My mate got his one this morning, and is delighted with it too. The second hand is bang on the markers, even the Cyclops doesn't look too bad. 

Had mine for about a year now, it still gets regularly worn in rotation. There's only one thing that irks me is the polished centre links in the bracelet.

Think I'll be getting the  scotchbrite wheel on the bench grinder when I feel brave enough.

Good choice A2orry. :thumbsup:

Hmm, black does look good, did it come on a bracelet ?

Yes it came with a bracelet but as Bob said above, the centre links are polished and it looks bloody awful imo. It's a shame that Strapcode don't do a Super Oyster with curved end links for it but as I quite like NATO'S, it's not a problem.

Vapour blasting might be the answer, I used to get mine done buckshee, but the guy left. This Pic shows a vapour blasted watch, not a great one I'm afraid (picture). I've found another guy with the gear so I'll give him a try and see what the prices and quality are like. The good thing about vapour blasting it is very sympathetic to the product. More to follow.

I finally got around to scotchbriting mine in the garage, results are pleasing to me anyway.

Sorry, shoddy phone pics in a windowless dim garage.

Thinking about it right now .what's most appealing to me is bracelet looks more like 22mm than 20.I think the polished links make it look narrow. My only negative comment about the watch is the 20mm bracelet. If it  had 22mm bracelet it would be perfect in my eyes.
