I’ll be the first to admit – the prior post on the CW Jumping Hand was a bit unfair, as the model is now unavailable. So, I’m making amends with this post, and offering up the C9 Harrison Automatic for your consideration. Let me start by stating that yes, it is indeed currently available, and for a very reasonable $489.
This is a watch that I would classify as a dress watch, with its classic and subtle styling. The Harrison name apparently is in reference to John Harrison, who, 250 years ago, created the H4 chronometer. It is comprised of a 43mm polished case with an AR-coated sapphire crystal that is water resistant to 50 meters. Under the dial, you have the (ever-present) ETA 2824-2 Swiss automatic mechanical movement, complete with a 38-hour power reserve.
What might not make it such a great dress watch is the fact that it’s 13mm thick, which might make it difficult to slip under a shirt cuff. Outside the cuff, though, I couldn’t help but to repeat a line from CW’s page – “the overall effect is one of sublime coalescence of style and function.” The do appear to be a limited edition, as they state the caseback will have an individually numbered serial engraved. If you liked what you saw with their Jumping Hand model, this is definitely a more attainable option you should explore.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
