Or the new SS Armida A1 in 42mm?

The Borealis Spectre? Or their Bronze Anonimo homage ?

What's going on ?

I'm really hating the photobucket process to post on watch forums lately. Are there any easier alternatives ?

Crepas = fail.

Not feeling it at all.
That's the beauty of your own opinion, it's yours and yours alone! :smile1: And that's why I like it here so much!

My opinion on this watch is that it is fugly. Not up to par with the Cayman or others before it.

It would be a no brainer for me if I didn't have this one already.



If mine was black or blue version, I'd quickly sell to buy that Crepas. Didn't know it was 55mm lug to lug. Mine feels way smaller than that.

I think they hit a homerun here and it's smart that they are taking pre-orders until the 31st to maximize their sales/profit. They could've sold for more. The last couple of the preowned first generation went for asking price of more than $1000. This is currently $843 + or -

For me Crepas has had so many outstanding watches over the years, this one was a let down. And the ridiculous colors of the three bezels made It even worse. JMO

As a rule I look for 3 or more year warranties on watches that are over $500. My experience is 1 and 2 year warranties show some cutting of corners. I am very easy on my watches, but the bands take the blunt of my wear.

Just my opinion but I hope it helps in purchasing the quality you pay for!

Crepas makes a very nice quality product and this one looks gorgeous to me. I love the colors and the look. I can't wait to have it on my wrist. It doesn't hurt me at all to have a top grade 2892, 4K meters, quality mesh, or HV at 2 either.

Gotta put my vote in the dissenters camp on the Crepas. Just doesn't work for me. Plus... 55mm lug to lug. Giant watches are no good for me - my girly wrist is only 53mm wide itself.

Whoa, check that one out !!! :eek: :cool: All of the different colors remind you of how a lot of brands used to have that funky edge with their watches. :smile-thumb2:Love how there are a few variations for people too so they can choose just how funky, or freeky they want to get. Hadn't actually seen these so thanks a lot for the news you guys !
