Oh wow Mark !!! These look fantastic !!!

They totally have that funky 60's-70's vibe with the sub-dials, and all around style it looks like.
But then throw in some ultra cool modern twists, and turns with the checkered bezel rather than
chapter ring, and streamlined hands. Holy cow, and even the rally holes mirror the sub-dial shape !

These are insanely nice sir ! Hadn't seen them until now. Thanks so much !!!

They do remind me a bit of the Tudor Heritage Chrono, but they are different enough to stand on their own IMO

Definitely am seeing the Tudor Heritage Chrono in there too Mark !!! Just love the whole something old, something new feel these have sir !

Have to agree Reflex !!! Each variation changes up the watch, and the straps bring in even more character, and help change gears also really !

Very nice, they do resemble the Tudor Heritage models, as Andrema stated, but I think they look even nicer. The Blue Dial one is especially tasty looking.

the seiko movement is what i like vertical clutch and a column wheel. I think this is a new Seiko chrono movement. Don't know why they aren't using it in their watches? Or are they?

I think these are sweet. Given the choice Id rather have the meca quartz for $299 rather than the auto for $699. Doesnt the meca quartz have an auto like appearance?

yadda yadda tapatalk

Kinda reminds me of the Vratislavia which kinda reminded me of the Tudor Chrono.
