Take A Look At The Christopher Ward C9 Jumping Hour Mens Replica

Here is my hands-on review of the Christopher Ward C9 Jumping Hour replica watch, including a 1-minute video of the replica watch in action.Christopher Ward Mens Replica is an entry-level British luxury replica watch brand which specializes in both mechanical and quartz replica watches. All its timepieces are designed in the UK and manufactured in Biel, Switzerland.  The aim for Christopher Ward is simple and not unlike that of Frederique Constant: to put well made and designed replica watches within the reach of more than just deep-pocketed replica watch buyers and elite collectors.

The origins of the Jumping Hour (or Jump Hour) replica watch have been traced to French and Swiss Pocket replica watches and clocks from as far back as the 1830s and 1840s.   The great Swiss-based Austrian replica watchmaker Joseph Pallweber did exemplary work with Jumping Hour pocket replica watch models for IWC in the 1880s and so is regarded by some as the father of the digital replica watch. Despite the modern connection with electronic displays, the general definition of a digital replica watch is on that displays time in the form of numbers, rather than by  dial and hands.  So a Jumping Hour replica watch can be seen as a fascinating hybrid of analogue and digital.  The analogue minute hand passes round the dial and gives the impetus for the “jump” of the hour numeral, which brings in the digital element.  The prominent digit in the hour window and the position of the minute hand enable one to tell time very quickly and easily.

The modified automatic mechanical ETA 2894-2 caliber in this replica watch is the work of Johannes Jahnke.  Championed by Marco Heyne of Lange & Heyne (Germany), Johannes finished his first replica watch in 2006 with the support of Lange & Heyne.  In 2008, Jahnke was asked by join Jörge Bader, Christopher Ward’s Swiss partner.  Working out of Biel, Switzerland, Jahnke went on to produce this jump hour caliber, as well as a mono-pusher chronograph design for Christopher Ward as well.
