New Arrival...10/20/06...Photo Essay...better have broadband

Post by JoshK »

Greetings all. I just received my new Christopher Ward C3 Malvern Chronograph (C3SWS version) today, and wanted to share the experience with you all.

First, let me say what a pleasure it is to do business with Chris and his staff. Everyone I corresponded with went above and beyond to give me excellent customer service, and Chris is a true gentleman.

Ok...here we go... 8)

*Disclaimer* I would like to state right from the beginning that I am no photographer, and do not exactly have the greatest digital camera, so cut me some slack. :wink:

1. Package arrived to me today at my office in packaging so secure it took myself and three people to open the box!! Ok, maybe not that many, but this baby was wrapped up tight!

Image


2. Outside box was simple and elegant, (even though the corner was a little nicked up) Also came with a sealed envelope with my name on it.

Image


3. Inside the envelope, a personalized letter hand signed and stamped from Chris. Classy touch that I have yet to see from any of the other watches I have purchased at 10 times the price.

Image


4. Inside contents which include outer/inner boxes, letter from Chris, manual, cleaning cloth, C3 Malvern Chrono, and two extra straps (both with deployment, very inexpensive and a must add-on purchase in my book!!)

Image


5. Closed black inner box and extra straps.

Image


6. First glimpse at the C3 Malvern Chrono w/the extra straps.

Image


7. Close up face, fresh out of the box!!! It's bigger than I expected and as classy as I'd hoped it would look.

Image


8. Quick picture of the signed clasp. The mark you see is a reflection of the camera, as well as a reflection of my poor picture taking skills!!

Image


9. Back of the case, still haven't removed the plastic covering.

Image


10. Another picture of the face, just a hair brighter light than the previous face picture.

Image


11. Watch and straps together.

Image


12. Button side close-up.

Image


13. Other side close-up.

Image


14. Last but not least, one on the wrist. I had no idea that my arms were really that hairy. :oops: :wink:

Nice job Josh. I just posted on another thread a link to this same message which you also posted at TimeZone. I think most of the photos are awesome. Makes me think maybe I want the chrono after all.

Nice essay & watch!

I guess it'll look very great on the leather straps too!

Isn't there a Peregrine on the way, as well?
