    Arcturus Lion City

    https://arcturuswatches.com/

    I'm literally blown away.

    It is being launched on Kickstarter in one hour. Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with them whatsoever. Just amazed by the design and execution.

    I attached some gorgeous eye candy below but there are also some honest reviews if you feel like reading words:

    Advertising your own kickstarter by pretending to be not related. So lame.

    What a cynical and disrespectful accusation. You obviously don't know me so why jump into conclusions? I wish this watch was my design.

    I thought this forum was for talking about watches, so talk about the watch. If you don't care about it, there 100,000s of other topics to join.

    I have nothing to do with the Kickstarter and I think it is great too. Obviously the owner didn’t need to promote it much because it was funded within an hour. I very much doubt this post an hour before launch made much of a difference.

    Mind to elaborate ?

    The moon/sun disc is..... well......prominent.......and.....gimmicky. Somehow overegging the pudding. The 24hrs sub counter is the better option, imho.

    I was asking myself that too...but before making an accusation, how about seeing whether it's justified, to the degree you can? Here...I don't see it.


    On these pieces...not for me. First, they're too large for my wrist, at 42mm. The dial's trying to do too many things. I'll give credit: the complications are integrated very nicely. The simplest black and white comes pretty close to working; when you throw in, say, the MOP center...that's too much. Same with the sun/moon. And I see this:




    That's pretty darn chunky. I have enough of a spare tire at my waist, I'm not fond of one on my wrist.

    Will also give props for a better movement than one might expect. 9000-series Miyota. At the price points, that's just fine.

    I'd say best of luck but given how fast it got funded......well, ok. Good luck managing the success. :) Looks like this one's gonna go ballistic, with all the hassles of being *much* bigger than you could've expected, all at once.

    Literally blown away? Please convey my condolences to your friends and loved ones.

    As to the watches, I like the blue moonphase, but not enough to spring for it.

    Way too thick for me but they're interesting designs. Not a fan of the MOP tho.
    Well, I was standing on a corner in Winslow, AZ and Clara Oswald slowed down to take a look at me and my GS Tiffany SnowflakeTM...

    I , too , am "blown away"by the watch.
    But for a completely different reason.

    No thank you very much.
