Ordered the blue dial/no date version earlier today along with a Seafarer II. Both watches have great specs for the price. Ordered their rubber strap first, then used that order number to get 15% off the pre-order of those two watches. The Batial will be my first bronze watch.

That crown just doesn't look good to me. I don't know if it is the placement it the shape with regards to the case.

Big congrats ! I'd get a Seafarer 2 also in blue/orange if I could afford to pay and wait. I think it'll be a huge hit. The case is a proven favorite and I love the turbine bezel on my Orca. I'll be on the prowl when they pop up.

As for the bronze beauty! That should be a knockout piece too. Bronze can be really addicting. I used to love rose accented watches. Bronze is kinda similar but every day of changes a little with the patina. Just sold my only bronze piece to get a CNC'ed bronze Tuna mod soon. I'm a huge fan of offset crowns. This should be killer ! I can foresee you loving it so much that you want to try another bronze piece in future with green dial.

I agree it looks out of place. Should be at the 3 o'clock position IMO

It is an homage of older Anonimo's hence the crown at 4.

I think the issue is, at least from the rendering is the crown shape and how it sticks out from the case compared to the Anonimo's

Example

Lovely looking watch! I might just spring for one of these. The only thing that I don't like is the wait... :/

Also ordered the blue dial with date. Do wish it had black background instead of white on the date complication but for me it's a minor detail! And since I had also ordered the Estoril the 15% discount applied on the Batial. And now the waiting game for both! I really like what Borealis has done as of late and since I already have 2 Seadragons I can attest to the quality over price that this Co. will probably deliver. And though the present renderings (IMHO) don't do it justice, I have no doubt that the Batial will turn out much better than the present renderings would indicate and can't wait to see the pre-production live renderings.
