    Version C, please. Would buy an A too if the EVEREST was printed in a dial-shaded font!

    Ohhh, pretty. I already have version A, think I’d have to add a C as well.

    It’s something that occurred to me the other day when I was looking at mine - the 36mm PRS-25 case is a great base for all sorts of possible designs, not just 1016 homages.

    I'd definitely buy B, probably buy A and flip my "first generation" black version ... the hour/second hands on A are a definite improvement on that.

    C is nice enough, but I'd need to see the final product before making a purchase decision ... it certainly doesn't grab me like B does ... B I'd order up front just based on that drawing ...

  5. #205
    I really like B.

    A is also good, probably a minor improvement over the current 36mm, but nothing that would worry me. If someone wants one of the 36mm, I'd just buy the one just released.

    Oh for C - guess would like to see a real proto to make a decision. Not too sure at the moment, could be a winner, or maybe a total dogs dinner!

    Would the C version be same lume as the others or the vintage tone in the picture?

    I dont mind the vintage look lume as long as it glows. Which it mostly doesnt, on most of the vintage look lumed watches i have. But imuch prefer version C over any of the others. The a404 dial is a stroke of genius, i think that like with the 29am it looks like a smiths that could have been, rather than a 1016 homage. Id like to see more original smiths influence and design dna in all the smiths branded watches, rather than being c/overt homages to any other brand but maybe thats just me... ;c)

    But yeah. Shut up and take my money on version C. Looks brilliant.

    Cheers!

    How I would hate Eddie’s job right now... the amount of work to put together -repeatedly- projects like that, and then people picking and choosing combinations that are not offered...


    It will be a C dial with B hands for me.
    Well, everybody in Casablanca has problems. Yours may work out.

    It won't have vintage lume, it will have X1-C3.

    Nice, vintage lume is a bit....meh.

    I do like the thought of a red second hand.

    Eddie - does that mean the colour of the lume will be similar to what you have on the B variant?

    Eddie version C is absolutely perfect, exactly like an original Everest. There is money in the bank for this one

    Eddie, do you have a guess when these beauties will be available? Have you thought about offering a special collectors bundle for those freaks who want to have all three?

    B please.

    Or, make both, like the PRS-29? Seems there's enthusiasm for "C," as well. Should draw in the Smiths enthusiasts and those who will balk at an Explorer "homage."

    Either way, best of luck with the new release, and Happy New Year.

    The C looks to have great promise, particularly at 36mm. It picks up the feel of the original A454 quite nicely.

    Version A for me

    Definitely in for a C

    I’ll be watching these with interest... especially given the date-less movement and ‘X grade’ lume.

    The centre part of the dial is sunken.

    This is fabulous. A real stunner. I really hope that this makes it into a production run.

    I intend to buy Version C as well. Any rough timelines so I get my savings in shape?

    Version C would certainly test my resolve not to buy any watches this year to breaking point.

    I know what you mean, my resolve held and I managed to not buy the 36mm Everest before Christmas, but this may make me crack. Participating in this thread hasn't helped either.....

    Version C for me. Maybe with a red seconds hand iso a blue one, just like the original 454 Smiths?
    And maybe the hour numbers could/should be slightly bigger.

    Good call about the numbers being ever so slightly bigger. I also think the red second hand would be worth looking at, maybe without the lollipop.

    Hmmm. Starting to like that Version C.
    It's good to have choices.

    Glad to see the 16mm taper is confirmed :)

    Version C now looks very appealing, especially with the much improved second hand.

    Should Version C perhaps come on a leather strap, and not an oyster bracelet?

    You could always just fit any strap you like :) tbh I wouldn't bother buying if it didn't come on a bracelet, might as well just wear the prs29.

    I like the fact it comes with a bracelet. To get a bracelet after the event is always a pain.
