    Certainly looks good for those that got in at the lower prices. Might need to have a proper look around Kickstarter after some recent posts here.

    I agree this looks interesting and I too need to have a good look. I have just remembered a post about one called Vapaus that looked great on there.

    Had a look at this but missed out on the cheaper option. Very pelagos inspired to me, just missing a snow flake hand set. I could have been tempted but for me the dial just seems to flat and plain.
    Backed this one this morning,

    And I like this one also, but maybe a little pricey

    I backed the Hamtun watch when it launched on Kickstarter. It arrived last week:



    Here's a little album of more pics: http://imgur.com/a/Aqodf

    Considering I got in there early when it was $150 (they're now at normal price of $199) it's an incredibly impressive piece of kit for the price. Ceramic bezel, domed sapphire crystal, titanium case and bracelet, Seiko NH35 movement, drilled lugs... If they can keep these at that price then it's one of the better value new startup brands out there. I guess it probably competes with Deep Blue in this segment? (I've not owned a Deep Blue though so can't vouch for the quality). And of course there's the SKX / Turtle Seiko divers too. (And the Orient Ray / Mako). But in the sub $200 pricepoint there isn't really that much choice when it comes to dive watches.

    Im not really sure what happens to KickStarter brands once they've fulfilled the pledged orders though. Are they now just 'a company' and will take in regular shipments of the watch to have some ready to ship when ordered? That part is a bit unclear for me, but I think they're probably worth checking out if you like the idea of a titanium diver. It's certainly very light on the wrist.

    My white version arrived today but my lume fill pales in comparison to yours - I'll be sending a message to Ross tomorrow to enquire but yours look a lot chunkier than mine. I'll try and get some photos up later for comparison.
