 Wow.  Amazing work.  The duffel's fit would worry me a bit, but as you said the fabric is amazing.  I have the cashmere Cameraman and I love it.  Even if the fit is a bit big you could just layer it.  Congrats Phil.
 Thanks!  I absolutely love it.  Here is the other side:  Again, a poor picture, but you can at least see the reference it is now.   Really a great looking piece if I do say so myself.  I'll never change the strap and I love the brown as it can worn more casually.  The "fauxtina" doesn't look faux to me and looks quite rich.  As some of you may remember, I'm not used to a smaller watch like this as my VSAs were all 44mm, but I am used to this already.  I've read that many...
So I don't recall how it started, but a couple of years back I started looking at "higher end" watches.  I think it was the Black Bay or the Ranger, the latter of which is still very high on my wish list, that caught my eye.  I'd previously worn Victorinox Swiss Army Mavericks (the VSA dive watch) which I'd scored for $90-$125 each on eBay and promptly replaced the rubber straps with Natos.  I never thought I'd want another watch as I liked the look and feel of the watches...
 Did you do search?  I have googled "is __________ reliable?" and it sometimes yields results.  IMO Chrono24 should have a better system for determining the reputation of a seller.
I placed two orders with Unionmade on the first day of the sale.  Second order shipped before the first order.  I ordered ceramics and they were packed amazingly well.  First order finally came today.  I ordered five pair of Anonymous Ism socks and only got three pair in the package.  I checked my credit card and they refunded me for the two pair of socks without my having to ask.  So for me it all went well and another great Unionmade sale.  Still one of my favorite...
 Not familiar with the Lutz.  From what I'm seeing though it's sized with 38, 40, etc and not medium, large, etc. 
Asking this again, but can anyone tell me the difference between the sword hands 1931 Reverso and the syringe hand version in terms of the lume on the hands and the hour markers?  Online pictures are tough to tell, but it looks as though the hour markers are the same color, but perhaps the syringe hand version is slightly darker.  Same for the hands, but I'm wondering if anyone knows this for sure.
   Cheers lads.  I probably missed a few as well.  Anyway, just quite surprised at the selection considering it's STP.  Another thing to note is that with a lot of what they have the weight and density of the fabrications can vary from piece to piece.  The Standen for example, which if it shows up in a medium please PM me, isn't as thick a waxed jacket as Barbour generally does.  In fact I would call it thin.  Also, some of the jackets have some nice or interesting...
Thanks for posting about the STP guys.  Some great stuff.  I just grabbed one of every piece of the Norton and Sons collaboration styles they had.  They were the final SS collection for the Barbour x Norton and Sons line and I passed on them back in the day.  The Barbour outlets had them this past Spring and Summer, probably cheaper as well, but there isn't an outlet near me and they won't ship.  Norton and Sons is a Saville Row tailor for those of you who don't know....
Thanks for the replies about the Reversos guys.  One more question.  Can anyone confirm or deny that the hour markers of the two watches I posted are the same?  They look to be, but tough to tell in the photos.
