Been idly looking for a new mechanical watch and have given up on the Rolex " we might put your name on the waiting list if you also buy lots of expensive jewelry" sales system. I came across Ward and found that they sell a whole range of Morgan watches. As in Morgan

Anyone bought them? If so, do they work well or are they a designer outside on a cheepo movement?

I have a CW Morgan watch ( the quartz C3 at the lower end of their range although I prefer the look of the black C1) Its behaved impeccably during my ownership. Theres a very vocal CW group on Facebook who express the full range of experiences. Generally folk are very happy with the product they have for the price they pay

A lot of folk comment on how good and bad their after sales service is too.

They regularly do 'special offers' which range from £100 vouchers to 20% off and they have sales twice per year offering bigger discounts.

check out their website and sign up for their newsletter and you may well receive one of the offers

I seem to have signed up for the emails by accident so I get the offers.

I have a C3 too, very pleased with it and never had any trouble. It is very well made.

If you’d like a few alternatives, here are some other options:-

https://autodromo.com/watches/

Autodromo do small runs, so styles change over time and watches come and go. I have a Group B and I like the motorsport insperation.


Of course we also have our very own member who makes watches:

https://www.gasgasbones.com/about-6b

Again, small run, so you may have to be patient.


And another UK based small watch Co

https://www.pinionwatches.com/


There are others but if you want something that isn’t mass produced, there are some great options out there.

I collect watches - but have yet to add a Bremont. But had a tour around their factory recently and was very impressed with what the brothers have achieved.

I agree that the Patek and Rolex dealer games are ridiculous, which is a shame as there are some interesting watches from both.

I'm a big fan of Omega - I think there are some Omegas that easily rival Rolex.

I have a mechanical JeagerLC and it went away for a service which I was advised would take two/three months.

I bought a lovely self winding German mechanical watch to cover the period (man logic applied) and love it.
https://www.laco-watches.com/en/index

I think it was roughly this model in black body and black strap. They had a sale on and it was about £300 from memory.
https://www.laco-watches.com/en/wat...ch-augsburg-42mm-automatic-leather-strap

It has been excellent with little to no marking on the body and the strap has remained intact. It feels very solid and I thought it great value. You can see the mechanism through the glass back just like a £20k Panerai

The watch cost less than the JLC service. Made me think.

Everyone loves a Morgan. Even me, unless it's broken again.
