    Re: H2O MARLIN - DEVELOPMENT THREAD

    I can understand the "color problem". I just ordered 2 Kalmar 2 watches and it took a long time and a phone call to Clemens to decide the dial color finally.
    In the end it turned out into dial 18 black / index and the carbon dial ...

    In the Marlin case i think i will be in with two watches, the 44 with black dial, black / orange inlay and orange hand to make a approach to color,
    second will be a blue 40mm version with blue / black inlay for my wife (she does not know it yet ...)

There are close to zero yellow or orange KALMAR 2 shown even though the dials could be chosen by my customer in the visual configurator. Besides my best customer there are just a few out in the wild. Maybe you will like our compromise.
    I really hope the bright colour choice of dials will be still made available for the new S/S KALMAR 1

    This is what I'm doing, she got really interested in designing my Orca (on order) and ch8. She loves clemens watches, feel like this is the perfect way to get her into it. So looking forward to this marlin!!!

    Nice looking watch. In 40mm, I think it will be a winner.

    One thing I would change though is to see the seconds hand lume pip moved towards the center more so that it is inside the hour markers, otherwise it disappears among them in the dark.

    Am I wrong or is the bracelet on upside down? I have mine with the smaller trapezoid tops to the outside not on the skin side

    Same 5-link bracelet for both watches
    Any possibility/talk for an integrated rubber strap for those awesome looking lugs?

    This will be done for the H2O KALMAR 1, which will be sold soon. But why not also on the Marlin.

    Our unique H2O bracelet design was developed with the possibility in mind to be able to use it from both sides. It was launched with the ORCA series which has quite different outer cases and this allows to chose the bracelet side which fits best to the character of the case.

    We will use as standard strap a leather strap with fitting "end link desgn" similar to the HELBERG CH2 strap or with a fitting rubber strap. Also a leather strap with "round"spring bar would be possible to minimize the gap between case and strap.

    Good suggestion. It does make a difference. Seiko is good with this.
