C65 Trident Automatic

Blue

Combining the rugged '60s appearance of our acclaimed C65 Trident Diver with the convenience of a self-winding Swiss-made movement, the C65 Trident Automatic offers more than just a mechanical upgrade: with the adoption of raised circular indexes and a refined dial aesthetic, the Automatic has its own iconic look and feel.

  • Description

    A watch that pushes our C65 range's aesthetic further forward - in era, design and technicality - the C65 Trident Automatic takes the aspects that made the C65 Trident Diver such a hit, and then adds a refreshing twist.

    While an identity shift is evident in the C65 Trident Automatic, it's not a total departure. Even with the presence of a rotor used by its Swiss-made mechanical movement, the C65 still features the very same brushed and polished case as its hand-wound counterpart; sleek yet rugged, it too retains the 41mm size that proved such a sweet spot for many. Elsewhere, its trident deep-stamped backplate is a nod to the C65's dive watch roots, while its 150m water resistance is atypical of the watches worn over neoprene some fifty years ago.

    But some subtle changes have been made that advance the Diver Automatic's aesthetic into a new territory. Its bespoke unidirectional aluminium bezel has been stripped back to feature only Arabic numerals; similarly, its dial also dispenses with the millisecond indexes of the model preceding it. The most notable addition, though, is the adoption of circular shaped indexes - a reference to the Rolex Submariner, an undoubted icon of the late '60s period. Filled with Old Radium SuperLumiNova and surrounded by polished bevelling, they contribute to uncluttered dial aesthetic that guarantees the C65 Trident Automatic will impress in dressy and casual situations every bit as much as the underwater ones.
  • Movement

    The other star of the show, a Swiss-made Sellita SW200-1 movement, purrs away inside the C65 Trident Diver Automatic. A self-winding calibre widely relied upon throughout many releases in the Christopher Ward Collection, its 4Hz frequency equates to a smooth 8 ticks a second, while an in-built shock system ensures the C65 will cope with all manner of bumps and impacts - think dive entry and the like - with ease. Symbolic of the quality present throughout the C65, the rotor that'll help keep the SW200-1's 38 hour power reserve topped up during use has also been decorated with Christopher Ward's twin flag pattern; it's a level of detail nobody will see, but it's reassuring to know it's there all the same.
