I really like the design of this watch, but the dials and hands never really stood out for me.
This new design with all DLC, looks incredible. They did a fantastic job on it.
Just wondering why they have to limit the best looking watches? It was a similar thing with
the Oceanic Benarus Meg watch, the best looking and extremely limited.
And unfortunately being offered when I'm dry on funds. Don't put a limit on us WUS fans!
Omega, Boschett, Artego, Crepas, H2O
The first Prometheus I really like...
Doxa | Tudor | Fortis | UTS | Sinn | Benarus
I just reserved one of these today and picked my number off of a spreadsheet. There were about sixteen open spots left on the sheet, price was right around $1000 if you live outside of Europe (no VAT), 50% deposit for reserve.
I like the look but the price is high imo especially when a Ti watch comes on a SS bracelet... shame
The funny thing for me is that:
-I'm not crazy for black watches
-I NEED to have minute marks on my dial. Not a single watch in my collection is without.
-Don't like bezel without marking
And yet, I just reserved #25. It's a total non sense, but I simply love the minimalism of the whole watch. I always found that case and bezel to be a fantastic design and the simplicity of the dial with black hands is a winner for me. In other words, it's unique and I have nothing like that in my collection. Deep inside though, I think i'm buying it just because of the lumed Oceanitime logo : )
I'm a bit surprised to see that this thread is not more popular. The Manta Ray does have many lovers on WUS.
Anyway, I'm happy to be able to grab one of these very limited pieces.

One thing to consider for those not liking the plain unmarked bezel, other manta ray bezels will be interchangeable with this one. Would love to see a lumed white sapphire bezel on this watch, in the future. Another thing to consider is the weight of the Ti manta on mesh should be much lighter than a SS manta on bracelet than weighs in at .6 lb.
Looked at the spreadsheet and about twelve left to reserve, over the halfway point.
