    I belive 40mm version will have thinner bracelet, isn't it?
    Correct the 40mm marlin will have a thinner bracelet. Everything will be proportionally reduced to balance perfectly as Clemens said in the other Marlin thread.

    The H2O MARLIN 40mm will have a thinner bracelet which makes it necessary to change the screw heads. The space required for the hex heads is not available or the screw head walls will become too thin and will not hold against the torgue of the screw driver. Therefore we will use slotted screws on the 22mm wide / 3.6mm heigh bracelet.

    My engineer will work on the next weekend on the H2O rubber strap and the end link, which will allow standard straps to be attached without loosing the look of the bracelet end link. In this case not only normal leather straps could be attached but also ISOFRANE for example. We will make a H2O MARLIN rubber strap that will also fit to all our other watches and takes over the two groves from the end link. It will be a 24mm/22mm or 22/22mm design and using a butterfly clasp. Im not sure about the material, because personally I would like to go for the best possible high end rubber material instead of standard EPDM which all my competitors are using. This special rubber material would almost tripple the purchasing costs and would be the same material AP or Hublot are using for their rubber straps. It would withstand sea water or UV rays much better compared to EPDM and last about twice as long. At the end its all a matter of product quality we want to reach and price.

    If you don't want to wait for the preorder, go for the Torpedo

    Looks great, but I can't find it on the website, and why don't the other Torpedos have polished bracelets?

    The H2O ORCA will always be delivered in standard with the fully brushed ORCA bracelet. The bracelet from Ken is special version used only for the DLC coated version of the ORCA and in this case it was a very special arrangement for one of my best customers!

    Please lets move the ORCA discussion into the ORCA thread, please. Lets talk here about the H2O MARLIN.

    Agreed. I want a Marlin with partly polished bracelet like the one for Ken, or fully polished like that Orca Dress watch you made in 2013
