    Yes it is. Number 49 received in good condition. Thank you very much, Mr. Platts.

    It's here. A pretty shiny thing. There's some heft to it too. More later. Thank you Mr Platts.

    Will get wristtime at least for the next four weeks.

    I have the same dilemma

    That was my exact order so let me know what you decide as I will have the same lovely dilemma soon enough. Initially, I was thinking the solution lies in the observation that I am fortunate enough to have two wrists.

    Recieved my Expedition today as well as a PRS10.

    Still yet to even open the package as it's been a hectic day.

    But would like to thank you Eddie for getting all these orders out so quickly considering your recent health issues.

    Are you talking about the Expedition or the Everest, as I'm itching for my Expedition

    Fingers crossed!

    I've been lurking for a while and have been tempted by the 40mm prs25. Then I heard about and waited for the 36mm prs25, then I heard about a new bracelet with rivets and waited longer for the 36mm prs25. Finally the new bracelet comes out and it's on this new everest dial. It looks stunning, glad I was patient but now I have to wait again for sales to open up! I think the everest will be my next watch, after that the black dial prs25 and possibly the white dial at a later date XD. May have to sell some seikos to afford all of this

    I very much like the way the bracelet tapers in little steps just like the old expanding ones did.

    A little dark driving to work this morning, so a rubbish picture, but this is what I wore today...

    [IMG] upload[/IMG]

    I love the Expedition, it is such a classy watch (and I am partial to a bracelet), but the PRS29a is what got my Smiths taste buds going in the first place and I have been dying to wear it. It made me smile all day long, I even wore my bifocals so I could see it properly whenever I looked at my wrist without having to reach for my reading glasses. Smitten.

    I'm back home now and getting to know the Expedition a bit better.
