    Re: H2O MARLIN - DEVELOPMENT THREAD

    No problem for me with the end links.

    If there was to be a marlin picture I would rather it be in the case back or rotor than the dial.
    I like the clean dials right now.

    However any marlin picture starts looking like a Casio I think.

    I agree with you and ThaiJohn on the end link. They seems odd on the watch and don't go with it. Also seem to cheapen the look. But that's just my opinion of an early rendering.
    More importantly to me, they seem too substantial... long and tall. They will make the watch appear/wear longer and taller than it is.
    I'd probably not use the bracelet but use straps due to this.

    I would love to see two sets of spring bar grooves, one for bracelet and one higher and closer to the case for straps.

    The new end link will probably look more like a piece of the bracelet, similar to the added pieces included with the Torpedo to change the bracelet to other cases, but more refined to match the look of the lugs on the Marlin, and bracelet side, and hide the space in the lug area. I'm sure knowing Clemens it will be a piece of art itself.

    I think when the case and the endlink are brushed linear it makes a complete different look.
    In addition, when Clemens says the edges are sharper in the endproduct, this will increase the look positive.
    Overall i think it is a good combination of function, stability and design.
    We should always keep the costs in mind. You can surely increase the costs for the endlicks to an outstanding amount but in the end nobody will pay the price.

    Same is the Marlin on the dial. Sure this looks great BUT when you make it in a very good quality, with sun stabil colors and so on it will increase the price of the dial a lot and in the end....same story as above.

    I personally like this clean dials with not every information possible printed.

    A dream could be a rotor with an engraved and enamel coated Marlin which can be seen through the caseback...but i fear the costs of this special thing

    Agreed. Knowing him and his ability to envision a perfectly cohesive final product, it'll look just right ! He also has a good eye for aesthetic

    It not like H2O hasn't put a little something on their divers before - they had Scuba Steve on the OceanicTime 8000m SE...

    OK Maybe not a full color Marlin, but even a chrome outline on the dial (maybe as a n option, instead of the Name or Depth Limit) on one would be nice.

    No thanks, that's just tacky imo to have a marlin logo/picture on the dial

    I dunno about a metal end link and then fitting a straight lug strap to it. I'm just not a fan of that look, even on the tudor or Rolex. Visually it adds bulk to the case IMO.

    I vote 2 spring bar locations which would probably be more cost effective anyways.

    I just got my Orca Torpedo in today and the location of the spring bar is PERFECT. I have my sailcloth strap on it and it fits as tight to the case as you can get with ZERO binding of the strap. There is actually a relief machined into the case to allow the strap to move freely at the lug to prevent binding. And the torpedo comes with the fitted end links for the bracelet.

    I can only assume the Marlin will be the same. Clemens is a genius.
