I bought one of these a month or so ago, great watch for the money and very handy grab and go watch...something like 180 day power reserve :thumbup:
Do you know what the lug to lug is I've found one review which says it's 50mm?

I tried to measure it just now, it may well be 50mm to the outer extremities of the lugs but from pin to pin it's probably more like 46-47mm. The case is stated as 42mm but it doesn't wear too big. My wrist is just over 6.5" and doesn't look massive on me. It's a great watch for the money, c £150. I'd definitely recommend.

That's a good deal at £120, I actually got mine for £125 but it looked like £150 was the best on the web at the moment. For £120 you cannot go wrong :thumbup:

I agree, that is quite nice, but that's big money for a Victorinox...
Edit: just noticed that the red 13-24 scale is printed under the crystal, a bit different.

We've been starved of dreamers so far this year and I feel I need to start with this:-

That looks good guy, I'm hoping they release a quartz model based on the Tyneham that would be good for me

Today I'm dreaming of this

43mm.... If it wears anything like the Canford, it will wear a bit smaller which is a real shame!

Would have been a over that otherwise.

Absolutely love it, but am just a bit concerned as it is a pre order. My order would be in already if I could be sure how it would be wear.

I wonder if Page and Cooper will have one to try.

You've got a point there Simon.

I could swear that I saw 43mm (too) when looking at the details mid-afternoon, but I'm blowed if I can find it now!
