It doesn’t really feel prefer it was all that way back that we had been going arms on with the Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern World Timer – however it was. Two years in the past, which looks like a lifetime in the past. Well, in that point, we additionally noticed the model enjoying with luminous materials through the C1 Moonglow. Well, what when you put these two in a blender? Then you’d have the just-announced Christopher Ward C1 Worldglow.
It could sound like slightly factor, however in my guide, making liberal use of glow on a dial can actually spark up my curiosity. Particularly for an current mannequin – at first look, it’s not that completely different. And then the lights go down… I imply, you’ll be able to see the pictures right here, and the video which we embedded down beneath.
I notably like how the GMT indication (the pink search beam in daylight) blocks out the glowing outer ring, providing you with a really clear – and nonetheless intelligent – indication of the place you might be within the 24-hour cycle that’s being tracked. Frankly, by making the map luminous, it offers it some goal on the dial. In the prior model, it was there as a design element, however it didn’t “do” a lot aside from point out it was a globe-trotting watch.
Now, nonetheless, with that brightly-glowing dial, the Christopher Ward C1 Worldglow offers us a welcome refreshing of the watch we first noticed a couple of years again. In reality, when you marvel when you would possibly prefer it, I’d counsel you learn our overview, as your expertise (glowing dials apart) will probably be largely the identical immediately.
