I know for example Borealis is just a small brand looking to make affordable watches, Squale, their marketing irks me, rubs me the wrong way, feels like fake heritage, like it is an Invicta or Fossil but trying to hide it. And using standard Sellita/ETA movements doesn't help at all, seems if you got history, part of that should be in-house movement, which is very sad about Oris... Watch history should be about the movement and contributing to that history, not damn cases.

    Also when are they going to update that press fit clasp?
    You do realize a lot of bigger, more expensive and considered higher end brands with a larger "history" do not make their own movements or just started to right?

    I got this thing a couple of days ago. Really happy with it so far. Very well built and comfortable to wear. I'm definitely keeping it.

    I haven't checked the entire thread but wanted to ask if there was any feel or thoughts about it fitting a 6.5 inch wrist? I am intrigued by this one but if it's too big or top heavy then it's a no go. Also interested in suggestions for straps since this is a non standard lug size and I'm not a bracelet guy.

    Definitely a bit better quality than my Steinhart GMT with the exception of the clasp. Steinhart wins on clasp hands down

    I use 22 mm straps (NATO's etc) on mine will the time my wrist is a touch under 7" and it fits well, can't really comment on the 6.5" fit.

    Mine says hello. Just arrived two days ago, and I am very impressed. Fit and finish is fantastic. Alignment is spot on. I love the ceramic bezel insert. Certainly feels like a keeper to me!

    Thanks to a friend, I was able to try this on today:



    Not my picture:



    The sizing is pretty good, it looks like a 40mm diver on steroids, since the dial is small and the bezel is quite large. I felt that the watch overall was great for the money and very unique in person, but it's extremely difficult to get an accurate picture to show the color of the fake patina on the dial, or the ceramic bezel. Regarding my complaints, the crown is a bit too large for the crown guards, the bezel teeth aren't deep enough and the clasp is rather cheap, but if you like the way the watch looks, buy it! It's quite a stunner in person.
