    H2O MARLIN - DEVELOPMENT THREAD

    Has the water resistance been mentioned anywhere yet?
    I for one am satisfied with 200m or 300m from a well made company like this. I trust h2o's engineering. It will suit my active water use just fine. I also prefer a thinner watch than a thicker watch. I don't need 1000m and 15mm thick. I am hoping the 40mm comes in at 13mm or under.
    Not a big factor really just curious about what the resistance and thickness will be.

    Not sure about the integrated rubber strap, this solution was offered with the pelagos and still most owner were wearing their watch on a isofrane or bracelet
    Being the lug curved and quit long a fitted strap (u1 style) imho is the better solution
    Agreed on 1) many prefer rubber to steel and it's also nice to change up, 2) Pelagos owners famously struggle with strap changes as apparently a bit challenging, and 3) I also prefer a fitted strap like shown above, unique and clean, but depending on relative production difficulty/cost using the steel end link is an effective alternative.

    A good rubber strap will keep the watch stationary on your wrist when wet or sweaty. Try that with a metal bracelet.

    Honestly i am not a fan of these case adapted leather straps or rubber.

    Only exception are the rubber straps i know from Sinn, Mühle or Fortis which are combined with a folding clasp and are so long
    that they normally fit wrists up to 24 cm. They have to be shortened to fit your wrist.

    In addition when you like to change the strap sometimes you will normally have to use straps with normal ends due to availability, the offer for curved ends in 24mm and good looking on this kind of watch is very very small.

    I'm not a bracelet guy, so I'm all for keeping the price down by making a strap standard.
    I saw your girl looking at my beard. None of my business, though.

    Im pretty sure the bracelet will be an optional add on like it is for the Orca and Kalmar. So people will have a choice. I do like the idea of a fitted end strap for the marlin whether it be a rubber or leather. A h20 branded deployant clasp with it would be icing on the cake :)

    Overall I think there is so many favorable options that this offering should be a winner. Now let's get the party started and get the pre order going.
