Our previous looks at the latest Chr. Ward models have been blue, through and through. Â And while that”sÂ my favorite color, I realize others might prefer something a bit warmer in hue. Â If so, then their latest pre-order is going to be right up your alley.
The model in question is their C7 Mk II Italian Racing Red. Â This is of course based off of their C7, and features a particular shade of red that is associated with Italian racing teams. Â Aside from that bold color, this is what you”ll get from this 300-piece limited edition watch:
- 42mm stainless steel case (10.7mm thick)
- Ronda 3540.D quartz chronograph movement; 1/10 second split timing
- 100 meter water resistance rating
- Sapphire crystal (AR-coated)
- “Driving glove” style leather strap
Overall, I do like the style of the watch – as with most CW designs, it”s cleanly executed and not overly cluttered (provided tachymeter scales don”t bother you); additionally, the leather strap they”ve selected pairs nicely with the red, and furthers the automotive theme.
The one part I”m not as big a fan of is the fact that we”ve got a quartz movement here. Â I realize this is very likely Gold Rush ist eine klassische Slot Maschine die besonders den Spielern gefallen wird die schoene Erinnerungen an die â€œEinarmigen Banditenâ€ mit 3 Rollen haben die man in slotmachineitaliane.net s auf dem Lande vorfindet. due to the fact of wanting to keep costs down (this one comes in at $550), but I”ve come to associate some very nice automatics with the CW brand, and for a LE, a quartz seems anÂ incongruousÂ choice.
Which isn”t to say it”s not a good movement – I”m sure it is. Â It”s just something that would personally give me a little bit of pause for purchasing it – I say if you”re going limited-edition, let”s make it stand out as much as you can. Â Then again, that”s just my take on it – let us know in the comments what you think about movement selection for LE watches.
