Review: Christopher Ward Military Collection

As we covered back in September, Christopher Ward and the UK Ministry of Defence have teamed up to release a collection of officially licensed military watches, each based on a historic and collectible reference. There?s one watch for each branch of service in the UK?s MoD ? the Royal Navy, British Army, and Royal Air Force (RAF). The Navy watch is, naturally, a diver; the Army watch is a classically-styled field watch; and the Air Force variant draws inspiration from classic pilot?s watches.

Sandhurst, Cranwell, and Dartmouth.

While each piece in the collection is inspired by a classic military watch from the past, they are still very much their own Christopher Ward design. It?s not often that you see a watch brand team up with the armed forces of their nation in an official sense (it’s worth noting, however, that Bremont did something similar not too long ago), which is yet another reason the collection works so well. The Military Collection both looks and plays the part with a solid set of specs and durable construction to back them up. Let?s take a closer look at this appealing collection of military-inspired watches.


Review: Christopher Ward Military Collection

Stainless steel

Selitta SW-200

Black (Sandhurst and Cranwell); Blue (Dartmouth)



Stainless steel bracelet or leather strap

Water Resistance
150 meters


Lug Width




Shared Features
First, we?ll take a look at the common features shared amongst the collection. Each of the designs is housed in a 316L stainless steel case featuring Christopher Ward?s ?light-catcher? case design. Introduced in their C65 line, the light-catcher case is something special to look at and wear. They feature an impressive mix of brushed and polished surfaces that reflect light in a very dynamic way. Since there are a bunch of visual breaks along the case, these watches also appear to wear thinner. While I favored the 38mm case on the Sandhurst for myself, the case design really shines on the two other 41mm models. The proportions, for example, are a little bit better on the larger case, and in my experience I found it to wear flatter on the wrist.


This case is the opposite of slab-sided.

The finishing really pops, elevating the look and feel of the watch.

All three of the watches feature 150 meters of water resistance and an oversized push down crown at 3:00 on the right side of the case. On the caseback you?ll find a deep engraving of the insignia of the corresponding branch of the military that each watch represents. Protecting the dial, there?s a ?glass box? style sapphire. It reminds me of the vintage top hat style acrylic crystals that plateau above the bezel by a millimeter or two. It?s got al...
