Just checked out these new March LA.B watches. Have you seen them?

The Belza Surfer looks to have a 40mm stainless steel case, 200m WR,
an AR coated sapphire crystal, diver's bezel with aluminum insert, blue,
green, and black dials with luminous hands, and markers, Miyota 8215,
and nice bracelet, and bracelet options also.

Just a couple combinations...











OceanicTime, and March LA.B with more everyone...

This extract taken from the Oceanictime site relating to this watch:

Thoughts? Quite a nice looking albeit generic diver, sorry - surfer with a one or two nice design touches such as the engraved crown and bezel BUT . . .

a 1,445€ price tag for a non-hacking Miyota 8215 which is essentially a 34USD movement; is (and you’ll have to excuse my French here, folks) optimistic as f#ck; in fact it is bordering on taking the bloody piss, but hey, if they can sell them for that all power to them.

:laughing: That's hilarious.


It looks "ok" to me. I thought the dial size compared to the large bezel seemed a little funny.

That really is so funny Steve, Jeff, and Forza !!! :bounce:

Love TLex's honestly, and also yours' ! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

Actually really like the watch on this end, and like how the different
dial, and bezel combinations change things up. But yeah, once you
hear that a movement in a watch actually cost $34, and the watch
costs what it does here. It's really stunning !

Imagine if this watch was $340 instead?! :)

Thanks a ton once again guys !!!

Me too... Huge bezel, tiny dial. Guess they like their bezels big in France. :eek:
If the Maginot line had been that wide the German invasion would have failed! :D

I wish I hadn’t seen it but it can’t be undone :D Odd proportions, fancy crown thrown in to make it ‘interesting’ and oh boy, that extremely ‘enthusiastic’ sticker price makes me wonder what audience this watch is aiming for. Even deducting one thousand Euros from that price doesn’t make it any better. End of grumpy old man’s rant :D
