    Here's a few pics of the watch head when I had it off the strap. Finishing is quite nice all around.

    As usual Demo's pict. are as enticing a sales tool as a company could dream to get a hold of. And this photo-shoot is no exception, the Nordic Shield is a fantastic foil for Demo's exceptional talents. And since I'm a happy owner of the Baltic Shield I can attest to the quality/price value that KWC delivered with their first foray into producing a timepiece. And judging by some of the improvements that have been eluded to in this thread it leaves an easy decision for this WIS, I'm in! Big fan of their choice of a white dial this time and it should go well along side the sunburst gray that I permanently intend to keep in my collection! I will anxiously wait to see whether the Nordic blast that Karskrona delivers will live up to its Baltic brethren




    As to the lume, I can attest to how well it was applied on the Baltic version and I would expect nothing less from its Nordic brother.

    +1, The pinkish text would be a no go for me.

    My prototype Baltic Shield 001/300 that was slightly modded looks forward to its newly released brother:

    The text is a true red color.

    I agree, I would have liked to have seen less of a gap. But Todd at Karlskrona said he wanted to insure enough room for thick leather straps.

    I'm withholding final judgement until I see pictures with the ISO rubber, which is about the thickest rubber strap you can get as I understand. The main reason I sold my BS was the only strap that looked right (to me), and hid the gap was a Nato. I also like to have a rubber option with dive watches. Not a fan leather straps anyway, and it's not very useful on a diver imo.
