Regular price will be $300

Good specs for the price even at the $215 price now that the $199 are sold through. Just a little plain looking.

"Accuracy within +5 seconds a day" No mention of testing or regulating the movements, they're just kind of assuming that'll happen? Hmm.

Checked out the campaign again, was reading comments and came across something very interesting. This watch is basically an exact copy of an AliExpress watch with a different logo printed on the dial. Same specs and cheaper via Ali.

Does look nearly identical, except for the date window on the Oceanica.
But that's easily done with a new dial.
Not the first time someone has started a campaign with catalog parts.

The thickness is a little odd though. Ali model lists 15mm and Oceanica has it as 12.5mm.
Wonder if that measurement includes the domed crystal?

And what I see as an unusual move, this project has also launched on Indiegogo.
Typically the Kickstarter campaigns launches and ends before moving to Indiegogo.
Haven't seen many examples of a live campaign running on both platforms at the same time.

Same price of $199
