Phobois Watch's Eagle Ray

Post by AtomicTom » Thu Sep 20, 2018 9:09 am

Has anyone checked out the Eagle Ray from Phoibos?

There look to be versions with either a black dial, or these blue to black dials as
well. With the dials having fifteen layers of BGW9 Super-Luminova on the hands,
and markers. Not to mention a 41mm stainless steel case, 300m WR, AR coated
double domed sapphire crystal, saw tooth-like unidirectional ceramic, and stainless
steel bezel, leather strap, and Miyota 9015 automatic also.

A few pictures guys...

What’s with these names?

Phobois sounds like a tasty Vietnamese noodle dish!

Yeah I’m not in love with the logo but many apparently are.

Lady boy = noodle dish.

I can’t speak to the tasty part.

We are getting better, the watch itself has survived 6 posts of DWC scrutiny but alas, the name didn't make it off the mark.
I actually like this one, the case shape is nice, dial layout is clean, even the date window doesn't suck. Bezel is quite cool with sawtooth edge. Even the logo looks neat and so thankfully masks the TOTALLY DUFF name!
What is that? It sound like a communicable disease? "I am very sorry, but you have a severe case of Phoibus and only a few months to live"
I don't know why micro brands are struggling with names, it's all about perceptions. Naff name, naff product?

Dive watch with leather strap. I’m not a huge fan of the hands but they are legible. I don’t mind the logo but that name is crap!

Octo Pho. If it pronounced like Pho?

“Fubious,”. Sounds like somebody trying to pronounce Fabulous very badly.

I'm glad they don't have their name on the dial :lol:

otherwise it's a nice little rip-off amalgam... I would hope they're not more than a couple hundred bucks :raised:
