it's arrived !!! My Harold Pinchbeck is finally heres

Post by Goose383 » Fri Apr 19, 2013 11:21 am

Sorry just noticed I posted this earlier in the wrong part of the forum, could a mod please remove/move it from the 'off topic' section :?

It's finally here, My Harold Pinchbeck Edward has arrived.

I was planning on visiting the workshop to pick this up, but work is too busy at the moment and I'm in London at the weekend supporting a friend running the London Marathon, so I wouldn't have been able to pick it for at least two weeks - and I couldn't wait that long!! So whilst at work yesterday my wife signed for a rather large special delivery packet.....

Apologies for the phone pictures, but the camera battery was flat and I couldn't wait to open it!

Image

inside was a much smaller rather elegant box, additional ostrich strap and a hand written envelope.....

Image

All looking very good so far.. :thumbup:

Image

enough teasing, heres the first snap shot of the watch..... Note it's set to the right time and date out of the box, nice touch :thumbup:

Image

:D :D
Image

I've got to admit I love the simple elegant design of the watch, and the Tanner Bates leather strap matches the watch perfectly and looks amazing.

First impressions are excellent I am very very pleased with it, got it on today, will post a review and better pics in a couple of days.. quick wrist shot for you :D

I remember your original post about this watch a while ago. It looks really good, and I love the wooden box :thumbup: I always think the packaging is almost as important as the watch.

Am I right in thinking this is a quartz?

Yes it's got a Ronda quartz movement in it, would have preferred a mechanical one, but this was chosen based on the model being called 'Edward' the name of my little boy, so got instant approval from my wife!!

That looks good Goose :). Just the sort of box the C900's should have come in as well.

Looks very nice. From what I recall the case and dial are all made in England which is rather nice. The hands in red and blue give a nice English feel to it too

Congratulations. Very nice indeed, and I agree with ken have England on the face add a certain something. Looking forward to a few close up shots

Not sure which thread is best to post on, but...

Congratulations, Goose! :thumbup: :clap:

I've sort of had half an eye on the Pinchbeck site for a long time. Initially it was a toss-up between one of theirs and a CW, but I went with CW and that's the first Pinchbeck I've seen on a forum. Their cheapest mechanical, at £999, places them in a slightly different area and there is much less variation stylistically. So I guess you could say they are sticking more closely to a "tradition", though detractors might equally argue that they are a bit dyed-in-the-wool.

Personally I'd like to see them NOT going down the road of producing whole ranges of fliegers, divers, chronographs and what have you, but time will tell. I myself may have gone too far down the vintage road now to consider another new watch for some time to come, but I wish them every success.

I also hope you enjoy your very stylish new purchase...oh and that Tanner Bates strap looks sensational!
:D

Looks great, I think the cheapest watches they do at £299 seem to be quite good value. Even though they are quartz, they are all completely made in England - all the machining, construction, even the leather strap and the wooden box. So £300 doesn't seem too bad considering! I like the dark sapphire. Shame it has a mineral crystal though :(
