Christopher Ward issues one of its best watches in a limited edition yellow face

C60 Trident 316L diving watch goes for gold with marine-grade steel, a big yellow face and 15% off the price for this weekend only

Christopher Ward C60 Trident 316L Yellow

The sun has got his hat on, and he's putting in an appearance on a new Christopher Ward C60 Trident watch face. As the old song goes.

Christopher Ward welcomes summer by putting its C60 Trident diving watch - it’s like a Rolex but for under a grand - in a pleasing, 'unidirectional brushed' 316L marine-grade steel 'encasement' (or 'case' if you're common), with a faintly outrageous, bright yellow face. The 316L Yellow follows the sell-out success of the blue and orange limited editions of the UK brand's big-selling diver's watch.

It has a 43mm case (51.5mm lug to lug), so one for fans of the chunkier wrist piece. As usual, the C60 316L is a Brit-designed, Swiss-made automatic, so you can say goodbye to hand-winding wrist soreness misery. It has a 26-jewel self-winding mechanical movement with 38-hour power reserve.

With an anti-shock system and screw-in crown, it's water resistant to 600m or 60ATM – a remarkable depth for a watch of this price.

The C60 Trident 316L Yellow comes with a leather, rubber, or NATO strap, or a steel bracelet 

The 3.4mm anti-reflective sapphire crystal protects the matt yellow face, which bears a SuperLuminova dial, indexes and hands. There's a date window and the 'hacking' second hand – meaning that when you pull the crown out, it moves the second hand to zero for easier adjustment – is adorned with Ward's 'Signature Trident' counter-balance. 

Christopher Ward obviously has a lot of faith in the weather remaining sunny, as there are just 316 of these available. A unique, engraved serial number tells you which one it is.

• Pricing is £710 on a NATO strap, £730 on a leather or rubber strap, or £795 on a steel bracelet. This weekend, get 15% off on this and all other Trident watches by using code SUN15 at checkout.

Duncan Bell

Duncan is the former lifestyle editor of T3 and has been writing about tech for almost 15 years. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. His current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
