A Closer Look At The Christopher Ward Calibre SH21

Post by Racer-X » July 8th 2017, 12:03pm

by Sonsored Post "Back in 2014, Christopher Ward broke into the world of in-house movement manufacturing with the introduction of the Calibre SH21. As an unexpected move to witness from a young, independent brand, industry experts were curious, surprised, and in many ways, thrilled to see this kind of dedication from Christopher Ward. Since then, the British brand has released a handful of attractive watches that utilize the the SH21 - like the the Christopher Ward C1 Grand Malvern Power Reserve. Today, Christopher Ward continues to push the limits of their very own in-house movement and now aim to find new ways to build upon the SH21 as a base movement to be used in newer and more feature-packed timepieces."

Use sponsored post as a point of reference and take them with a grain of salt, a quick Google search will take you to several reviews of the SH21including private collectors (all favorable BTW) compare and make your own conclusions ....watch exposure of any kind, is good in my book.

I can't stop...
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

Calibre SH21 is an automatic watch movement produced since 2014 by Synergies Horlogères, part of Christopher Ward London Holdings.

Introduced in 2014, Calibre SH21 was a new design by Johannes Jahnke. It is produced by Synergies Horlogères with nine other suppliers in Switzerland. The name combines the initials of the producing company with the number 21, standing for "21st century" and indicating the newness of the design.

Calibre SH21 is a modular movement, with components designed to be interchanged with other future models. It is a double barrel movement with automatic winding, good for 5 days of power reserve when fully wound. The modular design makes it quite large and thick, but this is not out of place in modern watch cases. The movement is chronometer certified by COSC.

Looks like a big operation:

I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

Yup. But I suppose it doesn't take a lot of real estate to house one guy named Johannes Jahnke.

I'm ok with it so long as they don't claim he has a staff of thousands.

Come to think of it, Ball's address in the early years looked like a dead drop from a Tom Clancy novel.

I read a Tom Clancy novel once. I'd rather drop dead than read another.
