Thread: PRS-25 Everest 36mm update

  1. #801
    I think, as with most others, Iíll be waiting for the new handed and braceleted black model!

The clasp is too big, the edges are too sharp and frankly itís badly made. Iíve also had three of the link screws unscrew by themselves.

    Other than that the Everest 36 is my favourite watch to date in terms of fit, aesthetics and value. It looks so good on a bracelet but for now I have it on a nylon strap. The watch would be improved with a dateless movement and better proportioned hands, all these problems will be rectified on the white Everest I believe.

    Upgraded movement, if any, proportioned hands and new oyster bracelet should be reflected also on the black dial model.

    By upgraded I just mean the dateless version of the 9015 the 9039.

    Will that make any difference to performance or anything else? Thinking of buying the current model

    Eddie said it is a dateless version of the miyota 9015, no performance difference from what iíve heard.

    I've wound mine manually through 48 hours and couldn't hear any change over in the movement at 12/24 hrs, there really won't be a problem with buying the current model. As far as the hands go, it's purely aesthetic and subjective. I've also owned the original 40mm model since it's release and never had a problem with that.

    I had my hands replaced, there is a big colour difference between them and the indices but they match the logo and outer most markings in colour.

    I also tried to retro fit my sarb035 bracelet which worked surprisingly well the end links are a little loose I canít notice anything once on my wrist.

    I havenít seen anyone else mention it in this thread but is the lume too green? I think white indices would make the watch look a lot better although lume isnít important to me.

    After doing this work just to get the intricacies of the watch how I want them it still seems a little out of whack a bit like a frankenwatch. If it is reissued with all these problems rectified I think I would get the reissue and gift my old one to a friend, If not iíd just keep it.

    Sorry for a long whining post, just wanted to know if others felt the same way and what Eddie was thinking about the reissue.

    The bracelet seems to work a treat, not sure if I could live with the different colour of the new hands perhaps they look less obvious in real life?
    I hope the new version will tick a few more boxes for you

    Is this referring also to the new version of the black dial PRS25 36mm, with adjusted hands ?
    Thanks

    This is primarily about the bracelet. If it's suitable, I will be ordering all 3 versions of the Everest and extra bracelets. I have very few of the 36mm blackdial Everest remaining now and expect to sell out well before the new stock is available.

    I'd say everything about those hands is absolutely spot on (and a big improvement on the original) with the single exception of the lume colour. Have you thought of getting them re-lumed?

    Thanks Eddie for the clarification, so I assume that the new PRS25 36 mm black dial version will have also the resized minute and hour hands, in addition to the riveted oyster 20 ->16 mm bracelet.

    We remain waiitnf for the picture of this new bracelet !

    Is there a rough date for the availability of the new stock?

    I thought that it didn't have a date complication.

    On second thoughts...………….

    1st post. Hi all :)

    Just wanted to say thank you to our host for the truly excellent watch - incredibly well executed, with this indefinable gem like quality in the hand!

    Luckily I already had the perfect bracelet for it.
    Cheers all.

    Saying hi

    Hi there to all. New to the forum. I'm from Spain and recently got a second hand, but basically new, Smiths Everest PRS-25 36mm. Although I was doubting about the size, the watch is really growing on me. Hope to share some images soon as I like to take pictures. It's a great watch. Don't like the clasp of the bracelet much, but I'm using it with a nato and now with a leather strap. It's amazing watch and, btw, very accurate. As a matter of fact, from the automatics I have the most accurate one (-1,1 s a day).

    I want to congratulate Eddie for his work. Really appreciate it. And most probably will end up buying another 36mm for my wife. Thanks to all. I've been reading the threads for a long time and your comments drove me to the clasy 36mm version.
