    Usually a picture per mm, ad nauseam. ;-)

    The crown of the original (I have one) doesn't need to be refined. Trust me.

    How can you tell how much stock is left? (Since I'm also looking to buy the Air Ministry although unsure of stock as well).

    I've been following these threads for some time and I'm really waiting on the new 36mm Everest with 20>16 bracelet and new handset although I know we're at least 3 months away from that.


    Bav.

    *EDIT - I see by changing the quantity in my cart. (20) 36mm Everests and (148) AM's left
    And I'm guessing the new 36mm Everests will only go into production once these last 20 are sold?
    Hopefully, Eddie can verify

    I've been working overseas for over a year now and finally flying home tomorrow. I ordered a 36mm Everest 7 weeks ago when I heard the stocks were running low as I didn't want to take the risk they'd all be sold out when I got back. I'm not sure if I'm more excited about getting back to the UK or opening the box from Eddie.

    I currently have 15 remaining. I'll be open on Sunday for ordering and then I'm off to hospital for surgery and don't expect to be open again for another month.

    Thanks Eddie,
    Wishing you all the best for surgery and speedy recovery.

    Will the production of the updated Everest 36 with the new bracelet go into production once the final 15 are sold?

    Anyone got any shots on a nato they can share? Especially Timefactors natos.

    Thanks

    Iíve had mine on Natos from day one (apart from a brief try on leather), the bracelet is in the case in itís stickers. Whilst Eddieís Natos are top notch and perfect for my Damaskos, I donít think the angular keepers match the watch and the buckle, along with the 20mm non taper, doesnít balance with the watch head. See below for (l-r) 18mm and 20mm old style, then Eddieís 20mm. Iím next buying some shoulderless bars and trying the watch with the 18mm. Shame about the buckle size as Eddieís coyote brown and grey look great on it. I donít think the watch suits black. The strap with orange is from Ukwatchstraps, good quality, nice small polished hardware, @ £6 posted.

    Not exactly a NATO but one of Eddies 2-piece nylon deployants. I think these and NATOís suit the watch better than steel.

    Thanks for posting. Seems like most pics are on leather or nylon. Of course it looks right at home on those. Not many on rubber. This one looks perfect.

    I don't know what it is about that strap, but seems to always fit my wrist perfectly - not too long or short - on just about any watch. First discovered this one on Marthon GSAR. Flipped the watch, but still have an unopened one handy, plus a BC on a Doxa 1200 for the summer.

    Has a vintage vibe, and does not scream "dive watch".

    Are the 3rd and 4th pics what I know as "RAF Nato"'s, or Zulu's? Very thin?

    They look great on this watch. Would also be outstanding matches for the PRS-29. I have several, from when I was interested in that style, but never wore them except to try out. All my watches are divers, so they seem too heavy for this style strap.

    Maybe I should get a 29 or Everest so I can use the straps?

    I like the Hirsch PURE (Caoutchouc) Natural Rubber. Here on the 39mm Smiths that I no longer have.

    The straps in the 3rd & 4th pictures are standard thickness Natos, ie 1.3mm, with the "extra bit" cut off, so yes they are now in the RAF style, or "single pass through" as Haveston call theirs. Zulus would overwhelm this watch, especially the oversized hardware they have fitted. Of course it's a shame to waste the bit you cut off, so . . .
