If you recall, when we reviewed the Christopher Ward C63 GMT (you can see that here), I declared it to be my new favorite watch from their entire collection. For me, the 39mm case felt just about perfect. If you were holding out for something a bit smaller, then the just-announced C63 Sealander GMT 36mm is where you should look.

Now, in all respects (other than the case size), the C63 Sealander GMT 36mm is identical to the 39mm version. You have the same movement (which is a Caller GMT, so the GMT hand is set independently) as the larger version, and even the overall aesthetics are the same.

So, why would you opt for the C63 Sealander GMT 36mm? given that pricing is quite similar, it’s really going to boil down to what you feel fits your wrist best, either from a pure measurement stance, or from that of the visual look of things. Whatever the reason, this will fit smaller wrists quite well, and still perform just as superbly.

Now, for the pricing. The C63 Sealander GMT 36mm comes in at $1,225 on the Bader (three-link) bracelet, or $1,275 on the five-link Consort bracelet. Don’t care for metal? Then you’re looking at $1,090 on a rubber strap or vintage oak leather strap. Check out all the details, and order your own, over at christopherward.com
