Thread: So, the new Christopher Ward. I likey.

  1. #1

    So, the new Christopher Ward. I likey.

    Haven't seen this new line here yet. Looks like they are going whole hog on the new diver line.

    It looks like they've refined the previous Trident, fixed the dumb date window, and gone for a dressy dial with a beefy diver body. ETA/Selita diver, COSC diver, and GMT 4-hander with GMT bezel. Buch of colors and even two sizes. They are betting BIG on this one.

    I really really didn't think I wanted another watch, but I've been looking for a travel/fun watch that's nice, but not Speedy/Nomos nice.

    Anyone else keeping an eye on these?

    I got to be honest. I didn't like the old one and I like the new one even less.

    Big improvement over the old one, which I liked a lot, took it on many dives but I wish they would have fully indexed the bezel.

    Except for the hour hand, it looks pretty good to me, especially the GMT version . I can think of lots of watches I'd choose ahead of CW, though.

    Still not loving it that much, but better than before.

    Have to admit I like it when my eyes come across pictures of the new ones with their own COSC movement, such as this one I just stole from the CW Forum:

    Got a hint of the Fisher Price about it, but in a wholesome way. Anyone thinking of getting one?

    PS think they should have got a new date wheel for this model, with a font that matches the rest of the watch, but hey

    Strong bump. It's nice're right about the date wheel font though, though I probably wouldn't have noticed had you not pointed it out....
