Christopher Ward – C3 Malvern Chronograph Mk III
I have admired Christopher Ward watches from afar for sometime. Finally, I have been able to get my hands on one of their signature styles. If you are in the lookout for a classic watch with some contemporary detail this is a strong contender.
The C3 Malvern Chronograph definitely packs a punch, you would be first mistaken the watch is an Automatic but it is indeed a Quartz movement. The superior finishing and incredible detailing highlight the brands commitment to quality. I like the fact the design is inspired by sport cars and shows the brands long-held obsession with all things automotive.
I have been wearing the watch for review and what stands out is the striking blue hands and the off-white Champaign glow to the dial. I generally wear a metal strap for everyday wear, although this leather one feels robust enough to be an everyday watch.
Available in many different guises, the watch can be purchased through the brands website.
