Anyone currently has this model yet?

Recommended Posts

A friend was on the waiting list for this one. I know it's pretty new. Anyone stocking it yet? I may send the image over to a few TDs as they're always very helpful in fairness.

 

Thanks in advance guys. 47723b2552d0afb47ac50bc14512e799.jpg

Ah found some guys. It's not a great rep I've found so far. Will keep looking. Just fancied a new brown strap watch to go with my black strap sub.

Does this have the typical speedy flaws?

Sadly yes. Look at the sub dial spacing compared to the gen above

Corr that’s a huge difference in those sub dials

With it being a (reverse) panda dial, the sub dial spacing immediately smacks you right in the eye. An all black Speedy looks much more realistic.

Availability of a suitable movement. If the sub dials aren’t in the right place on the available movements, then they won’t be on the right place on a rep using those movements. I doubt Speedy reps sales warrant a clone movement, so thinks probably won’t get better anytime soon.

Why is it so hard for factories to get the Speedy right!?

They cant make the subdials bigger pecause the 6 hr one will "bite" the 6 hr mark at the bottom (this is known as bleed) so the only solution its to print all subdials as big as posible.

 

one thing we all should suggest to the fqactories via TDs is to make a speedy with gen specs but not functional complication (chronograph) just like that gen spect 23j daytona with no fuctional but correct case dimension

if noob can make a good dial and a good case that would make a super rep and it deserves to exist imo.
