At long last, the wait is over after 1.3 years and my @ChristopherWard Bel Canto has finally arrived! Extremely comfortable, both the titanium and the very well made strap. The chiming is a bit on the soft and slightly underwhelming side. But the striking looks are just so impressive that one forgets about the actual raison d鈥櫭猼re of the watch, the chiming. Very, very nicely executed and yes, I will admit it, worth the wait.

Congratulations Phillipp! Stunning!!

Congratulations!!! The Bel Canto is one of the best from #christopherward who would've thought we'd see this level of finishing and craftsmanship with the price? Cheers & wear it in good health

Their business model is getting worse though: the delays aside, they promised to take care of all duties. I got stuck with the bill and now they鈥檙e ghosting me. Likewise, when asked how my deposit and the rrrp are up to whatever they claimed I had to pay, radio silence again. So do take whatever they say with a massive grain of salt, be it delivery times, claims to reimburse you or their accounting. Care to comment @ChristopherWard ?

I see, that seems like a nightmare. Makes me think twice about purchasing a piece from them 馃

Go on Reddit if you want more opinions of people with similar stories. I鈥檒l say that the watch is great though. My personal experiences with the business have been less than stellar though.

Thanks for the advice.
