A timepiece forged from steel and carbon that’s built for the toughest of conditions – the C60 Lympstone is a fitting tribute to the Royal Marines. Approved by the Ministry of Defence, the watch is water-resistant to 600m and delivers unrivalled accuracy courtesy of its certified-chronometer movement. And should you find yourself in uncharted territory, the inner-compass bezel will see you safely back to base.
Inspired by the brave. Engineered by the best
Named after the Royal Marines’ Commando Training Centre at Lympstone in Devon, the feature-packed C60 Lympstone brings together elite Swiss watchmaking with a build quality that ensures it can survive the harshest of conditions. At sea. Or on land.
Take the ultra-tough, ultra-light forged carbon dial. Made from chopped carbon fibres infused with resin (there are around 500,000 fibres per square inch), forged carbon has a uniquely unfinished look, with the dark and light greys contrasting beautifully. Around the dial is a first for Christopher Ward: a rotating inner-compass bezel which lets you orientate yourself using the sun.
Surrounding the dial is a brushed ceramic bezel, its numerals deep-filled with Super-LumiNova® Grade X1 GL C1 – a sign that the C60 Lympstone is not just a watch, but a professional diving instrument. And with water-resistance to 600m, you can be sure it won’t let you down – no matter how far you descend.
Turn the watch over and you’ll see the insignia of the Royal Marines laser-engraved into the caseback. Only when the Ministry of Defence had approved every element of the watch were we able to feature it.
When you’re dealing with split-seconds that can mean life or death, accuracy really is everything. That’s why the C60 Lympstone is powered by a COSC-certified version of the Sellita SW200 calibre, putting it in the top six percent of Swiss movements for accuracy.
