Product Description

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!

Technologically and aesthetically superb
Review by Berkshire
After reading several articles about how some watchmakers are turning to new technologies I decided on a trip to London and Bond Street to look at a couple of examples, the Omega Dark Side of the Moon and the IWC Top Gun; both high-tech ceramic, light weight, scratch resistance watches with arguably that 'wow factor'. I'm not going to make a comparison with the C1000 as that would be plain stupid but what I will say is that I believe that all three watches share the same advanced composites yet the CWL comes in at a fraction of the cost of the others. In my opinion that was a good reason to take look at the C1000. Having read the reviews and followed the forum threads I was still left with more questions than answers. My wife suggested that I should make an appointment to visit No.1. Without seeing the C1000 in the flesh I can honestly say that it would have been impossible for me to fully appreciate the watch.

In the looks department what struck me first was the motto etched into the matt black chunky case. I was also drawn to the subtle design clues which in my mind made the watch especially easy to read. In the power department I was impressed by the modified 7750 movement. With a little research I discovered that the movement is the most successful automatic chronograph ever produced, which I believe is also found in a range of high-end watch brands; including IWC, Tudor, TAG Heuer, Panerai and Hublot. I also understand that the movement celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and that it would easily meet COSC Chronometer standards, kinda added bonus for me. Needless to say I'm delighted with the watch.
