For a new watch design to celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2014 we looked to our first ever model for inspiration, the legendary C5 Malvern Automatic. We also took into account the many requests of Malvern owners over the years for a trimmed down version of their favourite wrist watch.
If the Malvern MK I made waves at its launch with the watch buying cognoscenti never having previously witnessed such quality and style at so accessible a price, this slimline version, as well as embodying the Christopher Ward values, is also set to stir the emotions of watch lovers who will recognise not only the quality of the componentry but also the architectural excellence of its form.
We worked with one of the watch industry's greatest designers to style a case that not only superbly houses the compact, hand-wound ETA 2801 mechanical movement but actually accentuates its slimness with some of the most beautifully subtle lines it is possible to imagine. The resulting wrist watch is 2mm wider at 40mm than the first automatic, has wider lugs at 20mm and, importantly, its height is 2.10mm lower at only 8.70mm. But mostly it is a gorgeous piece to wear and behold.
The fineness of the elongated indexes and hands add to the overall impressiveness of a watch which, as well as being a fitting way to celebrate our first decade, makes a confident nod towards an even more exciting future.
