    The jubilee bracelet looks great but with a small clasp it would be even better :)

    Iv'e been on the forum since 1940 or maybe a quarter to eight. Does that count too?

    When do you think these will hit the shelves?

    It will be interesting to see the price.

    I had just downloaded the previous vid to do as Ralphy suggested, watch the dial in slow-mo. The new soundtrack is a definite improvement. The watch looks just as good as it did before ;)

    That soundtrack sounds a bit Inspector Morse theme tune...

    RIP Barrington Pheloung.

    What is it they call it these days? Colourways?!

    This is the Colourways of Colourways. This watch is going to make history.

    I think it needs this...the printed numerals with the aventurine is a job half done.

    Yet another winner, 36 mm is great for this watch.

    Is everything set in stone already? I think a tapered bracelet and smaller "bridge" on the same would look better and wear more comfortably for the people like me with skinny wrists.

    I don't agree about applied indices. The base is the 1016 and not the 14270. I prefer it as it is.

    Completely irrelevant to me, but an interesting point, nevertheless.

    The proposed jubilee design is pretty far from the 1016 already.

    I believe Eddie already said something about this being a special edition and not part of the Everest range. I just thought it could look better with applied indices, maybe more coherent/consistent with the fancy pants aventurine dial, other microbrands are doing applied. HE, will decide,

    Iím a big fan of this - I modded my own prs25 to a hybrid jubilee bracelet with the Smithís clasp.

    I was wondering if you had considered a semi-invisible clasp for the jubilee (similar to a day date)?

    What distinguishes "Cult" members from the rest of the population here, like us "aprentices", as I love this upskale Jubilee magic as well?

    That was an in joke following one of my watches appearing on eBay and the seller said he wouldn't sell to any of the TZ-UK cult.

    Very interesting, thanks for the explanation, Eddie, my comment was half a joke as I didn't know where "Cult" status is coming from. So, that seller is really being disturbed by all this interaction instead of taking part in enjoyment and creative endeavour and communication with fellow watch enthusiast. I have to say that I relatively recently discovered this realm of beautiful interaction where creative ideas could really come to fruition in your projects with everyone's participation. Quite remarkable!

    It has been happening for more than twenty years. The mainstream is still trying to figure out how to incorporate client participation.

    Am liking that a lot. But I've already bought a PRS-55, a Sinn EZM3 and a Unimatic this year so I hope these don't go on sale until next year otherwise Mrs Sish will be serving me papers!

    Oh wow. I am embarrassed to say that I did not realise until now that this was to have an aventurine dial.

    Oh yes. And on a jubilee bracelet too!

    It looks lovely.

    I'm surprised no-one has done a mock up with a fluted bezel LOL. With such a blingtastic watch, you may as well go all in !

    That dial is captivating. A very special watch, worthy celebration of Eddie's milestone. Doubt I'll be lucky enough to scoop one when the time comes and will be green with envy of those that does.

    Sorry if it's already been asked.
