I picked up the Tatoskok, I am happy with it and the quality. My first MWW, probably my only since Doug is closing down MWW after his upcoming Swan Song watch sells.
Here it is on a 6 3/4” wrist, my biggest watch, but it will work out for certain activities.


Just a normal shot, it’s 45mm


The bracelet is super comfortable and I like the way it looks. Some people didn’t realize that it is micro screws holding the links together and they tried with all their might to push them out.


It was a standard clasp, so I switched it with an extension clasp I had.


Not a bad watch at all. I wanted a lugless watch to save wear on my vintage Revue.
It’s 42mm, the perfect size for a lugless IMO.


If a brand brings out a 42mm lugless I’ll grab one and sell this one, until then it’s a keeper. I might play around with it trying various mod dials and hands when I get bored with it.

I like the Tatoskok 2 in orange. Great old school bracelet. Nice thin case at the expense of having to use a 9015. That bezel is just crying for a lumed ceramic insert. But, I suppose it would add cost. Nice crown guard and solid screwed down case back.
IMO, the Tropical Diver is yet just another sub homage not done very well.
Sorry to hear that they will be closing up shop.

I'm with Forza here trip_67, can't believe MWW is closing down. :(
Their watches always have had this amazing ability to stand out
among the rest, and this orange Tatoskok is the perfect example
of that ! :eek: :rockon:

I mean it really isn't like any other watch out there. But really
meshes the modern with the classic ! :clap2: Can see why you picked
this one up. Looks beautiful next to that terrific Revue !

Thanks so much for the phenomenal look, and review, and
BIG congrats there too by the way !!!

wanted a lugless case watch since i discovered the seiko tuna.

that one looks really sharp and isnt priced out way above its pay grade.

if i didnt already have too many watch irons in the fire i would consider one.

I was hesitant because it was a Kickstarter deal, I always said I wouldn’t buy through Kickstarter. Since it was MWW I decided to go for it and I’m glad I did. It’s big, but manageable and it’s not heavy on the wrist.
I’ve since bought two more kickstarters, the Ventus NorthStar and the NewMark.
The Newmark is due in December and I’m pretty sure I’ll like it.
The Northstar is brass and it is not my thing at all. I’m fortunate to be able to have got it cheap, most brass or bronze are kind of pricey. It’s made well and looks great, brass just isn’t for me.
