A few months ago, Christopher Ward released the C1 Moonphase, a beautiful watch that garnered mixed reactions from enthusiasts. Some appreciated its aesthetics, while others expressed concerns about its size, lack of indices, and price.
In response to these criticisms, Christopher Ward has introduced the C63 Celest, a new aventurine watch that addresses all three points.
Design and Features
The C63 Celest features a 36mm Light-catcher case, making it more wearable than the C1 Moonphase. It also boasts polished, beveled indices, enhancing legibility. The watch is powered by a Swiss automatic Sellita SW200-1 movement with a 38-hour power reserve.
Water Resistance and Versatility
The C63 Celest is water-resistant to 150 meters, making it suitable for various activities. It comes with two strap options: a 5-link Consort bracelet or a blue leather strap, both with quick-release tabs.
Aventurine Dial and Sporty Elegance
The C63 Celest's aventurine dial is a highlight, featuring a sparkling effect reminiscent of a star-studded night sky. The sporty hands and case provide a unique contrast to the elegant dial.
The Christopher Ward C63 Celest is priced at $960 USD on leather and $1,160 USD on bracelet.
The C63 Celest is a well-executed timepiece that addresses the concerns raised about the C1 Moonphase. It offers a sporty elegance that is sure to appeal to a wider audience.
