Discreet. Rugged. And so easy to read. The first Christopher Ward watch authorised to carry the heraldic badge of the British Army, the C65 Sandhurst is also our first real foray into the ‘field watch’ genre. And with a Swiss-made automatic chronometer inside, it may just be one of the most accurate, too.

Produced in conjunction with the Ministry of Defence, the C65 Sandhurst not only bears the insignia of the British Army, it also pays tribute to one of the great military watches of the past: the Smiths W10. Issued to soldiers in 1969, the W10 was known for its design and legibility. The C65 Sandhurst follows the same path.

Using a textured black dial as its foundation, Arabic numerals printed with white TC-1 Super-LumiNova® sit within a printed outer white minute track. Meanwhile, Old Radium Super-LumiNova® is applied to rectangular indexes located at each quarter-hour, along with five minute-positioned dots and an additional triangle at 12 o’clock. The result is a timepiece that can be read at a glance in even the gloomiest of conditions.

Turn it over, and you’ll see the heraldic badge of the British Army, deep-stamped into the back. And for a watch that could face action at a moment’s notice, the Sandhurst’s 150m water resistance may just come in useful, too.

Designed for those who demand the highest standards of timekeeping, this Swiss-made automatic movement has been officially designated as a ‘chronometer’ by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres. This means it has a certified timing tolerance of just -4/+6 seconds per day in a variety of temperatures and positions, putting it in the top six percent of Swiss-made watches for accuracy.

The movement boasts a date wheel, a 4Hz frequency (equating to a smooth eight ticks per second) and a 38-hour power reserve. It also has an in-built anti-shock system to maintain accuracy when faced with any sudden jolts. 


Just a gorgeous and extremely well made timepiece! Complete Set, additional strap & 5 year movement warranty!
