Never seen this one before

Post by Bill Wilbury »

Hi guys, Hope you can help identify this Christopher Ward automatic. I came across it in an auction, not Ebay, but I cant find another anywhere.

Runs a ETA 2824-2 25 jewels also marked 09/3185

It is in a gilt kind of square tonneu case with exhibition back and gilt CW rotor.

Luminous gold hands and super smooth sweep seconds.

Hello and welcome. It's a C15 Henley Automatic. An early CW model (introduced 2008) not seen too often these days. Nice pickup.

As AVO says, a C15 Henly, one of CW's first watches.

Did you buy it or are you just curious?
