The new Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Worldtimer (the model with reference number C01-43AWT2-S00W0-CC with a "Camel" leather strap is reviewed here, but there are two more versions available with "Tan" and "Blue" leather bands,) is the young watchmaking brand's latest attempt to conquer the niche of dressy UTC watches. This time, the watch offers a better calculated combination of good qulity, great exterior, and a nice automatic movement that is equipped with a complication that is manufactured exclusively for Chr. Ward by its long-standing Swiss-based partner.
It looks like Christopher Ward has finally caught that 'worldtimer' superbug that keeps infecting European watchmakers at an alarming rate. Still, their new Chr.Ward C900 Worldtimer offers a rather unusual combination of functions: it not only tells you time in home and second time zone, but also displays a three-letter airport code that makes it a tad easier to always set correct time in the place of your current stay.
The Swiss watch manufacture will soon start selling its new IWC UTC Edition Antoine de Saint Exupery limited edition (ref. IW3261-03) automatic watch. Available both in 18-carat red (pictured) and white gold alloys, the watch is a great tribute to the legendary writer-dash-aviator. The mechanism that powers it could be more exclusive, though.
