C9 Harrison Auto

Post by schticy »

This is a great looking watch which has already been attracting comment at work. I love the way the dial changes from white to gold depending on the light. A definite favourite.

Picked up the less than half price alligator strap to replace the standard strap which just gives it a bit more of a substantial look. Here's a photo of the regular strap:

Beautiful partially decorated [edited] movement and this one looks to be an ETA:

Cracking photos - there is zero doubt that yours is an ETA!

Standard ETA 2824-2 but Incabloc shock protection. The rotor looks to be decorated and blued steel screws.Amazing value at 30% off!

Agreed, I still can't believe this was included in the sale! In the flesh it looks way more than even the normal price. The mix of different reflective surfaces on the dial, hands case etc, and the overall simplicity of it just looks beautiful - no other word for it.
Oh, and it's been keeping good time too - as if that mattered!!

Congratulations and excellent photos.

I believe this one will be a CWL staple because of the classic and simple look and will remain in the line a long time.

I have this one too and agree with all the comments!! It's a beautiful watch and I also think that the size of the case makes it standout that much more -- it's not just another classically designed watch.

I have the black and it is a smart watch. The silver dial for some reason sets my teeth on edge when I see it. No idea why. It does look like it has the texture and look of bare metal I don't like to touch. Odd I know. But for you a good catch well done

It's a great choice. Had it for a couple of months now but every time I look at it I'm still impressed. Recently tried it on an alligator strap:-

The alligator looks nice. Did you find the stock band and clasp comfortable?
