    Helson watches

    Please excuse me if this has been covered or answered prior, used the search function but couldn't confirm an answer either way; do ALL Helson watches ship from Hong Kong or do they have a Cont US distributor in FLA ? Anyone know who that might be ?
    I'm interested in ordering a Blackbeard, sent them a note inquiring but so far no reply.
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Helson watches ship from.. ?

    Bought two. Both came from HK. Maybe there's an alternate depot somewhere, but not for the ones I bought. They ship quickly, though.

    By the way and on a side note, can anyone ID this watch band, or even how you'd describe it for search purposes ?

    I'd call it distressed canvas. You can sense the tension.

    HK only as far as I know. It’s failsafe as far as I know. I’ve ordered a few and had no issues. Distressed canvas. Looks like either a Drew Canvas strap or possibly a Diaboliqe.

    I have purchased two Helson's this year and they have both come from Hong Kong, so that is my experience. I have found them responsive to emails tho, so give them another shot. Have a 42 Shark Diver Brass and a Tortuga, New Old Stock - love them !

    I love the Toruga, especially the yellow face- why do you suppose they discontinue models ? The pre-owned market proves that the Tortuga still has market interest as they're snapped up every time one surfaces.

    I had it. Wasn’t too crazy about it. For s couple bucks more I get them custom made from Jose Maria Aguilar on FB and IG. Much Better stitching too.
