Christopher Ward DBR1
I have fallen victim to watch phobia. This has been a problem for a long long time but I have managed to kept it under control. But recently I have been put under GREAT pressure from a fellow watchaholic. Having been promised a trip to Le Mans with the carrot of owning a Christopher Ward DBR1 ( which commemorates this great circuit) I cracked and bought one.
Well now that I have had a few hours to admire my new watch, I must say I am impressed with the quality. The packaging was very good,but nothing like the inner box when I opened it. It just screams at you. I own an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean and I would put the presentation on par with it.
The watch is very well put together, finish is excellent and the leather strap oozes quality right down to the stitching. Being used to plainer dials, I find this one a little busy but I am sure I will like it even more after a few days of wearing.
The only criticism I have is the clasp on the strap. I find it a little cumbersome to do up, not like a metal bracelet, but again I suspect time will heal that part of the equation.
So overall more than pleased with my FIRST CW watch and waiting impatiently for the arrival of my second a C90 Becketts hopefully early December. Now some pics.
