Christopher Ward C900 Worldtimer Watch A Striking, Magnificient and Creative Time Piece


There is another great entry from the creations of Chris Ward, the new model, the C900 World Timer. This is a striking, magnificent and a creative time piece which is a treat to the eye. The world timer is most useful wrist watch especially in these days where we all know people around the globe. Besides, it is easy to use. It should reduce confusion when reading two different time zones.


The design is elegant and significantly good and makes it look even better. It measures 43 x 51 x 12.4 mm and is bigger than a formal watch. But with its design of conservative lines and relatively thin profile, it looks masculine and refined. It features a rather brilliant dial and display of the world’s time zones. The dial is immediately eye-catching. The central case is a simple slab-sided cylinder with a fairly thin bezel, flaunting the wonderful dial, with strong and slightly tapered lugs. Though the case is plain, it gives the right amount of sparkle without becoming a scratch magnet or overly dressed because of its combination of brushed and polished finishes. It comes on a very nice navy blue alligator strap. The buckle needed a firm press to close; this really looks stylish and well made.


With 24-hr time for both primary and secondary time zones, the dial really reflects the unique functionality of the watch. The really interesting thing is how that second time zone is set. You have the airport code of your selected city indicated up at 12 o’clock.   Second, you get a little red dot popping up on the map that corresponds with the selected airport.  Over laying the multilayer dial is a world map, with raised meridians of longitude and latitude.  The map on the watch dial looks very pretty but at the same time it is being used for something. And the topping on the cake, is the use of a red dot on the map to indicate the city location of the selected time zone. A city/time zone can be selected through the crown and is further more indicated with three letters in the aperture at 12 o’clock. The automatic movement modification by Johannes Jahnke features 24-hr time, dual-time, location indicator, hand winding, hacking, highly modified from ETA 2893 and a power reserve of about 40hrs.

The matching between the midnight blue and the dial creates a wonderful harmony between the two colours.  The classic design of the dress strap, its nice texture and the tapering design have been skillfully mixed to achieve an amazingly attractive design. The Bader deployment clasp creates a clean look because tail passed under its other side. Alongside the clean look, the clasp has a double button for enhanced security. As a whole the design is superb and well worth looking.

The look of the watch is sophisticated and mature and is dress watch for formal occasions.

Finally, this has got an excellent design and accessibility and is another successful venture from Chris Ward. It makes a rather innovative worldtimer.
