  1. Oh....forgot to mention, the black dialed version is more true in regards to a homage of the IWC, but I liked better the cream dial, and purchased because I loved the looks and specs, not because it's a homage.
  2. The watch is a homage to the IWC MK 11, which had a similar hour hand. So obviously not a modern idea. To be honest, I initially didn't like the hour hand either but it has grown on me. The strap is temporary, I have a Nato 6B/2617 strap incoming, as well as a brown leather bund strap.
  3. I finally got my Navigator today, a month and day since I was lucky enough to order one on Feb 7.I absolutely love this watch, and I am normally wearing 42 to 44 mm watches on my 7" wrist.Not a fan of straps with deployment clasp though, so swapped it out for an RSM Herringbone Twill field gray strap.And recently ordered a leather bund strap to try with the watch.And this is the first watch I have owned with a hand wound movement since I was a teenager nearly 40yrs back.
  4. I like them all, but the Stowa in particular with that red seconds hand.
  5. Timefactor's Smiths Navigator PRS-48 I got lucky and managed to order this 36mm watch on the weekend just past. Hopefully it's 'my best small white dial under 1k" watch. Hand wound too, which to me is all the better.
  6. A bit about me. I live down under, have been a member of another watch forum for about 12 years, and finally got around to posting my first post here a little while ago My taste in watches is fairly simple: I love clean dials, don't and won't ever own a chronograph (way too busy for me), and my current "bent" is for Pilot and Field watches. I have never really got into dress watches as I rarely dress up, so tool watches are for me. Of the 8 watches I own my current favourite is a 44mm Steinhart Nav B UHR (with A dial). No print on dial, no date complication, lovely blued hands. And reliable. But... I purchased a new Hanhart - Pioneer One (grey dial) a couple of weeks ago and it arrives in 2 days. I can't recall ever being so excited about getting a new watch, and it's the most funds I have ever spent on a watch too. And just tonight I ordered a Timefactors Smiths PRS-48 watch, so look forward to it too. Anyway, I hope to contribute here and enjoy the site. Chris
  7. I managed to buy the cream dial version a couple of hours ago on the timefactors site. I look forward to getting it. My only concern is the size, as I normaly wear 40-42 mm watches on my 7" wrist.
