I quite like the look of this one.

But delivery for December would put me off. I’ve hated waiting for my Kickstarter watches, and this has put me off a little of venturing there again.

Just my impatience showing through though.

Interesting proposition at a respectable price. December delivery not an issue, good to look forward to it.

Only snag in my view is the bracelet appears to be straight, not tapered, which for a 22mm bracelet on a 42mm case makes the bracelet too fat (heavy?) and out of proportion.

Good looking watch at a very reasonable price point, and from what I can discern an ETA based mvmt. If a heavy brutish look is what they were going for with that bracelet, mission accomplished! Would rather see the "pepsi" bezel reserved for the GMT tho.

Didn't mean to be harsh, I like the heavy brutish look. The call on the ETA was based on what I found on watchbase.com. very attractive price point, still think the bezel should be left for a GMT. :thumbup:

I like it. Very Tudor GMT in looks but that isn’t a bad thing!
