    And for the reissue of the black dial updated Everest can we assume always mid-late October ?

    You can't assume anything.

    36mm speedbird is a dream come true.
    Pure class.

    With tons of lume on all indices please.
    Maybe 10mm thick and with 20mm lug width?

    And a tapering bracelet?

    Anyhow, great stuff! I love smaller watches, welcome back Eddie!

    I love the idea of a 36mm Speedbird. As a request, could you please not use the ratcheting clasps that were used on the 36mm Everest and the current 39mm Speedbird? They're just too bulky and the corners are too sharp and refined. They're pretty horrible in my opinion.

    Eddie,

    How about a new version of the PRS-17, ie the PRS-17B or preferably the PRS-88Q with the 1988 dial that was overlooked previously in favour of the 1989 dial?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Basically the same as the current model but in 36mm and fitted with the Miyota 9015. 36mm watches have proved very popular recently and I think it's a good size for a unisex model.
    Wonderful! I would buy one :-))

    A PRS88Q is a good suggestion, if suggestions are desired.....Been a few originals for sale recently which was nice to see.

    I'd certainly be interested in a new 17C if it was as competitively priced as before.

    I suspect the others are talking about the diver, though....

    Since we are at the wish list stage I'd be interested in a "Commando" version of the Everest. :)

    I don't think the normal version is wearing pants.

    The Y fronts look a bit like a Mercedes symbol. :)

    Is the PRS40 quartz chrono still in the plans?

    I'm probably the only one who would love a quartz 36mm Everest in both black and white dial options

    Future plans

    ďBurn the witch!Ē

    Actually a quartz Everest could be cool, using a really good movement like the prs-18 COSC. But not high on my wish list. Could be a great Christmas gift for the grab & go family member however...

    36mm Speedbird would be fab especially if was sterile. Iíve had my eye on a MKII Hawkinge but a 36mm Speedbird would trump that. Not even fussed about a date window.

    Are you thinking of a similar time frame for the updated black dial version?

    How about reissuing this little 1960s beauty? ;c)

    Just seen this thread.

    36mm Speedbird sounds fantastic. :)

    Very nice design.I am surely not the only one to see this as a 1940s Breitling Premier style. A reissue of this would sell well i think.

    Itís a precista branded Gallet Multichron 45. Early Valjoux 7730 and a 36mm stainless screwback case. Itís always been a bit of a personal fave.

    Quickly checked out the going rate for them. Unfortunately beyond my budget, lovely as they are.

    Eddie to the rescue?

    I'd love to but which movement? I won't use Chinese and it shouldn't be quartz.

    Some might not be too bothered if you used a Quartz movement (like Ewan's), even less so if you also offered an auto or manual.

    If Chinese isn't an option - the ST19 would be the obvious choice - then it's not easy if ETA supplies aren't readily available (or cost effective)
