Incoming Speedie Mk2 - LANDED -disappointing update :(

Recommended Posts

Don't get me wrong, I love my speedie mk 2 rep, but it's just too big at 45mm for my astronaut wrist so is never selected for missions. I have ordered this rather MK2-ish 42mm Pulsar from F Hinds and it should have splashed down when I get home on Thursday. The dial is plain black until you activate a digital feature. Can't wait. If they come up on sale I may even get another for modding, maybe a speedie dial with a Seiko VK67 12hr chrono movement?

Well the Pulsar Speedie 2 has landed and to be honest it wasn't worth the wait.

 

For starters it was advertised on the dealers website as 42mm, so I thought that would be great as the gen mk2 is 42mm and my 46mm rep is just too bug. Well guess what- it's also 46mm. Worse still it is 4mm longer at 55mm lug to lug. It is enormous. Then there is the dial, I mistakenly thought the lcd only showed when activated, but it is there all the time. Mmmm.

 

And....

The hour markers are shiny, not white like I thought, and the 12o'clock marker is not straight. Lastly the second hand sits half a second off.

 

Let's hope the 30day return feature actually works eh.

 

Back to reps for me.

just an update anyone who is thinking of buying from F HINDS jewellers (in UK) they stood by their 30day refund policy, money straight back in the bank as promised. 

Maybe worth a look for any gen Casio, pulsar,  sekonda, Seiko stuff.
