^^^^ I have tried on the white dial, blue barrel MB2 a couple of times and still think if I ever bought a Bremont that would be the one.

I tried it on the other day at Mayfair and the airco. The Airco mach 1 is just so legible but the mach 2 is very much not in some lights. I like the MBII as well. Those two and my alt1-z would make a great trio. Interestingly precision time has the MBII at 15% off.

Looks good Richard had to look twice to see what was different, how often do you wear it?
About once every 5 years or so... :)

Sounds like you've caught the bremont bug, good looking watches :thumbup: personally I prefer the look of the Mach 2 to the Mach 1

I'm planning on 3 best watches and 3 average. Started with the Club Dunkel and slowly planning the next step like the look of the solo 37 but might have to try a Mach 2

Keep looking at the samurai too especially in black but I wouldbe keep it. I don't seem to hang on to Seiko divers. They aren't for me, most have super long lugs.

I agree Guy, this really is a nice looking watch. I can't seem to find more about it though, do you know of a reference number please? (also flattered that you used the pic of my AT, my pics are rarely good enough)

DM had a bit more of a look and think the samurai would be a little large for my current tastes and I've still got my SKX013. I think one diver is enough for me at the moment

Thats the problem with Seiko divers. They are just too big but the real issue that makes them not be keepers fro the most part is the extremely long lug to lug for me.

Hope it stands up better than my Expedition.
I Think Timex messed up with the name, it definitely doesn't live up to it.
The indiglo light is amazing tho.

Was contemplating these two at Page & Cooper last night. Just about got my head around the prices when bingo! They went up by 10% overnight! :thumbdown:
