    Upcoming 500M Dive Watch from Manchester Watch Works a.k.a. project Beluga!

    This watch will be the debut of MWW's Swiss Made Professional line called the Beluga (named after Vermont's state fossil - a beluga whale skeleton). The first model is the Beluga Ascent.

    Now onto some specs of the Beluga Ascent:
    - 41mm case with a 43mm bezel (for real world grip) rated to 500m with helium escape valve
    - just 12.5mm thick
    - every high grade material a WIS could wish for (fully lumed ceramic bezel insert, sapphire crystal with inner AR, 316L steel, etc.)
    - fitted solid MACHINED steel strap endlinks (not stamped or molded endlinks)
    - ETA 2824-2 Elabore automatic movements with choice of date or no date [Date window @ 3]
    - direct immediate sales when the model debuts (no pre-orders!)
    - pricing will be extremely competitive with other Swiss Made watches ie., Chris Ward and Steinhart
    - 20mm Lugs
    - Lug to lug 49.5mm
    - tentative delivery date of July 2017.

    Being a fan of the brand I'll anxiously wait to see what Doug has in store! I'm still licking my wounds from when the (M.W.W.) Armada did not meet it's funding on K.S. awhile back! Is this model going the K.S. route or is Doug now in the position of funding it independently?

    Sounds very interesting. Size? Colors that will be available? With date? Can we at least get a finger painting render of this thing?
