1 for low-light visibility, while the applied twin-flags logo – constructed in rhodium – adds depth.

Few things embody the phrase ‘small but perfectly formed’ better than the new 36mm C63 Sealander Automatic in ‘Mulberry Red’. The symmetrical, sunray-finished dial isn’t just beautiful to look at, but easy to read – day or night. Its Light-catcher™ case will sit snug on any wrist – male or female – while the Sellita SW200-1 self-winding movement ensures precision timekeeping around the clock. Meanwhile, the applied twin-flags logo adds depth, and is balanced by the date wheel at 6 o’clock.

If you want to pick one of these up, the new 36mm starts at $810 (on a strap) or $995 on the new bracelet, while the GMT commands $1,090 / $1,275. Check out the full C63 Sealander lineup over at christopherward.com
