We are ever so excited here at The Watch Review Site, so we just had to let you see a few shots of the upcoming Christopher Ward C900 Mono pusher which we have the pleasure of having for a Hands on Review courtesy of CWL. Yes we know the watch is on pre-order but they so kindly let us play with their one and only sample timepiece.
The key here is that this represents a huge leap forward in terms of complication and uniqueness for Christopher Ward as a brand. The C900 has the pleasure of only CW’s second bespoke movement (Calibre JJO2), which was constructed and manufactures with the German” watchmaking wunderkind”, the 28 year old Johannes Jahnke (the first was calibre JJO1, which was in the much-praised jumping hour watch). Johannes who has worked with the legendary watchmaker, 84 year old Mr Jean Fillon to create a completely re-worked adaptation of the Unitas 6497 calibre for the C900 mono pusher or single pusher.
The net result of JJ’s revolutionary approach means that the owner receives a unique view through the case-wide exhibition case-back of how a chronograph actually works. This being a mono pusher all the functions are worked through a single central pusher in the crown and this is a very significant complication for the brand to exhibit on the C900 watch.
A Quote form Christopher Ward London, highlights its vision “For a watch of this vision, uniqueness and complexity it would be realistic to expect a retail price of £7k and upwards. That CW is able to deliver this to our customers at £2450 is a source of great pride and further underlines our determination to bring the truly top class timepieces within the reach of many more people.
The JJ02 movement of the C900 is encased in a 43mm Stainless Steel case with a medium thickness suitable for most wrists. The face is white with black Roman numerals at 12 and 6. The thin, needle like dials allow precise pointing and add to the look of the Christopher Ward C900. With two sub dials are devoted to a 30 minute measure for the chronograph and running seconds.
Now that’s enough and you have to wait a few days for our full review and some proper photos.
