Had nothing better to do, took another look; the crown is too long.

I kinda like it, but something about it just seems too gimmicky.

They have some excellent pictures of it. I don't like the weird angles of the hour and minute hand and the bent style of the second hand though.

Hey neat Terry, love how these seem like a traditional diver when you
first see them, and then have the slightest changing of gears with the
hands, and dial design. :clap: :headbang: Seems like it backs up the terrific
looks with some outstanding specifications also !

First time seeing these sir, so thanks once again !!! :)

I kind of like it. Crown and guards are unique, as are the dial/hands. Would make a nice option in a collection of frugals - assuming it's cheap.

I see per-orders are open. Cost is between $1500-$1800

Kind of like the stainless version with the bracelet

Veteran owned. Swiss Made.

I appreciate the slightly different handset from the norm.

Maybe in black (if I wasn’t done with micros?)

$1700 and comes with a generic mesh??
The case actually looks really good and original and then to slap on a generic bracelet kills it.

Summer 2019 delivery, so not worth the 10% discount IMO.

I think it would have been better with a printed dial with strong lume. The handset is unique, but I’d ditch all the shiny accents and make hands white.

I’m sure it’ll be nice, but shiny micros tend to look cheap to me.
