With the Halios fiasco i think im going to order two of the Retrospect instead. I really like the looks just not sure of the dial markers and bezel being painted PVD, how durable will it be?

Waiting for actual pics of the Obsidian Black

I will order the Nabula Blue for sure

Good looking watch and doesn't appear as an homage to anything I can think of

Between the two I like the Delfin a lot more.

well, halios is raised markers, the nodus looks like a sandwich dial. same hands, maybe. but bezel, dial, case all seem different.

Not really like the Halios hands aside.
And it’ll wear much better
I’ll have a proto soon. I’ll post pics and impressions

There are many differences, but the first thing that popped into my head when I saw it was the Delfin

The Nodus is $300, if I’m not mistaken. The Halios was double that.

Maybe so, but there's are used one FS for $475 right now. That'd be my choice.

Yeap The Delfin is super nice and well made, I was impressed with the overall fit and finish. but it was too thick and heavy for me. I didn’t enjoy wearing it. I think like the Seaforth the Retrospect will be better suited for smaller wrists or those who don’t like heavy watches. But they’ll also be different, case, proportions, stadium bezel, sandwich dial...
so it’ll be another option for different taste.
I do like the very affordable price and the fact they do all the assembly work and regulation in the US at that price. Also no crazy ordering process 🤪
