Received a newsletter from Mr. Kemmner that he has just released a new limited edition of the 007 called "Stingray".
I really like it, as I find it has a unique dial look in a 39 mm case, with ETA movement at sub 500 EUR.
Just placed an order, but thought I would share it here as well, in case some of you might be interested.
I previously had the "original" Kemmner 007, but sold it as I found it too much of a "homage" to the Submariner. I feel it is different with this one, but it may simply be due to my lack of ability to identify the watch it is paying homage to.
Copy from his newsletter:
