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 aircraft's 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 canards, 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 beautifully supple leather strap.
For those of us who dream, the C1000 is as close as we will ever come to being a fighter pilot!
