HEREIS A LOOK AT THE NFWVIPERFISH. A NEW DIVER FROM NFW DUE OUT BY LATE NOVEMBER.......THESE ARE RENDERINGS ANDNOT THE FINAL PRODUCT. I WILL BE POSTING SOME COLORCOMBOS AND SOME PROTOTYPE CASE PICS INANOTHER THREAD SHORTLY.....ENJOY



CASE CONSTRUCTION:
The case is constructed in 3 layers, and are connected via the 4 “screw barrels” that protrude muscularly from the sides of the case: 2 on the left side and 2 on the right which are integrated into the crown protectors.


MOVEMENTS:

Automatic: Miyota 821A (the new, nicely decorated version of the very dependable 8215)

Chronograph: Miyota OS60 professional-grade quartz chrono (screw-locked chrono pushers)



- SIZE: 48mm (excluding the crown and screw barrels) x 18.5mm height



- CRYSTAL: 5mm thick sapphire, with anti-reflective coating



- Triple layer SuperLuminova on skeletonized hands, dial markers and bezel.



- W/R: 300 meters/ 1000 ft water-resistance



- Will come with BOTH the screwed-link bracelet (with diver extension clasp) and the fitted rubber strap.



- Will pass ISO 6425 test standards to be considered a “real” dive watch (this will NOT be a "fashion" dive watch!)

Now that you know a little bit more about it, here's what it looks like:

I love the watch but it will be out of my price range. Oh well, I'll live vicariously through those that get it.

I love NFW and own a Vector and a Autopilot. Th quality is outstanding and the company itself is topshelf as is the owner Geo who I consider a personal friend.



Here is my problem. Geo produces in smaller quantities which means the price point is a bit higher but its worth it because of the quality and company backing you get . I just hope Geo works some of his magic because I dont care what it is an 8215 engine in anything is not a 500 dollar watch. Im hoping he can bring this in at slightly over auto pilot MSRP but not to exceed 400 dollars.



just my 2 cents but im basing it on whats on the market and given a choice I will always go with a NFW piece but when the price elevates to a certain point it is in competition with all swiss made pieces. I look to see the Viperfish auto at about 450 and the chrono at about 375 to 400. If he can do that Geo will have the hit of the year on his hand

Geo deserves the hit of the year by the way. First cause Wave says so (lol) but mostly cause hes one of us and a great guy who ensures you get a top quality product and backs it up with great C/S

I talked to them last Thursday and the watch is going to be delayed until just after the first of the year- January they say. :( That diver case is unreal (they said the delay is due to some re-tooling issue with the case but I'm not looking for quartz watches- the OS-60 is pretty basic un-jeweled quartz at that. That case is so sick though- maybe with that 7750'ish dial configuration, I could find an auto-chrono mvmt to pop in there myself,... I mean , pay my watchguy to pop it in there- didn't want to imply I have the skills- merely the VISA. This Fox guy is such a perfectionist, this thing may not be out until Xmas 2010. Everything I've read about the brand has been positive so I guess he must know what he's doing.
