    Still, it's a nice touch. The inscribed strap, too.
    Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    The inevitable has been postponed long enough... The recent 'hiccup' with Timefactors payments & cancelled orders had me pondering the likelihood of being able to treat myself to an early Christmas present with the 'impending arrival' of the Smiths Navigator. I concluded (rightly or wrongly, remains to be seen) that the Navigator won't make an appearance this year; so decided to blow the remains of my watch budget on something I know I can get:

    Looks familiar...

    Nah, nothing like the other one - Completely different dial colour.

    That'll have to do for now. Will try and add some better pictures and thoughts tomorrow; but not making any promises - I have a 'full on' weekend of bathroom DIY while my wife & children are away.

    Thanks.
    I'll see what I can do about the photos, but won't be today and unlikely tomorrow, either - Had one of those 'one step forwards, two steps back' kinda days with the bathroom work; and have to pick up again tomorrow.

    I buy 2 of them, then a few weeks later they offer a discount.

    They're not exactly what you'd call 'bank breakers' anyway, so wouldn't have saved a huge amount; but in case anyone else is interested...



    EDIT: In case anyone's been clicking on the red text expecting the page to open... ... That's just a screen grab; try this one:
