Meh. After the crap they pulled I can’t get behind anything they make.

Did they do other stupid things after the Anko disaster?

I liked some of the crepes designs, but this one is a big miss for me

Not that I know of. The Anko disaster was enough for me.

Was that the watch with the loose dial movement screws? It’s vaguely familiar after looking at the Anko pictures.

Yes. From what I recall they tried to make it right but still fell short.

Agreed.

I liked the models I’ve owned and I like this design, but they lost me as a customer with that crap they did.

What dive table is it referencing on the bezel? Whatever it is its even more conservative than PADI recreational tables. Strange :shrug:

Assuming it is in meters and not Feet like Doxa, but it is certainly different than most.

I’ve owned a few of their products (not the Anko) and found them to be well built watches. No complaints.

My only issue (which is probably something that could be said about most micros) is service parts availability is pretty much nonexistent from what I’ve heard. If you accidentally strip a crown, for example, you are S.O.L.

It’s a cool watch, but dollar for dollar, a Seiko Shogun is probably a better purchase if you plan to own it for a while just due to the service aspect.

I'm in for one. I really like the design (vintage Sinn) and the specs. All of Crepas past stuff has been nice quality except for the movement holder fiasco with the Anko. I'm looking forward to estimated delivery in October.

I'm also in for one, looks like a very sturdy dive watch.

I know for a fact this is true with this brand. I do not know with other micros since so far we have had good issues with them.

Have to say these look really mean Terry ! 8-)

The dial, along with bezel is fantastic, and both aggressive, and refined,
and then love the chunkiness of the case. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: ..Almost takes you
back with the funkiness, or looks like some amazing prototype watch
of some kind. Definitely am liking it sir !

Thanks very very much for the heads up, along with look !!!

Saw your post with Vegaban pic on WUS; Sinn 801 homage (never saw that sinn before).

I had the Anko and mine didn’t have any alignment issues. The quality was excellent, but knowing the movement spacer issue, I dumped it before I wore it. This one looks badass. :think:

People want the Propeller logo on the crown and Crepas decided to incorporate it in the final watch. For me, keeping the crown sterile is the way to go in this case.
It's a beautiful world! Gerald.

[youtube][/youtube]I was close to pulling it. They decide to add the date just before the campaign ended. Pissed off a lot of people.
