Sure:
Comes with sapphire, solid links & end links, ceramic insert, engeneer II style bracelet with screws (not pins) that is better than a Seiko at 2x the price, screw down crown, with smooth action, good lume (not Seiko lume tho) well finished, fit very good, S II NH38A engine. Good heft, but easily wearable, 22mm lugs, $219.00 USD. Can't find a fault with it so far. Bezel action is perfect. I'm quite impressed.

I have seen these on a number of occasions via emails from Island Watch. They do look excellent for the money, very attractive looking pieces too. Enjoy

Now that is just incredible Roarry, and I swear it looks like it rivals
the look, and quality of some of the big brands out there !

All you have to do is check out the wave pattern dial to be extra
impressed. I mean the blue, and the waves are amazing, and so
is the depth ! Love the bezel finish, and watches finish in general,
and how about that bracelet?! Yowza, enjoy, and huge congrats !!!

Wonder if the Octopussy on the dial inspired Ian Fleming to write Octopussy?
Roger Moore if I recall starred in the film version.Bond girls RULED IMHO.
Also wonder what % of watches have blue dials? Squale uses blue a lot. Not
that I could afford em.

Crazy how these micro brands dominate in specs for price. Sapphire, ceramic, lumed bezel, 300m WR, screws instead of pins, solid links/end links, etc., WOW! And what a great looking blue!

Congrats on that one! It's a brand I've been looking at, until getting distracted on Seiko, haha, but geez that's a LOT of watch at that price.

I see they had two versions of this, only difference apparently being the movement, NH38A and the other was NH35A?

Caliber Corner's website is down at the moment, and I can't find a comparison of the differences between these two movements? Only reference I could find is that the 38A is often used with an open heart design.

The 35A model is sold out, at the moment. It was running ten bucks higher. Looks like there might be a one hour difference in PR. BPH are the same, yes?

Reminds me of Tisell when they first came out. Yea, they are basically a Rolex clone, but at around $200 brand new, they offered a lot of value. Screw in links, solid links, sapphire crystal, miyota 9015 movement, ceramic insert....

I may have to get a phoibos at some point just to check them out. They look really nice. According to their website you can get a version with an ETA movement for $500.

The NH35 has date complication whereas NH38 does not, and adds an open balance wheel design. That is all the difference I could find.
