    Whole chunks of my life come under the heading "it seemed like a good idea at the time".

    Very nice. Trying to spot the differences from my automatic version:

    • 24-hour hand is larger
    • Black date wheel
    • Date window is closer to edge of case
    • Wider minutes hand (???)
    • Quartz movement (obviously!)


    Anything else?

    I do rather like the look of this, having owned the original PRS-22 GMT but later sold it....could this be my 1st quartz watch purchase for over 30 years?

    Typo?

    I see this is up on the Timefactors website at a fantastic price. But also with a typo: lug width is listed as 20mm. Certainly it's 18mm?

    I'd have thought a typo to be unlikely. Yet it is shown as 18mm here #12 ?


    Edit. You can rest easy now. It's back to 18mm.

    I would assume it shares the same case as the baby Speedbird, so must be 18mm.

    That does look lovely. I've been humming and hawing over the Speedbird for a few years. This might be the perfect version to function as a holiday and travel watch.

    Wow, for someone with more than a few watches I lost track of time however vainly went to the site at 14:16 and managed to order the Quartz GMT. Thanks Eddie, Cheers, John B4

    And here it is, the Speedbird PRS-22GMTQ, although I do wonder why it wasn't called the PRS-51GMTQ

    Bracelet adjustment was a doddle (need a very small flat headed screwdriver), it feels really good on the bracelet, time to look for a suitable 18mm strap to see how that feels. Lovely watch as always Eddie!

    Looks great! Can someone please make a short video/wristroll or more photos on different straps? Really interested in this one but I doubt there will be any Youtube reviews out there.

    Hi,

    Hope there's not too much anticipation - I'm not good with photos!

    Many thanks, Adam! I have the same Cordura strap from WatchGecko and it works great on the Navigator as well.
