Mmmmmmmmm, still something jars me about the C9 JH. Not necessarily the nameplate, or what's inside (excellent) but possibly the hour at 12 noon and the spiders web dial.... Can't quite decide what it is, but there is something awry to me

The main thing is that you love it and enjoy it - to be fair, I was beginning to wonder if any other members had one other than Kip

I also like it - wonderful concept watch and a pure timepiece.
My main reservation, still held after seeing the wrist shot, is that I would want a watch of this type to be a bit smaller. A 38mm version of that would have brought it into serious contention with the similarly priced Nomos I went for.

I think there is a challenge to selling a watch like this on the internet. Until you see it in the metal, in perspective to the surroundings, one's wrist and purely through one's eyes; it's not possible to gain a feel for what it looks like at all. I can vouch for this. As I loook at my JH now it does not look like the same watch as in the photo above. It sounds strange but this is the best way I can put it.

The guilloch-like finish (some call it spider-web) is incidental in real life but, as we know, in the close-up photos it screams out. In the real world the dial has a silvery sheen to it which seems Breguet-like to me. It looks nothing like this in the photos.

I believe this is a genuine issue for most unusual timepieces - time and again I look at photos but then, when I handle the same item (which I do a lot when I hang around in Harrods' watch room!) it is just so different. This can work both ways. I was intrigued by the Di Grisogono Meccanica DG (a mechanical digital watch!) so I went to look at it in the metal at Harrods. It looks fantastic in the videos and in photos but handling the watch I realised what a horrible monster it actually is, and how poorly those clever digits read. Not getting my £99,999 there (LOL).

I don't have particularly small wrists, just happen to prefer small watches! :D

Nope, not for me I am afraid. But you like it and that is all that matters!
