I have no way to actually know what his watch will look like. All I did was grab a screenshot from his PDF of the gold plated Malvern Auto and copied over the white/silver dial. This is really poor quality because of this. I just wanted to get an idea of what the Malvern Auto would look like with the gold case....
Hi Joerattz, I did the same photoshop-trick to figure out how the gold-plated version would look. After that I have seen pictures of the prototype, and I must say that the prototype looks a lot better than our PS-efforts :D

Some information on the new models, I got this from a very reliable source! This is looking very promising I think...
"...Current thinking is

Peregrine @42 mm needs to do stuff for the boys...so current
prototypes ar looking at Ronda big date / dual time

or the newer ISA 8154 (Swiss option 220) with Alarm....looking
favourite....

Three colours on the blocks as we await second proto (2-3 weeks-new
hands in development)

Silver dial / Crimson Highlights / Tan Buffalo heavy stitched
leather with double prong buckle / Tachymeter

midnight Blue Dial / SS Bracelet

Black Dial (silver eyes) Crimson Highlights /Black Buffalo..maybe
crimson stitched TBC

whereas Aviator.....Malvern case....satin brushed Dull finish....
retro Dial Black/ Arabic numerals....new hands in development....
eta 2842...with nickle / rhodium finish... Buffalo black leather /
deployment and steel bracelet version..."
