Yeh Bob is awesome, he can talk all day about his three favourite subjects, Watches, Football and Golf!

Can't wait for the refit either, we've had one stage completed and just the main part of the shop left and the offices! We will definitely invite you to the launch events.

I tried this watch on a few months back and was really pleasantly surprised how it wore on the wrist. Because of it's diameter i expected it to be huge but it wears really well.

Yes surprisingly it doesnt wear lika a 46mm at all, especially on this Navitimer bracelet it just seems to wear like a 43mm.

The new Chronoliner is a real eye-catcher. My only reservation is about the ceramic bezel: aren't the small edges around in danger from breaking? Ceramic is very tough against cratches but not against breaking. It would be more secure to have the ceramic only as an inlay into a steel bezel. Otherwise a 40-41 mm version would also be fine, all-black dial, 60 minutes bezel and day-date version of the 7750, like on the Steelfish Chrono. Would love such a watch.
