Aviation

Aviation has long been a mainstay of watchmaking. This should be no surprise as the first wristwatch – the Cartier Santos – was made especially for pilot Alberto Santos Dumont in 1904. Since then, the likes of Breitling and IWC, have brought pilot-specific watches into the mainstream.

  • C8 Power Reserve Chronometer

    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.

  • C8 UTC Worldtimer

    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.

  • C8 Flyer Automatic

    Influenced by the design of the Smith Mark II clocks found in Spitfire cockpits, it’s a timepiece for those who want to wear a little history. Available as in 38mm and 44mm sizes, it’ll suit every wrist, while the deep-stamped back-plate – showing the wind tunnels at Farnborough – keeps the aviation theme strong. But even if you’re not a WWII obsessive, the beautiful dial is a minimalist delight: and you don’t have to be a pilot to love it.

  • C8 Flyer Quartz

    The dial is inspired by the clock of the WWII Supermarine Spitfire and the back-plate by the incredible Farnborough wind tunnels, making this the perfect gift for any aviation lover. And thanks to the Swiss-made Ronda 715 quartz movement it’s both super-accurate and incredible value.

  • C1000 Typhoon Cockpit Edition

    The Typhoon FGR4 multi-role fighter plane is one of the most advanced pieces of engineering in the world. Designed to be fast and nimble, it also packs a significant payload which can be delivered with astonishing accuracy. A watch that celebrates it needs to echo this technical excellence and the C1000 does that in spades, combining both a remarkably strong yet light case of ceramic and titanium, with one of the world's greatest chronograph movements, the ETA Valjoux 7750.

  • C1000 Typhoon FGR4

    Influenced by the Typhoon FGR4, this is CW’s most technically advanced aviation watch. Powered by ETA’s 7750 movement, the watch is made of a near-indestructible ceramic (seven times stronger than steel), strengthened with a titanium sub-frame. With subdials influenced by the Typhoon’s after-burners and numerals based on the plane’s heads-up display (HUD), this is a watch absolutely in tune with modern aviation.
