Well that's depressing news with him there could make a difference. On the flip side though I suppose Christopher ward don't have millions to throw at a far out idea so maybe Sellita is less limiting I just hope big business attitude profits first, doesn't throttle him.

Not to worry, there's still plenty of talent. Good stuff coming down the line. :rollsmile:

I would certainly like to see an evolved C8 PR with a dial more towards the C7 Apex, in a bronze case, with an automatic movement.

That watch, I would buy.

I saw in the 'CWL of the day' thread a white bezel, black dial, Trident. The dial appeared blue in the photo.

A Trident Mk III with a white bezel and that polished blue dial would look superb.

Wow, great suggestions from everyone! How about a 40mm antimagnetic piece with Faraday cage?

Having visited CW Towers last week, prepared to get myself one of the new Mk 3 Tridents, I realised I do prefer domed glass on a watch, as opposed to flat glass. Which is why I left with a very nice bracelet (thank you Declan) for my C65 Trident Diver as opposed to a new watch.

And this got me thinking (again) about what would be my perfect CW. I think a watch with the case, bezel and domed glass of the C65 Diver or Automatic, but with the face and hands of the new C60 Trident Pro would look epic. Any, it's just a thought. Carry on.

Just one of those mkIII GMTs in 40mm please :wave:
With a blue dial, orange GMT and "Orange Pepsi" bezel (Orange/Blue).

I made up the bezel, I think, but why not?? :lol:
Actually I thought of an addition to this one with the "Irn Bru" bezel...

An in-house movement that features independently adjustable hour hands like the Rolex Master &c.

I know, dream on...:roll:

I'd like a C60 count down timer chrono.

S/s with dark blue face, and ivory ceramic bezel.

A CW yachting timer. Call it the CW Endeavour.
There's always time for one more.

Would love to see a Christopher Ward take on a trench watch. Round or cushion case, sub-seconds, brush script number hour indicators, no date, etc.

What’s a trench watch?

Andrew, I did this post about 5 years ago.

viewtopic.php?f=63&t=23987

I had also thought about CW making a trench watch and I entered one based on a Longines design for the 2015 FLE.

However, I am now convinced that the design language of these very old watches is not best suited to the modern idiom and modern sizes.

CW have produced, to date, a couple of fine watches with TM-B Art Metal additions from notable Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane WW2 aircraft.

How about something similar for an Avro Lancaster, perhaps one of the Dambuster aircraft, and rather than being a regular three hand watch use a bicompax Chrono movement?

Lufbery watches from Surrey have a decent looking ‘Trench Watch’ on Kickstarter at the moment. Decent looking enough, looks to have a lot of inspiration from the Zenith Pilot though.

I’d love to see a trident C60 with either a green bezel and black dial or an all green set up.
