    Re: F74 Production Update Thread

    Got mine and the dial is really well executed. Quick remarks:
    Did I say I love the dial!!? wow. Right color and effect, markers are right size and shape, just enough red... Love it. Crown is a little small IMhO most obvious When screwed in close to the case. I had that concern when I had seen the initial profile drawing. But very workable and not a show stopper by any means.
    The watch had come off its pillow and moved around all over the place too. Only one side of the bracelet was protected as mentioned By another member the other day, so I have light rub marks on a few spots as well. Nothing major at all. I too didn't get my extra strap I had ordered but I can wait. Not a biggy tho.
    Watch looks stunning. It will definitely be a strap watch though. It looks too long and is a tad bulky for me on bracelet especially w/o taper. Had a couple of issues sizing it with two defective screw bars.
    But overall I love the watch and it looks just right. Aesthetically a perfect design for me and can't wait to play barbie later

    I didn't have time to try different straps but quickly put the Hexa F74 on a Drunkartstrap canvas and I love it. The watch shines on strap. It feels so comfortable and balanced and lighter. It's sits just right, flat and in the middle of the wrist, no wobble. It also looks better IMhO and the dial stands out more. Here are a few quick pics I posted on Instagram.

    Nice pics Brice. Lookin forward to seein it on some plush leather.

    I have been swapping between Heuerville umber brown and milk choc leather. Looks super.

    Very well done piece and it's very cool to know the fellow forum members on here all contributed to it. Makes it even more worthwhile to me.

    Definitely looks good on green Iso and green canvas........would like to see a Gunny on it too.

    I have to agree, the bracelet, while comfortable, takes away from the watch. I really like the mesh on it as well, as it shows the case off. As Brice said, stays perfectly in place on the wrist without any wobble.

    Watch is a keeper here too, even without the caseback, due to all the contributions on this forum to this watch.

    F74 Production Update Thread

    Mine arrived at my shipping address on Saturday but I didn't get a chance to pick it up until this morning. It's absolutely awesome. I wonder why I have more expensive watches now...

    The only watch I have owned that had a ratcheting clasp was a Gen II Reef Ranger. Non-tapered 22mm as well, and to be honest I didn't much like it. Not my idea of comfortable, even if it did enable more easy adjustment on the fly. I may switch mine out to a strap as well (and I am much more into bracelets).

    Picked up mine at the Post Office and believe this watch will be in my collection for a very long time. I will wear it tomorrow and see how my students like it.

    No Pb Vic. I found an older strap I had that BJStrap had made for the first Hexa and a Hexa buckle I am gonna try on. Should rock.

    Btw do you know when you'll ship the rubber straps?
