    The Endurance... pre-order

    Well, there you have it. Thatís me making ridiculous Bremont purchases again!!! Iíve just placed an order for the new shiny Endurance from Rob at Toppers! 🧐

    What a great timepiece! ❤️ Iím much less enthralled by the exhibition case back (pure gimmick ó my watch is on my wrist and on top of a nato, I donít need to see a spinning rotor!). However, I am really rather impressed with the orange touches against the titanium (which, together with purple, is probably my favourite colour).

    I adore the snow, and I love that A Blog To Watch has photos of it in the snow showing the slight yellow tones of the titanium and the bright orange NATO!

    On critiquing the watch, I think Iíd probably have liked the 24 hour hand to stretch to the chapter ring, but itís good enough. I love the ceramic bezel and the orange cardinals together with the white indices and the orange tip to the second hand (which Iíve missed from my ALT1-ZT/BK). The ĎNí cardinal on the 24 hour hand is also a very nice touch. I may miss the chrono function from my ALT1 a bit, but, to be honest, I think Iíve used it 4 or 5 times since I had my watch, and then afterwards couldnít remember what I had used it to time!

    In short, for me this is will be a fantastic watch. Of course, I ordered the watch to come with the titanium bracelet (which, unlike the steel, matches the case perfectly). I also asked Rob to ensure that it comes with the mightly gaudy-but-delightful orange NATO.

    In short, I canít wait! Can May get her any more quickly!?!?!

    Photos from A Blog to Watch (https://www.ablogtowatch.com/bremont...edition-watch/) ... because those guys really know how to photograph a watch!

    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. :smokin::twit::smokin:

    Looks great. Reminds me of my Milgauss with the flashes of bright colour. Hope you enjoy your purchase when it arrives.

    Who currently makes the NATO strap. As that looks interesting and would suit one of my watches.

    Thanks for info, I hadn't realised Carl had gone back to making them.
