    I think Brice has summed it up nicely. The "development" has been discussed. Clemens knows what sells and will build accordingly taking into account some excerpts from the discussion.

    Enough flogging. Show us the choices & let's get on with it.

    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.
    I vote for this too. Not a fan of fastening straps to an end link. 2 sets of spring bar holes if necessary. Worked great on the Victorinox DiveMaster, and LumTec has utilized this now.

    Now on with the show..

    Re: H2O MARLIN - DEVELOPMENT THREAD

    I'm glad you guys agree. Two sets of spring bar holes makes a lot of sense and I don't know why more watch brands don't do it

    +2, not a fan of the end link/strap connection like on the Pelagos. Like the two spring bar hole better.

    I'm confident the end link for the strap will look great Clemens has great ideas it will be no exception.

    I'm getting the idea Clemens already has everything set and will do as he see's fit. We've seen this from the last thread Danny T put up. So as I said, our opinions are noted, and probably EOD. Build it!

    This end link business must be the new thing, and not sure how Clemens can do it much differently. The product is the product, and the H20 / Helberg reputation precedes itself. It's all good.

    Re: H2O MARLIN - DEVELOPMENT THREAD

    We might be all bond together at our heads: Two spring bar positions are already included into the design! This allows the use of different straps, different thickness of straps or even the end shape of the leather strap could be round to fit perfectly to the case. It all depends on your ideas.

    Not sure about the Marlin on the dial, because it might be difficult to print perfectly. On Photoshop everything is possible.

    Well, that's me sorted. Any lingering doubts (because I'm not a bracelet guy) are gone with the two spring bar positions. Let's get this pre-order going!

    Re: H2O MARLIN - DEVELOPMENT THREAD

    Two spring bar positions sounds very good to me as i like to use different straps!

    The Marlin on dial problem - everything is possible i think, only a matter of the costs...as always.
    In addition i personally think that the "line" Clemens put up with the name on the dial (Kalmar, Orca) should be continued.

    Looks great. Please don't put any pictures of fish/marlin on the dial please. So tacky.


    Very interested in the rubber strap you mentioned, what is the superior rubber material that AP and Hublot use that you are also planning to?

    You also mentioned the rubber strap will accommodate 23cm wrists, will this be shortened for the 40mm model? Us small waisted people will be wrapping that thing around our arms twice to fit it!
