Going to have a look at one of these beasties.

My only concern is that at 44mm it should be spot on for me, but speedies apparently wear smaller, so we shall see.

.. . . and being predominantly black/grey will likely make it wear smaller still. :problem:

Ah! Bugger. Looks like Sunday will be a wasted journey then!

They do have one of these as well so all might not be lost.....

Ah! Big Pilot; much better idea. :wink: :thumbup:

Not sure whether I prefer this or the Titanium version you posted a couple of weeks ago.

Maybe you'll get the chance to compare them.

It will be interesting to compare the two. The trouble is, I do feel that I need a Speedie in my life!

One thing, looking at the photo on PC screen, as opposed to phone, I can see a screw for the lugs close up to the case.

Are the lugs still fixed or articulated, similar to some Hanhart models?

The lugs are fixed , but screwed onto the case. Rather a strange arrangement!!

Pretty much. Panerai have a bar that is a released by a pusher under the lugs, but the lugs remain attached and the bar slides out.

Zenith, the lug is unscrewed.

Compared to the VC easyfit, it is a rather agricultural arrangement, and a solution to a problem that doesn't really exist!
