    Congrats on another winner Eddie! I think the Everest will be my second TF watch. For international orders, do you only ship via courier, or can you ship via post? Asking because the brokerage fees in Canada for couriers amount to highway robbery.

    As for the 'too short' hour hand on the Speedbird, it's perfect, and it defines the watch. Don't ever change it!

    First post ... joined up on the forum after seeing a pic of the 40mmm on facebook ...

    These new versions of the PRS-25 look fabulous.

    With a 6.5" wrist, the 36mm looks like it will be perfect for me, and I hope to be one of the people online early enough to get an order placed on Tuesday !


    Thanks to all those who have contributed to the two threads about these new models. It's been very interesting to read through, and see the evolution of the design, and I love the fact that the company owner is sharing so many details and consulting in advance with his potential purchasers.

    Welcome to the forum (good choice btw) and I know that Eddie is hard at it preparing the pictures for the TF shop, patience will be rewarded for those that are chomping at the bit, perhaps we might see something later today... and in other news... I cannot wait for the Smiths 'Daytona' .............now that is going to be a corker lol....

    I'd be interested to see how this looks on the wrist, very impressive I bet as the proportions appear spot on (to me).

    I reckon with those nicely shaped lugs it'd look rather good on a strap too.

    I am excited about the 36mm versions about to be released, but unable to decide between black and white dial versions. Such a beautiful watch. Wonder though if the 36 might look a little small on my 7.25Ē wrist. Look forward to seeing eventual wrist shots.

    Everybody should wait for the white dial.

    Good lord, I was already sold on this, but that lume shot... Wow.

    I'll be at the airport for a flight to London on Tuesday morning, flight is scheduled for 7.40am so hopefully have time to get an order in beforehand!

    Eddie congrats, to me this is absolutely perfect and I am now desperate to get my hands on my first TF!

    I see the price is up on the website.
    £320 seems great value to me.

    Because of the crappy exchange rate, the cost savings on the smaller crystal were wiped out and it ended up costing very slightly more than the 40mm version but because everybody will expect to pay less for the smaller version, I made it a tenner cheaper.

    A decent gesture, but many manufacturers have the same retail price across different sizes. I think you should just sell it for the same as the 40mm. It is every bit as desirable.

    Wonder how many are sitting in front of their computers with their significant others thinking - oh bless, up early doing more Christmas shopping for the family.
