Thank you for posting those. I have ALWAYS liked that model and the different options, but have never seen one in person. I think the Triple Black one and the one you have are REALLY nice.

James, the triple black is super stealthy. I would have gotten it but, I have a triple black Corduba Ibiza, and a black Throttle. If I could sell them both, I will definitely get it.

Very nice looking watch. I would consider this at some point. There are just so many that I would like to own and only so many that I can buy. LOL

One of my favorite parts of this watch is the diver's extension clasp feature. It gives additional sizing flexibility, and easier removal.


Note the micro adjustments

Fully extended

Thanks! this was a strange one. I actually saw someone wearing one of these at a dinner I went to about 6 months ago and was surprised by the look and feel of the watch. Was much more substantial then I thought it would be and I liked the design (as you can see in BlackStorm's actual pictures of the watches). I started researching them and liked what I saw on how they were made and what was actually inside them. I started casually bidding on them about a month ago but lost a few of the auctions or missed some good ones. Tonight I finally won one, and the price I paid was really low, so makes it worth it even more! Looking forward to receiving the watch soon.
