I'm also only going making 100 of these First Editions. The dial and hand design will then change.

Very nice - really like the dial.

But of course you might have just cost yourself one Classic II sale with that post! ;)

Wowzers. I wanted to keep the SEA-01 LE, but it was a bit too big for me. This one downsized in thickness is really appealing.

That looks great. Love the sandwich dial and subdial combination. Hands can change but the dial should be a keeper.
only accurate watches are interesting

Just so there is no confusion later, the width remains at 44mm and the lugs are 24mm so you can still use all your great straps :)

Love the watch. The size is not the issue for me, although a 42 would be perfect. It's the weight and height of the 01 that presents a problem. I'm wearing one with the bracelet and it is impossible to forget it's there. I do want to say, in terms of quality, the 01 is one of the finest micro's I've owned.

The bracelet adds a ton of weight. It wears like a dream on an Isofrane though.

I've been wearing it on a Nato and Zulu and it's wear better than a watch that size and weight should. I tried the dive strap that comes with it and it didn't work for me. I guess I need to try an Iso.

Graeme mentioned he was having new rubber straps made, but until then the Iso is the best strap for warm weather.

There are new rubber being made for the Sea-01 at the moment, I hope to have them in a month or two, and they are going to balance the watch better.

Wow.

I've been eying your watches Graeme and this one is very tempting.

Have pre-orders started?

Hi Rain_maker
Thank you.
No pre-orders have not started yet. I am going to wait until closer to the delivery time. To be honest, I don't like taking any money when I don't have any watches.
