I went four damn years without purchasing a stupid watch. I ordered this Karlskrona and now the fever is burning... I've already decided on the credit card and the next watch. A Colt 41..

I screwed myself. I wanted a simple grab and go watch with no date. I’ll more than likely just sell this

Don’t know. The strange thing is that when I ordered, I fully intended to order the ND and swear that I selected it. But I paid through PP and that says date. I think it’s a moot point at this juncture, with shipping and everything anyways.

I’ll just throw it in a canvas a see how it goes.

That’s a great combo.
Date looks great at 6 and is well integrated, even has a small lume marker.

Todd would have swapped I bet.
I love the blue. Keep it

Some words from a nice review from a satisfied customer will surely help my otherwise hell-fire day!

"Mine showed up today, and I am pleasantly surprised. First impressions are that this watch is nice and simple. The case is conservative in both size and shape, the dial is big and open with a good semi-matte orange that is a departure from my other orange-dialed watches. The case finishing is simple yet I have found no errors or imperfections. The dial printing is surprisingly crisp for the very low price. I generally do not care for flat printed indices with lume pods/patches, as I like depth and interest in my dials, but I am really ok with this. It is going to be a good work watch. The crown operates smoothly with only a little bit of lash/play of the hands when setting the time. The winding action is smooth, and the date flips right at midnight. There are no hand alignment issues, and both the second and minute hands are nice and long. The crystal is nice and clear even on the edges and the dome gives great distortion at angles. The lume will be tested on bedside table tonight to check longevity. All in all I am pleased and think Todd put together a well made diver with no defects and good style. The price we got it for is almost a no brainer and to be honest, I expected some flaws as is common with low price micros. I cannot find one on this piece and that is a testament to his determination to deliver a solid product that is exactly as described. Good for him. I will not be selling this as it is perfect for cycling/yard work/job, and it will be nice to wear a simple watch."
