WUS Editor-In-Chief here! Wanted to start a dialogue to see what all of you think about the prospect of a new limited edition diver for the forum? I wanted to kick things off by getting some feedback of what brands you all think would be interesting to work with, what sort of specs, and what price range would be most interesting for everyone? If there's a good amount of interest in one particular direction or another, then we'll get the ball rolling and see which brands would be interested in building our new F74 diver. With "brand collab" editions being so much more common than they used to be, brands are more and more receptive to this, so there are no wrong answers. OK, Obviously Rolex is a wrong answer, but you know what I mean
Another thing we've been considering in this same vein, as we start talking design direction, is to open things up to submissions for design. Got half decent rendering/photoshop skills? If we venture down this path, and your design is selected, one of the pieces from the production run will be yours.
Anyway, let's not get ahead of ourselves... For the time being, here's what I'd like to see:
- Brand: Open to many — Germans, Micros, etc.
- Case: Either Ti or Bronze, and fairly compact. 39 — 41mm
- Price Range: Max $2,000 USD depending on brand/build
- Other Details: Compressor case, both crowns screw-down, clicking internal bezel, no-date (or MAYBE color-matched date disk @ 6 o'clock), 200m resistance, loads of lume, colorful/non-standard dial colors, solid engraved caseback.
Let's hear your thoughts on the matter! What's missing in your collection? What's your dream diver?
