    Comparing the two by flicking back and forth I think the 18mm opening has the more classic line and keeps the face prominent on the overall design - this is important if the hand set remains to the original proportions. My opinion of course.

    I've decided it should be 36mm with 20mm lugs.

    Agreed. Hands are definitely too short. And a longer counterbalance on the seconds hand would be nice... Come on, Eddie, you know it makes sense!

    The minute hand, I'll agree. But still needs another mm on the hour hand with same on the seconds hand counterbalance. Then we can talk about perfection.

    Other than that it looks very nice although I would love to see it with the old Smiths De Luxe logo and Everest in white letters.

    Totaly agree with you! The old-school Smiths Deluxe logo would be awesome. But either way i will definitely order!

    So when in the dark the hands shrink? That's a complication I haven't seen before!

    But seriously, what an excellent watch it will be. If I didn't have an Explorer and an Everest already...

    Eddie. can you confirm on the original 1016 did the bracelet taper from 20mm to 16mm or 20mm to 18mm?
