    The price point will be approximately USD259-269 on Kickstarter for early bird sign ups (where you will received exact time and date of launch).
    The lug to lug is 53mm sorry for the mis communication. :)

    Great marketing photos. I am looking forward to better pics of the watch itself so we all can get a better idea of what the watch looks like.

    - I also agree with the comment above, a dive bezel with number markers would be a good feature.
    - Black dial / stainless steel case would be a good option to offer.
    Will post up more "beauty shots" of the watch next week.

    We did rendering on the watch with number markers but we reckon it made the watch looks a bit "common" and loses the BOLDR's design philosophy of being symmetric and clean.

    Definitely one of the possible option of a black dial and stainless steel case. The color combination is endless! If the response is good, we are also considering a Bronze case if we can meet the MOQ.

    Also an update for the watch, we are planning to upgrade the PVD-IP coating to DLC coating to further improve the durability of the coating. We are also considering getting black date window for the black dial, still in the process of getting feedbacks from our early reviewers.

    Stay tuned guys!

    I would prefer a common lookin watch to one that is less usable as a dive watch, show us the rendering with a full index bezel, you may pick up a few people who dive with their watches.

    Here is the initial rendering we had when we first started designing the watch.

    A properly indexed bezel would be great (though that rarely seems to happen in micro watches). Also, a screw-down case-back is better than a screwed case-back.

    Quite like the dial and hands.

    Hello BOLDR team,

    First congrats it looks great, I like it :) I am having small wrist size, but I like crazy big dive watches, so 45.5mm is excellent to me ;)

    I am doing a lot all kind of diving, and even if I like your minimalist bezel, like many other colleagues mentioned: a more standard usable bezel with 15SEC as example will be welcome (as an option), so you can justify the 120-click unidirectional dive bezel :) LoL

    Please, please, please.... do not go to cheap, meaning low quality... Even if you produce your watch in China like everybody does, and we do not mind, keep in mind that Dive watches are synonymous of quality, reliability, strong tool. Also please replace the cheap and too simple screws you are using for your case back with something better: Hex screws or others ;) Sorry I am a manic details guy LoL...

    All the rest is very good :)

    Cheers,

    Rafy.
