    1. Model Christopher Ward C9 Big Day Date
    2. Diameter (w/o crown) 43mm
    3. Condition Very Good
    4. Age 8 Months
    5. Availability of box and papers Yes
    6. Current location of watch Kent/London
    7. Asking-price £450
    8. Shipping-costs £12 Insured Special Delivery

    I have bought too many watches recently and not sold enough. 2 new acquisitions were dress watches so unfortunately 1 needs to go and this is it.
    Lovely C9BDD. Was bought 8months ago originally on the blue leather with bader deployment which compliments the hands perfectly. I have also since added the CWL C9 bracelet aswell so it will come with both. Spare links are included.

    Its in near perfect condition with the only blemish being a very tiny dink in the bezel, right next to the crystal at around 1 o clock. This can only be seen through a loupe, i have tried to picture it magnified.

    Comes fully boxed.

    Thanks.

    Can you tell me please if you provide a copy of the receipt, and the 5 year warranty is transferable after selling on, finally how is it for holding time?

    It keeps very good time within spec. Its in rotation with about 13 watches so not sure on exact seconds.
    Yes the warranty goes with the watch with Christopher Ward. I have bought and sold MANY and its one of the great things about them.
    Original receipt will be included with the sale.
    Thanks.

    Thank you for that.

    Could you tell me please the size of your wrists and if possible would you mind taking a photo of it on your wrist?

    I have double cuffs and it is to go under them so I want to make sure it's it's nice without being bulky

    I've been tempted by this very model many times, I dont have anything like it in the collection and need to fill a hole until I can justify the IWC Portuguese. My only problem is that I have very small wrists for a man! 43mm is quite big although I do have another 43mm watch already and it's pushing it for size.

    Are you open to offers?

    What a beautiful watch, however, I do feel like I have been robbed as you bought the watch for £349.50p and you sold it to me for £420.

    To say I am disappointed is an understatement, I guess you have not broken any rules, but the whole point of AVForums is (to me anyway), to be morally just and open about trades. If you had mentioned the purchase price and reason for selling it was to make money then that would have been a decision people would have to make.

    The point of AVForums is to feel you have had a good deal, if it was rare, sought after and/or other then to sell items worth more than RRP, for above RRP is up to the buyer. So I guess you bought it in the sale, which was February this year, well you made a good profit, happy for you.

    So with that, I will leave you negative feedback and if asked by a potential purchaser, I will respond accordingly.

    What a shame, especially with your trader rating, I have had my eyes opened.

    I’m sorry, what?! I bought the watch in a one off sale. The RRP was £700. The watch is no longer available. This is the VALUE of the watch.
    The bracelet alone was £120. Therefore I paid £470.

    It’s irrelevant what was paid, it is what the watch is worth now.
