    Oh those look great. I like both.

    Are they thicker than the last model?

    Agree with this. Three face looks the complete package. Another winner!

    The three subdials are really cool.

    I thought the two sub-dial one would be for me but the three takes it after seeing these photos.
    There’s too much empty space in the lower half of the face on the two sub-dial version to me.

    I think the twin dial would look better with an extended marker, like at the 12 position to fill the gap.

    Yep Eddie, still highest on my list and glad I didn't "pull the trigger" on an earlier model.

    The three counter version looks finger licking good!
    Got a new watch, divers watch it is, had to drown the bastard to get it!

    Quick snap of the prototype, didn't have time to set the light tent and lights up.

    Thats not bad at all. Do you know the length of the upper surface, before the downward slope begins?

    Looking good, has the case grown at all to accommodate a chrono?

    Despite having 3 sub-dials the watch looks uncluttered and legible.

    Think that's the one for me. Was going to get the automatic then liked the bicompax better but this one works very well.

    Will all 3 versions be relesed at the same time? Thinking more about the auto version now.

    The auto version will be available in April, the chrono versions haven't got the green light yet.

    Does the NE15 movement fit the original quartz PRS-40 case?

    Love the chronos - can't decide between 2 or 3 dials though.

    Looking good. Didn't notice from the plans that it would have a white second hand. Nice touch.

    There are no velcro straps, the manufacturer has discontinued it.

    I'd go with an RAF pattern NATO (i.e. one without the extra strip) or a perlon.

    You can buy 22mm Eulit Perlons if you look around. Also wears well on a circumcises TF grey Nato if you want to keep it is low profile as possible.

    I have a 6.75" wrist and it didnt look too big at all. The profile of the slim case kind of wraps around your wrist. A conventional NATO makes it wear bigger.

    Im looking forward to the quartz chrono - so long as the case isnt too thick!
