I liked Chr WARD and I like it even more with "London" underneath. Just the job in my humble opinion.

Be grateful it has not got "Liverpool" under it....it would be knocked off ! :D

To any one outside of Blighty "London" is the UK ....The 2nd greatest city on earth....The best for me would be Hong kong....but HK under the logo would make every watch 99p

"london" does give it a certain kind of class, a little like "New York, London, Peckham"

Can somebody explain why it is desirable to have the word London on a watch/clock?

The place is difficult and time consuming to get in and out of, smells of exhaust fumes, they charge you £5 a day just for using their roads, everything is more expensive than it should be, and there seems to be a lack of friendliness there!! :thumbdown:

Just my opinion, of course, but in no way for me does having the word 'London' back on a Christopher Ward watch make them any more attractive or desirable.

Thought it was £8 a day now?

Because, London is the centre of the entire known universe! The hub of the financial institutions, the big Metropolis, home of Carnaby Street and all things stylish and bold. Also, the home of cosmetic surgery where you can enlarge your chest as you deplete your wallet, Bond Street where you can find all things sartorial and horological. In short, London is just a wonderful place and anyone would be proud to have the name on their watch.

Strangely, the further you are away from the ****, the more appealing :lol:

Nice one! Good of them to put it up by 60% (I'm sure Mars Bars haven't gone up that much in the same space of time?). Nice to meet a fellow 'fan'.

London clocks are the most collectable because of the association of London with the best clockmakers that have lived - Harrison, Mudge, Knibb etc. All other clocks made outside London eventually followed the fashions pioneered by these makers - but rarely matched the craftsmanship or quality. I'd recommend a visit to the clock exhibition at the British Museum, or even better, to the small museum at the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers in Guildhall, in London of course. Both are free and both are a feast, especially the latter.
Four CWs and too many others to list!
And loads of clocks.
And bicycles.

Certain places are indeed synonymous with certain things, e.g.

Sheffield - Steel
Nottingham - Lacemaking
Stafforshire - Pottery
Glasgow - Kiss :lol:


& London - Watches / Clocks.

+1 to all that.
At the risk of repeating an earlier post, I spent a good couple of hours in the Clockmakers' Museum on a Saturday a few weeks ago, and had the place to myself for the first hour!
I went in at 11.50 and so was there when all the clocks began striking midday - just wonderful! :thumbup:
