That said, in contrast to TZ, the Halios business model effectively works on upfront selling of the whole production run. I presume offering bezel flexibility would come at the cost of either eating into profit margins or increased retail price.
    When it all works on pre-orders, it's easy to get the numbers right. When you don't work on pre-orders, it's guesswork.

    I agree with this. Don't see the point of the watch being 1000m water resistant and really thick ... 1000 ft and 12mm much better !

    At the currently proposed case height it is pretty much a non-starter for the smaller wrist ...

    I'm in the same boat. I'm actively searching for a bi-directional 12-hour bezel watch because I work with people in different time zones, but I don't need 1000 meter water resistance and never will.

    The original is a bit of a contradiction: the case is made for serious diving, but the bezel is made for traveling.

    Still both the original and the Smiths are gorgeous.

    I think there are a few in the same boat. I would love to see Eddie keep this watch as thin as possible. I think the last spec showed 30ATM so there's hope for us yet.
