    I think they both are, it's just easier to see the contrast on the cream versus the black. Eddie can confirm! They both look very nice.

    Looks amazing.

    Iíll be away on the weekend so good luck everyone. Just comparing the case size and shape to the Navigator which I measure at 11.2mm in thickness.

    But if you live outside of the UK then 20% VAT would be deducted from your order.

    Vaer doesn't have an antimagnetic core. I don't like any of these military field watches that don't have antimagnetic cores. 1. it's not that difficult to do 2. Field watches are fairly simple watches already, and they don't have the features of the typical sports watch, so I think to set them apart they should ALL have antimagnetic cores. It makes sense to have that feature: a simple 3 hand watch that can't be stopped by shock, water or magnets.

    that's not how it works. You always pay the UK price + local taxes. The reason for this was explained here a while ago, but I could never really understand it.

    Yea, I'm in the US and I just pay the UK price and shipping. Usually ends up tax free since it's under the customs limit of $800.

    Thanks! I went for cream, as I have a black-dial Everest Honeycomb and wanted something with blued hands.

    Congrats everyone who got one. I didn't try this time as I'm still on the fence. I have so many Smiths watches already and this would compete too much with the PRS-29.

    Yes me too, photos please guys!
    I didn't try to join in the melee as I feel it may be too close to my navigator, but real life photos may well sway me to try for one.

    Here we go managed to link to Imgur instead:

    I've included shots next to the Navigator and 29A, there's actually quite a lot of differences.

    The crown is nice and big, the dome sapphire sits somewhere between the Navigator and 29A.

    Crazy lume levels with numerals lit up!
