22mm bracelet confirmed. It will definitely not be as long as the Marlin.
I would guess the case to be 42mm.

40mm would have a 20mm lug width for good aesthetics. My opinion.

Correct on the 42mm.

Don't think a 7750 can fit in a 40mm size case ? That's the movt being used BTW.

Sure it can. Sinn 356 is 38.5mm.

Sure it can -easily. The Tudor big block is 40mm. The IWC 3706 is 39mm.

The 7750 is thick but not extraordinarily wide

Now that we know it to be 42mm, I'm hoping the l2l be 49mm or less.

Stolen from WUS.
It was posted directly by H2O so I guess they won't mind

How is this "not thick"?

Anyways, I really like the dial, the hands are not for me.
I would have kept this SS

Hate those hands. Stick baton style hands or something and it'd be better. Overall, looks good, but kinda vanilla.

Goofy, but I guess that's their thing. Who cares about good looks when the pushers operate 10,000,000 meters under water?

I like the case but dislike the hands and goofy logo/date window.

Maybe this isn't the best picture by which to judge, but that dial looks really flat to me.

One of the attributes of a chronograph that appeals to me is when the sub dials have been dished out, giving the dial some depth. This just looks flat and kind of low budget.

I'll wait to see some additional photos, but this one isn't getting me to reach for my wallet.

What's the thickness on this one ?

I just really don't like those arrow hands at all. It's just not a cohesive design. They stand out too much.
I also almost never like those straight lights coming out of a round case and that thing in between the lugs a la UTS. So even with new hands and even if it was a killer price I'd be out unfortunately. But I am sure he'll sell out to his fans who love that style.
I love my recent cheik purchase, and it'd take a pretty exceptional one to dethrone it

There will be 2 style bezel options (turbine with sapphire inlay) and the rectangle edged with inclined ceramic inlay that follows the domed crystal, and I believe 3 or 4 dial options. One will have the subdials dished and will have depth to it.

It will be offered in bronze and SS cases

Oh and a video will be out soon showing all options available and allows you to visually see how each option looks in a full watch. It's a very cleverly done video.

Hate the hands and the bezel.
Case looks good but kinda thick looking all the way around.

And Danny, come on man... don't think a 7750 will fit in a 40mm case? :)

Clemens is thinking of adding a second handset option. He posted a poll in our FB group. I've suggested stick hands half skeleton to match the subdial hands. Similar to the Pam submersible handset

And also which is likely to happen as well is STD 7750 with closed caseback and TOP grade 7750 with display back options

Here's the 4 choices. Still hoping for a second handset choice option.

You'll be able to choose case finish, bezel, dial.

The blue in the render is not the actual blue you will see. It'll be the same sunray blue like my kalmar 2. Should look amazing with the black subdials and chapter ring.

My choice is the bottom right.

I like it, but the hands are an awful choice for a chronograph.
