I fully approve and back you up on this. Image Image

I would have likely bought one of the Canford or Bloxworth at half price (never seen them this well priced before) except that;-

1. I'm selling at the moment, not buying, to restock the watch fund

2. I've sold two Canfords in recent weeks, and

3. I bought a Broadstone on eBay a couple of days ago that arrived today.

I couldn't resist a half price Bloxworth. Reverse Panda with Tungsten PVD case. :D :D

Nice purchase Guy, just ordered a specially commissioned Holton Royal Marines ( for serving and ex bootnecks) from Elliot Brown with a few nice Corps touches on it. £631 on the bracelet with an additional strap and the requisite engraving of service number etc. Looking forward to its arrival.

Top notch, Gary.

I saw details of the RM Holton a few days ago, in a topic What is this movement like? that you've perhaps missed.

A seriously good watch. :clap: :clap:

What colour dial did you go for?
I bought the Newmark 52 gilt one from StrappedUp here on the forum - it arrived today.
I changed the NATO to a vintage brown destressed leather strap.

As a result, I then ordered a Newmark NP which should turn up tomorrow :D
That’s a lovely watch. Congrats!

Happy that I bought the NP Chronograph too and arrived within 24 hours of ordering.

I am not a fan of mesh bracelets especially when they finish straight across the lugs so I have left that in the box. I tried the included leather strap too but without quick release spring bars it was really difficult to remove so with a lack of patience I just chopped it off with a knife and binned it, ha!

Used a marine nationale parachute type strap and I think it works well.

With the following caveats :

It's Chisolm Hunter and it's ex-display stock there are quite a few Bremonts at 40% off.
