The Christopher Ward C9 Harrison 5 Day Automatic Goes In-House

Posted on 07 July 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

Christopher Ward C9 01Christopher Ward is a watchmaker that gets a fair bit of space on our pages.  Not because they pay us, or advertise on the site, but because they make really nice watches and sells them at affordable price points.  I have one, a friend of mine has one, and I am pretty sure Patrick has one.  But all of these have someone else’s watch movement ticking away beneath the attractive design.  Well, CW just changed the equation.  The C9 Harrison 5 Day Automatic houses the brand’s first in-house movement, boasting a (you guessed it) 5 day power reserve.

Welcome back to our weekly installment, where we have a quick look at some interesting watches and articles that have popped up over the last week, as well as taking a second look at what some of our more popular articles this week were. Today, we’ve got a very nice Seiko that features a GMT complication, and a look at a watch brand I’ve not heard much about, Szanto.  After those, we’ll highlight (as usual) some of our more popular posts from the last week. Read on to see what we’ve got in store for you.

The Grand Seiko lineup is one that many of you likely don’t need any introduction too.  Sure, when you first hear about the line and the prices they go for (you don’t expect a four-figure Seiko, at least not when you’ve just picked up a Monster), you’re stopped in your tracks.  Do some research on them, and you may change your tune a bit, realizing the quality (and accuracy) they’re building.  While they’ve been a curiosity for me before, I’ve never given them too much thought.  That changes with the introduction of a GMT complication.  The team over at Monochrome give the watch a rundown, including word on the price (fortunately for my watch box, well out of my price range).

szanto

Going over to the opposite end of the pricing spectrum, TheTimeBum has a look at a brand I’ve not seen much attention on before, Szanto.  This looks to be a pretty massive watch (46mm) that wears a tad smaller, with some rather vintage looks (inspiration is supposedly drawn from the 1940s).  What I found the most interesting about this quartz chronograph was the fact that none of the subdials, or the date window, cut into the main numerals.  Sure, if makes things a bit “squished” in the middle of the dial, but it does give you full-size numerals, which is a common complaint on chronos.  Check out the review right here.

Christopher Ward C65 03

Now, let’s head back to our own pages.  First up, we’ve got Matt’s look at the newest model in the Christopher Ward Trident lineup, the C65.  We’re big fans of CW here, and I really enjoyed my time with the C60 Trident.  This latest version (well, when it’s available in June) takes the basic design in more of a dressy direction.  Sure, I miss the inclusion of a GMT complication, but for a clean three-hander for the office, this is a compelling (and affordable) option.

Bremont MBII 2

Next up we’ve got another of Matt’s articles, this time talking about a Bremont that most of us will never have the chance to own.  The reason being is that we’ve not ejected from a plane in a Martin-Baker ejection seat, which is a pre-requisite for owning this particular watch.  Should you like the styling, there are some civilian-ready variants, of course.  Check out Matt’s article for more details on the lineup.

Last, but certainly not least, don’t forget that you have a day left to enter our May giveaway!  Head on over here and get your entries in.

With that, we’ll wrap things up. As always, if there’s something you think we should be covering, feel free to drop us a line. If you bring something up that we end up writing about, we’ll be sure to tip our hats (electronically, if not literally) in your general direction.

Christopher-Ward-C1000-Typhoon (8)

Christopher Ward is a brand that has made a name for themselves created nicely styled (and technically appointed) watches coming in at affordable price points. As of late, they’ve been stretching their legs a bit, and have been creating some higher-end pieces. While they still represent a nice value for the money, these pieces represent the upper end of their lineup. Continue Reading
