    Whole chunks of my life come under the heading "it seemed like a good idea at the time".

    Looks great, the DN was the watch that led me here. Sadly I don't think I've got man enough wrists for one....or the bank balance right now.

    So here's my shift pattern so you know when to release it.
    This week 1400-2200, so in the morning would be good.
    Next week 0600-1400, so anytime after 1500 is OK for me.

    Thanks.
    Looks great BTW. Hopefully my girlish wrist can handle it.

    I was planning on ignoring the Voyager and concentrating on the Smiths Diver but after seeing these pics....

    I strangely hope it's too expensive for me

    The best things come to those who wait, we have waited and this is the best TF watch yet! It is everything I was hoping for and more. The original DN is an icon but I am a GMT man so this is the ultimate for me. Eddie make lots! I have to have one!!!

    This. Because even though it's not a limited edition you can bet that loads of people will snap this up just to leave it in a drawer hoping to cash in later

    Anyone remember which movement this is? (the hidden questions is, is it a traveller's GMT, or an office GMT?)

    I'm probably the only one interested, but.... Any chance to see a picture of it on a NATO strap? I remember trawling the net for pix of the original Dreadnought on a NATO and found very few, I guess everyone likes the bracelet, but I can never get on with them. The watch looks lovely though, I like the red dot at 12. Would have preferred the GMT hand to be red also though, but each to their own.

    This isn't quite the watch for me personally but it is very easy to see why so many are going wild over this one, just as with the original TF Dreadnought. And from the latest rear view picture, I noticed that these are going to have screwed lugbars. I wanted to comment because I think these are an optimum choice for many buyers in having nearly the security of military specification fixed lugbars (provided you insure the threaded parts stay put with a bit of Blue Loc-Tite or clear women's nail polish when reinstalling the bars after each strap, etc., change) while allowing easy use and interchange of standard design (i.e. closed-end) straps and metal bracelets.

    My own preference is still strongly for ("reliable as a rock") classic mil spec fixed lugbars on watches like the PRS-29A, but it is very obvious even to me that fixed lugbars are not the best or most appropriate option for every watch because they do restrict one's strap choices to open-end and one-piece types while forcing those wanting a metal bracelet to search for very exclusive types possibly not even available anymore. Considering that, I think the screwed lugbars are absolutely perfect, and harmonically so, for the new and admittedly very beautiful DN-GMT

    This has to be the world's longest tease.... but I am strangely enjoying it... well worth the fuss for a great 4-hander. Bring it on!

    Question: weren't the minute and gmt hands supposed to match the orange 12hour marker like on the clock at the top of the forum?

    I think that looks great, regardless of whether it is office GMT or not. My understanding is that it is the only option, unless you are Rolex, if you want an auto GMT. Can't think of a suitable alternative movement.

    May I ask one question? The front view looks as if you can see the edge of a light tent (for the photo), and the edge looks straight.

    I have looked at the case drawing again, and the crystal is not shown.

    Is the crystal domed, or flat?

    Thanks
    D

    To be quite honest there are very pictures that do this watch justice. I fell in love it it when I tried on Toshi's at a watch meet. On the wrist it has precence. It is totally unique. On leather or on its bracelet it is simply outstanding. I wish all that are going for the GMT luck. I am very happy with mine and will stand aside in the rush to get one, as mine is all I need.

    rolex is not the only traveller gmt: omega did one with modified 2892, but they were the only one to use such movement. also seiko has traveller gmt. i believe that are other options, if at an higher price than the rolex

    Just tried to get on the Timefactors website only for it not to load and I thought it must be due to the influx of web traffic because the DN GMT was on sale. 5 minutes of frantic refreshing later and no such luck.

    Damn

    Try to refresh your cache and take the 'l' out of 'html' at the end of "index.html" if that is in the address-bar; the website has been changed; e.g. try http://www.timefactors.com or http://www.timefactors.com/dreadnought.htm

    Got up early (really wanted a CAF), saw this on the forum, decided on both. Been refreshing ever since.

    Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

    Really hoping this one is outrageously expensive. Too nice to pass up if it is reasonable.

    Another long-time lurker here and DN coveter. I've regretted for years not buying a DN when I had the chance. The GMT looks amazing...Nice work!

  48. #298
    Oh how I ache for this to become available.

    This said, it'll make for an expensive few weeks. I'm expecting my CAF tomorrow and am keenly eyeing a couple of fancy straps...
