    Hey Nick, welcome, and congratulations for choosing to look at a Bremont!!

    As others have said you can't really go wrong with either of the models you are considering. I will throw another 1 into the ring though. I see in a comment above you say you have a 9 inch wrist. With that in mind maybe look at the S2000, slightly wider case again than the the S500 @ 45mm but the same thickness and I will say when I tried one on I found that the extra case width really helped to balance the height/chunkiness of the case and with your wrist size you would have absolutely no issue wearing that one!
    Just a thought....!

    By the looks of it they are both solid watches, I think I'm drawn to the MBiii for the story behind it. I will do when I finally make the choose!

    Thanks,

    I have the ALT1-C Anthracite and the MB III (absolutely love both) , if you have a 9 inch wrist I consider that a plus point as you can carry off a larger watch.

    Hey,

    Thanks very much for the pics they both look very nice!! I don't suppose you have an image of the MBiii while its dark showing the illumination? After seeing the MBiii in the shop to day I think Im 90% sold on it!!

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Hey,

    ah another great looking watch!! After seeing them all today I think Im more sold on the MBiii - only just tho!! The S500 was mega, the hight on it might be the deciding factor.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    I must say the MB III is a watch that has also caught my eye lately, I am sure you will love whatever model you chose.
    Here is my S500.

    Hey!

    Thanks for the photo, a fantastic looking watch!! Saw both of them today and wow they are so nice!! I think the MBiii might have edged slightly in the lead, only slightly, might have to consider the S500 as a future purchase!! Do you have a shot of it while its dark showing the illumination?

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Lovely looking watches! I think I'm set on the MBiii now, after seeing them at the weekend! Do you have a shot of it in the dark while its illuminated?

    Thanks

    Hey, Some great looking watches!! I think I'm sold on the MBiii after seeing it the other day. I don't suppose you have a shot of the MBiii in the dark while it is illuminated? have you ever taken it swimming?

    Many thanks,

    Nick
