I like this idea. Not only can you offer both versions without having to do so continuously, but the Kickstarter watches could become classics, similar to the ND Longines Legend reissue.

Hard to know for sure from pics. The clasp looks big in the rendering, but it might be like, say, the Sinn U clasp IRL: that thing is thicker than many dress watches, but it balances out the brawny U divers well. I'm inclined to trust your judgement on that.

If you do a Kickstarter for the no-date, please make it a deposit thing as some may not be able to do it all at once, or give us some notice please.

Yes, self serving post.

+1
That was a huge mistake on their part imho, that clasp was the worst on the wrist. Graeme this looks really great, I love this design! Can't wait to see it in the real world!

Great revisions. I'm normally not a bracelet guy but that looks perfect on it. Jury is out on the clasp.
only accurate watches are interesting

Yes,

The good news is it will have a Swiss movement, SW200 :thumbsup: and there will be two dial versions, a black dial and a blue dial.


So I will give you the Euro and approximate conversion (the prices are set in euros but Kickstarter will show you your currency as far as I know)


For everyone outside the EU

€500 early bird only 25 pieces USD542

€550 after early bird USD596

€1000 - 2 watches USD1,084


For everyone in the EU, this includes VAT

€615 early bird only 25 pieces

€676

€1230 for 2 watches



There will be a €40 shipping charge for all.

The Kickstarter campaign will start in a few days, I will let you know as soon as it goes live, it will run for 30 days.


The RRP for the standard version will be around €900, so this special edition is a great deal. :cheers:

Only 25, sounds like a WIS Black Friday event in the making.

Oh well. I sounds good but without a little time to squirrel away I'll be on the bench for this one.
