I like it in orange too but it's in danger of looking like a very expensive Swatch :lol:

Interestingly, they do it in lime green and yellow as well as orange.

Don't think so, if he did I'd go for that instead of the ms edition. Do like the blue but not sure on the yellow hands though

I'd go airco co Mach 1

Wouldn't mind a black bay 36 in the future

That black version is pucker. Yellow hands.....flip material. Love the airco. Want both. The Author has so much character. Better in the flesh.

Did briefly think of getting a blue and trying to change the hands but that's beyond my current capabilities. Happy with the black ms if I get one

Are they a similar price?

The black will look smart. All occasions. Cwc RN material.

No the Author is £500 and the Airco is an equally ridiculous.£2800. Il look back on these moments in life on my death bed and realise the waste.

Had confirmation I've got one on the way. Yeah really like the CWC but the price doesn't work with current budgets

For some reason I thought the airco was about £2200. Lovely looking watch would it be the one?

I am dreaming about this one today, mainly as I just bought it for £50! Reduced from £170.
44mm chocolate brown strap chrono with blue face, nice colour combination from Simon Carter and a bracelet too.

Have owned his watches before as M&S used to sell them, nice for the money.

Just found out about the Farer Aqua Compressors this morning, and the Leven immediately jumped out at me.

I love a red white and blue watch, and this one seems to get just about everything right. And no date, even better. The size pains me, but at least in this case I have a chance to try it on at the Wind Up NYC event this month (where I'll also try on the Seaforth). Reviews are saying it's comfortable for its size, in part due to short lugs, so I'm hopeful. Not that I can afford one right now, but possibly next year.

Unusual, but likeable, colour combinations.

Seems like a reasonable buy at £170 but a steal @ £50.

Thanks Guy, I had my eye on this a while ago and was surprised they had stock left.
Probably not the right thread for it but like you say a very good price.

I can confirm they are supremely comfortable and I prefer sub 40mm watches. The 45mm lug to lug does it indees make it fit well, I have sub 7" wrists

I went for the slightly more conservative Endeavour
