    Yes fair point ... so I guess the ideal for me would be the original Everest 36mm bracelet metallurgy (oyster style, no rivets), but tapering to 16mm, and with a normal clasp :-)

    The rivets look massive. Based on the second photo it doesn't seem like it's anything to do with reflections.

    Why? The other photos clearly show the extent of the rivets without reflections distorting things.

    Eddie said that in the first page and is the photo that actually shoes no reflection

    Eddie,
    Is the tan strap the same as available for the PRS 45?

    Having looked at the rivets I now “get” it. They appear tall as the reflection of the rivet head is positioned directly underneath it, making it appear to be double the height it actually is. I am much relieved!

    Yes, it is what Eddie wrote

    So to be clear, the rivets don't protrude at all?

    And I'm simply saying that I think that the rivets are rather large, and reflection has nothing to do with it.

    This turned out amazing, have you ever thought about putting the tits logo on the crown Eddie?

    An engraved crown on the crown.

    The second image down in post number 1 shows how high the rivets are very clearly.

    He wrote "you're seeing the reflection of them in the polished sides of the bracelet the reflection"; I think my description makes things a bit clearer.

    This is the way I see it... the red bits protrude from the case. Then you can see the 'extra length' is the reflection from the protruding rivets in the polished side.

    Thanks, leather for me, I'm not a protruded type

    As they aren't actually rivets but are CNCd then a little work with a jeweller's file will reduce them to a suitable height if need be.

    It says "expedition pattern". If it took part in any actual expedition you would be told.

    I am the protruded kind. At 36mm I want as many protrusions as poss in order to get max wrist presence.

    I will let you know when I get it. White dials tend to wear larger than black dials. I am currently wearing 45mm.

    This looks great

    Eddie, I don’t think you should rush your post-operative recovery ... because it’ll be expensive for all of us when Timefactors is open for orders again

    I’m surprised there is an anti magnetic cover. Pretty cool. Though I wonder why that wouldn’t increase the a/m rating as most modern autos are inherently a/m to 4800.
