The more and more I look at the JH, the less I'm bothered by the "Spider Web" dial pattern. A couple of people have said that it's more subtle in the metal, so I'll take their word on that. I still can't get by the tacky looking name plate though. I think a CW emblem under the hour marker would have looked much nicer if maybe not as balanced.

Good to see it getting some love on Hodinkee all the same.

Hour window should have been at the "9" position. So when the darn thing jumps you can see it. :thumbdown: :shock:

Looks v classy and elegant for a 'big' watch given that I dont usually like anything above 40mm. Very nice overall but not a fan of the badge....think it could of been designed to appear more seamless on the watch face.

How much of a modification (i.e. how "in house") is CW doing to this movement?

Check out the web site and it will tell you.
The watch, which has one hand and an hour 'window' was designed in collaboration with our partner, the German watchmaking 'wunderkind' Johannes Jahnke. Johannes has ingeniously created a completely original and unique adaption of the ETA 2824-2 calibre movement to achieve a consistent amount of power transition across the hour for greater accuracy.

Furthermore, the quality of every component is quite superb including the luxurious Louisiana alligator strap that comes as standard. Only 200 C9 Jumping Hour timepieces will ever be produced and each one will be assembled personally by Johannes and will be received by the fortunate owner with a signed letter of authenticity from the watchmaker. Let there be no doubt this is a very special watch.
