    This is one I would consider, if it wasn’t for the pesky subdial. 24 minutes kills the functionality for me, too short and a pain to read quickly (the Strela’s is 45: perfect imo)
    It's a 24 hour dial not minutes - a VK64 movement same as the EMG chornograph. So you can simply ignore it

    MWC PART 9 - Moderate Weatherproof Chronomètre

    Gah! You did explain this before!
    Sorry for being so dim
    Yes I could :-)
    Though a Seagull fired alternative sounds tempting
    It's the final countdown! PM me before they're all gone!

    Thanks Is!
    A shame
    Loved my Watchunique 1963, a great little runner.


    Though even my very flexible watch guy said he wouldn’t work on them (in answer to a query)
    They’re just different *enough* from the base Venus movement to make sourcing parts a nightmare, apparently

    yeah got a few touch wood they all work fine for me but seems theirs good batch's ok batch and terrible so depends what you get I guess mean my mwc chrono was fine so was smeagals but sharky had issues with his but in fairness that was more of an issue of the pusher bar breaking off so movement or case part not sure which .. but yes their is a very mixed feedback on that movement....

    so the 64 mecca quartz seems to be the choice of movements in this sort of thing which is a shame as killed my interest a good few times on seeing the 24hr sub dial
