Yes it's really amazing for a 30+years old technology. I tried to take a photo with 1second shutter, just to capture it beating (like we get 8 beats a second for a 28,800bph auto movements) and all I got was a clean sweep, it's beating so fast i can even capture it, hence the 300Hz claim..

The Corvus Bradley Dive Watch

What it doesn't mention in the webpages above is a free replacement of the watch case-back with the rectified "sattellite" typo, an upgraded sapphire crystal insert bezel with clear PVD for the bezel ring and case-back.

When I saw this watch and got wind of the free upgrades I was wondering to myself if I should still hold out for a S$15,000 Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Diver. Sure, the Corvus doesn't have the brand name recognition that BP has or the three barrels the BP has to give the FF an 8-day power reserve. But for the moolah and the almost fanatic eye for detail and faithful adherence to the original design, I was sold! :$gone:

Mine's #68. :thumbsup:

Congrats on your purchase, a real beauty it is, too bad out of my budget. Wear it in good health bro!

I like this Luminox Fibre Diver Series and intend to get one by year end - either the 3101 or 3105. Yellow (3103) is too striking for me. :$gone: Do not know what is the price of it and hope someone who knows can enlighten me. THanks.
