I was on one of the Facebook Groups when I first saw the black version of these and I immediately had to see if theyíd let me try one of the prototypes, so here we are.
I am not getting paid for this, no free watch will come my way and I donít receive a discount for this. They will pay for the cost of shipping it back but thatís it.
Iím not a reviewer. Iím just here showing off the eye candy that I love about this watch and Iím happy to answer any questions.
I will say that it looks and feels like itís done by one of the 2-3 most popular factories that we are seeing used by Helm, Borealis, Halios, NTH, etc. I have no idea which one and I felt it would be rude for me to ask. The construction is really solid and I love the brushed finished. For all these specs and cheaper than Helm prices, I think itís a no brainer.
Please keep in mind that this one has been used by whoever before me plus for demo pictures so there are signs of wear.
I didnít get to choose which prototype Iíd receive but I definitely wanted this one or the blue one with black bezel.
The owner did mention that the production will be of even higher quality, higher tolerances and the end links will fit the case more ďperfectlyĒ
The owner mentioned that the ratchet clasp will either say Marlin or have a Marlin on it.
Killer lume !
