Time on your side...
Your Christopher Ward watch has been designed and engineered by highly talented craftspeople to
ensure not only accurate and precise timekeeping but also to bring a real pride of ownership that
only luxury items of the highest quality can ever hope to deliver.
You have made an investment, a good one, and the aim of this handbook is to help you make the
most of that investment during what I hope will be a lifetime of ownership.

Caring for your Christopher Ward quartz watch
Your C7 Rapide Chronograph is constructed from the finest components and materials available
including one of Switzerland’s finest quartz movements.
As with all watches of this quality, with just a little care, it has the potential to become an heirloom
piece giving further joy to future generations.
Here are a few hints to help keep your watch working perfectly over the years:
• Although the battery in your watch may last longer, we recommend you have it changed every
2/3 years by a reputable watch repairer.
• At the same time as having the battery changed it makes sense to have the watch repairer clean
and lubricate your watch as necessary.
• Make sure the crown is screwed down fully before putting the watch into water. Adhere to
the water resistance ratings towards the end of the handbook to prevent water getting to the
movement which could result in a very costly repair or the need for a replacement movement.
• Your watch is shock resistant to minor impacts but dropping from height onto a hard surface
may damage the movement.
Should you need a replacement part - don’t worry, we keep stocks of spare parts for years, even for
discontinued models. It’s all part of the Christopher Ward service.
Finally, don’t forget our CW360° Care Programme allows you to return your watch absolutely free,
for any reason, and with no quibbles, for up to 60 days after purchase and we also guarantee your
movement for up to 60 months, so long as it is regularly serviced. After all, why shouldn’t you enjoy
peace of mind as much as you enjoy your watch?
Please note. Continuous use of the chronograph function will shorten battery life.

Please note:
The date can not be changed during the date changing phase
between 21.00 hr and 02.00 hr as the watch gearing will already
be aligning itself to change the date.
The crown should always be screwed in after adjustment, and
it is best to do so from position 3 to avoid advancing beyond
the desired date.

Using the tachymetric scale to calculate speed
Example: calculating the speed of a racecar over the course of a mile.
Record the time the racecar takes to cover a known distance of 1 mile.
Read off the speed on the tachymetric scale indicated by the central
seconds hand. In this case, the racecar is travelling at 98mph.

Fitting the bracelet
If you find the bracelet needs adjusting to your wrist we recommend you have it re-sized by a
reputable watch repairer or jeweller. Most local jewellers will either do this for free or perhaps make
a nominal charge for what is a job that should only take a few minutes. It is always best to be
present so a comfortable fit is achieved.
Establishing the length of the bracelet
Place the watch with its separated bracelet on your wrist and estimate the number of links you need
to remove. If you need to remove several links, try to keep the numbers removed from both halves
of the bracelet as equal as possible to ensure that the clasp remains roughly in the middle of your wrist.
Press
To open your bracelet simply press either side of
the clasp to release as shown.
The quick-release butterfly clasp
The strap versions of the C7 Rapide Chronograph use quick-release butterfly clasps. If you are
unfamiliar with the butterfly clasp system just follow our 8 step guide below.
Step 1 Locate the clasp
Step 2 Click quick-release
Step 3 Pull open clasp

Keeping in touch with Christopher Ward...
From small beginnings just a few short years ago (our first workshop was actually a refurbished
chicken shed!), Christopher Ward has won a worldwide following for his eponymous watch brand
and can justifiably claim to manufacture the most affordable luxury watches in the world.
For many, the philosophy behind the brand, trying to put luxury watches within the reach of
everyone, is as attractive as the watches themselves as is the very open approach of the business
which means that Chris and the team spend a lot of time communicating personally with our
customers - many of whom have become friends.
As the owner of a Christopher Ward watch, if ever you need to get hold of us we are at your service.
We have listed some useful contact details on the back cover.
There is also always something new going on at our website at www.christopherward.co.uk
and, if you haven’t already discovered the independent forum dedicated to our brand at
www.christopherwardforum.com we would recommend a visit. Informative and fun, it’s a great
place to hear the unexpurgated view of Christopher Ward of London!
