Christopher Ward's most technically sophisticated aviation watch is inspired by one of the most advanced military aircraft in the world, the RAF's multi-role combat fighter, the FGR4 Typhoon.
The watch, which is powered by a modified version of ETA's 7750 chronograph movement, is the first in our entire collection to have a high-tech ceramic case, making the C1000 Typhoon light yet virtually indestructible. Built around a titanium sub-frame for additional strength, the ceramic used is one of the most advanced composites in the world and at seven times stronger than steel, only a diamond will make a mark on the durable and highly scratch-resistant surface.
The SuperLuminova™ numerals of the charcoal dial are based on those used for the Typhoon’s Head Up Display (HUD) and in a particularly subtle touch, the chronograph eyes have been indented with the shape of the aircrafts after-burners.
The dramatic delta-wing shape of the aircraft is captured on the counter-balance of the second hand and the distinctive small forward wings, known as foreplanes, at the tip.
The trademark Christopher Ward deep-etched engraving on the reverse captures the plan of the Typhoon perfectly and the ensemble is finished superbly with a high density webbing strap and titanium buckle.
For those of us who dream, the C1000 is as close as we will ever come to being a fighter pilot!
