Well done. That's a looker. I like the fixed lugs for this type of watch. 42mm is great; L2L of 50/51mm is perfect; a bit thick at 15mm though. Priced right too.
only accurate watches are interesting

Any chance of offering drilled lugs with hex bars in the future?

Really nice. I'm considering purchase and leaning toward green. 42mm works. 51mm L2L is over my 50mm sworn limit but maybe make an exception. Trying not to buy anything else but maybe I'll give up something to justify the purchase.

Superb new piece sir.
I did consider that but I went for the white dial because it is easier to read and I thought it looked better because it echoed the hour markers.
Bad ass

Too bad you can't get a specops guy to wear it and sell it for three times as much lol

It's also a domed crystal so I'm guessing it wears like 13mm. The dome usually adds a mm or two.

Loving the Mileata - I'm in for a green. I always wanted a Resco, but thought they were WAaaaaaay overpriced. The Mileata is just perfect.
