    I like the touch of blue on the dial and the no date option. Very cool.https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-se/...se-710b32.html

    Glad to hear!

    FYI: Found the article I read that inspired me to get one: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f54/vo...gy-491757.html

    Its a long read and explains in detail why they went for the acrylic, 2 piece caseback and the "wobbly" crown.

    Also, a great conversation starter for people that are into engineering and not necessarily watches. I already spammed some friends with my watch design talk :D

    The dial has a very fine sandpaper texture on it. Like on the NTH Vintage Näcken Subs just much finer. (FYI on a 6,5inch-ish wrist)

    Very good looking, especially the black bezel!

    Works better than a silver one combined with a black insert.

    How is the strap? Is it flexible compared to other rubber straps?

    Tracked the time for fun and I am amazed. Was expecting around +25/-15 to be acceptable. That Amphibia averages on +0.2! Will be more than happy if it stays around +10 :)

    FYI Regarding the strap: Meranom uses some fat Vostok spring bars inside the rubber strap. After I replaced those with generic ones the rubber strap regained its 22mm width and the gap disappeared.
