Christopher ward regard the C9 Harrison range as their playground. This is the case that has given us the Mono Pusher, the Jumping Hour and the Worldtimer and now we get a Big Day Date style. It’s not a revolution, it’s not an innovation but it is an extension of a range that is shaping up to be a rather elegant and appealing selection of well made, value for money, tastefully understated watches that have that elusive enduring quality of desirability. This style of watches is not of its time in the way that you can identify say a late seventies car enthusiast chronograph watch, no it is a style that is of time itself that will still look fashionable and Gentlemanly in 30 years time.
The Harrison range is quintessential elegance and here at Beastie Folly we applaud Christopher ward for them.

The C9 Harrison Big Day-Date Automatic
Christopher Ward’s most premium models, the Harrison Collection, celebrate the true art of watchmaking. Each watch in the collection has a special movement complication created by our own Master Watchmaker, Johannes Jahnke, which raises each model to levels of mechanical excellence no other watch brand has achieved at such accessible price levels. It is the Christopher Ward difference writ large – and the C9 Big Day-Date is a stunning new expression of this difference.
Johannes has modified an ETA 2836-2 calibre automatic movement to produce the complication that gives the watch its name and, when combined with the exquisitely understated design aesthetic, the result is a watch of great provenance and classic beauty.
Simple yet complex; a rare example of form and function in perfect balance; a design that transcends fashion and marks its wearer as someone who understands the principles of real style; a watch that would grace anyone’s collection and one that we are very proud to have created. This is the C9 Harrison Big Day-Date.
