    Hey Paul, very nice. Is the lume paint on Aurora hands white or greenish white? They look lighter than the hour markers?
  4. When I had one it had that too. This was 2 years ago or so.

    Yes the crown was the big problem witht he PRS 14 even though I prefer date dials, this design is classic, so I could look past the lack of one on the 14, but not the crown. It was a nightmare to use and it would cross threads etc easily. I used to loose my thumb and index finger surface skin trying to wind the crown.

    New release: Great watch, managed to scratch a little bit back of the lugs trying a few bracelets, which didn't fit, but that was my fault. Really like it and prefer it to my Precista 14. Though that is Antimagnetic to a much higher rating.

    Bulova moon watch reissue

    Someone put a grid up on the watch and I measured it as 42.5mm approx without the crown.

    Bulova moon watch reissue

    Has it been confirmed at 45mm? As there was uncertainty on WUS and other places of 42mm or 45mm.

    Praetorian Night Patrol PVD

    Hi guys, rather then starting a new thread I thought I would add to this one. I was next in the line after Bruce with the watch. I have worn it for a few days on and off. A wrist shot on a 8 to 8.25 inch left wrist. My wrists are thick rather than flat. Also have a night shot, not brilliant focus. I am of two minds on this watch mainly due to the tritium tubes as seen in the second pic. I can imagine them being very useful for people who wear them at night, or who work in dark environments, or at night. It's also a good sized watch for most wrists. Despite my wrist size I tend to prefer watches between 39 to 41/41.5 mm nowadays or with short lug to lug if over the forementioned sizes. There are a few things that put me off the watch: The first thing that puts me off is the bezel, it looks plasticky and cheap, and the white paint makes it look even cheaper. I think it is metal, but it doesn't look like that and I think the pvd and then the design of the bezel are the culprits. Second thing that puts me off is the busy dial. It is still easy to read the time with a glance, but the amount of things on the dial is quite off putting. No doubt people who just wear a watch, but use their computer, phone or wall clock to check the time won't be bothered. Thirdly for a quartz watch it is quite heavy. It does have a robust feel, despite the bezel. But when I wear a quartz I personally expect it to be forgotten under a shirt cuff, till I check the time. In conclusion, this isn't a watch for me. It's mainly the bezel and the look of it. I think it makes the watch look like a cheap plasticky watch, like the Marathon Navigator, which is plastic, which I had 6 or 7 years ago. I can see it being liked because of the excellent lume which is always on. The non pvd version looks far better and not cheap looking in comparison. This is a watch for people who want a beater in the same way I would consider a GShock or a Vostok priced watch.
