It was a red-letter day in July 2014 when we launched our in-house movement, Calibre SH21, to an unsuspecting assembly of industry journalists. Small, independent watch brands like us just aren’t supposed to take on the big boys (and beat them) at their own game. I guess we just hadn’t read the rule book – again.
Introducing a superior new premium dress watch aesthetic, the C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve has at its heart a new automatic power reserve version of our in-house movement, Calibre SH21, making this a hugely significant timepiece for Christopher Ward. With timeless, understated English design supported by unimpeachable Swiss technical excellence, the all-new C1 Grand Malvern rewards a detailed examination.
Precise. Legible. Beautiful: the C8 Power Reserve Chronometer is a watch firmly rooted in the tradition of British aviation timepieces like the Smith’s Mk II A clock. But its looks are just part of the story: powered by a new complication of Calibre SH21, the watch can run for an incredible five days on just one charge.
The first watch to house our SH21 automatic movement, this timepiece combines classic English design – check out those beautiful hands – with a calibre that boasts a power reserve of 120 hours which means you can leave it off your wrist for up to five days and it will still be keeping accurate time. A revolution in UK watchmaking.
The use of Roman numerals and the small seconds subdial point to a timepiece very much influenced by centuries of British clock- and watchmaking history. We feel that the masters who made Britain the centre of the horological world would approve of the hand-wound version of Calibre SH21 that beats underneath the watch’s beautiful exterior.
