Christopher Ward C1 Moonglow
The C1 Moonglow is Christopher Ward’s own tribute to the 50th Moon Landing Anniversary. It is an elegant timepiece that showcases the stunning beauty of the lunar landscape. It does not only create a fascinating silhouette of Earth’s stellar neighbor. The C1 also lets its moon phase glow.
Featuring Ward’s very own Caliber JJ04 automatic movement, the C1 Moonglow boasts of the ETA 2836 as its foundation. Ward engineered the precision movement to have a timing tolerance of about minus-10 to plus-20 seconds every day. It comes with a 38-hour power reserve and a 28,800vph operating frequency.
The C1 comes fitted with a lunar module that’s made more remarkable by the integration of a peripheral date indicator. This results in an ultra-modern, sophisticated, and engaging dial. It blends flashes of color contrasts and stunning 3D elements to make the C1 as iconic as possible. The moons, indices, numerals, outer date ring, and clock hands come with SuperLuminova Grade X1 GL C1. The polished indices provide a remarkable foreground to the Moonglow’s smoked dial.
It is surprising to note that the Moonglow opted for a slim profile instead of a bulkier and heftier stance. It has a lug width of only 48.55 mm and a 12.35-mm height. At 2.15 ounces, the C1 is light and very pleasing to wear. It has a water-resistance rating of 98 feet. However, it’s not a dive watch, one should never take a dip with this timepiece on the wrist.
There’s a choice of stainless-steel mesh bracelet or a 20-mm leather strap. For most folks, leather is the perfect accompaniment to the style of the C1. However, the stainless-steel bracelet doesn’t disappoint either.
The Christopher Ward C1 Moonglow is a very interesting timepiece that acknowledges man’s triumph in space. It has some unique features that make it a great piece in formal gatherings.
