    The black dial looks really good to me.

    Was wondering if the movement has the rattle that the 9015 has?

    If its a quiet rotor I think ill be in.

    Great overall detailing. It looks so much better to me in the video than the drawings.

    Another winner!

    I'll put it into production this year but there's enough going on at the moment. Currently in production is the Silver Jubilee Everest, more Everests (all versions), the Commando and I've just been informed that the monopusher is ready to ship. More military and air ministry plus the navigator are in production and waiting for movements to be delivered.

    That is a lot going on, sounds like the shipping rate might well fall a distance behind the stock level if all those land in the next few months.......

    I'm really hoping the blue one makes it into production...lovely case shape and dimensions, a really pleasing size for me.
    IF I'm lucky/ quick enough to get one, I'll be wearing it more in the tool/pool, everyday sense than just for dress duties, I've not much call for that specifically, but who cares... it'll look lovely in the sun, water, with those gold hands and accents.
    One question if I may and Eddie has the time to respond, wondering how much of the 12.5 mm height is the raised crystal. Thanks in advance.

    Another stunner.
    For my taste and wrist 36mm is the preferred size.
    Any Bruce Lee fans in the thread? I see mad potential for a gold PVD case.
    Cheers!

    Sadly I wouldn't have thought they'd sell very well.

    I took delivery of the 6 versions on Friday and I have to say, they do look good.

    And do I see an aventurine dial there? I do! I think that will sell particularly well, as will the dark blue I think.

    I don't know why Eddie bothers with all the other colours... a Transglobal in aventurine. That is all that is needed.
