AND THE 2012 WINNER IS…
THE EXCEPTIONAL C900
CW’S AMAZING C900 HARRISON SINGLE PUSHER HAS BEEN NAMED WATCH OF THE YEAR 2012 BY THE KNOWLEDGEABLE ENTHUSIASTS ON THE CHRISTOPHER WARD FORUM.
The most sophisticated and most expensive watch ever produced by the company elicited rapturous praise from members of the independent forum. Only 250 watches of this limited edition, which sells for £2,450, have been made.
FIRING UP THE BLUEBIRD
THE C7 BLUEBIRD, THE FIRST WATCH TO BE DEVELOPED SINCE CHRISTOPHER WARD BECAME THE OFFICIAL TIMING PARTNER TO THE BLUEBIRD SPEED RECORDS TEAM, WILL BE OFFICIALLY RELEASED IN APRIL WITH PRE-ORDERS BEING TAKEN FROM MARCH.
The new watch is a chronograph in a limited edition of 1,912 examples, celebrating the year Sir Malcolm Campbell famously started the Bluebird legend.
It is the first of a number of watches that will be released as a result of the partnership, perfectly capturing the spirit and iconic looks of the record-breaking Bluebird vehicles.
The precision detailing includes the Bluebird emblem in guilloche form on the dial and as a ceramic feature on the head of the crown. In a very unusual design approach, the case back has been engineered to represent the famous conical hub caps of Sir Malcolm Campbell s cars, including the 350HP Sunbeam in which he gained his first land speed record at Pendine Sands, Wales in 1924 and the 1935 Bluebird in which he broke the 300mph barrier at Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah. The C7 from £499. For more on the C7 Bluebird, turn to pages 8-9.
