    Dave, Iíd be delighted to discuss practically anything watch-related with you all day long and it would be an education. And in this case youíre right in that 1940s to 1980s British Army soldiers...

    I've had, albeit briefly, one of Paolo's A-13A chronos, and very nice it is too. But I think the addition of running seconds, date and lumed bezel makes for a watch that is more practically usable in...

    Agreed - I like that first simplified running seconds display, too - a bit like the 24 hr display on a Lemania 5100 dial.

    I like countdown bezels, but would find a GMT bezel on a chrono really useful. Any chance of getting the 0-12 bezel insert as an option in the package for fitting later, like the PRS-17C?

    Well, I measured mine at 37.5mm excluding crown, 40mm incl crown, confirmed by a search online. It's 10.5mm thick IIRC.

    I'd prefer conventional lugs as I suspect they will more easily take a NATO. which would suit a watch like this.

    Happy to take it out on Sydney Harbour if someone can get it here. Possibly could take it skiing in the Snowy Mountains in August, too.

    I rather like that, too. IWC 3706 meets Sinn EZM10. Simple styling and great functionality.

    Interesting feedback. As I said, I am very tempted by a 1983 CWC RN Diver with the fat hands and lumed bezel, but it's too close to the SMP 2264 to justify having both together.

    Nah! It's overpriced by about £50. But perhaps I could let you have my '81 Fatboy, complete with provenance - issued to me in 1985 and used for Navigational duties - for less - say, £1600?
