    Nothing wrong with an AM/PM indicator.

    That is a pretty silly comment.
    It is a chronograph movement with 60 secs on the central hand, 60 mins on the 9 o'clock sub-dial and a slave 24 hour indicator on the 3 o'clock subdial.
    No-one suggested it was a gmt, but the hand and sub-dial for 24hr indication are there nonetheless.
    Eddy has chosen to colour it as an am/pm dial, which is fine, but it is also perfectly valid to colour it as a day/night one, especially as the yellow chosen is perhaps a sunshine colour.
    The fact that the 50 fathoms uses a horizontal rad half circle indicator might lend weight to that, but not necessarily.

    Well, Dave, thank you for putting me right.
    Itís a shame you felt inclined to call my post silly just because it differed from your opinion but we are in the wrong part of the forum to tell you exactly how much I value it.
    Good day to you.
    Well, everybody in Casablanca has problems. Yours may work out.

    My intention was not to "put you right"
    However, your one-sentence response totally failed to capture the potential subtlety of the design, and felt a lot more like a "Told you so" addendum to Eddie's post.

    So i thought i would explain more thoroughly. It is also a shame if you think i need some type of keyboard lashing a la mode du BP as a result of using one adjective, but i am not sure my response needs apologising for, so i won't.

    Looks great! And I like the colored subdial

    Hello

    I do like the look of this!

    A quick question, will it have drilled lugs like the Prs50B for example and can i just check if the lug width is 20 or 22mm.

    Probably already been covered but i am a borderline simpleton.

    Price will be a decider for me, but I might go for this.
