That's quite something! Well done to all who helped realise the Bel Canto, it certainly shook up the watch world.

When Christopher Ward’s Bel Canto was nominated for Watch of the Year in the Petite Aiguille category, I thought that it was well deserved but figured that is far as it would go. Just being nominated was an incredible achievement but winning against long established, larger brands like Tudor would be a long shot. While Christopher Ward is no longer considered a micro brand, their competition was at the highest level of horology. With the win of the Bel Canto, notice has been served that Christopher Ward has arrived on the world stage of the watch world. While not all of us may buy the Bel Canto, the Twelve or Moonphase watches, there is no mistaking that they represent a transformational change & coming of age of the company that we are fans! Congratulations to all at Christopher Ward that have worked so hard to achieve this!

Fantastic achievement for CW, well done :clap:

Great for the brand and bringing in millions in deposits/advance sales, it has certainly been a commercial boost for the brand too :thumbup:
