Christopher Ward C8 Mark II Pilot Vintage Swiss Automatic 44mm Blasted Steel
We take trades against any of our watches!!! We also buy watch packages!!
If you need a quick pilot watch fix and don’t want to shell out four digit amounts on an IWC or something like that, then Christopher Ward’s C8 Pilot collection is a good option. Their newest version offers that slick vintage look with a tan strap and tan lume that seems to go equally well with shorts and jeans. This isn’t a new watch per se as the C8 has been in Christopher Ward’s collection for a bit, but this new version is among the most appealing.
The case is sandblasted steel and 44mm wide. I would love to see them offer a PVD black version to offer more of that Bell & Ross Vintage 123 look that I find so very sexy. Yea, sexy. Perhaps CW will offer that in the future. The dial of the C8 Pilot Mark II Vintage has both Arabic hour numerals and hour markers. This makes for a very tool-like look and a high degree of legibility.
Note how Christopher Ward offers their own version of the pilot watch “onion” crown. It sorta of has that look while looking modern and neat. The tan leather strap is a necessary touch, but where are my beloved pilot watch strap rivets? (I added an nAdditional CW Brown leather strap WITH Rivets & deployment buckle! Really sets this watch apart from the rest!) The hand edges are ion contrast to the dial and help the hands stand out more, but still preserve that iconic pilot watch look. Another brand that does this pretty well is IWC.
Inside of the C8 Pilot Mark II Vintage is a Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement. One design feature that is pretty satisfying is the insertion of the case via a small, round window. Not only does CW properly use a black date disc, but the window does not interfere with the 3 o’clock hour indicator.
Just a gorgeous and extremely well made timepiece! Complete Set, additional strap and buckle, Swiss Automatic Movement & Sold Out!! These don’t come around for sale very often…especially in this condition, with the aditional Pilots strap/buckle & with all original paperwork!!
