    Freshhhhh Tool Watch

    I really love my Microbrands and by far my favourite has to be E.C.Andersson. I have three already! There just seems to be something about their style that really clicks with me.

    Yesterday, they announced their new release, the Denise Arctic Sport and again I’m hooked! I know the styling may not be to everyone’s liking but you can never say that they play it safe which is quite unique in the micro world which is full of sub wannabes.

    I’m liking that they haven’t gone for the full-on lume dial which I always feel looks cheap as the off-white in natural light just looks odd. This is pure white through and and through which is pretty unheard of. Now time to start saving before the pre-sale discounts disappear.

    Edit: well my mind has now been made up, ECA have just released pictures of the new bracelet and I’m sold, it looks even better on steel imo. Add to that, I will be able to use the bracelet on my previous Denise too which looks equally good on the steel.

    What’s everyone else’s thoughts?

    Unimpressed on the specs, unimpressed on the looks. Hard pass from me.

    If they are supposed to withstand extreme cold they could surely be certified for that, similar to what Sinn has done with their TESTAF testing.

    Not a fan of the case. Or the hands or bezel. What does the "N" at the 30 min mark on the bezel stand for, north? That's an odd choice. Size is nice, except it's way too tall. I like the white dial.

    I personally avoid spending $300+ on a watch with a lowbeat movement, except if it is vintage. For close to $1000, I'd like to see a high-beat movement in there (why not a Miyota 9100, also has PR meter)

    I tried keeping a list of watches, but it changes too fast to keep track. I have issues

    Yikes, those lugs look awful. They make the strap look like a thread of dental floss.

    It marketed as a tool watch so they’ve put the N there for compass usage. I’m going for smaller watches more and more and 40mm seems to be my new sweet spot. They could have played it safe and gone for a black or SS bezel but they’ve obviously taken a chance. Not to everyone’s taste but I really like it.

    it's not my cup of tea either. I don't like the case shape and that diamond on the minute hand would drive me nuts.

    I really like the placement of the power reserve though.
