C1 Grand Malvern Jumping Hour Watch Review

The Jumping Hour range is yet another watch to get the Grand Malvern treatment – Christopher Ward’s premium line of dress watches.

Good looking watch but still not sold on the alternating raised / slot hour batons, I think we have it right with the all raised batons on the FLE. The advertising guff rattles on about lightcatcher lines on the case but then misses a perfect opportunity to have lightcatcher batons on the dial.

Seems they were trying to mix in a bit of Nomos with that choice. It's not bad, but I like the way the FLE came out. :)
