Circula, a previously defunct watch brand from Germany, was revived as a microbrand in 2016. The AquaSport automatic dive watch is their fourth model. It is inspired by a Circula skin diver from the 1970s and designed with feedback from a German watch forum. The buyer has a choice of two Swiss automatic movements, the ETA 2824-2 or STP 1-11. Prices start at EUR 419,33 €. Circula is taking pre-orders directly through their website.

WatchMann also carries Circula.
Don't see these on his site, but might be worth giving a call to see if he'll carry and/or can match the preorder pricing.

Placed my order for the gray/orange variant with STP 1-11 motor.

BoR bracelet included at no additional charge. I told him to keep the rubber strap and he offered to include a mesh. We'll see what arrives.

Oh, and there's a ten Euro discount if you sign up for his newsletter. So, net is $484.25 shipped, with two bracelets (hopefully).

Nice designs, but the dial printing looks cheap as hell. Uneven color, uneven texture, blurry. Really takes away from the look and feel of the watch.
