Thread: The Newmark 6BB Chronograph Re-Edition

  1. #201
    Number 124 has landed here (thanks for posting as agreed so it would land on a Tuesday Ewan, much appreciated). Superb packaging.

    First impression having just put it on - very nice, good size, well put together, I like it a lot, not keen on RAF Nato's myself, so it's currently on a Bond proper type Nato & looking good. I like the Nato stock number with 870 in, as I was born in August 1970 (tenuous I know, but I like it).

    It's making me smile when I glance at it, that's always a good sign.

    One thing that I had forgotten is it doesn't have a continuous running seconds hand, that caused a momentary "oh god it's stopped" moment when I first tool it out !

    Well done Ewan.

    Cheers

    Dave

    The Newmark 6BB Chronograph Re-Edition

    I much prefer the RAF strap to a NATO,but unexpectedly, itís the rather excellent cordura strap that itís currently on.

    No 126 has just arrived. Yes I expected the cordura to be the one of the three (grey and tan leather) I would like the least but that is the one it is on at the moment. Really like it and it is great value! Thanks Ewan.

    No 13 landed and I have to say, it's stunning. Despite best efforts I don't think that anyone has managed to really do it justice in their photos. Dial, hands, case and straps all exceed expectations, even after reading this thread.

    And the turbine is a nice personal legacy piece.

    Congratulations Ewan. It's superb, and my colleagues are very envious!

    Great combination, what strap is it and where from?

    In terms of the basic package, Iíve tried several strap combinations with the Newmark, including a leather NATO, two-piece leather, regular NATOís and have concluded that the basic grey RAF strap it comes with suits it the best.

    However, a grey Eulit perlon comes in at a very close 2nd for me. Like the RAF strap, itís very comfortable and will make a nice alternative for the summer months.

    Does anyone know if Ewan will be selling the Cordura strap as an accessory?

    That looks very much like the Timefactors Two Piece Nylon in coyote brown - I like the look of that and I'd order it right now for mine if Eddie wasn't closed to ordering until Tuesday next week

    No 300, first time I've been able to get to the depot. What a fine watch, lovely precise detailing, and gorgeous curved acrylic. Straight on the leather which is equally fine. Well done Ewan.

    Of course it's nice and comfortable to. Can't remember where I bought it from though.

    The Off-White does look really nice - and I hope you produce it.

    To be honest though, when I can order one, I'll be ordering the Black Dial - mainly because I think the numbers will be easier to read by 'glancing at' plus it's more historical.

    :-)

    Got mine today - delighted with it.

    Thanks to Ewan for bringing such a great watch back 👍

  24. #224
    I've had mine 2 weeks now & it still raises a grin when I look at it. It's a really lovely thing.
    Good size too, just slides under a cuff nicely but still feels substantial.
    I look forward to the next Newmark.
    Dave

    I feel the same, really very pleased with it. Nice size and the acrylic crystal really suits it.

    Yes!

    Yup, just got one. I was going to sign up for the kickstarter, but when it happened I could not commit. I know it is now a bit more, but as observed by Ewan on the Facebook page, he is actually going to start making a profit on them! And it comes with two straps, of which I'm growing too liking the khaki cordura more and more.


    Or maybe a NATO Bond... or a mesh... or?

    It’s a lovely watch. The attention to detail is very good, especially the radial brushing on the case which I’ve tried to highlight in the last photo.

    Thank you Ewan!

    Mine arrived yesterday, have put it on a Eichmuller strap from my spares box. Very pleased with the watch, even at full price.

    Really pleased with my 6BB

    I managed to scratch the glass- fixed in 5 mins with Polywatch! Back to spec, shows the practicality of a plexi as well as the Ďwarmí image it gives

    Got Mine while at the GP Surgery having My BP checked 066 arrived and on My wrist plus a really fabulous gesture by Ewan He very kindly included a Speedbird strap in the package initial impressions Wow My Wife also commented on how clear the dial was I remember this watch as My QFI Pat Lander wore one issued to Him when He flew Vulcans I owe Pat a lot He made Me the Pilot I am today and He was ans still is one hell of a Pilot.Ewan if You're reading this,fabulous service and really love this I may end up buying the Aerotimer as well as its a really lovely dial/bracelet combo.

  39. #239
    Quick update its a bit smaller than most of My watches but is soooo very comfortable and everytime I glance at My wrist it reminds Me of Pat Lander,"Gilani don't pull the power back watch your Airspeed,that's it",oh My how I miss those days the other thing that has impressed Me is the Lume which is brilliant all in all Ewan and Eddie(For the Aerotimer)You guys rock.

    #059 arrived in Rome, Italy today! I ordered in Friday afternoon and it arrived this morning!
    Amazing service and the watch is truly very very nice. I prefer it over the CWC re-issue I had and sold previously!
    Great job Ewan!

    Thanks !

    Hi all

    Lots of really positive stuff about the 6BB on this thread which makes it all worthwhile - thank you!

    We're down to less than a handful now which I guess is a good sign!

    Once again, many thanks to you all :-)

    Cheers

    Ewan

    Was watching an old war film last night (they who dare) and when they synchronised watches, they were all Newmark's! Made me smile and think of my new watch and then this thread so I could post this drivel which I found interesting but everyone else will think is boring :)
