  1. I'm not sure if it's highly persuasive or not,...

    I'm not sure if it's highly persuasive or not, but VIII has too much vertical stuff that means it isn't an 'instant read' for the brain. I know the Romans used it for 8, but given a couple of...

    I'm definitely in for a GTG as there are lots of people I really enjoyed chatting about watches with that I would really like to meet. And it's a brilliant way of figuring out how the Marine...

    I can see it's a mid-point prototype case. Bit dinged here and there, so clearly one I was playing with the metal alloys on before going standard 316L and the sapphire might have slightly too much...

    Quite a lot at around Euro 340 and direct from John at dangerous9straps to cut out the middleman. Tell him it's to fit the Field Engineer as he has the case and clasp jig and will shortcut his 12...
  5. That sounds about right. I'd weigh one for you,...

    That sounds about right. I'd weigh one for you, but mine is on the Teju strap. The Teju strap is actually a good 10 grams heavier than the previous Hirsch strap:

    Bracelet is 92 grams at full size (take 4.5 grams off per link removed to fit you wrist). Strap and clasp are 30.

    Hi Mike, What an excellent video, thank you very much. There's nothing better than free advertising. Cheaper than free actually because, as you noted in the video, you bought the watch you...

    There'll soon be a few more Field Engineer owners....

    I don't have any pics, honest, just a company I've been talking with and been to visit that will do it to the required standard and at a reasonable cost (which was darned hard to find). Bezel and...

    In accordance with the Marine Chronometer Co standard operating procedure (not annoying my wife), I need someone order one before I can make it. I think the partial gold (bezel, buttons, backplate)...
  11. I was talking to John on Friday of last week and...

    I was talking to John on Friday of last week and he mentioned he was a little snowed under at the moment, so it might be worthwhile trying him again once the christmas rush is over. Persistence is...

    Nope, I set the chronograph sweep at 7 seconds. Mike has clearly zero'd it, but then it is his watch. The golden brown strap really is very nice.
  13. Considering I set the time on Friday and Royal...

    Considering I set the time on Friday and Royal Mail delivered it today, then either you've got a lot of power reserve or more likely Royal Mail shook it about a lot!
  14. Really appreciate the nice things you said about...

    Really appreciate the nice things you said about the Field Engineer. Also JohnnyE for lending you his. Always loved subsea engineering, not just the travel, but the challenge of designing and...
  15. Given that only one Field Engineer lives in NI...

    Given that only one Field Engineer lives in NI (plus the serial number clue), that would be JohnnyE's; very nice of him! Full OO-spec, 775M2 and Teju strap, rather than mine which is somewhere in...
  16. I agree with you in that I think is just about...

    I agree with you in that I think is just about perfect at the moment. Mind you, a recent comment from someone that borrowed mine for a week was that the lume dulls a bit too quickly. The hands have...
  17. I love tight manufacturing tolerances! Hate...

    I love tight manufacturing tolerances! Hate sloppy tolerances that lead to, 'it might wiggle around a lot or it might not fit'.

    The Teju strap does come off, but I recommend a proper jeweller or...

    Hi Keith, pleased you like 150 and you've upped the anti now for Darius to get the same tuning on all future builds! Thanks for the nice words and it was equally good to meet and chat with yourself...

    When they told me they were ceasing current curved end production they did promise they would introduce a revised range. Haven't seen anything from them though, so not so sure

    I know you're not cheesed off Michael. At the moment the only person who appears to be is myself!
  21. I fully agree and appreciate the really good and...

    I fully agree and appreciate the really good and honest feedback; the first few production straps are simply not up to the fit, finish and standard of the prototypes, and are not good enough for the...
  22. John at Dangerous9 is always in demand, so...

    John at Dangerous9 is always in demand, so answering emails can take a while. The good thing is that he'll make and ship a Field Engineer teju strap within 30 days instead of his normal 11 to 12...
  23. Pure luck I think, but possibly due to a...

    Pure luck I think, but possibly due to a deliberate lack of colour and trying to keep everything as subtle and understated as possible. It's my 'in-house' style that you'll see on future models and...
  24. Yes and the sole reason I went floating rather...

    Yes and the sole reason I went floating rather than screw down. Screw down is better for guaranteeing water resistance, but you have a nice solid load path from outer case right to the heart of the...

    Good to see you bashed it on a door frame wombleh, and no doubt you'll be pleased with the 2 year no-quibble-fix-any-damage warranty that allows you to do just that. A new watch can be a bit like a...
