    UPS Tracking number provided for my Navigator so I'd best be coming up with those excuses to the missus particularly as a Grand Seiko is also due in tomorrow.....

    Personally, I think both of these alternatives would be way more inconvenient and frustrating for customers.

    Beautiful pair indeed!

    I managed to get the Navigator and Everest as well.

    About Navigator: as somebody mentioned, there is an intermittent beeping sound if watch is resting on a wooden surface. Initially I thought it has something to do with my speaker and the antimagnetic cover (not really an expert here... don't judge), but then it beeps even without anything around it. While writing this post I noticed that the Everest does it too. Curious.

    And a question about Everest: when unscrewing the crown to the position A (as described in the included pamphlet) and while winding it, the feeling is almost "squeaky", like there is almost no lubrication in the threads and mechanism. Or maybe it is just my sensation, but the Navigator does not feel the same, I feel the mechanism turning while winding the Navigator. Could somebody describe how it is supposed to "feel"?

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    Winding the Everest surely isnīt as smooth as winding the Navigator. Haven't thought about it until you mentioned it. Maybe a difference between automatic and hand winding movements in general? Not an expert either though...

    Surely not the fact that you didn't get a watch you thought you were and an email to tell you, leaving you not out of pocket?

    If so, probably time to take a look at your priorities... If ever there was a 1st world problem, that's it!

    If something more serious, then fair enough.

    I love the picture..I have a Navigator and want the explorer too. The explorer looks smaller than the Navigator dial wise. Is that just an illusion based on the picture angle? I'd love to see more side by pics if you have some time.

    I don't have any more pictures. As much as I wanted to like the Everest it just didn't do it for me. Had it for a couple of weeks, but it left me cold and I ended up selling. The Navigator on the other hand is an exceptional watch IMO. Size, legibility, accuracy, how it wears - it's close to perfect.

    Visually, as I remember the Navigator did seem a tad larger than the Everest, though in the photo I think it's more due to the angle of the shot.

    Thanks for the feedback on the explorer. I think its one of the best 1016 homages but i haven't got hold of one yet. I also like the super rare incipio 1016 homage which a domed crystal and eta movement. The Navigator feels to me too like a step up in build and design proportion from the other time factors watches I've tried.
