C65 Trident Bronze Ombré COSC
Individuality. As standard
How do you make an already distinctive watch unique? By using bronze in its construction, so it develops a patina over time, and subtly hand-distressing the dial for a beautiful aged look.
The C65 Trident Bronze Ombré COSC Limited Edition is a watch that’s both stylish and practical. First, the name. ‘Ombré’ means ‘shaded’ in French, something that makes perfect sense when you see the bronze dial’s colour transition from brass in the centre to a deep black varnish around the edge.
The case is similarly unique. Sized at 41mm – ideal for any size of wrist – the C5191 (CuSn6) bronze alloy used in its construction will develop to its own patina upon contact with the elements. And thanks to its subtle retro design and water resistance to 150m it’ll be the perfect companion, whether you’re swimming in the sea or presenting in the boardroom.
Sellita SW200 movement
Sellita SW200 Automatic Chronometer
Designed for those who demand the highest standards of timekeeping, this Swiss-made automatic movement has been officially designated as a ‘chronometer’ by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres.
This means it has a certified timing tolerance of just -4/+6 seconds per day in a variety of temperatures and positions, putting it in the top six percent of Swiss-made watches for accuracy.
The movement boasts a date wheel, a 4Hz frequency (equating to a smooth eight ticks per second) and a 38-hour power reserve. It also has an in-built anti-shock system to maintain accuracy when faced with any sudden jolts.
Black and bronze
When you bring a bronze case together with a black aluminium bezel, you’re already in the greats. Add a hand-distressed dial, and you’re looking at something very special indeed.
One of the critical markers for 1960s watches was a glass-box crystal. And with this proudly retro watch, we’ve brought it back: check that subtle curve as the crystal floats over the dial.
Bronze develops a patina – a natural discolouration – over time, which you’ll see as your watch ages. Giving it character, and making it truly yours.
Dial of glory
‘Ombré’ is the French word for ‘shaded’. Something you’ll notice in the hand-distressed dial as it transforms from light in the middle to dark around the edge.
Made of bronze, the light-catcher case feels so comfortable on the wrist, but also looks super-slim. It’s durable too: fully waterproof to 150m.
The materials that we use to make our watches are central to the quality, performance and appeal of our timepieces. It’s not something that’s often talked about in watchmaking, but without the right materials, you’ll never have the right watch.
