WOTY 2014: Christopher Ward C9 Harrison 5 Day Auto

0

When Christopher Ward launched ten years ago with a series of good-looking quartz timepieces for less than £200, few people would have suspected that a decade later the company would be releasing its first in-house, Swiss-made, manufacture movement.

But after several years of successful collaboration with Synergies Horlogeres and the movement development house’s young watchmaker master Johannes Jahnke, the conditions were ripe for a merger.

Ward’s first movement from its new Swiss facility was the SH21, a robust, flexible and adaptable movement that will easily be able to take on future complications.

The automatic movement boasts a 120-hour power-reserve through twin barrels and other watch brands have already started buying and adapting the SH21 movement for their own ends. British watch-making may still be a fringe pursuit, but the SH21 is a landmark development for this British watch brand.
