    Only got it this week. Makes the finishing on my Rolex look very 'industrial'

    It's a big watch (42mm) but not too big if that makes sense, however the BR 01 at 46mm is too big for me.

    Will try and remember to grab some when next on.

    I love the Blancpain FF. Everything about it is perfect IMO.

    M&S £25. Thousands of years ago my mother bought me an Omega for my 21st. Still got it but the time keeping is rubbish compared with my M&S chronometer.

    I'd be very surprised if it's a chronometer if it cost £25. The certification for that would mean such a price would make them lose money, I'd suggest.

    Hast the Omega had a service recently in its thousands of years of use? Lousy time keeping usually easily remedied.

    Picked up this UG the other month and it has just got back from being serviced.

    It is a Italian railway conductors watch, UG were commissioned to make them back in the late 60's. It's such a cool watch from an iconic brand for not too much money.

    The blue has been confirmed according to comments on the Kickstarter page :)
    I was looking at the same ones lol either white or blue.
    I'd like the ratcheting clasp and maybe the additional 12hr bezel as well.
    There's been some discussion of possibly slightly thinner cases for the sellitas and display backs too.
    I think if there's a chance to slim the case down, even by fractions of a mm, I may upgrade

    I think it's just a poll for the blue, along with a couple of other colours, could be wrong with that though :)

    I think the poll will be for additional colours.
    Nick posted saying blue was confirmed.

    [Edit] I've just upgraded to the sellita based on the most recent comment from Ross. He says he's definitely looking into a slightly slimmer csse.
