    Well I got one. Can't wait.

    The leather strap I want it on (WatchGecko Otley in brown with white stitching) is out of stock in 20mm at the moment but a couple of NATOs are waiting. Quite looking forward to wearing it on the bracelet, though, precisely because so few of my watches have them.

    Thanks for doing this 36mm version, Eddie. Not been this excited about a watch in a long time, if ever.

    Just got to work 7am EST and was way too late. Maybe next month.
    By then though the Speedbird will be on my mind too.

    Yup got to work 7:30am eastern US time and too late. Oh well. Its a Jan xmas present for me then.

    Seems like the first batch of 50 were sold out in less than 30 min....Well i had no chance then being on East Coast US. I would have had to stay up at 2:30am my time to get one (on a work night). ha

    Also in canada with an alarm set for 2:20am. And I guess it was worth it as the shop closed after 30 minutes or so from what I can tell...

    So excited! I've been following the old discussion thread and finally got into my first time factors watch with the 36mm.

    Can't wait for it to arrive.

    PRS-25 Everest 36mm update

    Cleaned, treated with RM Williams leather conditioner, ready to go on, until I decide whether to keep it or my original . . .

    I might be being a bit dim here , but what does a PRS-45 look like , I'm starting to get a
    bad feeling in my bank account having got the 40mm Everest and wanting the white
    face 36mm Everest , when released, having managed not to succumb to the black 36mm!
    Congratulations to Eddie on recent releases , they just seem to be coming thick and fast
    and are stunning to boot!
    cheers

    My advice is to buy them all. You'll only be sorry when they're sold out and discontinued. You can thank me later.

    Beautiful piece. Any more closeups? It looks from your pics like the minute hand is actually shorter than it appeared in Eddie's pics on the website.

    Is the seconds hand lume pip also looking higher than expected? I thought it was just going to touch the markers. (Or does the triangle stick down more than the other markers?)

    Blimey. The first one to land is next day in the NL! Doesn't say great things about Royal Mail :)

    Congrats. A lot of envious people looking out for the overloaded Posties.

    Just got my dispatch notice, so Eddie must have cleared the international orders and started on the UK ones. He must be working so hard. He should really get some elves in to help at times like this. Can't be easy being a one man band.

    All the international ones have now been shipped and 15 for delivery in the UK tomorrow. Funny old split: 22 international, 44 UK.

    No, Eddie's pics are accurate. I'm just a crappy photographer with a crappy iphone.

    I'm really enjoying the watch. Incredible quality for the money. I've got some leather straps coming from Italy, should get them tomorrow hopefully. Once I have them I'll post some pics of the watch on leather.

    In the meantime:

    Hard work Eddie, but at least you are not suffering from Brexit related stuff, yet ;)

    Good to see people still have an eye for a quality watch for a decent price.

    Lovely little thing that 36mm version....
    Got a new watch, divers watch it is, had to drown the bastard to get it!

    My only reservation is the size of the new clasp relative to the watch head. But tbh I have already ordered fresh boots for this bad boy, as I'm not really a bracelet kind of a guy.

    I had really hoped that the prs45 would be released in time for Christmas, but fate declared that this was not to be. I had one of the previous Everest and really like the simplicity of the watch - it was just too big however for my liking. I'm pretty excited about this one tbh, and that's coming from someone with a somewhat jaded horological palate.

    Thanks Eddie and good luck with all the processing.

    Have a nice Christmas everyone.
    You managed to fit a lot of WUSisms in there

    PRS-40C? This is the one that's getting me excited. Still would like an original version again though.

    Yeah I should also have a package in Canada tomorrow (the 20th...) and it’s impressive how fast they shift it. But for (iirc) £35 shipping, they better!

    Now to see what kind of duty & taxes we get hammered with. At least some Erika’s straps arrived today under the radar.

    Just got the mail from Eddie to say mine has been dispatched, can't wait! Levels of excitement for this watch are skyrocketing!

    The wrist shots above look great, any chance of some with the clasp? Hopefully I'll have mine in time to post on the Friday thread tomorrow. Thanks again to Eddie for fantastic speed of service, my first purchase with you but won't be the last!

    Yey it arrived and it is goood! Very happy with it and very quick delivery. Only thing that I don’t like is the clasp, really hope that the vintage style bracelet will be available as a standalone purchase... to a reasonable price... with simple slim stamped clasp... with more tapering... ;)

    Some more photos.

    For reference, my wrist is about 7" in circumference. I took out 3 links and the extendable clasp is unextended.

    As I expected (as I have a Citizen 'Excalibur' dive watch with a similar fitting) the clasp is thicker than you want really, especially on a smaller watch like this, and I think a lot of people would probably have preferred a standard clasp with a taper to 16 mm on the bracelet. Then again these extendable clasps are a real boon on hot days. A lot of people will prefer to wear it on a leather strap anyway.

    Thanks for the pics and compliment, it is a beautiful watch !

    I believe I'll jump on it on early 2019 (when new funds will be available ...) and I fully agree with you, this 36mm Everest deserves a bracelet tapering from 20 to 16mm with simple "old style" clasp, like the one on the Baltic watch here below just as an example.

    Mine just arrived. First impression: the Smiths 36mm Everest utterly destroys any reason one could advance for spending £2k on a Black Bay 36.

    Incredibly pretty, beautifully made, lovely weight to it. It’s astonishing what Eddie has achieved for the price.

    Not massively keen on the clasp, but I didn’t expect to be. It’s too bulky for a 36mm watch, I feel. I’ll be picking up one of the later rivet bracelets for it if they become available separately. For now I’ve got it on an Erika’s MN strap, and I’ll be enjoying trying it on different strap options over Christmas and new year.

    Congrats Eddie, it’s a real winner.
