    I thought I’d see if I could buy one today. Closed again.

    Ordered a Bund from Steveo, arrived within a few days and is really very comfortable and sets the watch off nicely

    Nice! It does suit a brown leather strap. Was looking at one of the timefactor ones.

    I had originally had it fitted to one of Eddies black bunds but wanted something more heavy duty and pliable, hence the Steveo

    Looks good! Steveo also has a nice brown leather NATO which might look quite nice on the 18

    I have just acquired 70, first impressions are good, very tidy a lot of watch for the money.

    sits a bit high and the bezel clicks aren’t as ‘sharp’ as I would like.

    A fine looking watch

    Mine just arrived and I love it. First precista as well. Great gesture to set the time correctly before shipping!!

    The matt look and case shape look great. Very light and comfortable.

    Already looking at more straps for this one so this thread helps.

    Great watch, did you get it via the "bulk buy" the Dutch Horlogeforum initiated?

    Eddie's even more famous now in the Netherlands ;)
    Got a new watch, divers watch it is, had to drown the bastard to get it!

    Had mine for about six weeks now, set the time when it arrived using my Junghans radio control as the reference and so far they remain totally in sync, no appreciable gain or loss with the PRS; the COSC certificate implied fantastic performance so I shouldnt be surprised but I am. Its a great watch for the money and on the Steveo BUND leather that I bought for it, wears really comfortably.

    That is a great combination. How did you get the Union Jack on there? Did you sew it on yourself??

    Thanks.

    The strap was from Watch Obsession: https://www.watchobsession.co.uk/col...buckle-keepers

    I bought it to see how I liked the central stripe before going for one of Erika’s straps. As it happens, I like it a lot!

    Borealis strap just arrived. Looks great and very comfortable! Hard to choose between this and the green MN but lugholes make it so easy to swap :-)
