    Will not disclose the material as there are too many copy cats out there. The rubber strap could be easily shortened and therefore could be used on the 40mm watch as well. The strap will be a 24/22mm and 22/22mm design using the same 22mm clasp.

    Im also more for the clear dial and as the same dial could be used in the KALMAR 1 / KALMAR 2 / MARLIN / ... I will not put the model name on the dial.

    I like the idea of the clean dial.

    Could the lumed caseback be a Marlin instead of the H2O logo? That would work. I think it would be cool to incorporate the model's info somewhere

    ??? Just wondering - the dial feets should be different due to the crown position (3 versus 4) ??? Or are there perhaps plans to change the crown position on the Kalmar 2 - dont hope so...

    100% - the more decidable parts, the more the problems to decide

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

    Yes, the dial feet are different, but the design will be produced also for crown at 03:00.

    The Marlin could not be printed with Sl on the display case back crystal, because its not possible to print that fine with SL.

    Ahhh - good to know - this opens a lot of new options for the Kalmar/Kalmar 2 watches...
    Clemens, it gets more difficult by every new statement from you to decide.....

    Borealis has just launched their in house 22 mm rubber strap which took 1 year to formulate, according to Maria. I have bought 1 piece to try and I must say I am quite satisfied with it, having paid only $15 plus $10 for shipping. It is not as thick as the original Isofrane but quite soft and bendable - more testing needed as I just received it. It will be a great boost for us to get a high standard of material vs the pricey brands for the Marlins strap. I really appreciate the developmental work that is done from the micro brands at affordable price points.
