Thought hard on the Cascais but ordered the Bull Shark instead, though I may still pick one up. I have a Seafarer II in the black/orange combo. Super quality, great legibility but I've come to the conclusion it's almost too big for me. I have 7.5" wrist but the 44mm....I don't know.
The Cascais is a great looker to be sure. I don't have any experience with other microbrands. I can't imagine any of them beating Borealis level of quality, especially at that price point.
