You appear to have done it using the attachment feature. Thank you – the watch looks superb!

That's looks great! So many different design elements on the dial. The lume on the moon paired with the smoked glass cutout are my favourite parts of it.

Thanks for sharing your photos of it.

It has some good looking aspects but unfortunately I can't get past being able to see the second moon so clearly. The smoked dial needs to be darker in my opinion, although of course this would lessen the impact of all that lume but I would see that as a good thing.

A rather marmite piece, I suspect. Not for me, personally, but I respect the intent.

Mine showed up yesterday and I absolutely love it! I think it looks even better in person.

Looks great. Congrats.
I'm deciding my first CW watch: Either C1 Moonglow or C60 Trident 316L Yellow LE.

I really like a lot of elements on this watch such as the date and the dial and it is certainly the best looking moon phase done to date by CW.

However, two things I don’t like. Firstly I don’t like seeing two moons. It’s confusing and the back...why have an exhibition back if you are putting in a vanilla movement with use a rotor change/decoration! It would just remind me that the movement was done cheaply in an expensive watch! CW can do so much better or make the corner cutting less obvious!

Is there any chance they'll be a non-transparent version released? That's the only deal breaker for me, for otherwise a perfect watch! I have always wanted a moonphase watch with a LARGE moon face, and the Christopher Ward watches are perfect in that regard.
If they released a non transparent version, I'd buy it without a moment's thought, and I'm sure many others would buy it too.

I honestly love this watch so much, that I'm tempted to buy it and take it to a jeweler to see if they can colour in the transparent glass or something :lol: would be amazing if a non-transparent, or more opaque version was released, or if we could get that option

Compare and contrast - a different implementation of the CW moonphase movement.

For some reason the link directs incorrectly, this is the one:

Worth a look BTW, nice job, but steep pricing.
