C60 Abyss

C60 Abyss from Christopher Ward

British brand Christopher Ward specialises in high-quality mechanical and quartz timepieces designed in the UK and manufactured in Biel, Switzerland. Its new ‘blacked-out’ C60 Abyss watch is the latest addition to the Trident 3 family, a bestselling series within the CW Collection, blending the style of a modern dive watch with rugged build quality.

Water-resistant to depths of 600m, the stealthy 42mm C60 Abyss model features a matte black dial, brushed ceramic bezel insert and black Super-LumiNova®, with red detailing accentuating some of its most identifiable features including a Trident-shaped seconds hand.

The central case has been finished in gunmetal with bezel and case back coated in black DLC – ideal for operating under the radar.
