My Kadloo arrived last week but I could not wear it due to the short bracelet so i oredered a black leather nato for it and it arrived Saturday. Great watch for the money. For 262 and change i received a well built watch with a an ETA 2824-2 movement and so far it is dead on in its time keeping abilities. I would compare the quality of this watch on par with Steinhart having owned 4 or 5 of them this Kadloo compares quite niceley to them and these can be found rather inexpensively if you look. As far as the bracelet goes it is of good quality and even includes a divers extension. The only issue is it is small and if you have an 8 inch wrist forget it... it will not fit. But now the good news is I emailed Kadloo in Germany and for 30.00 dollars they are shipping me 5 additional links. I was impressed with their CS as they responded quickly to my request for additional links. My quest for a low priced Swiss movement watch with good quality has been accomplished and I have my eye on 2 more Kadloos.

Very sharp!

I have been keeping my eye on Kadloo for a while now. Good to hear their CS is up to par as well.

BTW, that looks great on the leather NATO. Really pulls it together nicely.

I want the option of the bracelet and for the low cost of the extra links I figure why not....but i do like it on the strap..will need an upgrade though as this strap was an ebay special

Wow, this is something Rich !:b..Looks so nice with the mixing of stainless

steel, as well as black finishes. Gives it a very eye-catching, along with unique

look. Has to be cool looking down at your wrist at this one. Even the strap that

you got for it is outstanding, as is Kadloo's customer service. Congrats to you !

It should be good for 300 meters, weather or not someone wears their watch in water is another story. i've read guys taking

their nice watches off regardless of resistance rating and others that wouldn't own a watch they couldn't wear constantly.

Very intriguing. The bezel looks exactly like an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean. The bezel sort of gives the watch it's look. It looks great on that watch also. Congrats on getting it, I have my eye on it now.
