    Smile Got one at last!

    Silver Jubilee no. 11/500 arrived today. I think it was the 7th attempt at ordering - a little late for Mrs Saggs's Christmas present but she loves it and it was a surprise gift.

    Any idea on the screwdriver size for the bracelet pins, I've broken my smallest [nasty and cheap] one tying to shape it to fit?

    regards

    Saggs

    Grats! I'm also planning to buy another for the missus as she thought the sparkly-glittery dial was more for women than men

    As to the screwdriver size, I used a 1mm head from one of those cheap watch repair kit Aliexpress specials. The screws were a breeze to remove and put back! It's so easy I was doing it while speaking in a virtual meeting

    Awesome Ö yours looks like there is even extra aventurine. Maybe itís just the light but looks like thereís more going on than on others Iíve seen.

    Thank you. I think itís the lighting. Definitely a big difference when moving into natural light.

    Still enjoying mine but wish I could track down a 20mm curved end strap with a butterfly clasp (picture unashamedly stolen from a post by Ralphy). Even fleabay and AliExpress have been unable to help me on this occasion. Hoping an additional post of this photo might get a result.

    Mine arrived today after I managed to get an order in a week ago. It's every bit as good as I'd hoped and makes a nice partner for the PRS-82 I've had since 2014.

    soo, I've been wearing mine for a straight week. so many good things to say about the watch but I do have one major complaint in terms of wearability..
    I have puny 17 cm wrists and I wish there were 1-2 more removable links on the 6 o'clock side of the bracelet because as it is, with 8 links at its shortest, the watch head naturally tends to sit on my left wrist farther away from me (in other words, leans to the left side) as the clasp mechanism is centered that way. I always have to wiggle my wrist so that the watch head goes back to the center...do note that the 12 o'clock side already has 12 links in it and it's still not enough for the clasp to be centered on my wrist.

    I've been wearing mine since Monday and have thought the same about the bracelet. My wrists are 16cm and I've taken out all the removable links on the 6 o'clock side, but would ideally want to remove one more. I'm not having problems with the position of the watch head on my wrist, but taking one more out would allow the clasp to sit more centrally on the bottom of my wrist.

    The jubilee bracelet is very comfortable though.

    That's weird. You have a bit smaller wrists and yours is centered? Well I think I do have odd-shaped wrists (thicker on the bone part -- left side). Anyway, what I did was to remove a link on the 12 o'clock side (11 links now) and extend 1 microadjust hole. It's kinda centered now although it's a little tight for my liking. Still better than letting the watch move away to the left most of the time.

    Maybe a bit of wrist exercise is in order?

    Looks like the site has updated the status of the Silver Jube to "Sold out & discontinued".

    I have owned lots of watches over the years. All different brands and never had a comment about any watch I have had on (unless I bump into Kippax). I have worn this for 3 full days and already lost count of the compliments about it. Hard to capture the dial but they are stunning.

    Silver Jubilee Everest

    I received mine today (number 012/500) and itís absolutely stunning. The jubilee bracelet is really unexpectedly comfortable as well.

    Itís such a difficult watch to photograph - it really needs to be seen to be appreciated with that dial.

    Love the Jubilee bracelet, but not the dial. Jubilee bracelet with this case gets the big thumbs-up from me.

    I handled one of these recently and was v. impressed by the bracelet but the dial doesnít do it for me. A conventional blue dial similar to the Rolex OP36 Explorer style would work nicely in my opinion.

    Got mine today in the final sale event. I compared it to my Hamilton Khaki Auto and Seiko Sarb033 and it's by far the winner. If you like the dial (and I surely do) it's an easy 10/10. I will absolutely be gunning for the gilt next opening. I was doing some regular maintenance on my other similar watches waiting for this to arrive and here's the pic I took when I unboxed it next to them. Protective plastic removed, bracelet sized, Smiths collection begins now!

    Its absolutely beautiful - the dial puts Rolex to shame, imagine if they had released a watch with this dial!

    Oh darn, was not active lately and did not know that the Silver Jubilee has sold out for real! Was planning to buy another for the wife but looks like the second hand market is the only way now...

    How about an aventurine Commander on a jubilee bracelet? It think it would look grand with steel hands.
