Tiens, Christopher Ward va sortir une nouvelle montre.
Il sort régulièrement des modèles différents, mais celle-ci me plait vraiment, la C700 Grand Rapide.

Personnellement j'adore le look, et j'adore le prix, elle pourrait venir en complément de ma C40 Speedhawk.
Le speech en Anglais tiré du site:
Driven by a desire to make the C700 one of the most affordable automatic chronographs on the Swiss watch grid, the C700 Grande Rapide certainly takes pole position. And there are no compromises. The C700 features a dramatic carbon fibre dial made from the same extraordinary material used in the aerospace industry, the military and Formula 1, and has been created for people who prefer to make the most of every second and observe their rivals in their rear-view mirror.
There is a choice of a stainless steel bracelet, a leather strap or a rubber strap, which mirrors the dial with its polished chequered design. The C700 has a 30 minute and 12 hour counter as well as a 60 second chronograph, which has a circular guilloche pattern at its heart and is inspired by a rev counter continuing in the the motorsport vein.
A crystal exhibition back provides a clear view of the engine, the elabore version of the Sellita SW500 automatic movement which is a mechanical work of art in itself.
Designed in Britain and hand assembled by the company's own atelier in Switzerland. Superluminova strips on the hands as well as the dial ensure theres never a need to be in the dark when it comes to managing time.
