    Thoughts on new ultra-thin Christopher Ward C5 Malvern 595?

    Couldn't find a thread related to this watch, but CW announced it the other day and just wondered what others thought about it. It's a very slim (<6mm) watch, with an ETA hand-wound movement.

    Looks better than previous slimline Malvern in that the movement on display actually has some basic Cotes de Geneves finishing on it - this was always an issue for me before (why put a display back on a bog-standard ETA movement).

    Also, 39mm might sound small, but I reckon it'll wear quite large being so thin and mostly dial. In terms of colours, I like the look of both the grey and white dial versions, but a splash of colour, e.g. blue hands might have been nice.

    So all in all, I feel it's a step in the right direction and there is lots to commend it. But is it tempting enough?

    I also saw it pop up on Instagram.

    Looks interesting - will be hoping to see some real shots / wristshots in the next few months before decide on it

    Agree. It looks very well finished in the official shots, but I have a feeling it might not be as good as that in real life.

    I like the case and dial color.

    Owned a Nomos Orion in the past and the side view (as well as the layout of the indices) of this CW reminds me a little of the Orion.

    Love the dial color as well but it's so slim.

    While I like a cleaner design, this probably isn't it for me. Imho it looks better with the white dial option. I'm not crazy about the pointy ends to the hands either.

    Almost there. 37mm would have been much better.

    I like where they’re headed and glad they’re keeping their logo (for the time being). They’re owning it, can’t fault them for that.

    More color configurations would be nicer.

    The gray dial isn't my cup of tea, though kudos for trying something different. I prefer the white dial version. Given how thin it is and that it's nearly all dial, I feel like this will look deceptively large on the wrist.

    It's a nice watch. Maybe the case is a bit too much old fashion. When I look at the dial, it's a today's watch. But when I look at the case, it's more like 60s...

    It looks great and the price is almost ridiculously low but it’s dress watch and I almost certainly wouldn’t be able to do it the justice it deserves.
