Editor’s Note: Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) and Baselworld 2020 are canceled but that hasn’t stopped watch brands large and small from debuting their new wares. To stay on top of this year’s best new watch releases, visit our tag page.

British watchmaker Christopher Ward has been playing the direct-to-consumer, value-for-money indie brand game longer than most. Their range now includes everything from dive watches to racing chronographs, but their newest model combines two highly practical and popular features. The new C65 GMT Worldtimer watch looks strong with its retro-inspired design and the world time and GMT functions come together for a handsome and value-driven watch.

The ability to track another time zone isn’t just for travelers anymore, as many people now communicate regularly across timezones. The GMT hand tracks a second time zone in 24-hour format, while a rotating world time bezel allows the user to quickly reference multiple other time zones at a glance. That’s a lotta time zones.

Housed in a 41mm steel case, the C65 GMT Worldtimer has a conservative 1960s feel that’s brightened up by pops of yellow for the GMT arrow hand (in reference to a certain famed model by Rolex, no doubt…) and on the dial for marking daytime on the 24-hour scale. A “glass box” sapphire crystal adds to the vintage theme. Keeping the time and providing the GMT functionality is the Swiss Sellita SW 330 automatic movement.

Available with three different strap options or on a steel bracelet, prices for the Christopher Ward C65 GMT Worldtimer start at $1,140 and go up to $1,250 on bracelet.
