    Roughly how not cheap Eddie, 500 - 750, 750 to 1000, 1000+?

    I thought you'd kicked reserving numbers in to the long grass a while back, but if you're indulging us then...

    #67 if the numbering is across both dials, irrespective of colour.

    Otherwise #7, Moss's usual race number in...hmmm...white dial please.

    Watch will be £500, my AD tells me, plus an extra £1500 if you want to take it away from TZ Towers!

    Beyond ideas of good and bad, there is a field. I'll meet you there.

    I would say between 750 and 850 to keep it just below the cost of the Steinhart one.

    Cost always determines price, not what anyone else is selling theirs for. I always make them to a quality, not to a price.

    Whole chunks of my life come under the heading "it seemed like a good idea at the time".

    Both.

    Wearing the CAF as I type and I am afraid it might find itself being bested this time around.

    Nice to see it is a 40mm case rather than Steinhartís 42mm. Classic.

    Eddie: I assume the sub-dials on Version A are white, not silver (preferable)?

    Great news Eddie, looking forward to seeing real life pictures.

    Killing me here, with the Speedbird B and now this. So many watches such little time.....


    QUOTE=swanbourne;4815612]It may be 9 months before it's available because there's a 6 month lead time on movements.

    Slightly disappointed that the manual-wind lemania movement was not available (at an appropriate cost) to make it a little thinner.. but the Seiko NE88 is a good modern movement and the renders make the case proportions look right. Well done Eddie for taking this project forward.

    The only trepidation is availability. I can't buy a new rolex and now I probably can't buy a homage because they are too popular.

    No indicies outside the dial? Not necessarily bad but initially "odd" to my eyes.
