    You are for sure. I ordered a few days later and Synchron advised the delivery date is outlined on the invoice. Checked mine and it says April, so you are all good 👍

    Superb.

    What wrist size are you Pepere?

    Out of interest, did you specifically request the Isofrane strap over the tropic.

    17cm

    Yep, I asked for the Isofrane instead of the tropic as it is an option for free ;)

    The Isofrane is super comfy. I’ve planned to switch it for an MN strap, but no more

    Pinched from WUS, looks like the Doxa Army one may have been on a curved-end tropic



    I've ordered the black case version with Isofrane, but will probably stick it on a tropic. Also been eyeing up a black mesh, but worried it might affect the coating around the inside lugs

    Be great if Synchron cancelled ďDeanĒs order and passed the opportunity on to a genuine buyer.

    Surprised the pvd hasnít sold out as yet.

    Looks great on the Isofrane. Think thatís my personal favourite combination.

    Appears ďDeanĒ has removed the screenshot of his order details from Synchron from his eBay listing.

    100%. Quite bizarre, in something designed to be read, that someone could produce something so utterly illegible.... it's the horological equivalent of dazzle camouflage! ��

    It is indeed. What a nice watch.

    I have a growing need for flashy colors myself, so I ordered an orange tropic for my steel version; groovy pics to come :)

    Itís even better in the metal
    Itís unusual for a watch to stay on my wrist for more than 24 hrs but itís been almost a week now.
