C900 Harrison Single Pusher Chronograph
Latest engineering, masterpiece, wonderful creation, premium, loving etc are some of the phrases and epithets you find around the web, customers and fans of CW about this mono pusher. Its worldwide release has been limited to only 250 pieces.
The watch is personally assembled by master watchmaker, Johannes Jahnke in collaboration with Jean Fillion, based on a 2009 prototype after the Unitas 6497 calibre. Jahnke and Fillion deconstructed the base of the watch and redesigned the chronograph using hand sketches and CAD drawings. They reengineered the movements with a “new plate, bridges, winding mechanism, center and second wheels.”
The watch case is hand finished, surgical grade, stainless steel. Its large, 43 mm diameter, 15.9 mm height, and 316 L stainless steel case, is larger than most dress watches, but subtle enough to pull it off. The case’s contrasting brushed finishes minimize the appearance of its size, and is enhanced with curved lugs, and a bold crown, engraved with the CW logo. It comes complete with a museum-grade sapphire crystal with AR08 coating, making the watch easy to read from all angles.
The face of the watch is an optic white one-piece dial with two subdials. On the top of the face is the classic Christopher Ward logo. The hours are marked by the two Roman numerals 12 and 6, and the intervening hours and minutes as hashes. The main dial has three hands, the hour, minute and chronograph hands, each drawn out to a narrow point. The hour and minute hands are polished steel, while the chronograph is black. One of the two subdials is a continuous secondhand, and the other, a 30 minute chronograph. Its elegant dial merges the classic face of a dress watch with the sportiness of a chronograph.
The C900 Harrison single pusher’s back sports a transparent case with a minimalistic stainless steel design, screwed down with four screws. It consists of a full diameter anti-reflective crystal. The case back is wide enough and transparent enough so that you can see working of each part once the single push is depressed. The sliding gear and the intermediate wheel which engage the minute counter can also be seen once the clutch is activated. It does not end there. Press it once again, and you are separating the clutch. Once you do that, the brake lever activates instantly the minute counter stops.
This serial number of this limited edition timepiece is engraved on both the case and its movement. In addition, it comes with a personalized authenticity certificate signed by Johannes Jahnke, himself.
The C900 Harrison vibrates at 18,000 vph, which amounts to about five ticks per second. This makes the chronograph function not the most accurate in the world, and limits its single pusher function to start stop and reset only. As a dress watch however, its chronograph provides timekeeping above and beyond the needs of its user, and adds a sporty elegance to the wrist.

The watch is further equipped with a premium suede-backed Louisiana alligator band, and a signed Christopher Ward dual deployment clasp. And, as with all Christopher Ward timepieces, the watch comes with a five-year movement guarantee.

The reviews for the C900 Harrison have been rolling in ever since its release. New owners have commented that, “The pristine white dial and simple appearance make this big watch striking.”
“A pure classic, beautiful and simple yet sophisticated.” Another reviewer wrote, “The movement is a work of art in design and functionality, and you will want to pull it off from time to time and take a glance at its inner workings.”

Christopher Ward wrote about the C900 Single Pusher Chronograph, that is by far the most complicated watch they have delivered to date. And by doing so, they have made this new level of sophistication in the reach of more people than ever before. He goes on to write that he was so “completely transfixed” the first time Jahnke showed him the movement, that he was almost moved to tears of “joy and pride.”
