    Really excited about this potential model! It would be good to see which variation of the 'Smiths' logo works best.

    With the other logo... maybe it makes it to close to Rolex original? But it does look really nice!

    That would be very tempting!

    Interesting how those hands are not touching the index markers but on your 1016 they do.

    Curious about the max wrist size for the metal bracelet.

    Iím going to purchase one (hopefully). For my father. I was showing him a few watches I was hoping to buy soon and he said that if possible he would love to have one if I was able to purchase two. The thing is he has big wrists... so Iím curious what is the max wrist size that the bracelet will fit?

    I have an 8.5" wrist and usually have to remove 2 or 3 links for a good fit, I think it was 5 or 6 links for the Dreadnought.

    As forums go it can at times be a 'rough ride' as we have very little moderation, however the knowledge available about watches and pretty much anything else life can throw at you is immense, enjoy your stay.

    Itís considerably larger than the Zeno. Iíve had both and found one too small and one too big! Weíre a picky bunch.

    I'm wondering if /hoping that the change to a saphire crystal and smaller case size will act to dampen the sound of the movement which is sometimes noticeable in the original everest.

    Won't the 36mm version be pretty close in size, though? I think that's what the new fella's on about.

    WOW!

    I purchased a Spitfire a 2 or 3 years ago (does not receive enough wrist time!) and decided to check up on what Eddie has in the product pipeline yesterday, wow a 36mm Smith's Explorer (+ beautiful automatic chrono)! I never pulled the trigger on 39mm Smith Explorer (I did not like the look of the minute markers on the dial), this checks all the correct boxes. I can not wait for this to become available.

    The Zeno has a particularly tall acrylic crystal which unbalances the watch in my opinion. Iím looking forward to some shots of Eddieís new 36 to see how his turns out!

    Not to mention the rather worrying QA issues that Zeno has with the NOS AS movements that they are using at the moment.

    Having tried the old Everest and found it way too big, and experiencing a number of faults with ZEX's which I find to be the ideal size - this latest incarnation looks ideal.

    The original PRS-25 was made with that case size and dial design so as not to be yet another Explorer clone. From 25/11/2011 . . . "It was never intended to be an exact copy, just share a bit of the DNA :wink: Eddie" .

    Having said that I do like this new version.

    Just checked to satisfy my curiosity and the Zex is 14mm thick. The Everest is going to be 11mm. So Eddieís new incarnation sounds like itís going to be spot on.

    And in consequence should wear much better on a strap then the ZEX

    Glad I checked this thread out. Last time I looked the new Everest was due to be bigger. This is spot on for what I want and should stop me blowing 2 grand on a BB36. When should it be available?

    I believe the Everest in production/assembly has been stated to be 36mm case to crown.

    I wasnít aware there were two version being produced... where did you read that?

    Eddie had already sent the 41mm into production some time ago. If you look at the earlier parts of the thread. Then a few fans (myself included) started asking for a 36mm version and Eddie tinkered with it and said it would be ready by Christmas (hopefully). I actually spoke to him by phone back in August and he said (at least as far as my memory serves me) that he was making both.

    On Page 2 of this thread he shows the prototype and on page 3 he states it will be ready (hopefully) by September.

    So unless he cancelled production in favor of the 36mm i would expect there to be 2 versions.

    Brilliant and thank you for the reply.

    I misread and assumed the 41 was then changed to only a 36. My father was keen on getting one but I wasnít sure if it would be too small... apparently him and Eddie have similar sized wrists.

    I just discovered this thread and I read that the new Everest will be available in 36 mm with upgraded specs (sapphire first of all) !

    Another watch to buy ! If just the bracelet would taper from 20mm to 16mm, but I know that you can not have everything in life ...

    That's because the new clasp iosn't available in 16mm, 18mm is the smallest.

    Thanks a lot Eddie anyway, it is a stunning watch and I'm pretty sure I'll buy it.

    When it will be available (I need to fund also your "new" PRS-29 watch in the meantime) ?

    Best regards,
