    Default The big P51 reveal...

    ...still hasn't happened.

    Giles just won't share the dial with us... guess we'll have to wait for the launch party! :D

    Perhaps it's a new trend? Wearing his watch the "Henley way"...? :D

    man, that case back looks awesome though! I love the pop that the blue makes. Should we expect some pretty drastic changes from the prototype design, do you think?

    The caseback did look really good, I know 'Steve' was itching to see the front as well! :lol:

    ...I think it's a little more polished than normal, echoing the polished, almost chromed look of FBA. I'll let you know next weekend, when I finally get to meet FBA at Duxford! :D

    One point about the roto-click bezel crown, it's slightly slacker than the MB2 version (in a good way) which means it should be easier to use in that postion.

    Yep the case back is polished to match the cowling and polished aluminium finish of the P-51s....new 'perfect dial' did not arrive in time.. Boo! Next week..... I had a pal shoot a film of the Skylon event including an interview with Giles about the watch and I will be uploading at the end of next week... thanks to all those who came.... and to those that missed it... well it was a good night...
