    Nope, that would be the farce we're currently embroiled in

    Grappling with whether I'll try to snag one of these. I don't think I've ever owned a 36 mm watch, does anyone have experience of doing so with something similar to my 7.2 inches (18.5 cm) wrist?

    Can't even get to the card stage. Get the error message after trying to confirm shipping address.

    Eddie - can you help?

    Finally went through on the second attempt! :)

    Snagged one too! Currently sat by a pool in Florence, had to give the mrs a ďIíve just got to pop back to the room for something!Ē 😬

    Done, but no thanks to sagepay. Wouldn't accept my work address, but on a trial run it did accept it to the Wizard of Oz, The White Palace, London W1 8QT, so clearly there's no logic to it at all!

    Brains are funny! Been following the Expedition with great interest since itís inception but suddenly started hankering for a dive watch last night. Orders a PRS-82 instead! Will get an Expedition in the future...

    Yes! It really is...

    Very excited! Eddie opened the site this afternoon and I have just ordered two Timefactor's watches: the Smiths PRS-25W Everest 'Expedition' and the Smiths PRS-29A are winging their way to me. I can hardly wait to wear them...

    Cannot justify another watch for myself. But I have ordered an Expedition for each of my sons, perhaps one of them will let me try one from time to time!

    It's going to take me 3 weeks to ship all the orders so please be patient. Orders shipped in the order they were received.

    Take your time, Eddie, your health is more important than anything else.

    Got my order in for a white-dialled Everest, so I'm happy.

    Do both the Everest and the Everest Expedition have the same colored dial--they both say white but the expedition appears to be cream colored?

    Expedition dial is described as pale cream in the detail

    Ha - I ordered the white Everest while sat on a restaurant terrace in Pienza !

    Wife right next to me and didn't even notice me doing it.

    Expecting the watch to be much better than the service I had today :-)

    The Everest is also described as pale cream on the website. Whether or not they are the same pale cream, I guess only Eddie can answer that one at the moment.

    Iíve been desperate to get my hands on an Expedition but have been at a family do all afternoon and by the time I could escape the table, the shop was shut

    Never mind, Iíve waited this long, a few more weeks wonít kill me and Iím delighted for Eddie to have such a keen clientele.
