Founded in 2004, Christopher Ward is an Anglo-Swiss watchmaking company – and the world’s first online-only premium watch brand.
Watchmaking is the ultimate expression of art, science and engineering.
Every Christopher Ward watch brings idiosyncratic English design together with Swiss watchmaking expertise. Something we think should be available to as many people as possible.
Many high-end watch-buyers suspect luxury timepieces are overpriced but accept this as part of the
Christopher Ward doesn’t.
Christopher Ward makes premium timing instruments that are priced sensibly. Watches without meaningless celebrity endorsements or expensive middlemen. Watches created by the cream of Swiss watchmaking talent.
And every model with an industry-leading five-year guarantee.
Christopher Ward’s line takes in everything from diving watches (the iconic ‘Trident’ range) to the
Military collection – a range of timepieces inspired and approved by Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.
The recent timepieces include the C65 Super Compressor, the first authentic ‘super compressor’ diving watch in the 50 years; the C1 Moonglow, which charts the progression of the moon across its dial; and the C63 Sealander Elite, an ultra-light titanium chronometer fitted with an ingenious pop-out crown.
“We’re innovators,” says Christopher Ward CEO Mike France. “And while they’re careful to play by the horology rule book, occasionally they like to rip it up, too. England is the nation that gave the world the Aston Martin and the Sex Pistols. The design of our watches reflects both sides of nature. Often at the same time.”
