Oceanica Reef - Affordable Diver

Post by koimaster » May 23rd 2019, 3:23pm

Hello fellow watch lovers! Oceanica Watch Company from New York is back again to create a great high quality affordable automatic dive watch. The REEF was produced in a test run to 40 people a year ago and now I am ready to offer it to the public, considering the great feedback I received on this model! When choosing a watch, there are certain specifications and elements I look for at certain price ranges. Unfortunately, some companies are offering very high prices without these characteristics that truly make a great everyday automatic dive watch. Some of these include a reliable, accurate, automatic movement - GREAT luminescence for visibility in the dark - Sapphire Crystals - and fine brushing/polishing work on the case itself. I have found a way to bring all of these great components and throw it into a classic styled diving case for a very reasonable price, handing over most of the profit to the end user, YOU! This watch is 200M Water Resistant, suitable for shallow diving, and tough and robust as a watch can be for everyday use. This style of watch can also be seen in the early Vietnam war era, in movies such as Apocalypse now with Martin Sheen.

Yep.

HIMQ, San Martin, Heimdallr, Proxima all have their version. Likely all with better QC and for less $$.

This fuckstick comes along with a markup for his microbrand bullshit and will walk away with a ton of cash. FFS.

Yep, love. You can buy Crotons and Invictas with NH35s for like 60 bucks. Microbrand pinheads can suck my dick. All this sheep fleecing. Fuck micros.

"...handing over most of the profit to the end user, YOU!"

Come the fuck on.
Best of luck to all my longtime friends here. Please stay safe, always.

But that’s not what Martin Sheen was wearing in the movie. If it was the Kickstarter writeup would have said so.

As an update to this, the project is fully funded. And I agree with BL about

Better looking watches than this offering by far from WRwatches who offers the above brands in quotes. https://www.wrwatches.com/watch-shop

So, now this company has a website/store front, and yet they still have to spread their ass cheeks on start-kicker. So much for rolling one's profits back into the company.

As I so often do, I'll repeat myself: Or, you could buy, you know, a motherfucking Seiko.
