After some serious thought, I'd decided not to consolidate and to try and forget an SMPc.

I've tried and tried, but I just can get it out my head :lol:

3 watches.

1 is coming soon, excited.

Guess the one coming soon..... mmm wonder which one it is. 🤔

Tried one of these on yesterday. Very impressed. Titanium loveliness, slim 40mm case and an excellent bracelet.

I think that if I was in the market for another watch, this would be top of the list.

And you should Neil:

1) worn and wound have called it the new skx, until now the mini turtle has led a relative life of silence and is kind of overlooked due to its price i think

2) Hodinkee have jusy put that $*#*ing awful Hodinkee Tax on any second hand skx013 sale by writing an article on it.....which should have actually been about the mini turtle (imo)
I miss all the great things that may never be.

Sadly they sometimes do. They also sometimes do it with a day/date combo. Their cyclops lenses though are not very powerful (i.e. little actual magnification) so why screw up a perfectly good watch for little actual gain? Apologies to cyclops fans ;)

I've been looking at these too. Devicemonster have them at £196.99 but I'm no sure how reputable they are. Great looking watch though.

I found that one too. Their "administrative" address is in Hong Kong and their phone number "open" times state GMT+8hrs so, unless they hold stock in a UK warehouse, I'd guess that you should factor VAT/Duties into the price?

Unless anyone has used them and can advise differently?
