Default Benrus's SeaChief

Has anyone had a look at the new Benrus SeaChief by chance?

The SeaChief looks to pay tribute to the Benrus Type I. Having details like
an eye-catching 44mm stainless steel case, 300m WR, sapphire crystal,
two tone diver's bezel, and black dial with vintage/tan Super-Luminova
coated markers, and hands, and red 12. Not to mention a sand NATO, and
Japanese automatic also.

Have some pics right below...









OceanicTime, and Benrus with more information...

Looks great, but the bezel is gimmicky in my opinion.

Art, think they were kind of relaunched not too long ago. So that's
why you hadn't seen much from them, and maybe forgot about
them. They look to have some other watches also it looks like.

Robotaz, am seeing what you are talking about with that bezel
there. ..Kind of looks like something we might see on a classic
watch, or GMT maybe right?!

I just think it should be a minutes scale or hour scale, one or the other. Not much confuses me with watches. I like regulators, jump hours, tachymeters, etc. That bezel is distracting to me.

@robotazky

You make a fantastic point Robotaz. It does really grab your attention.

Wonder if maybe they will eventually have multiple versions, and might
add models with different bezels at some point. Would be fun to see !
