Christopher Ward’s Mark I version of the C9 Harrison Jumping Hour watch was a finalist in the ‘00/24 Watch World European Watch of The Year Awards 2012’ and the extraordinary JJ01 complication, created by Master Watchmaker Johannes Jahnke, has deservedly been acclaimed by many experts since its arrival in 2011. Now, this model is now available in a special Limited Edition with an 18ct solid rose-gold bezel.
Witnessing the Mark II’s remarkably smooth transition of the hours and the perfect alignment of minute hand and hour dial is a delight and glorious affirmation of devotion to continuous improvement. Additionally, the adoption of the case and dial aesthetic that was introduced for Christopher Ward’s highly acclaimed C900 Single Pusher Chronograph gives the C9 Jumping Hour Mark II a crisp and subtle design.
Each of the Limited Edition 250 pieces of this special rose gold version of the C9 Jumping Hour Mark II will be assembled at Christopher Ward’s own workshops in Biel, Switzerland, by Johannes and his team and will arrive with a letter of authenticity signed by the man himself.
The rare and simple beauty of the highly acclaimed C9 Jumping Hour Mk II has captured the imagination of watch aficionados across the world since its launch last year and the subtle tones of rose gold further accentuate the beauty of the watch. This first use of solid gold by Christopher Ward adds a precious element of real inherent value of itself and is complemented beautifully by an ethically-sourced Louisiana alligator strap, in black or tan, as standard.
The rose-gold edition of the C9 Jumping Hour Mk II is available to pre-order now for delivery in September in a limited edition of only 250 pieces.
