    Are they really going to make 300? More than half the slots are still available.

    Re: Evolution-resurrection of Slava Amphibian Sadko - another watch.ru limited project

    Is it my imagination or do some of the numbers selected on the spreadsheet seem a little unusual? It seems like typically most want a lower number, but many have chosen much higher numbers for some reason. Personally I don't care what the number is but try to get one relatively low that still sounds good ,like 95 for example. I can understand the interest in some of the higher numbers like 200, 250,275, 299, 300, etc. but some of them I don't get.

    I'm still on the fence with the Sadko for the same reason I am with a 1967, the size. I am tempted by both (also the Compressor) but I don't want a watch only because it's limited. I want to wear it and be comfortable with how it looks on the wrist, etc. My willpower is weak and I may come around still...

    I was sold on the idea after I found out they are making an exact replica of the original instead of something that just looks similar.

    I hope they make the 300 and wish the project is successful. In the beginning, I said to myself "no way", but the Sadko has grown on me, when I saw it alongside the brass 1967 and in a wrist shot...

    Best regards

    I cannot remember when I read “that’s the ugliest watch I’ve ever seen ...”


    That’s why we must have one, amazing stance!

    And in my opinion this is great. It is not meant to understand everything... and isn't it amazing that so many totally different people with many different motives can support this one single project. I just love it.

    They aren't really making an exact replica if they aren't using an acrylic crystal. I wonder what's stopping them. I would like to use an acrylic crystal, but if not I would want sapphire.

    Well that's true, I was specifically referring to the case dimensions and dial, but I hope they go with acrylic if that's the original lens material. I wonder how hard it would be to get it replaced with acrylic if they do go with something else.

    I have a bit of OCD involving over analyzing things that usually have no significance.
