    Re: H2O MARLIN - DEVELOPMENT THREAD

    It's not that I don't like the Miyota, I have 3 watches already with that and I want something different. They are very reliable.
    But, my opinion only, a display back deserves something a bit more special or less common, if you know what I mean.
    Just like the 2824, yes good and reliable, I want something different.
    I don't have anything with the 2892 in it.
    I have one with a Soprod A10, very reliable. How does that movement compare, cost wise?

    There is nothing bad to say about this movement. I will not use the Seiko, because I would like to have the second hand moving as smooth as possible and a high beat mvmt will surely have its advantages here. I have some a good and stable channel for ETA movement supply and with the ETA 2892 you could get one of the rare opportunities to get this movement from a small micro brand. In future the sourcing of this movement will become more and more difficult. But of course the purchasing costs for the ETA 2892 are much higher compared to the 9015, which will result in higher sales price.

    The dimensions will be made public at a later stage. There should be something new we could talk about when the pre-order starts.

    Some time ago I made renderings with the 6 inlays and different dials I´m planning. This SECTION is not including the dial 18 design from the KALMAR 2 and maybe other dial designs I will come up with and is just a part of the possibilities. To reduce my workload in future free combinations out of the visual configurator might be only offered during the pre-order and later on only pre-configured models might be available.

    Offering both movements would double the dial order, which is already huge, due to different dial feet position.
    Lot's of big manufacturers have shifted towards Sellita/Soprod as well so I am sure it's still pretty reliable. As far as originality goes..well...that's preference, and in this case you make the call :).

    In practice the Soprod and Selitta mvmt are definately not as reliable as the ETA. My watchmaker are assembling also for one of the biggest watch manufacturer in Germany, who are selling more than 140.000 watches per year, and from their experience the ETA mvmt are unreached in performance and more important reliability. When you have a 10% failure rate for some movements you will think twice which mvmt you want to trust. So for me ETA mvmt are the first choice.

    Yes, Clemens! I just hope the white dial to be not full lumed. I would have preferred all white sapphire bezel, but that may do, lol.

    I think Eta in H2O Watches is a very good choice and combination - no experiments in the movement reliability.

    The look of the Marlin is great and the sapphire inlay with orange color till 20 Minutes is my favorit - colorchange at the 4:00 crown position is a great solution - I like it very much!

    Here are three wristshots of the H2O MARLIN in 44mm on my 6.7"/17cm wrist! Takes up very nicely the shape/curve of my wrist and is super comfortable.

    That looks exceedingly good on your slender wrist.

    The 44m Marlin looks very nice! I have a flat 7" wrist and can see that 40mm will be great for me. I assume the case width will exceed 40mm when one includes the integrated part of the case which is crown guard. Does the 44mm have a 24mm lug width? For me personally the 44mm would wear too big. No worries. That's why there's a 40mm.

    44mm = 24mm lugs
    40mm = 22mm lugs

    Same 5-link bracelet for both watches

    What would the price difference be between the ETA and the Miyota? If it's around a hundred bucks, then I'd prefer the ETA. I'm so in on this one, it's making my head spin.
