    Some microbrands could do a lot better a little less homage in them

    I am not keen on the hands too. And the dial seems quite similar to the last model, Bull Shark, both starting render of "big eyes" (maxi dots).

    If they change to MilSub hands and slightly smaller dot indices, it might be better.

    Is that the same case as the bull shark?

    You know what? I like it. Even the hands. One good thing about them is there's no way you can confuse them at a quick glance. And they aren't actually Mercedes hands (which I've come to hate on anything but an Explorer-style dial). There is also a no-date option which is very appealing to me. And a white dial option. C'mon, how many white dialed divers are there these days? And I really don't mind the Seiko movment. Yes, 28,000 bph would be nicer, but not a deal breaker for me and certainly not on a watch that's going to be worn while fishing, swimming snorkeling etc... Half the time I won't have my glasses on, and heck if I could even tell I had a hi-beat movement without them. Frankly, most of the time, I can't tell even with them on...

    This looks to me far less homage-y than the Bull Shark or Estoril. Not knocking the homages, I really like the Estoril as I love the older Seamaster 300, and there's no way I could afford one, at least not to wear and do what I'd like to do with it, so to the extent that this hearkens to the older Bremonts or other divers with the lollipop or whatever you call the hands, it doesn't bug me in the least. The blue or white dial, no-date works for me. Looking forward to seeing the pricing on these.

    Latest update on the proposed Cascais dive watch ....

    Originally slated to come with the SII NH35, after obtaining some samples, and in-put and feedback from members in the Forum, the Cascais will now come with a Swiss made STP1-11 !

    This movement can now be found in the Zodiac Heritage Sea Wolf and Super Sea Wolf, among a few others.

    Also, there will be a second choice of Pencil hands, as well as the originally proposed Cathederal hands.





    The Cascais will be offered with the X1 Grade lume, which is the highest grade of Super Luminova, in C3 X1 and C1 X1 for the various models.

    I'll be jumping in on this one. I like the bremont style hands over the pencil. Blue version for me. Interested in this new movement.

    Is this the movement made in house by Fossil in Switzerland?
