One of the Most Elegant and Accurate Moonphase Watches in the World

English watchmaker Christopher Ward launches C9 Moonphase in time for a full moon on Christmas.

C9 Moonphase

This Christmas, the full December moon on Christmas night – ‘the Cold Moon’ in folklore – is the perfect symbol of giving.

With perfect timing for the full moon on Christmas Day, the latest launch from English watchmaker Christopher Ward, the C9 Moonphase, is one of the most elegant and accurate moonphase watches in the world. Powered by Calibre JJ04, an in-house movement developed by the company’s master watchmaker in Switzerland, this gorgeous timepiece is available in two color options – a classic blue dial and a white dial with gold detailing – with a range of strap and bracelet options perfectly sized to fit any wrist.

On most moonphase watches the moon ‘jumps’ once each day; Christopher Ward’s C9 Moonphase delivers a smooth andcontinuous movement of the moon disc, in sync with the minutes, giving a precise representation at every moment with astonishing accuracy – to within one day every 128 years of the base movement’s accuracy!

Launched last month, the C9 Moonphase has already attracted a series of awards and rave reviews, including the WatchPro Awards 2015 and  Bloomberg Business TV’s top 10 watches at Salon QP, the UK’s premier fine watch exhibition held in London.

The C9 Moonphase joins Christopher Ward’s portfolio of Swiss Made watches, all designed in England, with several collections for men and women, including a selection of Limited Edition models.

Current highlights for specialist collectors include:


  • The Aviation Collection’s C8 P7350 Chronometer – a special edition of just 75 – incorporating a fragment of metal from the last airworthy Spitfire to have actually fought in the Battle of Britain.

  • In the Motoring Collection the C9 GT40 edition of 40 watches carries a backplate disc cut from the wheel spinner of one of motor racing’s most legendary cars, GT40 #P-1075, double winner at Le Mans (1968-69).

  • For Sports/Dive fans there’s the iconic Trident Collection, with over 250 combinations of size, movement and color options to create your perfect personalized watch.
