    Dear Eddie and UPS,
    WOW!

    I like everything about it, even the clasp. Few sharp edges I'd like to buff down a bit but it's a winner.

    Sharp edges? On the case or bracelet (or both)?

    That does look great - can you post some lume shots?

    Lume on the new Speedbird III is excellent! Mind you, the minute hand is a bit thicker than the old Speedbird's. This thing glows and lasts as good as my old Omega SMP Bond did.

    Sharp edges on the clasp really, edge of bracelet just a tad. I am terrible with lume shots but I see someone stepped up.

    New clasp fits well to the new Speedbird


    My Sellita SW200-1 runs +2.5 spd for now. Well within the top grade specs

    PRS-1 dial Speedbird III just arrived. It's been awhile since I've had a watch on a bracelet -- this is a very serious piece of hardware!

    On a Damasko leather strap. Nice slim fit but I like the bracelet best I think.

    Bracelet sized and on the wrist. Very comfortable.

    I'm not a big bracelet guy, and I started wearing it with a Speedbird RAF strap. But the bracelet is so great I put it back on.

    The twin, narrow faceted links look really great. The extender/adjuster piece works really well, and i can work it with one hand without much difficulty. The comfort and build quality are really outstanding, especially considering the price.

    It's not perfect, though. The clasp housing on the non-extender end has some fit and finish issues: much sharper edges than extender end, and the end link doesn't quite clear the top of the underside when rotating. I was able to address both of these issues with a small whetstone, some masking tape, and about 30 minutes of work. If I'd paid 10-times as much for the watch, I'd be a bit disappointed. As it is, it gave me some extra DIY satisfaction.

    Overall, it's the best bracelet watch I've owned.

    (I'm very proud of my recent avatar promotion. I've always thought of myself as "Dalek in the streets, Klytus between the sheets" kinda guy.)
