Hey everyone, have you seen Mitch Mason’s Maelstrom?

This watch is still in the works, and will have details like 40mm
stainless steel cases, 300m WR, nice green, gray, black, and
blue sunburst dials with cool hands, markers, and even color
matched date wheels. Not to mention internal bezels, dueling
crowns, and Miyota 9015 behind a 3D stamped case-back.

Some pictures for you...























W&W, and Mitch Mason with a lot more...

Very well done, don’t see anything to nitpick. Nice myota movement and killer lume and AR. Sandwich dial is a plus too.
Question is, do I need another diver??

I guess the answer depends w4. 🙂 On whether you really
really enjoy divers, and can’t get enough. Or maybe like the
super compressor look. Otherwise, it’s just an opportunity
to look at some cool pictures of a cool watch. (y)

That’s what I always end up doing honestly. ..Looking. 😊

Want to thank you for chiming in, and also for your honesty !!!

Oh how I wish this Mitch Mason guy (as well as Dan Henry) would have a logo designed instead of plastering their first and last names on the dial. What kind of narcissist do you have to be to do this?

Yet another guy who has to have his name etched in history on something. Otherwise a nice fake super compressor for a nice price. I've become a big fan of the Miyota 9015. I actually think the accuracy will be better than in W&W's review unless they are using it unadjusted. But since I just bought the Burgundy/Coral Roebuck. I'll take a pass on this one.

Mitch Mason doesn't exist (he might, but he is not a person related to this watch). It's a brand started by a man named Benedict Ong, who lives in Singapore.. Their About Us page explains it in detail: ABOUT

I suppose Mr. Ong could do a logo using his initials "BO", but I have a feeling that the watches might not sell very well under that brand name...

Or B.ONG - bad name choice either way for an otherwise nice looking design.

Intriguing points on the name thing Eric, and a Forza !! 😉(y)
And from what Hector is saying, that’s not even the person
behind the brand. 😮 ..Some terrific detective work FB !

You know what would maybe be a neat option guys?
Would be for them to make that whale on the back of
this case their logo. 😀 Honestly, it would look great,
not to mention be instantly recognizable, and stand
out right?!

So glad you liked it the way it is NoTimeToLose also
by the way, and want to thank ALL of you for chiming
in like this !!! ..Really appreciate it ! (y)(y)

B.O.N.G might be far out with earthy type commune groups. Then again, they're probably not into time

Good point Steve ! 😄

Was thinking about this, even the name Maelstrom would be
a neat name for them, and would be different too. 🙂😎

Thanks a lot for giving your two cents on these !!!

I would think they would take some interest in the phrase "time is the fire in which we burn".....
