    No idea.

    Mk II are - usually - very nice and this one is no exception. The only downside is they ship from the US, meaning extra expense (shipping plus taxes ). Wait a minute: wasn't that the reason why you didn't get the previous Cruxible?

    Nothing wrong with the Cruxible-Hellion. It is to the A12 what the Hawkinge is to the Mk11.

    I was interested to compare the case sizes.

    Cruxible-Hellion
    • Case Width: 39.00 mm
    • Case Length: 48.50 mm
    • Case Thickness: 13.55 mm
    • Lug Width: 20.00 mm

    Hawkinge
    • Case Width: 37.80 mm
    • Case Length: 48.50 mm
    • Case Thickness: 12.75 mm
    • Lug Width: 18.00 mm

    The Hawkinge is a tall watch and the Hellion is taller, but wider too. The Hellion profile might be slightly more forgiving of height.

    Then I found the original spec for the A12.

    Some translation is required here. The width has a range of 26.99 mm to 33.39 mm. The height is a fixed 9.92 mm.

    Iíll let someone else work out the ratios.

    Good catch. I'm not really sure if it is a quick release or something else.

    Just found this article..... It seems it's been around since 2006.
    New one on me; but then again: My experience with 'PAMs' is limited to say the least.

    It seems like a good idea, but I don't really see the benefit: You have to hold in the button while you push the bar ...
    ... on a watch that has drilled lugs. Just use beefier spring bars.
