Belhamel CONTRA A40 Kickstarter launch

Post by TimepieceTitan » May 2nd 2023, 11:54am

Hello, fellow watch lovers,

I don't usually post on these forums, but I recently came across the CONTRA A40 by Belhamel which will be launching on Kickstarter shortly, and I must say, it caught my eye.

The specs seem quite impressive for the price, especially the Miyota Cal. 9039 automatic movement with 28,800 BPH, and the 30 ATM. Seems like a good bang for the buck to me!

However, I'm not entirely sure about the crown size, as I generally prefer them a bit bulkier. Also, I'm more of a rubber strap guy, but I suppose that's something I can change myself. Here's their website for more info: https://bеlhamеl.com/

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the Belhamel CONTRA A40, and if anyone else here is considering backing the project. Let me know what you think!

Cheers!

I don't usually post on these forums, but I recently came across the CONTRA A40 by Belhamel... [TLDR]
Ironically, I recently came across your mum's face.

Checking out Mr. Titan's website, I was immediately struck by some deathless prose found there:

A refined contemporary dive watch inspired by the past and built to last – at 25-45% discount for ealy birds!

As the old saying goes, the ealy bird gets the werm.

And:

Inspired by the counterculture of the ’60s, the Contra A40 celebrates a detailed fusion of timeless design principles adapted to today’s zeitgeist.

A bit of a stretch here; it looks like a Sub clone, which probably wasn't on the mind of your typical hippie--he'd be more interested in burning his draft card, smoking a prodigious amount of dope, or dancing around in the mud at Woodstock with his cock and balls hanging out. However, bonus points for working in the word zeitgeist, which is like a word version of premium sea salt--it improves everything.

We’ll launch the Contra A40 on Kickstarter in May 2023. Make sure you join the waitlist below for exclusive updates and offers. And if you’re one of a select number of first-comers, you’ll have the opportunity to lock-in a super early-bird discount of up to 45% OFF! Prices will be revealed by email.

O-kay. So, you come to my forum, and try to hawk a watch that you haven't even gotten off your ass and post on Kickstarter?? And then, once you skeezed me for my email, that's when you'll tell me the fucking price, and then, maybe, I'll be one of the ealy birds that get's 45 percent off the inflated retail??

Ah shucks, I ain’t much for Big City wartches but I reckon you’re probably honest enough.

It shore are nice of y’all to share this great opportunity, ‘cause for just a wee moment I coulda sweared you were some shuckster selling your wares.

But, you’re just ‘one of us’ simple watch folk.

Atsa real nice.
