Introducing The Worn & Wound X Christopher Ward Limited Edition C65 Sandstorm And Sandstorm Blackout
Several days into the virtual running of the 2020 Windup Watch Fair , the magnificent people at Worn & Wound have reported a spic and span restricted release cooperation with the British watch brand Christopher Ward. The subsequent watch is known as the C65 Sandstorm, and it is accessible in two unmistakable forms – the Sandstorm and Sandstorm Blackout (the last wearing a dark DLC case). Both depend on a similar 38mm case and offer a stunning interpretation of an area dial plan alongside an attractive and viable date show that surrounds the mid dial. The group at Worn & Wound are qualified fanatics of (and vital voices for) the multiplication of available and skilled games watches. This most recent LE is a smart steel chronometer that they are making in exceptionally short supply.
While I haven’t had a great deal of involved involvement in watches from Christopher Ward, they have a huge load of fan believability, and I believe it’s quite difficult to contend with the execution of the C65 Sandstorm and the Sandstorm Blackout. The two variants are basically a similar watch, however the tasteful is welcomely changed as neither one of the versions appears to lose the plot in spite of recounting a similar story in an alternate manner. The C65 Sandstorm is brilliant and somewhat Teutonic with its metallic dial, brushed completion (which sort of helps me to remember last-gen Aston Martin measures), and a welcome fly of shading from the markers, date show, and seconds hand. Then again, the Sandstorm Blackout is somewhat less genuine, with sand-shaded accents adding differentiation to the dark case treatment and warm red accents.
As referenced, both are 38mm wide with a thickness of 11.6mm and a carry to-drag of simply 43.6mm. Those wrist-accommodating extents are supported by a huge screw-down crown, 150 meters of water opposition, a sapphire gem, 20mm hauls, strong steel caseback, and a Sellita SW200 programmed movement.
COSC affirmed and ticking at 4 Hz, the SW200 is a dependable and regular prepared decision at this cost point, and Sandstorm separates itself with an outspread style date show that sits in a channel isolating the sandwich-style external dial from the area style inward dial. The date is set apart by a little red component showing against a 31-day measure encompassing the previously mentioned channel. This is a somewhat calm and fruitful method of actualizing a date, and I think the impact hoists the watch while offering something that feels, in any event from photographs, similar to a without date plan. To both Worn & Wound and Christopher Ward, pleasantly done, particularly as this date usage isn’t something Christopher Ward seems to offer on some other current model.
Those intrigued should move rapidly as there are just 300 C65 Sandstorms being made, with 200 in the steel appearance and only 100 of the Blackout spec. In spite of the really restricted organization, the valuing addresses a generally little knock over the standard from Christopher Ward, with the C65 Sandstorm accessible today for $1,085 on a material lash or $1,205 on a steel arm band. The C65 Sandstorm Blackout is accessible just on a material tie and expenses $1,130.
