Your Red JAG watch, has a fantastic appearance.

I do love the vibrance of these red dials, even though I have yet to get my hands on one, of any brand.

The one single aspect that for me gives CW watches a big advantage, compared with the Seiko watches that I have seen, is the the top premium quality of the steel bracelets that come as standard with Chris Ward watches.

Having said the above, in fairness, I have not examined or seen the seiko watches in the equivalent CW or higher price points. Hopefully the Seiko Dive watches within the £600 to £1200 UK price range will include stainless bracelets that have the higher end features. Assuming so, I would certainly give them a serious consideration for a future purchase.

As a one-time owner of the red C7 IRR COSC (from new I hasten to add) I honestly found that whilst the combination of red and chrome elements absolutely popped in full sunlight, it all went a rather insipid in the normal subdued natural light of British spring, autumn and winter: I can't say how or why but it just did and I have never looked at another red dial watch since.

When it comes to better quality bracelets for Seiko there's always Strapcode.
I've had a go with most CW models in the true spirit of online buying - get it, try it, keep it or flip it! White C60 Mk2, Black C60 Mk2 GMT and the big blue beast!

A red one that’s particularly appealing to me at present

Yes, I like these too. Very retro.
