You’re going on holiday. You need a watch. Not a watch that has to be charged overnight, but a proper timepiece that you can wear at the beach, in the hotel and or at that fancy restaurant you’ve had your heart set on for the last five years.
On first glance, you may be thinking this is just another Trident diving watch. But a closer look brings something unexpected: a fourth hand. This is the ‘GMT’, providing the wearer with the facility to tell the time, via the 24-hour clock, in another timezone. Ideal for world travellers, being a Trident, it’s still waterproof to 600m, so you can dive and fly at the same time (not literally, sadly).
When the temperature warms up, you want a watch that won’t feel too heavy on your wrist. This super-slim model fits the bill perfectly. The new 40mm case, with its subtly polished facets and height of just 8.7mm, is beautiful, sliding easily beneath every shirt and blouse cuff. Ideal for walking around a new city or taking in the action at Wimbledon.
If you want to carry the spirit of travel with you, then the C9 Worldtimer, powered by Johannes Jahnke’s Calibre JJ03 movement, is a must. Not only does it tells the time in two time zones simultaneously, but also displays familiar airport codes (e.g. LHR and JFK) in an aperture at 12 o’clock. Cleverly, the location of the referenced airport is also shown as a red dot on the world map, while water-resistance to 50 metres means it’s ideal for the beach or hotel pool, too.
If you don’t want to think too hard about your travel watch, then the C60 Trident 300 is an obvious choice. But don’t let its diving-watch good looks fool you into thinking it’s just a fashion timepiece. No, the 300 is waterproof to 300m, constructed in steel and aluminium and powered by a highly respected quartz movement for superior accuracy.
Aviation is something we take for granted, thinking nothing about circling the globe in flying metal tubes and meeting colleagues for lunch on a different continent. But the new Christopher Ward C8 UTC Worldtimer reminds us of the wonder of flying: linking the design of classic military aviation with the possibilities of modern jet travel in one ingenious, and very beautiful, watch.
