    Black aged dial with matching aged lume

    Cream dial with blued hands and matching blue dial text

    I could live with manual but I'd prefer an auto

    Manual will mean it's 0.9mm slimmer.

    I'd like that...but you opened this thread with "Having now secured the movements..." so perhaps there would be timing implications as well?

    The two watches I know with this movement... one is 15mm and the other 16mm thick. If it means fitting a press-fit back to reduce the thickness that might be a way to go.

    Alternatively, increasing the case to 42mm will also help to hide the thickness.
    I measured the case diameter and depth on the diagrams and I reckon this is in the 15 - 16mm range as well.

    I also have a feeling that it is 40mm at the bezel and 42mm at the end of the asymmetric case.

    How thick will the auto movment be?

    I've got a Sinn chrono at 15mm which I'm fine with.

    The auto movement itself is 7.9mm and the watch would be 14.3mm with auto, 13.4mm with hand-wind.

    Looks great but if you could get rid of the partial 2, 4, 8 & 10 it would be even better imo.

    Cheers,

    Hello, long time cowardly lurker here, I've got to say I would buy this watch in an instant. I was saving up to buy a Hanhart chrono, but forget that now, I want this.

    Oh yes, that looks good.
    Can I put in a bid for drilled lugs, so that shoulderless springbars can be used? Please?

    I don't think drilled lugs will look good on this model. The originals had solid bars that were filed down flush and presenting sweeping lugs.

    That cream dial render looks great and will be a stunner in the metal.

    14.3mm auto gets my vote.

    +1

    14.3mm is totally acceptable.

    Terrific looking watch by the way!!!

    Yes, I know. But solid bars are very unlikely indeed, as it completely limits the strap choice, and placing them is not a simple process. The next most secure option is shoulderless bars, which need drilled lugs, or fat bars, which are also unlikely. I agree clean lugs can look nicer, but most people never complained about lugholes on a 5513, they can look great.

    I'd make the same request. White dials are hard to get 'right' or at least satisfy all personal tastes. I like an off white dial whereas Eddie has indicated he doesn't like White dials at all. If it has to be cream, on the 'dairy scale' I'd favour a single pouring cream rather than the clotted cream/condensed milk of the Expedition

    The hand-winding monopusher has a power reserve of 58 hours.

    Love the version C as well out of the 3 although they all look nice.

    Would prefer automatic winding but wouldn't mind the manual wind either. When this comes out I'll have to consider flipping my PRS-5 for an upgrade to the Smiths.

    Very much hoping this latest version c rendering makes it to production, particularly like the blue on cream detailing and syringe hands with lum.

    58 hrs is a very respectable reserve.
    This may be a little naive, but if it is a hand-winding version of an auto, will the crown wind for ever, or will it reach an end-stop?
    I have had one hand winders based on the otherwise auto 7765 (I think, it was a Tutima) and it had an end-stop. But I guess that is an additional modification rather than just removing the rotor.

    Better yet - Bad Panda, please. Increases the distance from what Newmark offers (beyond the better movement and overall quality increase, obvs).

    The syringe hands are an absolute winner on this, too.

    Version C is simply stunning. I fear 2021 may be an expensive year and thatís just considering what Eddie has potentially lined up for release. I think I need to lock myself away for a few months to save some money. Oh.....

    Lume is a must have for me and I really like the look of Version C, especially if we could have the original HS9 white dial colour. And I agree with Sweets about wanting drilled lugs for shoulderless bars.

  37. #87
    Manual wind please. The world is awash in auto chronos but reasonably priced, manual chronos with Swiss movements are still very rare even though Sellita is doing a manual version of its chrono mov't (Farer does one, the re-launched Nivada Grenchen is planning some).

    Only one movement, 2 case backs with each watch, like the PRS-42. We haven't discussed straps yet.

    So, the "one movement" proposed will be the manual...

    It has an end-stop. It's hard to tell from the renderings, but IMO the crown could be more exposed in Eddie's case design to allow for more room to grab it for winding. Not sure how much it sticks through the little notch on the outer side.

    I'm with you on preferring the manual version.

    Either white or brushed, but agreed on no polish.

    Yep, white hands on the black dial, cream with blue looks great.

    Manual wind would be the preference.
