Not sure if these Orient SK (Super King) Diver Retro reissue have been posted. 41.7mm case, caliber F6922, hand wind and hacking, mineral crystal Now available.

Cool! They haven't been posted. I completely missed the announcement for these back in May and only discovered these existed a few days ago. I think they were just released here. Hard to believe they are being discounted already. I really like them. I was gonna say these are Sea Kings not Super Kings and then just read this.
Naturally, the watch was defined by the “SK” emblem on the dial, which, contrary to popular belief stood for “Super King” and not “Sea King”. We’re proud to say that this reissue of the SK Diver is exactly that: a reissue. While this model was first released in the early 1970s, it was actually reissued for the European market about ten years ago. This re-release marks the first time it is available worldwide. The watch has been reproduced to be as close to the original as possible, including the case, the tapered bracelet, and even the studded hour markers. It measures at the same 41.7mm across, which in the ’70s was a bit large. The dial displays the original text, except that it reads “22 Jewels” instead of “21 Jewels”. That’s because the movement has been upgraded to our caliber F6922 with is automatic, hand-winding, and hacking.

I wish they would have gone for a lighter color blue but I like the other 2 colors.

Perhaps they went a little too retro with these. The dial color band doesn't appeal to me, not commonly used. It's appeal doesn't seem to be widespread, though certainly a standout for those who like it.

Looks good to me! 3 dial colors; green, blue, and black. 38mm. Miyota 9039 automatic movement. I don't see any other photos on their site. Just the renders at the link below. Pricing appears to be $500. In a couple replies to their Instagram post, Traska says they plan to have it on KickStarter by mid-October and backers should have their watch by January.

I think this is the one thing that stands out to me as surprising:
Surgical grade stainless steel is already tough, but the application of our proprietary scratch-resistant coating makes it significantly tougher. Applied to all exterior steel surfaces, the coating prevents your watch from attracting the typical scratches and swirls that occur all too often during the rigors of everyday life. 316L steel measures around 200HV on the Vickers hardness scale — after our hardening treatment, we’re able to achieve a hardness rating of almost 1500HV.

The last 3 IG posts from Zodiac are teasing something space related. The people in the comments appear to not know that this page linked below already exists. An upcoming recreation of the Astrographic that was released to celebrate the moon landing. 182 pieces of each style and coming 8/19/19. Not much more info than that at the moment.

Some follow-up to this one. A blog/publication called The Wrist Watch Review has released some more details of the Astrographic ahead of Zodiac's official release on Monday. I find it hard to believe this information was supposed to be released in this manner. I have added the link below and the details and specs of the watch as reported in the WWR write-up.

Timex is adding more to their Automatic/Mechanical lineup. They look nice, I've kinda wanted the Marlin for awhile but like the Waterbury.

Cool. I've been impressed with how quick Timex has been to embrace mechanical watches again. Looks they they are the same movements, base Miyota automatics. Prices starting at $249. Two different case shapes, one 40mm, one 42mm. Gear Patrol has a short article. GP is sometimes not so thorough but surprisingly they often have watch news before a lot of the bigger watch publications.

Yeah, that article was on my google feed. I was surprised because I couldn't find anywhere else reporting it. I like the Black 40mm.
