    Super cool eighties dress watch Miles.

    I agree about the day date, especially with the long day. There just doesn't seem to be enough room.

    The Great is one of my favourite pieces. It is so thoroughly thought out. Congratulations!

    I think they actually started life as correct hands for a Mk II. They vaguely resemble the ones on mine. Over polishing has turned them into something else though.

    Oh, dear....

    It's not even a Mk I. It is the infinitely inferior ETA powered Mk II.

    Thanks guys! Miles-yes, 35-37. For a while I only wore a few pieces that size. I found ones with small dials like the Alpines to be small, but I've changed my mind about them.
