  • Summer Sale - ends midnight Saturday


    Exclusive 2 Day Sale Preview


    The Christopher Ward Summer Sale is now open exclusively to our loyal customers who can enjoy savings of up to Half Price on watches and more than 50% on a wide selection of premium quality straps and bracelets.


    The sale is opened to the public on Wednesday 10th July.
    Rare vintage: the new C9 AM GT


    Following the success of 2016’s C9 DB4 ‘1 VEV’, a watch that contained a piece of Zagato ‘1 VEV’, the new C9 AM GT represents the perfect opportunity for those who loved the original’s design but didn’t require said piece of legendary sports car in its backplate. Limited to 135 pieces, it marks the final appearance of both our C9 case design and remaining ETA Valgranges A07.161 movements.


    Released as part of our July event, the C9 AM GT will only be available at an exclusive sale price, allowing customers the satisfaction of knowing they’ve made a 40% saving against its originally planned selling price. The C9 AM GT: a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it opportunity to secure a vintage-themed automatic watch with power reserve complication for even better value.

    If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher.
    As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide".

    Summer Sale











    C9 AM GT Limited Edition
    Vintage Oak Leather - Preorder for mid July
    Limited to just 135 pieces, the C9 AM GT isn't just a watch that evokes an era when cars were as beautiful as they were potentially jeopardous; it also marks the final appearance of our C9 case. A Zagato dashboard-influenced dial and power reserve indicator mean the C9 offers vintage motorsport charms at an excellent price. $855.00


    • Description

      Motorsport has always been a crucial part of Christopher Ward's DNA.

      It seemed appropriate, then, that when the final few of our retired C9 cases became available, they'd be used to revive an automotive design previously only available to a very select few.

      For those who missed out on 2016's C9 DB4 '1 VEV', a 19-piece limited edition that incorporated metal of historical provenance into its backplate, the new C9 AM GT features many of the same design cues; yet without a segment of a Zagato body panel inside, you can enjoy the same rev counter-inspired power reserve indicator, speedometer-influenced numerals and inclined outer dial ring at just a fraction of the original's price.

      A 135-piece limited edition that also marks a goodbye to our C9 case, we expect the C9 AM GT to fly off the starting grid!

      From ETA's Valgranges Series (the 'Valgranges' indicates its relationship to the Valjoux 7750, also manufactured in Gretchen = 'granges'), the AO7 is a self-winding calibre with unidirectional winding and central-hacking seconds. It's also got a power reserve of 48 hours which is indicated on the dial, and comes courtesy of some clever decoupling that releases tension from the mainspring.

                      Hey Paul, I'm just curious how you're finding this? When you check out are you getting the amount in USD cause when I go to the site it's roughly 486 pounds which is over $600 at the current conversion rate. I must be doing something wrong. lol

                          Darkoverlord, what rw said. Cart it and once you select shipping to the US the VAT drops off. PayPal will charge a conversion rate, I think 3 point something percent. Better to use your bank or credit card that doesn't charge.

                              YW. I answered because Paul wasn't around and the CW sale inventory vanishes like Houdini. If you have your eye on something you need to be fast.
