Just got the email from them. That field watch is really nice/unusual. I like it a lot; they've eve done their take on a Tiffany blue dial. €850 a piece and this time with a manual wind Sellita movement. I love what they've done with the floating dial, too.

£800 is a tough ask. I like them, but something isn’t clicking for me. Not as characterful as the last generation. I don’t like the visible screws in the middle of the dial.

I’ve had an email from The Strap Tailor about this. Seems they’re doing the straps.

I've had this countdown on a browser tab since last week. I must have built this up as something special in my head becasue I'm pretty underwhelmed by it now. The screws in the dial aren't for me, and neither is the price.

I like the blue, but I'd rather have a Paulin Neo C for half the money. However, finding one of those is proving impossible.

I agree, I think this looks fantastic - it's got a classic field watch look (and size, and internals), combined with some lovely 'Studio Underd0g' style twists, like the floating dial and left field colourways. It's expensive, but I don't think £800 is unreasonable given the dial, movement and strap (from a UK company)

This is right up my street.

I like this so much more than I expected! I don’t engage with FOMO stuff so it’s easy for me to sit and wait on this.

I still need to check out a Longines Spirit in the flesh. I know these aren’t really competitors, but they would be competing for the same place in my collection.

I think they did great with the dial, it’s something different which is rare in this category. If they had a red, it would be much harder to hold off.

I think they're all quite cool. Definitely different, and the lume looks impressive, particularly on the "Pink Lemonade" one...

Do they match the £800 - not sure. If they were the £500 that the Watermelon etc were then I'd go for one. As it is, I might just wait a bit....

Im not so sure, £800 for a Swiss hand wind movement Farer are a little bit more for the same movement as are Paulin both I think are around £1000.

I really like what British brands are doing these days something a bit different from the usual "Dress watch, pilot watch, sports watch, chronograph" they are actually setting themselves apart from everyone else and I really think thats what British brands need to do to make a name.

I actually think they old chronographs were more overpriced for a ten a penny Seagull movement.

Seems they are doing a "Ming thing" (See what I did there) with the floating dial or printed on glass dial. Or is that a Mr Jones thing? They put the print on the dial to give that 3D image.

For all the naysayers regarding price, have a listen to Rich on the SW podcast today, might put your expert minds to rest....
When compared to the CW core collection actually comes out favourably.....

As I recall; The Strap Tailor did the straps on the last batch / release for The Studio Underd0g.

Personally, I feel that is overspecifying the package. There are plenty of other decent straps available that will suit the watch and they could offer the watched at £50, or even £75, less. Unless that is, The Strap Tailor are doing them as a loss leader. :-k :-k

Thanks for the link, Neil.

Immediate gut reaction? They're nice and well priced. I'm immediately thinking of the C65 Sandhurst Series 2 on a strap at £945 as a comparable piece.

I like the black or white dial versions; classic field watch for the WIS. The light blue and Pink Lemonade are a good bit of fun.

Two screws holding the dial in place? Why not? CW use 4 screws on their Sapphire dial models.

As I read it, whilst there is a limited time window on November 1st to get one's order in, they are not limited edition. Studio Underd0g will make as many as they have orders for. Good marketing. :wink: :wink:

Will I buy one? Probably not. They're a tad small for my preference, I've already got a couple of CW C65 Sandhurst versions and, besides, I'm trying to rein back at the moment. :oops: :oops:

^^^ Having experienced the quality of their (TST) straps, I’m far more likely to wear one than I would be to wear one of those watches! :escape:
