Default just came in today, BOREALIS

I think the crown should have more depth to it, for a 39.5mm dia. it feels and wears small.
** well made
** does not feel like a 39.5mm dia watch
** 300m rating
*** miyota movement designed for no date, no ghost click for date setting
** i really like the batons on the dial ( who cares if it doesnt glow xP )


**** still give this watch a thumbs up !

-- crown should have more depth to it( maybe i'm just picky or me fingers are too fat. )

Congrats!

I've owned a few Borealis pieces over the years myself.
Lack of lume is not a deal breaker on this guy.
The contrast of the hands and dial
work well.

Wear in good health!

Definitely has to get a thumbs up Kong ! Two thumbs up !!
You have all of those great specs, and then the design is something
different as well. Taking this classic, and timeless feel, and then
totally modernizing it with the ultra cool contrasting going on with
the dial. It's the same with Medic's watch ! ..Really is sharp !

Enjoy sir ! ..A giant congrats here !!!

the lume is not impressive, the indices being all black and the hour and minute hands have the black strip running down the middle.
The dial, watch hands are made with thick Swiss Made RC Tritec Black lume applied to it.
