    I like everything about Christopher Ward watches except....

    ....their logo.

    I'm referring to the "Chr. WARD / London" logo on the watch face. It looks like something that should be on the side of a ladies' handbag.

    I think it detracts hugely from the dial design, especially on the diving watches like the Makaira.

    If anyone from Chr. Ward is reading this - and I suspect they do have someone that searches for and reads forum discussion about the brand, as it's a part of modern marketing savvy - here's one potential customer who likes your product but is hesitant to pull the trigger because of the logo. Just some food for thought.

    There was some possible legal problem, I think, with a similar logo,as above, so he changed it.
    I think.
    Any watches posted may be seen as gifts,borrowed or found property and not as personal property of Little Big Feather.

    Honestly, I feel the same way! That is probably why i don't own any...It's all in the details for me and i will not invest in anything that would drive me nuts. I preferred the old logo (like the one posted above by LBF).

    I can assure you that there are plenty of people on the Christopher Ward forum who think exactly the same, so yours wouldn't be the first feedback like this that they saw.

    Totally agree, the logo is terrible. That's how I know I really love my C61. Everything else is so perfect I can overlook the logo.

    This has been the subject of intense debate on the CW forum for ages. I have CW watches with both logos and to be honest after a while I've got used to the new logo. In fact it looks quite good on some models.

    I don't think the logo would prevent me from buying a CW, since they do what they do very well, but I'm definitely not a fan of it either.

    I felt the same, but I've gotten over it. Have been considering buying their new world timer.

    I never could stand the hour hand shape they use on so of their watches. The organic shape really clashes with the rest of the watch and doesn't match the minute hand at all. Almost like it was made from a watchmakers box of random hands.

    I too am not a fan. However, I do think the old logo looks dated in comparison now..hasn't aged well
