Christopher Ward just declared the arrival of their new C9 Harrison Jumping Hour MKII . We were large devotees of the first C9 Jumping Hour just as the C900 Mono-Pusher Chronograph , which we had the joy of investigating, and we’re exceptionally eager to see this new form of the C9. The C9xx Harrison arrangement by C Ward is pearl in the watch business that offers striking an incentive for imaginative mechanics and horology believability ordinarily saved for watches of with a lot bigger sticker prices. Obviously, as a site zeroed in on available watches, these are among our favorites.
The new C9 MKII uses the equivalent very effective JJ01 Jump Hour module as the first form, which is assembled onto a workhorse ETA 2824-2 programmed development. For those new to this idea, a bouncing hour watch has a mechanical-advanced presentation for the hour and a simple minutes. At the stroke of the following hour, the hour show “jumps” forward to show the new hour. It’s a novel component that traces all the way back to the mid 20th century, and however uncommon nowadays, is a superb complication to view. For a certain something, the watch is incredibly simple to peruse, as the time is introduced plainly, and second makes an exceptional appearance that is exquisite while being a touch odd.
The huge contrast between the MKI and the MKII are the general feel. The MKI went for an old style look, with a guilloche dial and a carefully erupted minute hand. The MKII follows the tasteful of the C900 Chronograph, which has a more craftsmanship deco, smoothed out look. It has a perfect plan that blends dress and game, with a bigger than normal case at 43mm, a blend of cleaned and brushed completing for some tastefulness, and an inadequate dial that highlights applied markers, printed Arabic numerals and an enormous gap for the bounce hour at 12. The moment hand is the very slim pointed needle that is utilized on the C900, which gives the watch a specific similarity to tachometers.
The new C9 Harrison Jumping Hour MKII is right now accessible for preorder and costs $1,695. It is a restricted version of 250 units, so I expect they wont be accessible for long. We’re truly anticipating seeing what else C Ward comes out with in the C9 line, as they’ve yet to baffle. They’ve previously alluded to a Worldtimer, and a major day/date on the horizon.
