    Big maybe depending on the price, I had the Sail Fish before and I found the lugs to be a bit too long. and the Logo Font seems too big or doesn't really match on the Dial.

    I love the fact that it's an Blancain Homage....But a few things seem to be a little off. Bezel seems to be a little too bulbous, font seems to be a little too large.

    I'm intrigued though...Especially if it's affordable.

    Much prefer the look of the Sea Storm though maybe a bit too much of a Fifty Fathoms vibe going on.

    I used to love everything lumed, and now I kind of grew out of it and find lumed bezels 'tacky' which is a shame, as it is becoming almost impossible for a microbrand to make a diver watch without the fully lumed bezel!

    But it is just me, and I understand people who find it cool as I, like I said, used to be one :)

It is this authenticity which prevents its exclusion from the class of "real" wristwatches, indeed perhaps being the most real of them all. "

    I'm always hunting a nice fifty fathoms homage, this looks pretty promising but I can't get behind that dial typeface and how it doesn't match that on the bezel.
