    Another TZ account breach? [Although I'd have thought they'd advertise an expensive watch on SC, assuming they can match Andy's photography skills, rather than push some random watch brand ... ]

    That’s a fair point it is pretty out of character…

    They look a bit like Skagen meets Christopher Ward to me...

    This would seem out of Andy's usual MO, a one sentence - one link post.
    He'd usually wait until one has at least arrived and been assessed and photographed

    Got to admit, this totally left me scratching my head when I saw it earlier. If it is a hack, thankfully they are only shilling a product and not scamming properly.

    Genuine post. I really like the designs and from the website images they look nice quality. Will report back when received.

    Seen them advertising on FB
    Quite like the look
    Hope you enjoy it

    Well my package arrived this morning & I've taken a few quick photo's



    I love the way the Pioneer dial pics up the light.





    The Philosopher came with a pretty nice mesh bracelet, but I'll wear it on the leather strap.



    The bracelets & the straps all come with easy release springbars

    Very impressed.

    They look good, Andy. What's the build quality like?

    Pretty good.

    The Pioneer has a bit more weight to it, so subjectively just feels more substantial.

    Love the modern-minimalist aesthetic, especially as applied to the chrono

    That Chrono is very nice, well done :)

    Perhaps I’m missing something - they look like something you’d buy in Marks & Spencer for £29.99?!?

    I'll be honest, I can't see what differentiates these from any other generic budget quartz from M&S, Next etc. which is why a few including me immediately thought it was an account hack!

    Dials are too big for the movement, judging by the date windows.

    My wife bought a cheap watch from somewhere like Next or M&S a few years ago - the type that looks like a chronograph complete with fake buttons until you realise the dials show the date and the day of the week, with no chrono function. I’d swear it had the exact same ‘punched from a flat piece of metal’ hands as on the chrono in this thread. (Apologies to the OP genuinely, I’m just amazed you’ve posted about such generic ‘meh’ that’s been on the market with a similar look for a decade or more - mostly available from supermarkets)

    Each to their own.

    I’m happy with my purchases.
