I have never owned a Nodus but I do like the story behind the brand: two guys growing up together who decide it would be cool to make a watch and the rest is history.

I have owned a Christopher Ward, the C65 Super Compressor, I bought it on one of their discount sales.  Upon receiving it I discovered an issue with the off-centred text that wasn’t fully disclosed upon its release.  I found this to be a very sneaky move on their part and not transparent hence the discount.  When I asked them about it they still weren’t forthcoming and basically said I should be happy because I received the watch with a discount.

I was not impressed and sold the watch on eBay at a loss and I will never touch the brand again.

This is why I voted for Nodus!

I wear a Nodus Retrospect 3 as my daily driver. I really like this brand. My watch looks great and has been durable as heck, seeing how I wear it everyday. Especially when I consider that I only paid $450 for it. I have been meaning to do a full review, hopefully soon. 

CW, makes a beautiful watch, but they are far more expensive and are really not a "micro" anymore.

Poll closed for the tournament. Congratulations Christopher Ward!
