.....and JJ01 makes 4

Post by Richard D »

I’m delighted to have added this unusual Jumping Hour to my collection of JJs. All unique designs, fascinating complications and definitely conversation pieces.

An excellent collection within a collection.

If you were to collect a single-pusher, single-hander, world-timer and moonphase from ANY other brand, your outlay would have been far, far higher. You have to hand it to CW... for a small company to produce such a variety of complications is really a feather in their cap - and yours for collecting them.

Indeed, to design and make distinctive watches at a great price point is a huge achievement. I’ve never been disappointed in the end product.

As for a feather in my cap, it’s more by luck than by design as to how my collections have evolved.

I agree!

That's one fine quartet, Sir. :thumbup:

Congratulations on a wonderful sub-collection. I love the fact that, whilst being so different, they still look like siblings!

Very nice.

Shame he left the company.
How about adding the one with the first in house movement, the C9 5 Day ?
Or are you JJ'd out for now ?

It really is a fabulous collection of JJ complications Richard, highly envious !
Still remember the time I saw your World Timer, it left a big impression on me.
