    I hope everyone got what they were after!

    Will do .. Iím not too sure on the delivery timescale but will wait patiently...
    Iíve seen a few videos on them which made me want one apart from the style which just jumped out at me ..
    one comment they mentioned which was a slight negative was the watch could slip though the lugs as they are fixed lugs .. when you pick it up for example..but as Iíve seen in other videos you simple use a NATO or Zulu strap that has a second piece of strap which holds the watch in place and safely (which was my thoughts)
    Anyroad Iím extremely excited :)

    I am also waiting for the chrono. In the meantime last week I bought a S/H quartz to check out the original design. It is very thin and wears like a "stripped down to the bone" Royal Oak. Another quirk is that in use it looks like a two-hander. The blacked out seconds disappear and the lumed tip only gets seen when you look for it. It is easier to see it at night than in the day. The autos must feel different with the white secs.

    Yes the white seconds is a nice touch .. (might have gone for orange maybe !) but I like the white ,, and its lumed which is a bonus ... IMHO

    If a chronograph with the controls at 12 is a Bullhead... What is a three-hander with a solo crown at 12? A rhinoceros? A unicorn?

    Has to be a unicorn.

    I had an auto and really liked it, it was just that bit too long for my wrist lug-to-lug.

    Looking good! I really like the combination with the orange strap but this watch looks good with almost any strap.

    An excellent video review of the PRS-40 Auto. If he spelled it right he might get more views.

    I just wanted to know what it would look like. Now that I have seen it, I'd say that it loses more than it gains.

    Managed to get one ordered today myself.

    Time of order was 14:01, by that time the Gilt Edged Everest had sold out.

    I noticed shop was closed at 14:04. 😱

    Prs-40 ordered

    Well started wearing this today, which Iííííll do for the next 2-weeks.

    Must say really love it so far - itís one of those things where the whole far exceeds the sum of its parts.

    At £235 itís an absolute steal and I would thoroughly recommend anyone getting one.

    Still available in the shop?

    Or anyone is having a change of taste and wants to offload?
