Customer Requested - Christopher Ward Delivered

The Christopher Ward Twelve 36 Alta Gold is a remarkable timepiece that emerged in response to customer requests for a 'classic' Twelve 36 with the distinctive rose gold bezel of The Twelve Halo. This new addition combines the elegance of the original Twelve with the captivating rose gold bezel, resulting in what could be considered the most elegant Twelve watch to date.

The standout feature of the Alta Gold is its polished rose gold bezel, which creates a mesmerizing contrast with the minimalist design of The Twelve. The bezel's multi-angled design not only adds a touch of luxury but also plays with light in a captivating way, enhancing the overall aesthetic of the watch.

The textured dial, a signature element of the original Twelve, is retained in the Alta Gold. However, unlike its predecessor, the Alta Gold does not have a date window. Instead, the focus is on clarity and space, exemplified by the slimmer indexes that gracefully rest on the shimmering bezel. The handset is deep-filled with luminescent material, ensuring practicality and sophistication, especially for timekeeping in low-light conditions. The applied 'twin-flags' logo contributes to the watch's depth and visual appeal.
