Issue with Borealis is that it is a Pre-Order so Quality is what ever you get at once you receive it. If you need spare parts you are out of luck, just like the hands of my Batial, or Faded bezel of the Estoril which needs a brand new case. If you need new screws for your Scorpionfish or Hex bars for your Batial there is none. And I've started to go into Bigger Swiss Brands and I find quality is better, packaging, bezel feel, hand alignment etc. and honestly good Swiss watches can be had for $200-500 on sale. Bulova Accutron, Edox Hydro Sub, Deep Blue with ETA movements.
That must be why after you were banned from buying from Borealis, you couldn't wait to get an Estoril and Seafarer. Because of the horrible quality and awful experiences. Right...
Borealis provides spare parts, so that statement is also false. Are they free ? No, why would they pay for our neglect and abuse?
The hands of my Oris have lots of wear versus your little .5mm line on a hand of your Batial (which you got 100pct refund back and told to keep the watchl
The hands on the Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Diver I sold, also aren't perfect
Even some Rolex's have flaws on hands
You will not find a Deep Blue of the same quality of the Batial, Seafarer or Bullshark. I know cus I've owned all top "Swiss" Deep Blues, sadly. Even have a 7754 Deep Blue coming and I can guarantee you the finish will not match Borealis, even the Sea Dragon finish is better than any Deep Blue, let alone the Seafarer's or Estorils and upcoming Bullsharks.
How long are you gonna keep trolling Borealis threads with your negativity ?
I mean, what do you get from this ? Let us enjoy our horrible quality Borealis Watches and you do your thing with Deep Blue and Bulova or whatever you want.
A few of my terrible Borealis
Nobody provides the specs that Borealis provides for the price.
We get it. You are banned for life from
Borealis and is obvious they did a great decision. How long til you stop trolling the Borealis threads ?
I don't like certain brands, you don't see me trashing them every time I can, or ever. I keep it moving. You should try that.

This is a good looking watch. I think I may have to put it on my radar.
Owned: NTH Nacken Modern, CW C60 300, Armida A2, Armida A9, W3 Pro Diver, Marathon Medium TSAR, Scurfa Stainless, Maratac Mid Pilot, SR-1, Seiko SARG009, SARB033
So apparently I'm trolling for voicing my opinions on watches I own. Simple question how do they stack up to other brands? and here's my owners perspective. Apparently anything negative = bashing a brand, making up stores, Borealis is king of watches and they exceed the quality of Rolexes. And why did I buy them if they are so bad and I got banned? I can't predict the future, as I placed the order for all 3 watches, Batial, Seafarer 2, and Extoril two years ago as a pre order. And my Estoril + Seafarer 2 got canceled after I had issues with the hands of my Batial, but I decided to give them another chance since I've had numerous Borealis/ Prometheous watches before. However those ordered got canceled again. And I'm not the type to play games, if I want something I get it, who is anyone to say what I can and can't do with my hard earned money, I can order 100 of the next Borealis watch if I wanted to.
Think what you want but here's the alignment of my Latest Borealis watches. Sure you can say it is a few mm but if it was only a few mm people won't be making such a big fuss over Seiko QC and alignment considering they are half the price of Borealis so they must be inferior. Or I could have opened all my brand new watches and purposely unaligned the hands. Or I just have bad luck with every Borealis that I get.
Trying to get this thread back on track again .....
Here are some quick and dirty factory photos of the Cascais prototypes, borrowed from the Borealis forum.
Brown and Blue, with BGW9, and the Black and White, with X1 C3 lume ......
Also showing both Cathedral and the Pencil hands.
Won't be too much longer before they are fully assembled and received for evaluation .....
