    Well, looks like I missed the boat on the 39mm.

    Nothing against my friends in HK and watches from that side of the world, but Roland Kemmner manufacturing is worth the price. As in German build is preferred. Just my two cents.

    2 Timefactors watches i had from Roland Kemmner production both had to be returned. One DOA, another later (in warranty)
    The 2 i've had since, all good.

    As the new manufacturer is doing heat blued hands, i can't help but feel the PRS36 i have would be much better from the new manufacturer. And if it returns with them, i might have to think about flipping the old and buying the new. The hands on the PRS29 AM are amazing.

    I'm not going to suggest my own experience is indicitive of the bigger picture. But, certainly the new manufacturer gets my vote.

    Timefactors . . .

    Nice watches. Good value. But unless you happen to be awake at 2:00 am on Monday morning and manage to sneak in an order during the half hour Eddie happens to be accepting orders, it's impossible to buy the damn things.

    Ridiculous.

    36mm is where it’s at.

    Looks great!

    My only wish is that both this and the new white Everest would be offered in 40mm as well. 36mm is simply too small for me.

    The last time he opened the store it was at 15:00 BST on a sunday which would be 8am for you (early but not ridiculous).

    Normally, the stores open Tuesday morning, all the way through till Thursday 17:00 PM (uk time)
    But, when new watches are released (like now with the expedition and white dial everest) he gets a flood of orders and can close within an hour of opening to make sure the orderes he does get can be processed.
    Can make it a real pain to try and get one though.
    Might be time for him to employ someone.......

    You may be right but sadly 36mm is too small for my wrists.

    No, I hear you guys... just digging the trend toward smaller cases with my 6” wrist. 36-38mm is my sweet spot and I’m looking at this, plus the Everest, when Eddie reopens.
