their new logo isnt great at all, on the new 'vintage' trident, which is a shame as its a nice looking watch. i'd probably cop if the logo was different.


their classic logo is alright though

You could put in the most amazing font ever and it would still be awful. Why? Because it says Christopher Ward. That's 15 characters. The Christopher Ward watch wearer is a person with a weak wet handshake.

The fact that burny is bumming is own client with marketing dross on here is good enough reason for you not to wear it.

What kind of person buys a £500 watch? That's an odd price point to me (for a watch). Miles cheaper alternatives with cooler sounding names or you could just save and buy a classic.

Burny has edited his post to omit the paragraph of marketing BS he wrote about CHRISTOPHER WARD's font.

Hardly speal. A comment was made about a logo I designed, and I explained the reason for it.

You took a font (futura?) and adjusted the kerning. You call that a logo design?

i bought it as a gift. it's probably the best bang for buck, and the way they present their watches as a brand/packaging (and engraving) makes for a perfect gift. i'm more than happy, and i'm sure my dad will be too Eye-wink

Perfectly ok as a gift to your dad. Maybe that's the target market, wonder if he wears Ted Baker specs.

To be fair the name Martyn Smith (with a Y) has a certain weak wet handshake ring to it. It's no wonder you've turned out the way you have.

I might be selling my white gold Rolex Daytona (2015) soon if there's any Fukers on the hunt for one? Decent offers will be considered.
