    That looks a good fit, always thought this one would wear well due to the (relatively) low case and downturned lugs. Your wrist looks quite flat and oval (which is obviously good!).

    I'm pretty sure that the slimmer-wristed owners will be confirming that the Voyager doesn't feel too large on them. ;-)

    Even with an 8" wrist (I seem to have some long-standing bursitis or the like - my left wrist is thicker than the right [and I'm right-handed!]) I find watches of 50mm lug to lug and over too big - I don't like it when they stick out. I suppose some thinner wrists are broader.

    I have a 7.5 inch wrist and with 6 links removed (yes 6!) it fits perfectly.

    a very nice watch , but this pic really shows the colour difference between the 12 marker and the min/24 hands (which is what put me off buying one).

    Are they supposed to match then?

    i have no idea , tho there was some conversation about them and the fact eddie could not get the same colours done as far as i remember , personally if im paying almost 1k for a watch i'd like them to match (the same way that if i bought a pair of socks i'd like them to match) , this is just my opinion on this small detail tho and it obviously has not put sales off - as i said its a great watch.

    You might like them to match but where has it ever been said that they were supposed to match? Dial and hands are two completely separate elements.

    I think some folk might have come to that conclusion based on the discussion in the Dreadnought GMT thread. I think you may have said something along the lines that you could not live with the orange hands being a different colour to the 12 marker on the sample you received back in July. To be fair too, the gif thingie at the top of the page also suggests the colours should match.

    Perhaps the 'gif thingie' at the top of the page will soon be changed.

    See you're spoilt, it's all black in the UK, or a very, very, very dark green at best!

    You can always print off a copy of the GIF thingy if you prefer that.

    Classic!!

    Hope all you lucky owners are enjoying your Voyagers, unfortunately didn't land until 1206 on Saturday so by the time I'd shut down and got the iPad out the first batch were already gone.

    Fingers crossed for the next release.

    In real life there is hardly any perceptual difference and certainly absolutely nothing that should stop you ordering 1, it is beautiful.

    Sadly mine has to go back in the case and on to to Father Christmas for a surprise belated 21st present for my son Max who wanted a TW Steel which I refused to spend £500 on so I hope he likes it (or not as the case may be :-) )

    I don't much mind one way or the other - it's not a watch for me whatever the colour of the hands. I was just suggesting a possible answer to the question you posed.

    You lose blue around 60m and with a pic I took of the original DN at 109m it was pretty much black.

    Back on topic: this is one of my favourite shots of the trip, not of the Voyager particularly but of the juvenile Lionfish. Itís probably only a day-old and as such a rare sighting:




    It took a good half-hour for it to gain enough confidence to allow me to approach, but even at that age it was intrigued enough to be attracted to the watch.

    Fantastic picture and nice back story as well! Hopefully I can snag a Voyager in the next round!

    You're the first one to post a pic with the rubber strap on! Makes a much better fit IMO.

    It does look great on rubber; an Isofrane would be perfect.

  39. #39
    Isofrane - Good suggestion. It's actually very comfortable on the rubber and looks superb on both supplied straps. Well done to Eddie for creating such a masterpiece!

    I don't now nor ever have owned or even seen "in the steel" either the original or new GMT Dreadnoughts, but only their images in the many photographs put up of them here at TZ-UK and at the TF website. However, after reading the comments as to the DN-GMT's hand/dial colour matching, I did notice that the PRS-21 in RLE's photo above, and the original PRS-2 in Wildheart's photo above, both show their respective hand colouring to be a slightly deeper and richer hue of the same colour as their respective dial's 12 o'clock hour marker. To say it another way, each version has hands "more orange" or "more yellow" respectively.

    Put in still other words, I think it's the nature of the Dreadnought as to that particular detail, and viewing both Wexford's and Barton Red's photos below, it certainly seems like the slight variegation in shade would work just fine for me >

    Please Note: It is possible that Griswold may know nothing whatsoever about horology. It's even possible that he has never even owned a watch. It is also highly possible the he has a strange imagination. His wife insists he would be far better off paying more attention to taking his medication on time.

    That's quite a photograph, Ralphy. As good as the DN-GMT looks in it, you are right that it's your little Lionfish friend that steals the show --- its pectoral fins are beautiful and remind me that birds are in a sense just swimming in a much less viscous sea.

    In fact, to look at that cute little critter, one wouldn't think it could grow into "THE FISH THAT ATE FLORIDA" > http://www.lionfishhunters.org/
