    Just guessing, Eddie will let us know (usually only when he is certain about sth)

    I have not seen any claims that 2824 wil be an option...)

    This watch offers a lot of nicely differentiating features from the generic, redundant, ubiquitous, same old, redundant, dive watches, like,
    - an obscure movement with the AS 2063
    - the look of the acrylic crystal
    - "Great Britain" on the dial
    - no date

    Like buying a Vincent or Norton in a world of Harleys and Hondas. Great to have a little character in a watch. Not for everyone thank goodness.

    Good point and well said. It is a nice looking watch and there is something about a watch when it is not the same ole humm drum!

    I agree that the AS 2063 movement is great. But, there was a thread perhaps a week or two ago discussing the original PRS-50 LE versus non-LE (here). At least one poster purchased the LE version, then sold the watch since there was no external difference between the LE versus non-LE. I'm almost certainly going to purchase the new PRS-50b, but if I could save a few $$ with the ETA movement over the AS2063, I would most certainly do so.

    Wrist shots are now appearing on TZ-UK for those who are interested.

    If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family Anatidae on our hands.

    I am officially the proud owner of #34. UPS left me a little something for when I returned from work today. I may try to post a couple of shots but my skills as aphotgrapher are only slightly better than my watchmaking skills
