I recently purchased my first Timeless head. I went with the scalloped head and .95 base plate, polished finish. The fit and finish is top notch with no tooling marks, very very clean. 
In anticipation of my new unit arriving, I didn't shave for four days. I whipped up some lather, Local Gent California Barber, and loaded a Gillette SharpEdge Yellow. Something that I noticed, straight away, is how the blade is held in the head with a more pronounced bend/ curve than my Above The Tie heads. The blade angle reminds my of the Rockwell 6S and it shaved very similar to the Rockwell with the 6 plate. 
First pass, WTG, felt much milder than I expected. Shave angle was pretty intuitive but also had a smaller sweet spot than my ATT H1 or H2. Second pass, XTG, again very smooth with less audible feedback than ATT.
Third pass, ATG, was freaking amazing!!! Much smoother but again the angle was a little finicky. A few touch ups and I had a BBS level shave, without much effort. 
I will say that the ATT H1 has more feedback and when going ATG, on the back of my head (head shaver) It's easier to feel the blade angle. 
At this point, I'd say the Timeless is the winner on my cheeks and ATT on the dome. I wanted you to see the blade exposure and angle of the bade, in the heads. Both are damn fine Razors.

Interesting review obviously very personal to the individual, but I find the Timeless OC 0.95 to be louder than the H1 and also to work over a larger angle. The H1 or the SE2 (first run) are my favourite ATT razors. The Timeless also seems to work better over a larger range of DE blades. Shark yellows being my preferred blade in this razor.
