Introducing the Christopher Ward C63 Valour

The latest addition to the British brand’s Ministry of Defence-approved Military collection is the first watch dedicated to all three branches of His Majesty’s Armed Forces, featuring a chronograph complication and chronometer accuracy.


he first chronograph of 2024 and a re-introduction of quartz technology into the Christopher Ward line-up, the C63 Valour is powered by the thermo-compensated ETA Calibre G10.212i, featuring a split timing function and chronometer accuracy of +/- 10 seconds per year.

Crafted meticulously in stainless steel, the 39mm Light-catcherTM case features all the curves and facets expected from the Sealander collection, paired with a slender case height of 11.55mm.

The dial features a reverse-panda colour scheme, reminiscent of 1960s sports chronographs, with each subdial hand colour-coded to represent each branch of the Armed Forces: red for the Army, dark blue for the Navy, and light blue for the RAF.

Will Brackfield, Designer, said: “When coming up with plans for the Valour, we drew inspiration from the British Military quartz watches of the 1980s, with applied and polished numerals, as well as our ’twin flags’ logo, for added depth and legibility.”

Brackfield added: “On the case back, you’ll find the heraldic crests of the Army, Navy, and RAF, each adorned with the Queen’s crown, which we included as a mark of respect to Queen Elizabeth II.”
