Christopher Ward – C9 Moonphase
Christopher Ward continues to grow its item range with its first watch including a moon stage complication, the C9 Moonphase.
Housed in a 40 mm x 13.3 mm tempered steel case offering water protection from 5 bar (around 50 meters), the new Caliber JJ04 (JJ from the initials of the expert watchmaker of Christopher Ward, Johannes Jahnke) depends on an adjusted ETA 2836-2 with the coordination of two extra stuff frameworks consolidating four wheels to drive the moon plate and a further two wheels for the setting component. The 4 Hz (28,800 vph) self-winding development ensures a force save of 38 hours.
The development of the enormous moon plate is smooth and persistent, in synchronize with the minutes and hours, making the portrayal of the moon’s stage exact at a specific second.
When accurately set, and expecting that the watch runs persistently, the presentation would just must be rectified by one day at regular intervals. The moon’s surface is 3D stepped and given a semi-matt galvanic completion.
While the upper portion of the middle dial is overwhelmed by the moon plate, the lower half is enriched with a guilloché theme by one way or another reminding the flowing examples. The one-piece metal dial is accessible in blue or silver, separately with nickel or PVD gold completion hands and lists.
The Christopher Ward C9 Moonphase can be coordinated to a Louisiana croc tie with organization catch or a steel wristband with costs beginning at Euro 1,750/US$ 1,780. christopherward.com
