I went to the Post Office this morning to pick up my Red JAG. I'll put additional pictures and an initial impression post when I get home tonight, but here is a quick and dirty wrister.

Oh my that's nice, I cannot wait until mine arrives.

I just returned from the jewellers where I had my just arrived Hirsch Knight in black mounted. I think it looks very good. I won't be selling the steel bracelet to give me future options. The bezel lines up perfectly and any appearance to the contrary is merely down to camera/watch angle.

After the bracelet Lawrence that is the best looking combo I've seen. Really nice.
Who started the Black Knight idea anyway? Ahh - bashomatsuo it seems.

Yes, it was Bashomatsuo who posted a picture and identified the strap; I followed in his footsteps.

Agree cunham32, the C5 is really a stunning looking piece, and I do encourage you to consider collecting one. Mine is one of the older versions with sunken dial with the outer in white, which unfortunately is no longer available in the current line-up, and the closest would be the one piece cream "Galvanic" dial in silver case (which I am sure look awesome too). I've got mine second hand after posting a WTB post for a while. :)

Hi prop, I have the usual thinny Asian wrist at 6.75 inch, so it does wear bigger (comparing to other members here) on mine especially in photos, in reality it looks more like this:

yeah, the watch looks totally different on this picture, ie. just bully! Its more than OK now. My heart beats quicker looking at it :shock:

I generally came a cross Chris watches recently and thinking of one for myself. Now I'm getting familiar with the collection.
