This all sounds good. In terms of rubber type/quality i like what benetto cinturini does. Something in that calibre for quality and cost would be great. That said maybe there is better out there that i haven't experienced...

    Bottom line is there is a lot of good stuff going on in this design...please oh please be affordable (i know we all have definitions of affordable..). The 40mm sizes and possible 9015 movement could really make this a break through watch for h2o.
    Agree 100% and if this to be marketed to ladies and those of us with smaller wrists than a shorter length strap is a necessity. 120/80 or less is what I ask custom strap makers to go with but depends on the L2L of course.
    Having the 9015 should open a whole new segment of the market for you as well. Solid movement that should put this H20 in a lot more hands especially with the current currency craziness in the world.

    Sounds like a vote for bushed bracelet. As the bracelet is optional I may offer a certain qty in mixed configuration.

    BTW, there is one special feature that might be exclusive for the 44mm version of the H2O Marlin:

    The bezel could be interchanged between the H2O KALMAR 2 and the H2O MARLIN 44mm.


    So if you own the KALMAR 2 there is a good chance the bezel could be used on both models and vice-versa.
    Please not: This feature must be checked with final product and is NOT guaranteed to work.

    I also prefer the brushed version.

    Back to the rubber strap.
    Perhaps it is possible beside the case integration to give the strap a little bit of structure (like the Oris rubber straps) and secondary
    it is perhaps possible to integrate the h2o logo (the circle) in the strap in form of an engraving into the rubber.

    Sounds very good to me, when it is not fully polished - only line 2 and 4 of the 5 line bracelet it takes up the polished line of the watchcase (phase) on both sides - should look awesome.

    When it is "optional" then when you buy 2 watches you can choose and get the best of 2 worlds (a fully brushed and a mixed configuration bracelet) ...i see my money disappearing in Marlin watches

    It does:
    I think the reverse would be even better, line 1 and 3 and 5 being polished, and 2 and 4 brushed.

    But if I have to choose brushed vs. polished, then I agree with Clemens; polished is my favorite as I also like that shiny surface.

    Rubber strap: never tried AP's but am happy with anything on par with Isofrane.

    Clemens, you said your engineer will work next weekend? Poor guy
