For the full review please visit Word & Wound.

The Christopher Ward C5 Malvern Automatic MKII is contemporary take on a classic dress watch that mixes together a lot of remarkable components at an even more remarkable price. The MKII is a follow up to, you guessed it, the MKI, which was one of C Ward’s first watches, and one of the first watches on the market to have achieved “such sublime quality being made available at such an accessible price.” The MKII takes much of the aesthetic of the original, puts it in a case that is 1mm wider, and simplifies the dial a bit. The watch features a veritable laundry list of great components such as a sapphire crystal, a decorated Swiss Made Selitta SW200-1 movement, a display case back, nice finishing and trust worthy build quality for the very tolerable price of $365.
