Christopher Ward C11 Altus update

Just got more information about the C11 Altus watches.

The C11 Altus Automatic will be powered by either the ETA 2824-2 or the Selita SW200-1. Both the movements are great movements. The luminous material used on the hands and dial will be the SuperLuminova White. The interesting aspect of the watch is the use of what is called Museum quality crystal. I suspect this is a high grade crystal offering very good clarity. 

The C11 Altus Chronograph will be powered by a Ronda 5030.d chronograph movement. This is a 12 1/2 ligne quartz movement. It has 6 jewels. As with the C11 Altus automatic, the hands and dial on the C11 Altus Chronograph will also use the SuperLuminova White luminous coating. 

The interesting aspect of the watch is, from my understanding, the case back will be awesome. I don't have much details on this yet, but will bring more once I have more information.
