First CW: C9 Harrison Auto

Post by Mojojoejoe »

So my Christopher Ward arrived yesterday and I am extremely pleased. It is actually nearly new, but looks brand new to me. Anyway, here are a couple of pics. Only done with phone so not great quality but you get the idea:

It looks quite big on my wrist there (my wrists are quite skinny), but looks fine in real life. I was a bit unsure about the black strap at first but I actually really like it.

Overall, top marks to Christopher Ward. Love the watch and will definitely be coming back to them in the future. This was my first proper watch so will definitely be wearing it regularly. Very, very pleased. :D

Great looking watch,has a nice clean look about it.Out of interest do you know what size your wrists measure?I also have skinny wrists and due to this try to avoid anything bigger than 42mm though my old C70 DBR1 fitted me ok.
