    Thanks for the kind words, I posted that as a quick video showing the silky smooth sweep of the movement, there is only one way to appreciate this watch and that is to wear it, then you will know just how good this piece is. Hopefully someone will be along soon with a nice review that can describe it far better than I can.

    Sorry for my tongue in cheek way of asking for more - I do appreciate your efforts!

    Thanks for uploading both videos, looks a cracking watch. I think I saw talk of a 36mm version hopefully arriving before Christmas which I can't wait for.

    Honestly its not a problem, I would speak as well but that might not be such a good idea, after I posted the second attempt I thought it would have been good to show the sliding clasp action and the end link detail inside or the engraving on the caseback...

    well at least the AR coating comes out well lol...

    Very well done and thank you very much for posting, the question is can I hold on for the 36mm?

    The 36mm is not that far away now, hang on in there just a while longer, and while you are thinking about it...

    Just over two weeks on, and now on leather. Really happy with the accuracy of this piece, lost about 7s in just over two weeks.

    I used to own a Mark one and loved it, the only downside (for me) was the bracelet, the size was not a massive issue but the thought of a 36mm is very exciting

    The big question is do I wait for the smaller one or go for the new larger version now? I am really torn! How long can I wait is a big factor (I am a impatient child)

    As long as it's still coming, must admit I believed Eddie was not doing a white faced version at one point, so content to watch and wait now.

    I think Eddie said maybe before Xmas, maybe in the New Year.

    Perhaps if you took out the word 'report' .... But, then again, perhaps not.

    Even if a consignment were to arrive today it would make sense to wait until after the turn of the year to make them available, rather than risk posting them in the miasma of parcels that is currently pervading the UK, and probably the world at large.

    Ordered 2pm Wed and on my wrist by 10am Thursday. What more could one want? Thank you, Eddie.
    I had the first version and passed it on. This is a very significant improvement to what was a very nice watch. The improved bracelet really works with this one. The dial changes (incl darker black and longer, thinner hands?) all make this really beautiful.

    Just had an update on the 36mm version. It's due to be shipped 2 weeks today so it's unlikely that it will be available for sale in time for Christmas. Great start to the New Year though :-)

    Thanks a lot Eddie for the update, it will be a good way to start the new year.

    Concerning the riveted bracelet, it will be available already on the 36mm or anyway it will be separately available always at the beginning of the new year ?

    Best regards.

    Thanks for the update Eddie, I look forward to purchasing in January 2019.

    Any chance you can order extra riveted bracelets for the folks to purchase for 36m black version vs. white? Can you repost the white dialed version (it will be available after the 36m black version, correct?

    Excellent news.
    The money will stay in the bank for this.

    Great news! And I’ll be eagerly checking back in case it is in time, so I can take it on holiday over NY!

    Thanks for the update.
    Now, it's just a question of which version, the large or small?

    I'm looking forward to the 36mm version, and the white dial version in particular. I'm still baffled as to how I missed the release of the Air Ministry watch, which looks an absolute belter.

    Hey all — Long time lurker and admirer of Eddie’s stuff. A few questions:

    1. Did we decide on what clasp will come with the 36mm black dial?

    2. Can we order without the bracelet if we just want to wear it on a NATO?

    3. Any hints on price?

    I am guessing the answer is no to all three.
