Its a U.S. based company, so not sure how that would work for the UK customer...

Bummer! Sorry...it comes with a free black runner band ($200 USD value) as well.

Good deal if you are in the US, the rubber straps are fantastic (as long as you have the tool to swap them out). The only downside to the ones on the 39.5mm are they don’t have the quick adjust clasp (which is a great clasp). If I was in the US I’d be very tempted. I see they have the GMT and the two tone bronze on bracelet, both with free straps, on the same deal.

I’ve recently got the rubber strap for my aquis. It’s really good, very comfortable, fantastic clasp as mentioned and being real rubber still smells of vanilla :thumbup:

I can’t recommend it enough, although I’d have to think twice about buying only on rubber as the bracelet as an option is expensive. Having said that, I’ve tried on the GMT on the blue rubber and it’s fantastic. Maybe two aquis’s, two rubber straps and one bracelet could work?

I think one bracelet could definitely work, especially if you get the GMT with blue rubber, not black - gives great options. Same as you, I have both bracelet and rubber for mine and can’t speak highly enough of either. They are that nice to wear I too have thought about another Aquis so I can have always have both rubber and bracelet ready to wear :D

Impulse purchase, but just taken a punt on this from TK Maxx, who have it listed as a quartz...It's a flyback chrono if my 2 mins of research is accurate.

My first Eterna purchase and very possibly first time TK Maxxer! Whether it's a keeper we shall see.

Looks a great buy that, Chris. They also have it listed as 42mm? Aren't they 45mm?

Yes, whoever does the product info on TK Maxx hasn't got a scooby.

Rather like the blacked out look.

However as only one of each exist and I expect the final hammer price will be reassuringly expensive, a dream it must remain. :(
