Not sure if everyone caught Undone's Basecamp 2.0.

The Hong Kong based company is celebrating it's 5th anniversary by
upgrading the original model with 100m WR, and K1 mineral crystals.
But then have even added new California dial options. With all of the
new watches still having 40mm cases, cool dial, bezel options, and
strap options, along with Seiko NH35a automatic movement.

Some pictures guys...

i like these, but..(and there always seems to be one with me) i have a hard time being sold on a $300+ watch that doesn't have a sapphire crystal. its one of the things that always bugged me about seiko. (any why i replaced all my hardlex with sapphire)
considering these have no bracelet, there should have been plenty of budget for a sapphire crystal. just feels like they went the cheapest route on all fronts to maximize profits on this.

I do not like California dials, the "old school" faux patina radium lume treatment or Mercedes hand sets. Having said that, the blue or black diver with the textured dial would be the only choices for me here. I agree with WM on the sapphire crystal issue. I think the unnumbered K1 bezels are kind of cool. I've always said, all you really need is a well lumed pip... But overall, the price is still too high for an NH35A and a K1 crystal on a cheesy leather or NATO strap. :nod:

You know what's interesting about the mineral crystal vs. sapphire crystal
thing with these watches guys?!!

Is that since it's a customizable watch, and the type of crystal is an issue
with a lot of watch fans. It might be cool to be able to customize, or pick
which kind of crystal you want on the watch. :)

It could be just like choosing the dial, or bezel right Medic, and Forza?!! :thumb:
I bet they do that down the road guys.

Why not. Hope they pay attention to what is said on these forums. :smile-thumb:

:bounce: Would be neat if they did sir. ..But even if they don't, can imagine
that they actually think about some of the same things, and ideas we do.

I'm sure they do. But unfortunately, sometimes they have to worry about the bottom line $$$ a little bit more. :eek:hwell:
