It’s been five years since watch brand Christo­pher Ward de­vel­oped the first work­ing pro­to­type of their in- house move­ment, the Cal­i­bre SH21. To cel­e­brate, the watch brand are launch­ing a four- piece Apex range fo­cus­ing on mo­tor­ing, diver’s, dress and avi­a­tion watches. Taking pole po­si­tion is their mo­tor­sport watch, the C7 Apex Lim­ited Edi­tion. This 50- piece watch has a semi- open dial so you can see the work­ings of its engine — specif­i­cally, the Cal­i­bre SH21. The fu­tur­is­tic aes­thetic of the C7 Apex has seen the de­sign and tech­ni­cal team at Christo­pher Ward work­ing to­gether to plan the Apex’s func­tion as well as its form — pri­mar­ily, the eye- catch­ing red, skele­tonised bridge de­sign that’s a bold fea­ture of the watch. Co- founder Mike France says, “There has never been a Christo­pher Ward watch like this be­fore; and for the fifth an­niver­sary of the pro­to­type of our ground- break­ing in- house move­ment, that’s ex­actly what Cal­i­bre SH21 de­serves.”

The C7 Apex Lim­ited Edi­tion costs £ 2,995 and is avail­able to or­der from christo­pher­ward. co. ukNOVEMBER 2018
