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.

He 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."
Pre-lockdown Duncan was widely regarded as the best-dressed man ever to work for T3 – admittedly not saying much. Post-lockdown he is looking forward to wearing clothes other than shorts and hoodies again very soon, assuming he can still fit into them. He currently writes about cycling, fitness tech that isn’t too heavy, and all things kitchen and home related.
