    Just in, Everest 36mm

    New to me (original purchase in April of this year) and also my first watch in this size. So far I’m loving it ; very comfortable and classic styling!

    The bracelet looks different to the photos on the website? The Oyster links seem to be the other way around?

    I put on a cheap more “jangly” bracelet with a regular safety clasp when I got it. I was able to use the solid end links that came with it though. Like many others I wasn’t a fan of the big extension clasp.

    I expect the 36mm Everest to sell out within 2 weeks, possibly even this week.

    That’s great news! Cheers on your success especially with the Everest and new Vanguard! I was able to get this from a gent here in the states who purchased it new in April.

    As mentioned in the Rolex 1016 thread that first picture is excellent!

    I have mine on a generic oyster most of the time and it feels just right with the taper and slimmer clasp. The drilled lugs make strap changes easy and so I sometimes wear it on a Nato, leather strap or better still Perlon - however it always ends up back on the bracelet.

    Thank you! Yeah I agree the bracelet feels great, like it’s barely there. I will definitely be using straps as well, I love drilled lugs both aesthetically and functionally.

    Does anyone remember the discussion as I can't find it among the threads.

    'Ive read or heard rumours the new 36mm black will have some changes to the handset length or dial.

    Is this referring to the second hand changing to a counterweight style 1016 lollipop from the current ?

    It refers to a longer hour hand and to a shorter minute hand.

    Some discussion also on the lollipo position, but I d o not remeber which was the final choice.

    If only you had been on hand and flying in close formation to get a better shot of this. We are at about 1000ft having descended from 3000. If you look closely you will see mine on its grey Perlon.

    That shot looks great!!! All the shots I posted with exception of post 10 and 22 were taken with iPhone 6+ the other two were with a Nikon D3400 with a 35mm f1.8 Lens. All editing was done with free, but awesome, snapseed and Lightroom apps on the phone. It helps a lot that the watch is easy to make look good!

    I really do like the 1016 look of the Everest especially the 36mm version and have been contemplating purchasing one for a while now however, there are a few niggles that are putting me off from pulling the trigger on one.

    1) Miyota 9015 movement, although reliable (I have experienced this in other watches) the noisy rotor (same with the 8215) really gets to me a lot.
    2) The size of the factory clasp, it look way oversized and modern for the vintage look & feel of the Everest.
    3) The lack of taper on the factory bracelet from 20mm down to 18mm from what I have read, which doesn't really suit the aesthetic of the watch's 36mm case size.


    Do we know if any of these issues are going to be addresses by Timefactors for future build releases of this model and if so, is there any timeframe ?


    Don't get me wrong, I really like this watch very much and may still purchase one at some point in the near future.

    To reply quickly, the new batch will have:

    1) Miyota 9039 movement (no ghost date)
    2) simple "old style clasp!
    3) oyster bracelet with rivet, tapering 20 -> 16

    and adjusted hands.

    See here below a pic of the new bracelet - clasp (although the end link will be male and not female).

    I had lost track of what was expected down the line... but reading this I'll be in for a 36mm v2.

    Personally I would love it more if the boobies logo was added and a more refined crown - if that makes sense - shaped more like a classic 1016 crown. I know that then treads closer to copy than homage so I'll probably be in the minority.

    And it's not that there is anything wrong, per se, with the current crown. I am simply nitt picking

    The Everest seems to be the Kate Moss of the Timefactors stable, lots of moody pics being taken of it.
