Christopher Ward Alex - Watch Collection P2

Posted by Adrian Ainsworth on August 5, 2012 at 1:00 AM


The recent Christopher Ward Sale included some huge discounts on some of his ladies watches and when Mrs Peanut saw the Alex range with 70% off she could not resist. The Alex watch came on a metal bracelet or with a leather strap as above. She decided that the full bracelet would be too similar to her iconic Hamilton Ventura so she went for the anthracite finish on a grey leather strap. For good measure she also bought a matching full metal bracelet.


The honest opinion here is that at full price it was a lot to pay for this watch but in the sale it became a different proposition. We suspect that this was the consensus view as CWL must have had a lot to clear to offer such a large discount. Nonetheless it makes for a different and attractive fashion watch, which means that the search for a tool watch for Mrs P's small wrists goes on. The Hamilton Khaki Lady Officer remains favourite but the price point means it needs some saving up for.


Conclusion: a little cracker from the Christopher Ward sale.

I think this watch is beautiful. I am highly considering buying one myself as an evening wear watch but am having a hard time figuring out which color combination will work well for me. This is high on the list as well as the black leather with the anthracite or steel pyramids. How is Mrs. Peanut enjoying her watch now? Any suggestions as to how to make the final decision - this will be my first 'real' watch and I'm a little gun shy! By the way, in case you have seen it, I am also considering the matisse as an everyday watch ..any thoughts?

peanut is very pleased with this watch, which is a little different and looks good on the grey strap. her only gripe is that she struggles to see the small face. I do not think that it is still available from Christopher Ward, but Christopher Ward have recently beefed up their ladies range and include some automatics too - real watches indeed.

However, they do not as yet have an automatic in their sports range which is what she is waiting for. Untill they do the most likely next watch for Mrs P would be a Hamilton Khaki Lady Officer.
