    I bought a lovely Gold Plated Smiths Astral (from 1966), with a lovely diagonal linen dial from Ebay, and then got it fully serviced by one of the better Smiths...

    That is a great range, should keep everyone happy.
    I think it is the yellow for me, such a sunny, happy colour (in contrast to the rest of my collection's dials).

    This is their third Brashear LE watch. The last one was 2000 units, this is the same.
    That's not an LE, it is a range.

    With TF's burgeoning reputation I would have guessed a re-issue of the 3 would make sense this year, as CWC seem to want to charge a very large amount more, without improving the specification.
