Default Ardor & Forge's Rothrock

Not sure if everyone had time to see Pennsylvania's own Ardor & Forge's
Rothrock yet.

These new watches have sand-cast texture 42mm stainless steel cases,
100m WR, sapphire crystals, blue, green, black, and white dials with SLV
coated hands, and markers, along with full lume white dial. On top of
that, you have leather lined canvas straps, and even oak accented crowns,
and rotors. With the Seiko NH35 automatic being behind it all.

A few pictures...
















W&W, and Ardor & Forge with more for you...

I like it. So far I've only seen Invicta take sandblasting cases this far. To the point that it almost looks like stone. The wood accents are perfectly not overdone. A chapter ring, a little crown cabochon and some cool rotor décor. I like the white and blue dials, nice hand set and the fact that someone was finally able to build a fairly thin case with an NH35 movement. I wonder if they accomplished that by leaving the date wheel off ? Which is the only thing I don't like. That, and it seems to be crying out for a better bezel. And while they're at it, a better price.

It really does look like some kind of stone right Forza?!

Add in the wood accents, and you get double the uniqueness,
along with fun, and I think the wood can be left out also, and
is just an option. ..Oh, and fantastic eye with the thin case,
and no date thing with the NH35 here ! Didn't even realize it
to tell the truth.

They definitely are different, and maybe next time around they
will add in a different bezel option, or two for you.

Thanks very much for chiming in sir !

There is something missing, but I can't figure it out yet. It's just OK

Eddie, am thinking that something could possibly be the bezel for
you there. ..Once Forza pointed it out I notice it now too.

Have to agree Steve, the lume does look amazing ! It looks so
great, and so bright that maybe it overshadows the earthy look
of the watch. It's really something sir. However, have to say am
liking it a lot sir.

Art, actually do remember her ! She is an action star who
makes a ton of cool martial arts movies. Thanks for connecting
the two sir ! They both 'rock' !! ..See what I did there?!
