stuff we drool about


Our watch obsession is becoming worrying, specially Dive watches, we absolutely love them! You can imagine how excited we were to get our hands on this stunning timepiece. The C600 Tri-Tech Diver Elite claims to be one of the most advanced dive watches ever made. Read our thoughts and check out some pictures below...  

Christopher Ward watch company was founded in 2004 in London UK. From the start the company has always tried to find a way for everyone to enjoy the truly visceral pleasure derived from owning and wearing a premium quality Swiss made watch. They wanted to create..."the cheapest most expensive watches in the world."
Christopher Ward has a great array of watches, divided in four main categories, classic, aviation, sport and dive. Check out their wonderful collection on their website. For now letīs stick to the C600 Tri-Tech Diver Elite...

The watch is top of the Christopher Ward dive watch range. Our first reaction was a pleasant surprise, we had seen photos of  it but had never held one in person. The color combination is unusual, matt black and lime green, but it looks great. The color contrast is important to never lose sight of the hands when trying to read the watch - remember, this is a professional dive watch, you need to have good visibility even in the gloomiest conditions underwater.
The Tri-Tech has a very clean and attractive dial with block hands and a white date window at 3 oclock. It features a color coded accented HEV (Helium escape valve - protects the watch under extreme pressure changes and is automatically activated.) at the 10 oīclock position, this is a very nice touch and helps to break up the blackness of the PVD case, itīs also a sure sign that this is a professional dive watch. The PVD coating of the case creates an ultra-hard surface for maximum scratch resistance, it also eliminates shiny surfaces and reflections (important when diving). 
The case at 43mm wide is not the smallest of watches, but it is certainly smaller than most chunky dive watches. We think itīs just the right size for a medium size wrist. It houses a Swiss automatic movement, and is depth rated to 500m(50 ATM), making this a serious diver. The large 4.5mm, AR coated convex thick sapphire crystal over the dial is domed a bit. This is often the case with watches that have a higher water resistance. The crown doesn’t poke you, the lower edges don’t cut into your flesh, it is smooth to the touch (but grippy enough) just like the rotating bezel. It screws down and has a guard built around it from the case to protect it.

The strap is one of our favorite parts of this watch, itīs very versatile, making it perfect for every day use. It features perforations to help cool and avoid a sweaty wrist, also some ripples (very traditional on divers watches) gives the strap some flexibility, a little stretch and comfort.

Overall this is a robust and long lasting watch, this thing can be worn like a land rover...all day, everyday. Perfect for divers, outdoorsy types, military types, or other types of adventures. The execution and quality of the C600 are superb, and Christopher Ward have covered all the bases at a more than reasonable price. Looks wise, it is gorgeous and unique. If youīre looking for a dive watch,  this is definitely one to consider.
In addition to the black dial with lime green, the C600 Tri-Tech Elite Diver watch comes in a yellow dial with black hands and hour indicators, as well as a metallic blue dial with black hands and indicators.
