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.

    While I don't care much for the white dial version, your sunburst grey is stunning. Really like that setup.

    Was really looking forward to this white dial NS, but am very disappointed that the lug placement still causes a gap. Looks like a nato is still the only option for my taste.

    Thanks for the pics and review, Dave. Any word from Todd on the status of the Treudd?

    No, I haven't heard anything on the Treudd. That one does look good though.

    Thanks Demo's excellent photos and review I am also on board. So much for my budget.

    Re: New Karlskrona Nordic Shield Preview

    Wondering if anyone has any info. on when delivery will start? Or does someone know whether there is something (manufacturing, last minute tweaks in design, etc...) that might impede on its supposed May delivery proposal? There's nothing on Karlskona site that would indicate otherwise, but as is the case with most micro's getting info. on actual shipping dates on new models is sometimes a little slow at best. Can't wait to see this in real world time !

    Last I heard he was expecting delivery of watches from manufacturer last week if everything stayed on schedule. .....But we all know how schedules work in the watch world.

    I haven't heard any updates since then.

    Thanks Demo! It appears that based on e-mail received earlier today from Todd & KWC we are really close. This is e-mail received:

    Hello Team Shield...
    The watches have arrived and I am burning the midnight oil performing the final finishing and QC checks.
    I want to thank each and every one of you for your tremendous support and patience with both of these projects!


    Once I have your watch ready to ship I will confirm to you. Please keep an eye out for an email from me.


    Best regards,
    Todd @ KWC
