I like the colors and the size on this, great summer watch. I know it’s not going to win any awards, but it is something different and if you look at the old Bakelite bezel watches, they are expensive. This one has a little vintage look and since it is new it doesn’t have to be babied. I can use it and not feel bad if I tear it up, ding it or get water in it.
You can have brains or you can have beauty, but you can’t have all three.

The orange dial isn't too bad.

I think I would prefer the watch below in that color........

The No. 2 version, I like. Fair price if the quality is good.

One of these days I am going to get a KS watch. The Hamtun Nanok, stupid as hell name, was nice and I backed out of the Dificiano. Waiting for eBay and WatchRecon deals.

I think there are gems to be found in the KickStarter quicksand. I also liked the Hamtun and Pancor had an 02 model that I kinda liked but it was sold out. I like a couple of these Sea Venture inspired divers at $259. If my son-in-law remembers to offer me a drink when I come over, he just may get one.

It's funny how so many starterkicker projects sell out but don't keep producing watch models. Did the money just get hoovered up their noses? Why not keep going? Did AliExpress raise their prices?
