Unit 7 - new Paradigm of Diver's Watches -$300

Postby koimaster » November 7th 2016, 10:03am

Unit 7 was created as a collaboration between a few individuals (7 to be exact). We are a combination of Collectors, Designers, Watch Engineers, Supply Chain/Manufacturing Experts and Brand Operators. With a combined knowledge of over 20 years in the watch industry. We have combined forces to bring you a new brand; The Unit 7. To celebrate our launch and our first model, we are offering our first model at an unbelievable price.

There is a unlimited supply of Kickstarter offerings. Some turn out to be a gamble, you just never know what you will get. At Unit 7, we have done it before, we know the industry. Our manufacturing partners are tried and tested so you are assured what you see is what you get.

The heart of the Carbon features a Miyota Cal.8215 movement made by Citizen in Japan. This particular movement has proven itself time and time again to be a highly accurate and reliable work horse.

Case

The Unit 7 Diver is made of full Stainless Steel. We have spent a lot of time perfecting the design and quality. We have spent our time in getting every single detail right.

20 yrs of experience and they give us a "dive watch" with an unprotected crown and partially indexed bezel in a copy-cat case. FFS

I guess I'm just another one of those commoners who looks at this Kickstarter stuff and every single time I think "Who needs this when there's Seiko and Citizen out there?"

Seven "experts" with a combined 20 years experience? A whole 20 years?

Well, that explains this POS. A loud and hearty "MEH!" Is being too kind.

Haters. That's a decent $60 watch.

Another one I've changed my mind about! "Unit 7"! That's a great name, and it makes me damp just thinking about how macho it is!!
