A full steel series is expected 1st Quarter of 2010. Prices TBA.
Looks cool.. Wonder what movements are those..

Ahhh... Here's the surprising bit...

They are using the ETA Caliber C01-211.

Image

Already used in some of Tissot's mid-range line of watches. Based on the Lemania 5100 so it should be very robust and reliable.

Caseback - common to all 5-models thus far; mineral crystal.

I wonder how the lume on the indices and hands are like?

Btw, can anyone advise what can be done to test if anything has been damaged from all the battle scars? And can anyone tell me where is the service centre in Kuala Lumpur?

Here's a recent shot of my 2-year-old Omega Sea Master Planet Ocean 42mm with the 2500C. The darn bracelet was just too flashy when in uniform so I swapped it out with a black NATO band.

Not exactly my beater. But I find myself putting this on everyday sub-consciously even when the other watches beckon and on the winder. It sure has been to some places with me other than my SD or the Blackwater MMT.

I can't help but to agree what's been shared on WUS. Never heard of them, whatever the price.

Recently discovered... This place has been mentioned more than a few times. Recently, a colleague and a good friend just got a PAM 90 from them. Nothing out of the normal except for the much lower prices. Not related to them in any way and I'd still advise that any watch purchase is best done so up-close and personal. Caveat Emptor!
