    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.

    Great job Eddie - this is so close to being everything I want - the 251.264 movement with quickset hour and resettable, lumed chrono hands AND a lumed bezel.

    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.

    A bit of a toss up between that and an EZM1.1 though I have already got a Lemania 5100 Fortis B-42 LE...

    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.

    Incidentally, I...

    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?

    Err, if the first order starts with a 6 and the last order ends with a 2 then the total number of orders ends with a 7.

    So that should be 567, not 566, Eddie. Many congratulations!
