First, apologies for the crappy photos skills. I was trying to grab quick shots of the groom at my friend's wedding.
A little story. My friend Erika gave me a task -- to find a really cool, good quality watch for a specific price to give as a wedding morning present to her fiance. After some research on Timezone and my BMW forums, good folks directed me to Stowa, Sinn and one Christopher Ward. A few others, too. The Christopher Ward watches really grabbed my attention, and hers, too. The right look, a cool website, and, definitely the right price!
She settled on the Malvern Chronograph. Because of the anomalies of the website that day, the order click suggested that her card was not accepted. We tried again. Same result! Argh!!! Then, she received two confirmation emails. A little panic set in as the wedding was in one week and the CC company called to ask her about purchases (this particular card is rarely used). Emails and calls to Christopher resulted in the most amazing CS. The mistake was corrected and another watch dispatched DHL to get to the wedding on time. One CS rep even emailed Erika on her Blackberry from her Barbados vacation to help resolve the situation! They really go the distance.
Now, the reason for the post. No matter how good the photography on the site, they do not do these watches justice. Simply, one of the most gorgeous watches I have seen. I'll be ordering a couple of Chris' watches for myself. The quality and luxury look are superb. Personally, I don't know how he does it. Rolex must have the most astronomical markup! LOL
