How do you view the effect of Brexit on the luxury watch market and in particular CWL sales?

We have already seen a change in exchange rates making non sterling purchases cheaper. Have you seen a corresponding increase in overseas sales?

+1 if you mean something similar to a Rolex explorer but not a homage to it

Is CW considering to produce an automatic variant of the C8 Power Reserve?

Are there any plans to go beyond basic quartz movements and offer high-accuracy quartz, sweeping hands, solar charging and atomic clock synching? It appears there may be a market for a high quality watch case, bezel, dial and crystal like the C60 Pro 600 with interesting quartz technology. And offer it at the same price as the C60 automatic, instead of a cheaper and lower-end version like the C60 300.

+1 and with SH21

Add question
Only 3 collections have SH21. Any roadmap for SH21 for Motorsport collection? Something like C70 case with sh21

Couple of questions....
What happened to the Christopher Ward Master Series? Did plans change or are they still being pondered?
Will there be a generally available homage to the CW Morgan Aero 8 Chronometer? This is one of the best looking watches CW have produced of late and I'd love to own something similar but I'm not going to buy a Morgan car to get one.

Would you consider say £20 upgrade for this?

Do Cw have any plans to collaborate with any other watch brands to help develop the SH21, or new movement. Along the same lines as the Tudor and Breitling deal.
Are there any plans for an in-house super quartz ?

Has there been any progress made on an orange ceramic bezel for the 600, or is it dead in the water?
