London watch expo is over, and we didn’t have a chance to attend it. Nevertheless, let’s check something new from British watchmaker – Christopher Ward C60 Trident Bronze Pro 600. This is a fresh diver watch with bronze case (surprise!!!). I have to say that it looks cool, but let’s check it closer.
By the way, here you can read review with another diver watch.

So what we get this time? Of course, bronze case comes in nice natural color. Moreover, should I remind that with time you will get even better appearance. Patina is a key word here, and bronze diver with such addition should look truly cool. Nevertheless, I saw some examples of crazy green patina, so here it would be interesting to see what owners will have as a result. As you can guess, there is only one colour option for case. Well, dial is not different and can be in whatever colour you would like as long as it is matte marine blue. I don’t have anything against such combo, it looks truly elegant. This color match can be even suitable with some nice shirt and simple suit. Of course, final decision is left to you.
Note that indices have patina imitation too. Each comes with Old Radium Superluminova covering for even more vintage look. On some photos traditional trident seconds hand looks like weathered too. Nevertheless, I think it’s only photos, and in reality it has normal brushed finish. There is no paint on bezel, only raised indices, so nothing breaks nice bronze color. Luminous dot can be found only at 12 mark – quite neat touch.
Don’t get sad, there is one thing you can choose – strap type. Nevertheless, don’t get too happy too, because there are only two colors available. Well, nobody stops you from choosing nato or zulu for this model. I also wonder if anybody produces bronze mesh, which would look cool with such diver watch.
Inside there is Selita SW 200-1 automatic movement with 38 hours power reserve. Well, not a top movement, but not bad for such price. Of course, you get all basic functions like seconds hacking and anti-shock. Don’t expect to see it through rear cover, because backplate is full metal part.
Straightaway I would say Christopher Ward C60 Trident Bronze Pro 600 costs 800 GBP. While its name is quite long a difficult to remember, I think appearance would make up for it. Just think – elegant bronze diver with 600m water resistance for such money! Moreover, it can be good choice both for desk-diving as well as tool watch, which would look even better with time passing by. I said it before, and can repeat it again – at least one bronze watch should be in every watch fanatic’s collection. Patina shows how relative time is and will remind you how many days passed until you got such patina…
