Default Baltic's BICOMPAX 001 and HMS 01

Have you guys had a chance to see these new watches from a company called Baltic?

Based in Paris, the company has the new 1940's style BICOMPAX 001 dual register chronograph, and HMS 01 three hander. Both with 38mm stainless steel stepped cases, cream, black, blue, or slate gray dials with nice numbers, markings, and markers, hesalite crystals, Seagull ST-1901 automatic chronograph, or Miyota 821A automatic, leather straps, and more everyone.

A few pictures...

I like the minimalist three hand white dial. But I'm done with chrono's. Look well built, I like the domed plexi- crystals. But for that kind of coin, they could upgrade the movements.

Definitely Forza ! Am wondering if they make more variations down the road if they might change the movements in them. Love the three hand also to be honest with you, it's perfect. But can't lie, the chronograph isn't bad either.

That silver gray chrono with blue hand is my favorite. But agree would like to see a Seiko movement for the cost.

Elegance and simplicity. Especially like the looks of the chronograph models.

Still wary of non-Swiss movements, though, except for those made by Seiko, that is.

I'm with you guys on all fronts here.

They did a nice job, but a Seiko movement would kick things up even more, and make these extra cool !!!
