The C8 Regulator by Christopher Ward

August 2013


Christopher Ward presents two new vintage-styled regulators in stainless steel and PVD using the Unitas 6498 regulator movement.

It has a design that harks back to the period of the second world war, when such timepieces, in which the hour, minute and seconds indications are separated, were used for precision timing of things such as bombing raids.

Its vintage-style features include hands and hour markers whose SuperLuminova finish that recalls the look of radium that was used for luminescence at the time, as well as a distressed leather strap with a new folding clasp. The bold 44mm case makes a statement, while the transparent back is filled by the manually-wound Unitas 6498 movement.
