Yes, I've had one on recently, and they are a lot better in reality than in pictures. I'd need to shift something first though. :thumbsup:

I have to agree looks alot better on the wrist than the ***** marketing pics. It's starting to grow on me.

Congratulations on the watch!

Winner in my book. I can't help but think it would visually 'work' better on a bracelet though... do they offer one or is it all about staying true to the original?

Thanks Tudor don't offer the option of a braclet in order to remain as true as possible ( ugly ) to the prototype, some owners have put theirs on a metal braclet. I'm going to have a play around with some options.

If you have it in front of you, I would say it wouldn't work on a bracelet.

@Cyclops930 does the bezel lock, lock in any position or only at 12 ?

The salesman in the shop I went into was too much at the hard sell rather than tell me more about the watch, or let me handle it other than try it on, so I left him to. Plus he wanted 50% up front wouldn't sell me the shop one and told me longer waiting lists were imminent.

yes divided opinion when launched I think,  I don't do crowns at 4 on any watch really but that's me  , but I know the watch will be quality :thumbsup:

Its a piece that is causing some confusion amongst the people ..it is available at RRP some AD's will tell you its a wait list piece and some have it in their window..similar story to the BB58

And Well know Grey market Dealers are taking the proverbial trying to take advantage of said confusion at £1000 over RRP.in the UK

I have seen this piece  priced at over £5k....

I think its a great piece different from the norm and stays true to the Original which remains very much sought after

Apologies to all if I offended anyone with my :feck: salute ..but please do not confuse me with someone who cares what others think of watches that I like...:thumbsup:

As bit of advice don't put your new watch on top of your full cup of coffee to take a picture . I mean what sort of total muppet would do that.


The leather strap seems to have survived, good job it was brown to start off with.

At first glance I really liked it. I've been going off it ever since. Are the lugs as long as they appear to be? 

I really, really like the strap and buckle.

For me it's a bit of a curates egg, many things I like but many things I am just not sure of :sorry:

Here's the original prototype "Commando" from 1967

Thanks, I though so, but the pushy salesman told me it only locked a 12 leaving the lock open, which I was pretty sure wasn't correct.
