Congratulations Frans, that is one very nice looking watch and certainly appears to be good value for money. I like a watch without crown guards.

Something to look forward to. We're sure to hear more once you receive it.

Modelled after the first commercially available drive watch. I will bore the pants off of you all :D :D Mmmm, what strap? What strap indeed.

Helson has a similar watch but twice the price. Prometheus as well but that one is discontinued. I hope they hurry with their shipping. I've done some quick research and a tropic strap it will be!

I once thought (because of the Sub of course) that crown guards were THE feature to have on a dive watch. But just because everyone and his uncle applies this to their own 'design' it has become stale. I do like dive watches without crown guards as well. What is the chance to knock off a screwed down crown?

Very cool. It will be well worth the wait.

If it is half as well built as my Estoril, you will be a very happy camper.

Sure hope what happen to me doesn't happen to you during your wait.
I ordered one of my best watches ever and it seemed like a 1,000 pins
were sticking me while I waited!!!

Further, I couldn't keep from following the tracking info trying to decide
where it was in it's trip to me.n.

That's when I determined I needed to lighten up!!! Wife said I looked
like I could butt a hole into a wall.

Edit: ETA is 25 July, before noon.

During the past years I have cemented a rock solid patience, built by waiting for months on pre-ordered watches that were even more months late. And don’t forget KickStarter, a year over due for a reward to arrive is no exception. Or it never arrives. That’s why I have stopped with KickStarter, 3 projects down the drain and money lost.

The watch in the photo is a prototype, I don’t know how the production model looks. Will do in two days.

Sure it will be superb I have had my eye on Borealis for some time now the watches look outstanding.
I can see one clearly on the horizon for my rotation.
Enjoy and be sure to share some real life photos.

Me too, I wanted an Escoril but somehow missed it and they are sold out now. They had some blue oneís left but I always go for a black dial. The Cascais looks great as well, still some left.
