    Iconic Timepieces

    Has anyone seen the new micro brand on Kickstarter caller Iconic Timepieces? They look pretty cool and seem to be priced pretty well. Was wondering other people’s thoughts.

    Don't like the name at all.I see nothing Iconic about this watch in any way & once again a 4:00 date ruins the entire dial.

    Lose the date window, make the bezel uniform (no minute marks from 1 to 20), thicken the hands.

    So many weird things going on with this piece. This goes so much against that "form follows function" thing a purpose built dive watch should have. I mean look at those lugs.

    Well, after these comments, I just had to click through. I found the design to be uninteresting overall. The lugs, however, are reminiscent of those on the Raketa Polar. Just not as well integrated. The Iconic looks like a fashion watch (not that there's anything wrong with that ;)) trying to pass as a diver.
    BTW, the Polar is clearly not a diver and the overall package works really well with those lugs and dial design. I would definitely put one of these on my wrist.

    I agree the lugs look better on the Raketa. On this Iconic thing though it looks out of place in my opinon.

    Too pretty for me. Makes me think of tea and tennis in May. (That's a northern hemisphere May) And daisies and doilies and little cakes and extended pinkies.

    Shill at your own risk. An honest approach would be better received.
