  1. Not sure. Don’t think it says on Andrew’s site.
  2. Just landed from Trusty ... Glashutte Original Sixties ... very impressed with this. The dial is stunning and having looked at the original coming through Frankfurt I think it really captures the shade, and it's really pretty close (closer than pics suggest) on dial texture. I had been a little worried as close pics do show a difference with the rep's markings being a bit more regular in height and shape of the blobs. But really, you need to get very close up to get a handle on this and even then it's only apparent face-on, from any sort of angle it looks pretty much correct. Strap as ever was short on me as I have an 8in wrist but I had a 20 x 16mm Hirsch ostrich handy (lug width is actually 19 x 16mm but it squeezed on) which suited to a T. It's a 39mm watch but it's all dial and I don't feel it's small even on my large-ish wrist. It's lovely and thin and they did a nice job of the movement decoration too..
  3. Well impressed by the Tudor Heritage Ranger on bracelet that I got from Toro. The only giveaways (very slight at that) are the slight texturing of the dial on the original, and the better definition of the Tudor Rose signage on the crown. Anyone suggest (directly in the thread or by IM) any possible sources? Anyone done such a mod?
  4. I've had a close look and while the watch is an ok rep the bracelet is a mile out. Long, long way from super rep.

  6. No-one got the versions figured out? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Anyone seen these watches (MkXVIII rep)? They look pretty good but I haven't seen anyone do a direct comparison.
  8. I see Trusty is now selling a V2 V6F version of this, at a low price too. Anyone got any info?
  9. Looks like it to me http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zenith-Pilot-Extra-Special-Type-20-Uk-Post-Only-/222148198972?hash=item33b910823c:g:Qq4AAOSwbYZXWolR
  10. First impressions not good, dial too dark, bezel too light/red should be all over more bronze coloured. At least they got the changed case size right (who knows about the shape!).
  11. Is the second hand still an issue with these? I had one years ago even then it looked great, but it died after only a few months. Is the 'new, improved' movement really a fix? What's the best version these days? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I'm no expert on these watches but this looks off to me http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/IWC-Big-Pilot-Watch-/182156734040?hash=item2a69632e58:g:J1AAAOSwintXSDju
  13. I see Trusty are selling a v3 version of this. Strongly tempted. Any feedback on it? Obvious 'tells'?
