    No, this was in the Westfield - White City Boutique.

    No real indication of availability given but it sounded like it could be a few months yet.

    I am attracted to these and the 1926 models.

    Hafiz has done a great video review of this here. Love the macro shots, but dodgy bracelet clasp.

    Mmm, that comment on the clasp could put me off unfortunately.

    The 41mm day date review also appears to be up now: https://youtu.be/w5i4xVvwE7Q

    It is a huge let down on an otherwise excellent watch and with an integrated bracelet you have no choice but to live with it.

    Yep looks like the same issue on the 41mm. Quite a shame as I like this watch alot.

    An Omega Constellation disguised as a Tudor...

    The bezel and roman numerals kill it for me. Seriously, I would NEVER buy any watch with that hideous bezel! File this one under "Cheesy Mis-Mosh."

    You think there'll be a list? I don't.
    Blue dial 41 mm out of stock everywhere you look. Best is an AD who has it as a pre-order for delivery towards the end of the month, for the black dial.

    Watchfinder have one for sale above RRP.

    Pre-order delivery times getting longer, especially for the blue dial variant.

    So after my preorder was pushed back almost a year, I searched online and found an AD in Northern Ireland showing one in stock.

    Made contact to confirm and told I will get shipping details tomorrow.

    Very nice, I also managed to find that at Lunnís, but the wife declined it for her 40th. Looks lovely.

    Found Lunns online and got in touch. They were great to deal with and resized it spot on before shipping.

    Very nice but the big question is how is the clasp? Is it as fragile as the review suggests or was it all a bit of an exaggeration?

    I have no concerns about the clasp, which feels secure. Iíve been unable to accidentally dislodge it.
