They are nice watches but generally overpriced Imo even though customer service is good. Still can pick up a decent watch in their sale

I'd say way underpriced though if you catch a 50% sale when you consider they have the same Swiss movt as a lot of other watches ! Ie Tag Heuer !

​are they the same movements or do Tag use in house?

I actually think CW make some nice watches and have owned a couple but think the likes of Steinhart offer better value. You might be able to pick up a lot of watch for the money in the sale though

my first post on here.... but i have a couple of Christopher Ward watches. They are nice watches, decent quality.

They do an automatic with a 5 day power reserve in house movement (SH21).... which is a really long reserve. Most are the usual ETA movements though.

Worth a look especially at the sale prices.

Tempted to get a jump hour torn between 40 and 43mm I own 2 c60s and a makaira pro 500 so the 43mm may be better I think.

Most Tag movements are not in house. A lot of the Tag models use sellita movements which are also found in some of the Christopher Ward watches.
Steinhart also offer great quality for the money paid.

They do use some of the same ETA auto movements as Tag, ETA 2824 I believe.. many many Swiss watches use this movt though, Tag use a lot of there own eta based modified different movts too though

This is also correct . ETA and Selita are both used

Im looking at same watch, have about 9cws from 38mm to 43mm, if i bought this would prob go for 40mm as more of dress watch and i think they look better smaller, prefer my divers bigger

Valid point. I don't own many dress watches of any calibre. Mostly divers tbh. Will give it some thought.

never heard of this brand before.

Almost unknown in fact, buy something more popular like Casio, Timex or Poljot instead...

​better watches than any of those brands

Christopher Ward are ok for what they are but just beware that the sale price is the price - the full price is the sucker price (in the same way only suckers pay full price for Alton Towers and the like).

Better watches that Casio? Come on, let's be serious - Casio in their MTG lines and Oceanus knock the socks off CW and its wannabe swiss stuff.

Grand Seiko of course is a fine addition to any collection (especially if it has that lovely snow drift dial) - it shouldn't be even mentioned in the same breath as a CW.

Massively overpriced.

Back in 2005 these used to be 200ish and were good value. Then they become popular and they bumped up their prices to a premium bracket. Just about acceptable when on sale, but the choice is limited to the ugly lines they can't sell.

Fantastic deal
These watches are beautifully made with surgical steel, ceramic bezels, etc. and are as good or better then the cheap swiss makes, such as Tag Heuer, Maurice Lacroix, Hamilton, Longines, etc.
The normal prices are a bargain, these are amazing

I laughed when I read the stuff about Casio etc. above. You always get a few walkers crisps posters in HUD threads over £10 :-)
