Iain’s Law: Any discussion on the Christopher Ward forum, irrespective of the thread title or subject matter, will eventually lead to someone mentioning the Bel Canto if the thread continues for long enough.

That's a really cool looking and interesting case shape :thumbup:

Watches aside, I still can't help but smile every time your forum name appears. I know ... complete child! :lol:

Thanks!
Its off my Draken. It has lume as well, which any Draken does to the absolute max! I love the case shape and finish, and the bezel is genuinely stunning imho.

The name is actually a nickname from a couple of years ago when we were out and the power of speech had been lost shall we say! It from my surname - Dykins. A couple of people have called me Richard in pm's and that made me smile! Easy done.

Same crown just for you sir...

A crowned crown!
The markings under the crown, on the crown, indicate the type of crown!

This one is different, as it is a Twinlock. The previous one I posted was a Triplock.
