C9 Harrison Big Day Date Watch: An Exquisite Minimalist Design


There is no better inspiration for master watchmaker, Johannes Jahnke, than the idea of change. It can be seen from every model of the Christopher Ward Harrison lineage that he has made. Each is delicately designed to be different from the other in its features and each has a movement complication that is entirely unique from what comes before it. Jahnke knows very well that watches these days are leaning toward larger models.

The brand new Harrison watch must respond to these changes with distinctiveness and sophistication. The introduction of the new C9 Harrison  is that response. While this C9 model’s large frame goes very well with the latest trend, its day and date feature is a glaring representation of the timepiece’s individuality and a manifestation of the brand’s commitment to functionality and fashion.

With a 43mm diameter, this  Big Day Date watch is relatively bigger than a regular watch, but such increase in size is justified by the watch’s sleek thickness of 12.3mm. Inside this beauty, a Calibre ETA 2836-2 is installed, giving it a quicker day change capability with a beat rate of 28,800 bph. The use of this movement is unprecedented in the Harrison line since this is the first day and date watch of the group.

back review

The design of the  Harrison Big Day Date watch is comparable to the Tissot Heritage Visodate. At first glance, the C9 Harrison Big Day Date watch resembles some features of the Tissot watch. But a closer look at both watches will reveal a more minimalist appeal of the C9. The innovative day and date feature as well as the white dial of the C9 are primarily the reasons why it has been compared to the Heritage Visodate. But if you examine all the elements of the C9 watch, you will notice that its hour, minute and second hands give it a higher aesthetic value than the Visodate. Compared to the plain stainless steel, short hands of the Tissot watch, those of the C9 are longer and colored.

The black hour and minute hands beautifully complement its silver second hand, giving the inside of this timepiece a sophisticated look. The C9 Harrison Big Day Date watch is given such a name because of the functional day and date windows fashionably positioned at 3 o’clock. It gives the wristwatch a dignified form that rises above other watches within its price range. All these great features are complemented by none other than a premium alligator leather strap that comes in either brown or black. The straps are joined by a butterfly clasp that is equally stylish.

This C9 Harrison Big Day Date Watch is prefect for men who prefer an exquisite but minimalist design. At a reasonable price of £650.00/$899.00, you can call it a steal.
