    I always felt £245 was astonishingly good value for the old PRS-25 when I bought mine, so I am pleasantly surprised that the price has been kept so low with the upgraded parts. Definitely looking forward to the 36mm.

    Sorry if this question has been answered before.

    When will the 36mm case be available?

    Budget has been busted for the year, so hopefully I can grab one in Q1 next year or if I sell some pieces. Some big visual improvements and looks really lovely Eddie. Cracking job and will fit well into my Timefactor collection at some point.

    Almost tempted to buy one so I can compare when the 36mm comes out. Looks beautiful Eddie.

    I am genuinely delighted for you, despite the logistical constraints it generates.
    Well deserved recognition of great designs at an honest price.

    Congratulations Eddie. Its a fantastic looking piece. Even better that its actually 40mm diameter. Very attractive price too. Im sure you will sell out of your first run quick.

    Warning though. Make sure you produce enough of the 36mm version. I suspect they will fly off the shelf.

    Interesting to see peopleís outlook... delayed vs instant gratification.

    Iíve ordered one to be shipped to Nova Scotia in Canada. So I expect it will take a while and with our current postal strikes over here ... likely even longer. Yet Iím okay with that as Iím not about instant gratification. I wonder if people who want to know when it will be shipped are more pro instant gratification then the longer term rewards.

    Nonetheless... very excited about seeing the watch. Buying wasnít easy... self inflicted of course... time hasnít changed over here yet and I forgot about that ... until I woke up at 03:30 to place an order only to work out five minutes later that I was an hour early. Set the alarm for another 50 minutes and back to sleep.

    I've shipped one to Nova Scotia today (along with the shipping surcharge because UPS regard it as a "remote location".) Postal strikes shouldn't affect UPS delivery.

    It's an interesting one, I bought a PRS-29AM on day one and won't see it until I return to the UK in December but that doesn't bother me in the slightest. That's a normal situation for me so I suppose I'm just used to it and quite enjoy the anticipation.

    That 36mm could be very tempting...

    I've been out of touch with the hobby for a few months but this has brought my interest right back.
    Glad to have been in a position to order first thing this morning before the window closed!
    This will be one of very few watches that have passed through my hands that isn't a diver, can't wait for it to get here now

    Has anyone noticed that the dial is a blacker black yet? It's what the manufacturer calls "velvet black".

    Yes. Unfortunately I was too late to get a rivet bracelet fitted. He said that it should be ready for the middle of Decmber so I asked him yesterday if he cold fit it with the rivet bracelet and he said "bracelet already made, the watches should be ready at the end of this month".

    If it sells well, I'll get it fitted to the next batch. Here's what the bracelet looks like.

    No other reason than your post reminded of a song I really like.

    Farewell to Nova Scotia
    And your sea bound coast
    Let your mountains dark and dreary be
    When I am far away on the
    Briney oceans tossed
    Will you ever heave a sigh
    Or a wish for me

    Gordon Lightfoot or Ian and Sylvia

    It looks like a good bracelet thatís being suggested for a second batch . The fact the centre link pivots instead of being fixed is a great plus in my eyes .

    I had a look at this when it first came out but it's phenomenally expensive.
