Whoa, liking that one a lot Terry !!! :o :thumbsup:

Love when watches have a straight forward clean, and semi-classic style to them. But then also
are able to throw a slight curve ball at you too, and stand apart from the crowd ! :thumbsup: These
are bold, but without going overboard really. Very nice sir ! Hadn't seen these yet. Thanks !!!

The dial reminds me of one of those Benarus/Stevril (I think?) Megaladons.

I like it a lot.
Bluering hands. Ecozilla markers. Prometheus Poseidon bezel insert. Lots of cues from other watches but I like it.
Short lugs. Hopefully not too long lug to lug.

Need to decide if I
a. Want to up the watch count by one when I'm trying to go the other direction, and
b. Will tolerate 16mm height

Otherwise I'm tempted to buy one.

16mm is pretty much a no go any watch that I would buy.

I have been watching these. I think the design and proportions look pretty good. I purchased the C3 version yesterday when they went on sale. I had the Helm Vanuatu (their first watch they released). I could not believe the build quality of that watch with an integrated bracelet for the $275 price. Absolutely incredible for the price.

I'll shoot some pics of the KHURABURI when it gets here.

Why isn't the bezel aligned in the pics? Off by a click or don't they line up?

I'm sure your pics will make me regret not getting one. I was almost certain I was getting one but the Meg 45 happened.
