C65 Vintage Discontinued?

Post by mplb2018 » Fri May 03, 2019 4:44 pm

Hello All,

As of this morning it looks like the C65 Trident Vintage is no longer to be found on the Christopher Ward web site. Anyone have any info about whether it was discontinued?

To be clear I am talking about the 38mm, no-bezel automatic model. (Photo from cache on ChristopherWard.co.uk).

I haven't seen that on the site in weeks; definitely even longer than that. The C65 Diver really stole it's shine, and there will be a replacement coming up soon using the new diver's case. I always liked it but they've got a whole new line now.

Possibly related?
Exactly my thought as I read that other thread. It would be a logical move.

Ah ha! Great insight on your part.

Will keep my eyes open and fingers crossed for an announcement soon.

Thanks for the input, all.

They're relaunching it this June apparently, according to CW's Instagram.

Interesting. They didn’t mention anything about that in my conversations with them.
Do you have a link to the Instagram relaunch item?

Cheers. :thumbup:

I managed to find it.

Here is a link to the post (the comment itself is buried underneath but I don't think you can link to that specifically).

Does "relaunch" = restock, or indicate a new design?

Usually when something is discontinued it means a new design. :thumbup:
