Christopher Ward have been an awesome brand to us here at Scottish Watches from the very first few weeks we were starting this website and began our podcast, so we appreciate them giving a completely unknown entity a lot of time and access when we were literally 2 episodes and a couple of articles old.
So it was exciting to hear today that the company has just had an extra investment of over £6 million from BGF to help grow the business and move forward in the wonderful world of wristwatches.
CEO and co-founder Mike France said “We’ve made great progress in fourteen years, establishing really solid foundations and feel the time is now right to “spread the Ward” to even more people worldwide. The team at BGF understood this, are as excited as we are about creating a truly great brand and business and we are delighted to have them as our partner for the next phase of the journey.”
We’re now eager to see what new developments appear on the horizon from the brand and we’ve heard some rumours of exciting new pieces coming in the next few months on the road to winter.
Got into the horological hobby only a couple of short years ago; but got, as us Scots like to say, “baw deep” pretty quickly. Thanks to buying a lemon of a Rolex he spent hours researching why his watch wasn’t working and along the way gained an interest in what makes them tick. He now runs the Scottish Watches website and keeps cohort Rick in check on the twice weekly Scottish Watches podcast.
