I just backed this. Been looking to add a pvd diver to my collection.

My first kickstarter, although I view this more as a preorder. I have this thing about not doing Kickstarter because most times you have no idea who you're backing, in this case I know Trintec has been around for quite awhile.

I've been liking the latest dial designs Trintec has been putting out, but the square BandR cases were a bit too aggressive and large for my tastes. This one really hits a sweet spot both in price, specs, and size. The $179 USD Kickstarter Price was too affordable to pass up. (KS Page has $239, but that is CAD)

States ship date is June 2016. So if they keep to that schedule, I just bought myself my Birthday present for next year :)

Here's a video on their Zulu 7 to give you an idea of the quality Trintec puts out.

This one will be hard to say no to. A pilot with a diver feel, hacking winding Seiko, flashlight Lume, 42mm (on the small side of my sweet spot) but big lug to lug to hug my wrist with a curved design on the bottom.
Yes please !

Backed this as well a couple days ago, simply too good a deal to pass up.
The PVD looks fantastic :)

Don't be shy next time Chris. Post a new thread if you see something you like and if it hasn't been posted yet. Cuz dood, if I had missed out on this, I would've had to come after you.
Luckily that didn't happen, so we're all good.
:smile-thumb:

Just noticed, the project is 200% funded and they even added 25 more slots to the black pvd version.

I just happened upon a post on FB followed the link and backed it from there, i was on my phone at work :) so couldn't do a thread until i got home.
Glad you got in on it though, definitely too good a deal to miss.
I'll certainly remember to start a thread next time i spot something cool :)
I haven't really come on here much since joining as you can see by my post count:( i'm more active on WUS, it's pretty cool here though so i think i'll visit more often:)

I still can't believe how good a deal this is, be even better if I liked rubber wave straps and the zulu was longer, but you can't have everything eh :)
