I have been in touch with Helson and would like to evaluate the interest for a Shark Diver 38mm in steel, with a steel bracelet, applied markers, and glossy ceramic bezel with BGW9 lume*. Some watch enthusiast friends of mine have shown interest in the model but we need to reach a minimum order quantity of 25 to make a small batch happen, which I why I am reaching out to people here.
The cost would be approximately the same cost as the regular Shark Diver 38mm in blasted titanium.
I created some preview images. Custom hands, custom casebook engraving as well as a custom dial are possible for the same cost. So feel free to imagine your own watch, share your designs and/or ideas here and see if we can all agree on a specific model that we can submit to Helson for a quote.
Please vote in the poll to express either your overall interest (or lack thereof!), or your firm intention to actually purchase this model in the future (you would fall in this category if you thought "take my money!"). The poll is just for statistics, to see how easily we would be able to reach the minimum order quantity of 25.
I hope you'll have fun looking at the pictures. Personally, I think this would be a perfect Shark Diver for me, but feel free to suggest anything you would like!
*One main advantage of Superluminova BGW9 is that it looks white during daytime contrary to the C3 while being 95% as bright. It is an advantage on this watch, given the large lumed surface on Shark Divers. It always bothered me that they looked yellow during the day. With BGW9 you get a clean white daylight look and a more modern-looking blue glow at night.
