I like it. Panerai PAM389 meets Zelos Hammerhead vibe to it. Luckily not 47mm like the aforementioned beasts.

Looks good! An interesting pre-release review here talks about the military inspiration for the case shape and indices.

43mm is my size! Like what I see so far. The photos do not show much focus on the case finishing though.

Received an email that it will not launch as planned due to “technical difficulties” with KS.

Might as well because the Hamtun H2 is getting all the limelight.

I wonder if they'll show up on Indiegogo, as I believe they are a little easier without a all or nothing ethos
