Mileata on Kickstarter

Post by Graeme » Tue Sep 10, 2019 12:26 pm

Hi Guys,
I want to give you all a heads up. I have launched a kickstarter campaign for a new stainless steel version of the mileata watch. It has a lot of the things you have asked for over the years, drilled lugs, stainless steel, bracelet, Swiss movement, and keeps the 500 meter water rating and anti-magnetic protection. I hope it appeals to you guys, and if you can please spread the word across the other forums, every little helps. :pray:

Nicely done Graeme.

Any chance of a no-date dial option? Even if you keep same movement and “ghost date” in place, many prefer the clean symmetry of no date.

I prefer no date too personally but here it IS symmetrical, date is at 6.

Seems date sells better overall.Image

Looks nice. Any chance the SEA-02 will ever move forward?

I’m a fan personally and like the 42mm size. It’s perfect. The double dome will be nice and give a great view to the raised markers. I also like how you put the minute markers on the rehaut keeping the dial clean and uncluttered. The date at 6 is great to please the date folks and appease those who usually prefer no date due to symmetry issues.

At the moment I'm focusing on this kickstarter for Mileata, and if it goes well I might go back and look at the sea-02.

I am very excited about the Lir Series on kickstarter. Very clean look, quality components from a manufacturer that delivers watches that are rugged and durable. So many kickstarter programs promise the moon for low prices, but this one gives a lot of value. The issue often becomes one of quality control. I have full confidence in Graeme. Best of luck. John
