A former member on here got one a month or so ago and is very pleased with it. He ended up getting a custom version with extra text on the dial.

I also think there is another former regular, who still occasionally posts, who also has one. Unless he has already flipped it! :)

They look very nice, I too know someone who owns one.

The dial looks very unique with the enamel finish. But above all, it's Scottish :thumbup:

The aged white vitreous enamel dial reminds me of the urinals at the historic Federal building I used to work at so I’d be concerned what might happen after one too many single malts.😬

Yes I do have one and I haven't flipped it.

They are really nicely put together and in my opinion under priced. A great size making them very comfortable on the wrist. I had a hard time choosing between post office red and hebridian blue. The dials are much nicer in the flesh as you can't recreate the beauty in a photograph.

I can see this one being around for a very long time.

That is absolutely gorgeous, I love the hands, numbers as well as the dial.
I have to say I am not sure about the position of the logo though.

Thank you all. I am in hunt for an everyday dress watch. (Tried on Nomos Orion Neomatic Date Olive Green but felt too big and too light. A bit odd combination.)

This seems to fit the bill, right size and slightly harden case. Personally quite taken by the cream and blue.

Finally had a chance to visit them & quite impressed with what they have achieved with such a small team.

Black is totally different in the flesh. Has a hint of olive green under certain lights but most likely opt for other colours.

Still undecided between Crème or Hebridean Blue but hopefully place an order in the next couple of weeks.
