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.
