    New Aquisition

    Really late to the game on this one but they were having a great sale so could not resist. Was trying to wait for the MKII version to be released but that could be a long ways away. Wish it were slightly bigger in diameter maybe 43 instead of 41 because it seems small due to the dial size, plus I have been wearing a 49mm watch for a while so that may have something to do with it too. Came on an iso like strap but a Borealis tropic came at the same time so have it on that now.

    Regards,

    Ren

    Looks good!

    I really enjoyed my Helson Sharkmaster 300 while I had it, so I know they can make a decent watch. Plus, I guess I have a thing for top hat crystals.

    While I haven't looked in a while, I think Helson is the last option still around for this type of homage. Corvus is gone, Precista isn't making them anymore (and Fricker has closed, so the chances of that case being manufactured again is low). MKii is so nebulous I would never hang my hopes on seeing one actually produced.

    Is there any Miyota wobble?

    My one watch with the 9015 has been extremely accurate, but the rotor wobble is definitely noticeable. It isn't a diver though, so maybe a heavier case would diminish the effects of the spinning rotor.

    I have not noticed it, but if i swing it I can feel the rotor, ETA 7750 is about the same so not a problem for me at all.

    It look good but the long, slightly wrapping lugs do not convince me

    It’s the angle of the pic I guess as it comes no where close to overhang over my wrist. I have a large wrist 7.75 so the 52mm lug length is not an issue for me.
