    It arrived earlier than expected:



    Most EB watches have specs that mean they'd be too big for my 'average' wrists, but the Tyneham at 41mm was worth a punt and I'm quite impressed so far.

    The rubber strap is super comfy and the whole package looks and feels tough enough to handle the ongoing corona crisis.

    Ah, now that would explain why I can't see it on their website. Thank you.

    Their LEs for some reason always come on leather straps that are only suitable for 7.5Ē+ wrists. So the straps always stay in the box sadly

    Thanks

    That is lovely, I don't usually like Roman numerals and sub-second dials but that comes together nicely. Must have taken a bit of effort to track down. Congratulations.

    Thanks Tony, I lapped it up! Just got the IWC paperwork for a service in 2014, since when it has slept in a safe. Itís running within a few seconds per day currently.

    Strange that the strap was mounted the wrong way round but I've seen this on a few reviews. Odd.

    When I was in the Seiko boutique they explained it was Japanese tradition/politeness to have the strap pointing inwards (to your own body) rather than outwards

    Indeed - the same with all the GS's I've had that have been on leather (and I've stopped changing them around now).

    that's shaved stingray. normally it has a pebbled texture, and shaving it gives the look you see there, which makes it somewhat shiny

    Itís a pretty cool watch on the wrist tbh. Totally different to my other watches.
    Iíd recommend trying one if you can get one for a decent price.

    The Incoming / New Arrival Thread

    I thought my buying was slowing down somewhat, but this has been blinking with increased ferocity on my radar for a long time now, so decided to go for it, particularly as I had moved on a couple watches recently... well, that's the excuse and justification!

    Couldn't be more pleased. Wonderful size, lovely slightly domed crystal and chunky winder. It sits nicely flat on the wrist now, having substituted the quite thick and stiff OE strap for one of Eddie's NATOs.

    Had it on the wrist for a couple of days now and it is returning an excellent +2secs/day. Along with my 861 Speedy Pro, it's nice to have another hand wind in the collection!

    I'm looking for a new watch and have been through this whole thread. So many beautiful watches. My favourites now are the Omega moonwatch and the Breitling B01 42..Difficult choice and will have to try on first. By the time I can do that I may have changed my mind again. :)

    Itís an interesting piece. Is it based on an old model or is it a new creation?

    That might be a great ideea because as many might know by now....when it's small ...well...it's small...but when it's longer there are some solutions :)

    A birthday gift today from Mrs HP. Really enjoying taking in the details. Trying to decide whether to keep on leather or size the bracelet? I think I'll keep as is for now...

    Not a brand that gets much - if any - love on this forum, but I've had a hankering for an Armand Nicolet J09 mk3 since they appeared a year or so ago.
    The design straddles the sports/dress remit very nicely to my eye, and I especially like the textures employed on the dial.
    Somewhat to my surprise they showed-up on T.K. Maxx's website (along with the sportier JS9 diver), at a very sane price, so an order has been placed and I now pray that for once Hermes will actually do the job for which they are paid...

    They look really smart. Good price too.

    I also quite like that TK Max recommended a shirt to go with it...
